“Society keeps repeating itself, history keeps repeating itself, ’cause we haven’t learned the basic lesson of respect, love, equality, so society will keep doing it so people will always get shitted on.”-Ras Kass

About Ras Kass

John Austin IV, who goes by the artist name, Ras Kass, is a lyricist and American rapper. He returned as a member of the hip hop supergroup The HRSMN along with Canibus, Killah Priest, and Kurupt in 2014.[1] Ras is also member of the group Golden State Warriors with Xzibit and Saafir. Editors of About.com ranked him #30 on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987–2007).[2] Pitchfork Media called him “one of the best rappers of all time.” [Wikipedia x]. Ras shares his duality with The Love Story and how his passion for lyricism helps him understand the world better.

“I was taught that no matter how fast you go, you still haven’t gotten anywhere. Society keeps repeating itself, history keeps repeating itself, ’cause we haven’t learned the basic lesson of respect, love, equality, so society will keep doing it so people will always get shitted on. Somebody’s going to be the loser, especially capitalism, any “ism” actually.”
