AMHAD, RA the Rugged man

R.A. The Rugged Man drops ‘Golden Oldies’ video ahead of album ‘All My Heroes Are Dead’

In Hip Hop by Josh Hood

Golden Oldies is the third single dropped by underground hip-hop legend and pioneer R.A. The Rugged Man, in anticipation of the release of his latest album All My Heroes Are Dead (track listing and album trailer below) which is due out April 17!

In collaboration with legendary emcee Slug of Atmosphere, the pair lay old-school, nostalgia-filled bars onto the soul-infused production of The Kickdrums, creating a sound truly evocative of the golden age of hip-hop. As such, the track pays homage to legends of the game no longer with us. It pays tribute to those who formed the cornerstone of a genre we all love. For R.A. The Rugged Man, his ‘golden’ era will always be populated with the hip-hop poets of old – the godfathers that laid the foundations and provided the inspiration for a new generation of artists, paving their way with gold.

‘Old is golden / It might be old but it ain’t broken’
