Ras Kass Talks HRSMN Album

One-fourth of The Four Horsemen talks the pending release of the group's first album since 2003.

Recently, Ras Kass called into Conspiracy Worldwide Hip Hop Radio to discuss the highly-anticipated album from HRSMN, the supergroup consisting of Ras Kass, Canibus, Killah Priest and Kurupt.

Doing a track-by-track breakdown for show hosts Mista Montana and Menace, Ras Kass also discussed the group's chemistry. "Yeah, I think we work well. Everybody is separate - Kurupt may be gone with Snoop on tour for two weeks or three weeks...but you know, we make the time, and I say 'I'm comin' over.'...and we're recording HRSMN records."

"We just dropped what we call a trailer...it's called 'The End is Near.' It's a pretty dope track that's actually our 'Sintro.'...there are no vocals, it's just words. You gotta read it."

The interview highlighted that RZA would be executive-producing the project, and Ras Kass indicated that the group hoped to land a track from DJ Premier.

Ras Kass says that the group has completed about seven tracks, and hopes to do about seven more. He estimates that RZA will do about two or three, and Premier will produce one. Among the tracks are "Impossible," which features RBX. Prodigal Sunn will also be featured on a track, as will RZA and Ghostface Killah. Pharoahe Monch and Mos Def have been listed as possibilities as well.

Finally, Ras Kass revealed that projects on the horizon for him include collaborations with David Banner and Xzibit.

    U Know The Four Horsemen is ten times beta than the Slaughterhouse...the only reason Slaughterhouse get so much publicity is coz of Eminem...but in terms of lyrical skills, them niggaz ain't got nothing on HRSMN...all Royce do is do punchlines all day, and nothing solid...them HRSMN is deep lyrically...Killah Priest (Heavy Mental) ain't nothing to fuck with, he'll Slaughter that Shady House all by himself religiously, and Bis (Poet Louriette) can Slaughter them scientifically all by himself, as well as Ras Kass historically (Nature of the Threat)...all these 3 heavweight got super deep lyrical track that are legendary behind their names, and Slaughterhouse nada...Kurupt is the only weakest link that they can beat

    Ras beats have been whack for yeaarrssss (coming from a supporter of that A.D.I.D.A.S. album). I'm amped for this one though. That "This Shit Right Here" is a sinful dope beat. HRSM!

    Yo ridiculous! HRSMN and slaughterhouse, hopefully both albums fulfill their potential!

  • rick

    I dont see this coming out anytime soon. With RZA as executive producer, you know thats going to suck. They need a HUNGRY producer(s) thats out to make a name for himself. ...What I'd liek to see is a GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS - Ras, Saafir, Xzibit.

  • curbstompa

    killah priest is to dope for words. everything he comes out with keeps me thinking.

  • mcmastermind

    If that goes down holy shit. We know Killah Priest is one of the most important Affiliates. Listen to B.I.B.L.E. One of the greatest joints ever. This album is looking golden so far.

      Word. The Offering was one of the best albums of the last decade. One song on this project shits on most other albums.

    features id wanna hear Wu Meth, Deck, GFK n GZA on 1 track... Black Thought Elzhi Vinnie Paz over some Stoupe production n thats it, fuck a Slaughterhouse feature, their dope individually as a group not so much... Groups to feature on this would be Money Making Jam Boys Wu Horse Shoe Gang n nobody else...

    RZA executive producer? Preemo beat? Ghosface, Pharoahe and Mos features? If this is all true then I am more exited about this LP than Slaughterhouse's.

  • anom

    Does anyone even care about this anymore? They should have done this in the late nineties. It took em over a decade to do an album. gtfoh

      For your information, you anonymous faggot, Ghostface has released 9 classic albums in a row. IF you ACTUALLY believe that Canibus has released 3 classics in 10 years (which is obviously not true, but let's say he did for the sake of argument), that means he ALSO dropped 3 or 4 that were FUCKING HORRIBLE. Rhyming directly out of a book over pedestrian beats is fucking wack, dog. I've never seen a more talented MC do less with his career.

      dokewhateverthefuckyournameis Canibus has released 3 classic albums in the last 10 years how many has your favourite rapper released? EXACTLY STFU NOW N Meth is already recording his new album THE CRYSTAL METHOD

    • dockevoc

      Cosign. Killah Priest is the only one who's written a decent song in the past 10 years. HEY RZA! WHY DON'T YOU EXECUTIVE PRODUCE A METHOD MAN ALBUM instead of this 1998 snooze fest?

      This is what hip-hop need right now, with all the commercial bullshit.

      Yeah, I was excited about this in 99. Rass Kass is one of the greatest to ever do it, haven't heard his newer stuff, but his old "lost tapes" type material is amazing. Too bad he never took off like he should have.

    he must not have heard about Bus and Preem falling out...no way Preem laces canibus with anything...

    • Anonymous

      Actually you're wrong about that man...Preemo said that he would definitely work with Canibus again, and Canibus said that he had love for Preemo. The whole thing was blown out of proportion by the media in the first place.
