Veteran emcee R.A. The Rugged Man last released an album on November 16, 2004. Since then a black president has been elected (and re-elected) to office, Apple created the iPhone and D4L became a one-hit wonder with Laffy Taffy. Now, almost a decade later, the New York native has released his long-awaited sophomore album, Legends Never Die.
Included on the Nature Sounds release are previously-featured, Booth-approved cuts "Learn Truth," "The People's Champ," "Holla-Loo-Yuh" and "Underground Hits." Joining R.A. on the album are special guests Block McCloud, Brother Ali, Hopsin, Krizz Kaliko, Masta Ace, Sadat X, Tech N9ne and Vinnie Paz, while production is handled by Apathy, Buckwild, Marco Polo, Shuko and more.
