Description

Ras G is one of the definitive producers of the Los Angeles beat scene, a co-founder of the Poo-Bah label, and hip-hop producer who digs probably deeper than any into the worlds of free jazz, jazz fusion and afrofuturism. Raw Fruit was conceived as a 4-part beat tape which Leaving Records began releasing in 2013.

The music is stream of consciousness hip-hop production made at Ras G's Spacebase studio, all raw loops made from samplers (SP303/404 and MPC 2000XL). As the producer puts it, "freestyle beats I make to smoke weed to. I just make em, record em, and on to the next one, no rules."

The "raw fruit" theme stems from G's attention to wellness and a raw, vegetarian diet. Do the Right Thing was the inspiration for the design created by Seth Ferris. The proposed tag line never made the cut, "Do the Ripe Thing – a Ras G Joint," but we still love it.
