R.A. the Rugged Man recently called up Sway in the Morning to discuss the controversial track "Make You Famous" off his new album Legends Never Die.

As R.A. explains in the interview, "Make You Famous" is an attack on our modern-day celebrity-obsessed culture. "We live in a society where it doesn't matter if you have talent...it's the more popular, celebrity person that will always get the recognition over true talent." R.A. goes on to cite Ke$ha, Kim Kardashian, and Justin Timberlake as examples of marginally-talented celebrities who get attention more for their fame and looks than for their actual abilities.

Both the song and interview can be heard below.

    I don't think JT really belongs in that group, he's mad talented imo but R.A. is definitely on point with this though

    I feel the exact same way. JT has plenty of talent.

    Did you even listen to it?
    He said "take a kid like a Justin Timberlake you know he can sing, he can dance, he makes good music, he's a talented kid there's no taking it away from him."

  • who cares

    Yea... that quote is all fucked up. R.A. specifically said that JT was talented, but he also went on to say that he is not the most talented person in his genre even if he may be one of the most well-known.
    OT: Great interview. It's hard to say the song is "controversial" though because R.A. isn't on a lot of people's radars.
