  • R.A. the Rugged Man is a rapper from Long Island who's worked with Wu-Tang Clan, Kool G Rap, and Notorious B.I.G. Now, R.A. talks to Cenk Uygur about "Shoot Me in The Head," a controversial song about the state of the American political system Republicans, Democrats, and news reporting. Why did he choose to spotlight Nancy Pelosi, Keith Olberman, Bill O'Reilly, Fox News, and MSNBC in the song? why does he called Joe Biden and other democrats racist? R.A. the Rugged Man talks to Cenk Uygur about the song, his journey as a rapper, and his new album, "Legends Never Die."

    It's pretty weird when the hardcore east coast rapper come off more thoughtful and mature than the dude in the suit...

    With all due respect to Cenk, They need to have R.A. The Rugged Man interviewed by someone who ACTUALLY KNOWS ABOUT RAP.

    One of his songs he actually goes really soft, at the end of the last verse when he's talking about his pops you can actually hear his voice breaking. And he could have done that verse again without the voice break, but he kept it real and kept it on record.

    The interviewer made sh*t really cringe worthy with all the stereotypical rap jokes, and the unenthusiastic, bizarre questions he was asking "I mean did you guys party, did you guys ever hook up with the same girl..?" = wtf....?. RA could of really sounded of on him, but I'm proud he was intelligent to realise that the interviewer was just "that guy" and RA politely dealt with the awkward situation.

    If people knew RA's background and family story they would possibly listen up more and respect his opinions more.

    The stuff RA is saying about the Democrats & Republicans both being terrible is ringing pretty damn true right now with the whole "Hillary stole the primary" story now having proof behind it.
