R.A. the Rugged Man Talks Past Label Issues, Rawkus Censorship, Rhyme Patterns & More

R.A. the Rugged Man may be new to some, but the insane spitter from New York has been doing his thing since the early 90's. Over the course of his career, he's seen pretty much everything one can see in this rap game. And during a recent sit down with Access A3C, R.A. breaks down his past deals with labels and Rawkus Record's censorship, shares some insight on the behind-the-scenes duties as an independent artist, details the list of emcees who have influenced his rhyme pattern and more.
