Back in July ‘08, Ras Kass made his DJBooth debut with B.I.B.L.E., a mixtape cut that took a critical beating not because of poor musical quality, but rather to the rapper’s Christian-baiting rhymes.  A lot can change in a year, though; as indicated by Dutch R&B singer’s Neenah‘s rendition of Amazing Grace on the intro and chorus of this new cut (the second leak off the rapper’s forthcoming Quarterly mixtape), the street vet’s finally seen the light—of course, Kass hasn’t cast himself as the poor wretch in need of guidance, but as the Amazing guy bringing salvation to the game.  Over Veterano‘s densely-layered mix of vocal samples and midtempo percussion, the rapper comes with plenty of irreverently clever nose-tweaking, this time tempering his messianic rhetoric with celebrity-directed wisecracks that walk the line between off-color and hilariously absurd (i.e., “I could moonwalk across the ocean, getting j*rked off by Lady GaGa, no lotion.”)  Listeners who like their punchline lyricism witty and contentious are sure to enjoy this cut—if that’s the case, keep it locked to our front page for more on Quarterly, tentatively scheduled for release in Q3.
