Ras G Releases New Beat Tape

LA's prolific craftsman of blunted, spacey beats, Ras G has unexpectedly dropped Raw Fruit Vol. 2, a new cassette made up of cuts hastily fashioned on his "SP303/404 and MPC 2000XL." Following the release of the series' first volume last spring, Raw Fruit Vol. 2 is said to come with the same agenda; the 15-track tape is described by Ras G as a "blunt-smoking, green-drink-sippin' beat adventure made at my SpaceBase for I&I to vibe out to."

The latest edition of Raw Fruit is out now via Leaving/Stones Throw in both casette and digital forms. A full preview of opening cut "GMO Hoes" can be streamed below, where the album's full tracklist is also included; snippets of the rest of beat tape can be heard via Stones Throw here. In addition to the release of Raw Fruit Vol. 2, Ras G also says that volumes three and four of the series are already "done and ready to go," and can be expected to drop sometime in the not-so-distant future.
