Ras is a testament to the fact that it takes more then just extraordinary talent to blow up in the music industry. Kind of the opposite of Souljah Boi (talent not necessary to succeed on the rap industry). What will it take for a great emcee like Ras to make into the mainstream? I don't know and I wish I did considering what kind of music is popular now.
I plan on adding my name to the list of (credible) great rap stars. BIG, 2pac, Rakim, KRS-1, Nas, Jay-Z, Eminem, etc.... without being shot, killed or dying poor and under-appreciated. HOLLA!

This is Ras Kass' third LP released in 2002. His previous albums 1996's"Soul Of Ice" and 1998's "Rasassination" had a more underground sound than this album, Goldyn Child but the more commercial sound is not too far of departure from his previous works. As the sound on his two previous albums were considered commercial back when they were released.

Golden Chyld has appereances from Mya, Phraoh Monche, Busta Rhymes,Dr Dre,DJ Kay Sly, Xzibit, Saaafir Nate Dogg, Bad Azz & Jelly Roll. This LP is loaded with producers like Dr. Dre,DJ Premier, Scott Storch, Rocwilder,Hi Tek, Battlecat & DJ Khalil and Kon Artist from D12.

Some gems to look for on this album is "FucQup" produced by Scott Storch and "C What I C" ft Pharaoh Monche. Of course the DJ Premier remix of "Goldyn Chyld" is good too.

I also included a couple bonus tracks from Ras' previous albums. Included is "Nature Of The Threat" (probably the Best Hip Hop song ever written) and Ras' first song "Won't Catch Me Runnin". I also added the original Dr. Dre produced "Goldeyn Chyld"

NOTE: Despite what the pic says this album is NOT mixed by Kid Capri. This was the only image of the album cover I could find.
