Ras Kass Bought The House Down At Plus Gallery in Newtown, South Africa





This past Friday saw the West
Coast legend Ras Kass perform in front of a packed Plus Gallery
(Newtown), as part of his South African A.D.I.D.A.S Tour which was
proudly brought to the country courtesy of KOOL OUT in association with
Butan Wear, ADIDAS and Redbull. 



Hosted
by Reason TheMass, the show kicked off with electrifying performances
from Gin-i-Grimes and Gugulethu's finest, Driemanskap, who have been
riding a good wave of late, with singles from their debut album I'qhabukhile I'nyongo doing mad rotation on radio stations and their breakout video for ‘S'phum'eGugs' receiving mad airplay.



The highlight of the show was of course Ras Kass, performing a well constructed set, with tracks from his debut album Soul on Ice to his current offering A.D.I.D.A.S (All Day I Dream About Spittin). 
Dude definitely knows the art of keeping an audience jumping. Shout out
to DJ Salam Wreck for his fresh selection. Props for the dope tribute to
Nate Dog.


There
was room for improvement in the sound quality which didn't do Ras Kass
or the rest of the artists that night any justice. With several
misdemeanors by inebriated fans (with Ras' jewelry getting jacked), all
in all it was a dope show.
