Featured artist: Ras (X) – itzdaras!

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Ras (X).

How did you decide to become an artist?

Ras (X): This stems back to me being a teenager. I remember hearing 2Pac’s ”All Eyez On Me”, Noreaga’s ”Banned From TV” and Canibus. Those were the reasons i started rhyming and producing. There’s many more reasons, but those stick out to me.

Always remain humble no matter what, because everything can be taken away. Also, remain true to yourself & your craft. Try not to compromise.

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I got a lotta projects lined up, such as a new album (X)-tremitieZ droppyn june 30th this month. The follow up is Da (X)-troadinaire which is a double album followed by an untitled album. all these projects are produced by me. I’m constantly producing beats. I released 2 albums over the past 2 years, (X) Markz Da Ras in summer ’13 & X.o.X – (X)-cellyn on (X)-Cellence in 1st quarter of ’14. Been producing and rhyming since around 98-99. All material can be found at

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes i would. But it would depend on how much creative control i have over my material. and of course money.

Any last words?
