R.A. the Rugged Man Explains Why He's Never Worked w/ Eminem

I will always enjoy an interview with R.A. the Rugged Man. Despite being a little nutty, the man is an O.G. in the game and knows his Hip-Hop shit. I digress though.

Crustified Dibbs sat down with PosseTV and spilled the beans on a variety of topics, including why he named his last project, Legends Never Die and what it represents, if he ever thought Biggie would go on to be one of the most iconic artists in Hip-Hop, growing up in Long Island in the 80s and his inspirations.

He also explains why he's never worked with Eminem yet, stating that due to his competitive spirit (which every rapper shares), he once said he'd crush Eminem -but not before saying "Well Paul Rosenberg has my information. He knows how to find me."

    R.A. > Eminem

    Eminem is a pop sellout just like the artists he bashed in his earlier songs. R.A. would crush his ass too.

    A lot of people have never worked with eminem why would this loser be any different and get an opportunity lol. Inb4elitists

      An opportunity too? Really? Maybe RA never wanted to work with his gimmick ass. Dude was ill but chose the route of exactly what he hated on fools for.

    Here's what Biggie said about RA in a 1995 interview...

    R.A. The Rugged One: The white boy??!! The one that I did the jam with??? That’s who you talkin’ about? Two…might be a three (out of ten), I did the song, they paid me a lot of money, that’s why I did it. The beat was knockin’.

      LOL RA had better bars on that track then Biggie did

  • Jimmy Grinar

    Take away the fame, media, and record label pressure and think about the life stories and the legit Rhythm & Poetry (rap) skills Eminem and Ra have. I believe this would be one of the best collaborations up to date. When it comes to real rap Rugged man and Shady, they're sitting on Everest.
