DESCRIPTION R.A. The Rugged Man is one of the most fascinating figures in hip-hop history. His career spans decades, and defies simple narratives. The Rugged Man has been an up-and-coming star, an industry outcast banished and forgotten, an underground cult hero, an independent success story, and an influential master of the art form. Now, R.A. The Rugged Man is back with "All My Heroes Are Dead", a brand new album that stands as his best work to date. "So many of the greats are gone, and the legends who made it out alive are cast aside," R.A. explains. "Society left our heroes and their culture for dead. We have to dig that greatness out of it's grave, and bring it back with an angry vengeance." "All My Heroes Are Dead" features an all-star lineup of hip-hop heavyweights, including Atmosphere, Chuck D, Ghostface Killah, Immortal Technique, Vinnie Paz, Ice T, M.O.P., Kool G Rap, Brand Nubian, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Chris Rivers, Onyx, Inspectah Deck, A-F-R-O, Masta Killa, and more.
