Whenever R.A. Comes to town your guaranteed to get a unique Hip Hop experience. Tonight was no exception.
Decked out with his trademark hat and coat, he hit the stage with a ferocity! Running through a string of bangers from his latest album “All My Heroes Are Dead” ( Check out our Interview with R.A. for a detailed breakdown of the Album)
A sold out Jazz Café was locked in for a 65 Minute wild ride which included having bottles of water sprayed at them, R.A. rhyming in the the audience (which I call the 4D experience!), and members of the crowd stage diving into the audience and having fun! This was controlled chaos that managed to look both rehearsed and totally off the cuff.
Backed on the decks by Hip Hop Back In The Day’s very own DJ Drez alongside Peoples Army trooper Amy True on hype duties. Both in fine form and certainly adding their magic to this live experience.
The Hip Hop veteran broke out some classic cuts from phenomenal back catalogue. R.A quipped about how much UK audiences appreciated hearing the classics and not just his latest tracks like they do in the US.
You could really tell R.A. was having a good time onstage and that energy translated so well. He invited Beat boxers , a freestyle rapper onstage all bringing their A- game and receiving as much love as R.A.
After his encore R.A. closed the show by bringing a selection of ladies onstage to perform his single “Golden Oldies”
R.A. The Rugged Man hasn’t lost a step and certainly lived up to his legendary status as an Emcee who can put on a fantastic live show whenever he’s in town
