Ras Kass has announced that he is no longer part of The Four Horsemen, a super group that also consists of Killah Priest, Canibus and Kurupt.

In May 2011, the group revealed that it would release it’s official album that summer, but the LP failed to surface. RZA was said to be producing the album, which was also rumored to have a collaborative track with Slaughterhouse.

Statement below.

“It’s been weighing heavy on me for a minute, but I have to make an announcement. After discussing with some of the people in my group and some of my other friends, things have just gotten a little too complicated and out of hand, and some things, I don’t agree with. And so I’m officially resigning out of the Horsemen. It is what it is. I’m not going to make too many more comments about it, but the bottom line is, I’m no longer part of the Horsemen. I have relationships with certain people, but some things are just too complicated and not worth the drama that’s constantly popping up. I stand firmly with dope lyricism, dope people and I think everybody’s talented, but at this particular point, there’s a lot of shit I don’t agree with, so I have to step out of it. All respect to everybody. I’m going to continue doing what I do, making my music and fucking with who I fuck with. I wish everybody the best, but I think this is the best decision for me as an artist and as a man. So there it goes. I am no longer part of Horsemen. One love, that’s it.”

    All four emcees have classic songs under their belts that cannot be denied. We all have ran the Canibus debate into the ground so no need for me to touch that topic again. Kurupt with Daz mad great tracks in the 90s and I have heard a verse here or there that is okay but nothing to write home about. Ras Kass too, great songs in the 90s and some hits here and there, he seems to sprinkle greatness over the years but fails to achieve any momentum that brings him back to the spotlight or to peak my interest for very long. Killah Priest, the most consistent out of the four since the 90s still has made a lot of LPs and songs that I don’t care for at all. Heavy Mental of course was classic, there are several others I really liked over the years and I am looking forward to his next LP too.

    ^^^I personally think “Heavy Mental” and “Soul on Ice” are both terrible albums by two terrible emcees. Killah Priest and Rass Kass are too of the most over rated underground emcees ever. Neither one of them can ride a beat for shit. I don’t care how “deep” the shit you spit is if it’s off beat, rushed, and/or flat out doesn’t rhyme. B.I.B.L.E. is an ok song, but that’s by far the best song of Killah Priest’s career. Sorry if I’m ranting, I just get worked up when I talk about both of these dudes because I can’t stand anything either one of them have ever done.

    by the way that wasn’t supposed to be shit talk at Dayz, just sayin’…

  • Carl says:

    Ras might as well give up judging by the lastest beats he has been spitting over. Really horrible music. HRSMN would have been relevant when they first collaborated but no interest now.
