Indie/underground hiphop pioneers together for the first time- ever!
Ahead of his new album release, R.A. The Rugged Man has dropped his third single featuring Slug of Atmosphere ‘Golden Oldies’
The track is deliciously retro but at the same time makes an important commentary about the longevity of music from yesteryear that has 'no expiration date' verses the faux celebrity lifestyle, commercialism and throw away beats. Great music will stand the test of time, and 'Golden Oldies' is a banger of a track!
Also here RA talks about the collaboration (in his own words, and as ever entertaining way!) R.A. The Rugged Man Talks Atmosphere + New Slug Collaboration "Golden Oldies".
R.A. The Rugged Man and Atmosphere are two of the most important names in underground hip-hop history. Amongst the original architects of the independent hip-hop revolution, both of these iconic artists have defied the odds to thrive for decades in the ever-changing rap landscape. Now, R.A. The Rugged Man and Slug of Atmosphere are joining forces for the first time ever to bring some much-needed joy to listeners during these trying times. Featuring a hook by famed singer Eamon, the historic collaboration “Golden Oldies” is a feel-good trip down memory lane from two legendary emcees who are only growing more relevant with time. The nostalgic anthem is the latest single off R.A. The Rugged Man’s highly-anticipated album 'All My Heroes Are Dead', following the recently released music video "Wondering (How To Believe)". Available worldwide on April 17th 2020, the album's newly revealed tracklist features a staggering number of high-profile guests, including appearances from Chuck D of Public Enemy, Ghostface Killah, Immortal Technique, Ice-T, Brand Nubian, Vinnie Paz, M.O.P., Kool G Rap, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Inspectah Deck, A-F-R-O, Chris Rivers, Onyx, Chino XL, Masta Killa, and more.
