This is R.A. the Rugged Man. My new music video "WHO DO WE TRUST?" featuring Immortal Technique is now on YouTube.
Watch it here now: https://youtube.com/watch?v=OqgIKOXykHo
This is my first ever collaboration with Immortal Tech and we get into some deep political content on the track. This is the latest single from my album "ALL MY HEROES ARE DEAD", which is now available worldwide. The album also features Chuck D of Public Enemy, Ghostface Killah, Slug of Atmosphere, Ice-T, Brand Nubian, Kool G Rap, Vinnie Paz, Inspectah Deck, M.O.P., DJ Jazzy Jeff, Chris Rivers, A-F-R-O, Onyx, Chino XL, Masta Killa, and more.
Proof. Ask me anything!!
I was thinking about this last night. There are definitely a few ways to conceive of this, but specifically I wonder what singular events or moments had the most impact. Here are a few I came up with (in no particular order):
Drake vs Meek
Kanye’s rollercoaster of emotions
Migos performing on Ellen
6ix9ine’s rise and fall
Guwop outta jail/ Gucci clones
Nicki’s verse on “Monster”
I just wanted to share as I’m so excited!
Edit: I am absolutely overwhelmed by the love, supportive messages and awards from you all thank you so so much! I am very secretive about my journey so to receive this level of support has blown me away and means more to me than I can put into words thank you!
And to anybody who’s asked for the secret unfortunately there are tough days and days when you want to completely give up but it’s all in the mindset combined with patience (even when it feels never ending) and always remembering you know your body best and above all else believe in yourself and what you’re capable of that’s all I did and even though I still have tough days I couldn’t be happier with the results 😊
Every time I see NCFOM or TWBB I immediately think of the other. I have no idea why because as far as I know there's nothing connecting these films. Is this a common connection others have made between these movies? I'm wondering if anyone can articulate why two seemingly unrelated movies like this can somehow be paired together mentally.
And on that note, can any of you think of other movies that share this sort of Phantom Connection phenomenon?
I just love wasting my weekend on flawless only to have Bungie fuck me with This kind of loot . This isn't Call of Duty.
Edit: Yes, HFG is an okay perk, but it should be a mod not a hard perk
Fuck bungie: "Has no effect on Sniper Rifles" Per June 2020
> Hipfire Grip > >*1.2x aim assist falloff.
>*+15 aim assist.
>*+1.7 degrees precision hip fire angle threshold.
>1. By default, when hip-firing a weapon the center of your reticle must be over a target in order to get a crit, otherwise aim assist will give you a body shot. This change gives you a little leniency, so if the center of your reticle is not directly over a target you will still get the crit if you’re within this angle.
>2. Has no effect on Sniper Rifles.
Meredith and Seth are happy to be back together, while Heather has an awkward Valentine’s Day with her ex-husband and Lisa spends time with her family at the aquarium. And after Jen plans a surprise birthday party for her husband and doesn’t invite Mary, Whitney hears that the other women are talking about Jen behind her back and things get heated when she decides to tell Jen the rumor during Sharreiff’s birthday party.
Since a similar thread (made by my old account) is on the front page, I figured I might as well start up this year's version. What's going to happen next year?
[EASY MODE] As I said last year, Drake once again breaks streaming records with Certified Lover Boy. It's going to be a typical Drake album, although it'll be slightly better than his last three releases. The features will be somewhat weird.
[HARD MODE] Travis Scott's Utopia breaks sales records, but is critically slammed. It is snubbed for the year's Grammys, continuing a long tradition of the Grammys pissing Travis off - this time, though, he's had enough. Travis goes full "fuck the mainstream" mode in 2022, ironically crafting his most beloved album.
[NOSTRADAMUS] Kenny Mason blows up to DiCaprio 2-release JID/Taboo-era Denzel Curry levels of popularity with his second album thanks to an Off Deez-esque hit collaboration with a much larger artist, as well as a phenomenal outing on his second project in general.
[WISHFUL THINKING] Kanye West drops DONDA in early February. Kanye's rapping is closer to his feature on Go2TheMoon than anything else he released in 2020, and the production and guest spots are, as expected, phenomenal. Kanye's career gets what is quite possibly his fourth wind at this point - before he squanders it by not being able to focus on one thing at a time.
[GOD PLEASE] Once again, I ask that Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan finally reconcile and start working on Tha Tour Pt. 2. Also, Harry Fraud lands at least three beats on THE SCOTTS. Please.

Rock music has a looong history with heroin. It took many of the greats like Joplin, Cobain, Hendrix, Morrison, etc.
Jazz and Blues music arguably has an even worse history with the stuff.
Hip-hop, for the most part, has stayed away from this shit even in the midst of the worst opioid epidemic the country has ever seen.
I know one of the dudes in $uicideboy$ is a recovering addict and it seems like Dex is/was off the food recently. Other than that, I can't think of another case of a rapper getting strung out on the heron. Rappers talk about selling heroin, selling percs, popping percs, but never doing the h.
Idk, just curious what people think the reason is for this.
What are some hip-hop lyrics that you feel have aged like milk? I'm not thinking about lyrics like that one Ross verse:
>Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it
I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain't even know it
But more like Rocky's verse off of 12. Telephone Calls from the first ASAP Mob tape:
>Call the young lord A$AP Bari, he legit (Moneybag)
And the young boy Ian Connor off the shit (Young Lord)
Fuckin' with them boys out of Harlem or the 6
This is Gosha
Bari being caught on video sexual assaulting his assistent, Ian Connor being a rapist and Gosha being a child predator. This verse just captured some of the worst people in the fashion business into one verse. Couldn't have aged worse imo.
or Tay-K's amazing 2. The Race verse:
>Fu-fu-fuck a beat, I was tryna beat a case (Gang, gang)
But I ain't beat that case, bitch, I did the race (Skrrt, skrrt)
As hilarious this whole case was, his verse was used against him in the court.
Are there any other examples of this?
