Never heard someone rock the mic before? Not entirely sure what rapping even is? Then I can’t fathom how you ended up browsing The DJBooth. Still, you could hardly ask for a better introduction to the topic than R.A. the Rugged Man‘s new single, on which he exhibits the very Definition of a Rap Flow. Over Dev-1 and Marc Niles‘s throwback grooves, the underground mainstay delivers intricate verses packed with references to the Golden Age greats. Singer Amalie Bruun provides vocal support, and R.A.‘s own comedic, cameo-loaded visuals round out the package. For more, check out the emcee’s Legends Never Die LP, out now on Nature Sounds.
