So, Ras Kass is currently working on a new “untitled” project that will have “18 or 20″ tracks, and will also feature “guest appearances” and “top notch features and production”. The project will be limited edition, with 1000 CD’s pressed, and 500 pieces of vinyl and will ship “late Spring”.
The cost? $3800. Well, not so – actually the cost of pressing the vinyl and CD’s is $3800, so that is the goal for Ras and company to meet for the pressing of this album. They hope to exceed the goal obviously, so Ras can pocket some of the change.
Pledging $1000 or more towards the project will net you the following:
1) an Ultra Limited Edition set of lyrics to “NATURE OF THE THREAT” Hand-Written by Ras Kass
2) the SIGNED CD and Vinyl of the project
3) 2 Limited Edition clothing items (Save the Ras Kass and Alias Society t-shirts),
4) a phone call from Ras Kass (ask him whatever you want!),
5) a “SPECIAL PRODUCER” credit on the project
6) a shout out of your name on the project
7) free entrance to any Ras Kass performance within the next year.
Yes, the music industry is in horrible shape right now.
But apparently this strategy has worked well in the past with Ras’s Quartely project, so more power to him. However, for a project shrouded in such mystery, a little more detail would be nice if we’re gonna put them dollars up. Otherwise we will just throw them around in the club.
