Ras Kass Out Of Prison

Unread post by Kronix » December 25th, 2004, 3:08 pm

Ras kass is finally out, one of the best and most creative out there.
West Coast stand up.

From http://www.allhiphop.com

"Rapper Ras Kass has been released from Corcoran State Prison in California, after serving almost 2 yearsfor a third DUI conviction.

The rapper was released on December 21, 2004.

In January of 2003, Ras Kass was supposed to surrender to California authorities to serve a mandatory 9 months for the conviction.

Instead of surrendering, the rapper went on the run to protest what he labeled a “slave” deal with Priority Records.

His flight sparked conversation in Hip-Hop circles of his whereabouts. In May of 2003, he finally surrendered to authorities, after spending 5 months on the run.

Ras Kass’ highly anticipated CD Goldyn Chyld was never released by Priority, as was the case with his anticipated album Van Gogh, which was shelved due to rampant internet bootlegging.

In May, lawyers representing Ras Kass filed a civil complaint in the Los Angeles County Superior Court against Priority Records.

The rapper’s lawsuit alleged that Priority breached their agreement, by distributing two of the four albums Ras Kass recorded over a period of 9 years.

“I want what is fair; all I want is to create great music, have the proper team behind me, and be the artist that I am,” Ras Kass said in a previous statement. “I am prepared to do what it takes in order to be released from this ugly situation.”

Litigation in the case continues."

I just heard "Won't Catch Me Runnin'" this last weekend. That and "Jack Frost", that radio-only song with the Nat King Cole sample were the shit.
