Title: rassy still crying!!
Post by: .SNEEKlocsta:. on November 15, 2006, 03:12:37 PM
RAS KASS INTERVIEW(11/15): "I ETHERED THE GAME."
ThaFormula.Com - Last time we spoke you were getting ready to drop "Institutionalized," what's been happening since then?

Ras Kass - Really, a lot of the same. I dropped "Institutionalized," me and Dow Jones dropped a mixtape called ďRevenge of the SpitĒ and about 3 weeks ago I dropped another album called "Eat Or Die." Iíve just been working man and really fighting with Capitol Records trying to get past that. I signed a gag order on that but definitely thanks for the support that everybody gives me and make your voice heard man and email them people at Capitol. I used to wear the free Ras Kass T-shirts when I was in jail but Iím really in jail with these people. So thatís my big fight right now as opposed to everybody thinking The Game is my big fight right now. So Iím just trying to iron that out and move on.

ThaFormula.Com - Did that rumor of you signing to DTP really happen?

Ras Kass - Supposedly, I canít even say that I said that. But I canít do nothing till I finish one thing. So there is no other situation that I can get involved with until I get rid of Capitol and they are being real assholes about it. It's just a lot of animosity between us man. Capitol donít like me and I donít like them. Of course its greed, they want something cause they think I might go somewhere else and be a success. Itís just hater shit.

ThaFormula.Com - Do you feel that the Game situation has benefited you a lot?

Ras Kass - I mean I use any situation to try and do the best I can.

ThaFormula.Com - Is this incident with Game as serious as you guys are making it out to be or is this something that will stay on record?

Ras Kass - I canít sit here and talk about those things. This dude violated when he hit me in the back of the head with a bottle. I don't think I'm capable of forgiving that unless I hit him over the head with a bottle, then we can be friends.

ThaFormula.Com Ė A lot of people were disappointed in the video you guys put out on Youtube and wondered why Ras Kass would stoop to that level with the guns and all that especially with what he rhymes about in his music?

Ras Kass - I never said I was so political and positive. I stand behind my decision and what I did. I wouldn't sit here and try to please everybody. I got to do what I feel is right. Cats that know me personally, know that I am of 2 minds. Of course I don't wanna start shit, but if you start it with me Iím in my rights to do whatever it takes to defend myself and thatís just how that works. So all that positivity shit, uh I ainít never not said I wouldnít do this or that. If you hit me, Iím gonna fuck you up. Thatís pretty much how that works. I have said that in my music from day one, so I donít know how positive I was supposed to be.

ThaFormula.Com - How did you end up getting involved in the return of ďUnity?Ē

Ras Kass - Bigga B creating ďUnityĒ gave all artists a place to get their music heard at a time when radio wasnít all that receptive to rap music, they had to come to ďUnityĒ to get it heard. It definitely gave people like me and Xzibit and so many others a place where we could rhyme and be heard. So when Chace and Muggs asked me to do it, Iím here. So rest in peace to Bigga B. I think this is necessary and Iím glad they are doing it. We havenít had anything since itís been away to promote the 16 to 21 year old dude with a dream from Southern California thatís trying to be heard. We donít have what we used to have no more so we need this.

ThaFormula.Com - Have you actually begun recording an official album or are you just doing mixtapes?

Ras Kass - My mixtapes are albums. They are original records with guest appearances. That's what album is. But really, I canít do anything until one thing is finished. It would be a waste of my time to record an album that probably would get dated. Iíll cross that bridge when it falls on top of me, right now Capitol is whatís the biggest thing in my mind. I got to get that over with and then move on.

ThaFormula.Com - Now youíve done 2 diss tracks towards Game. Did he respond back to you?

Ras Kass - He dropped some records dissin' me but they were just some weak shit. Nobody heard them because they werenít that good. He did one called ďPistol Grip PumpĒ and one called ďSoundscan.Ē He tried to say something, but that shit is weak. Until he comes right, which he canít because I ethered that nigga Game, and Iíma ether him one more time maybe if I feel like it. So thatís how it works. I mean I didnít start it but Iím here to finish it.

^ Well he says he didn't diss him. As for ethering Game, this cat did not ether him. He's talking about no one heard the diss Game made same could be said about his. That shit was hella weak. Ras ethered himself cus when it first popped off he said he was not goin to diss him on wax and not give him that publicity he wants. Ras is one of my favorite rappers but dude is dumb for this. He's got bigger things to worry about like getting out of that bullshit label situation and droppin' an album.

You lost this one Ras, you got knocked the fuck out, take it like a man, it happens to the best of us.

Yeah... Ras really dissapointed me with this shit. I've never seen him as this ra-ra cat pulling out guns and making un-inspired diss records. He saw an oppurtunity to jump start his career commercially, but went about it the wrong way. He should have just went straight to wax and used some new material to get at Game. But, he re-used the same disses that: Yukmouth, Joe Budden, Spider Loc, etc. all used on him. It's played out. And, as a Ras Kass fan, I expected a lot more from him.

Ether? Hardly.

Could've have said it better. All the times I spoke to Ras or interviewed him, he seemed so level-headed and not at all the way he's been coming off latelyy.

Ras has always struck me as an intelligent, level-headed dude who's a damn beast on the mic. But with this bullshit beef he made himself look like a damn clown.
