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.
