Escape from Alcatraz
Label: EMPIRE Online
An underground all-star from the Bay, Rasco has been putting in work since the early '90s, variously as a solo artist, label owner, and member of multiple crews, including Various Blends and Cali Agents. On Escape From Alcatraz, his fourth solo LP, he delivers rugged lyricism over thick, soulful production. "U Got The Time" and "Real Hot" are both outstanding.
