R.A. the Rugged Man Doom cover art for Coco Mango maticulous Remix by Union

Audio: The Union feat. R.A. the Rugged Man & Doom “Coco Mango” (Maticulous Remix)

The Union Doom R.A. the Rugged Man Meticulous Remix Fat Beats

The closing of Fat Beats NY has left a gaping hole in hip-hop. The void is so wide you could… enough about cavities. Things are still rotten in NY, except in the case of R.A. the Rugged Man and DOOM on the same track, that’s a great thing. They didn’t just lay their signature grit on some hot shit that would’ve made the backpack set pitch a tent on the corner of 406 6th Ave. R.A. and producer maticulous picked up where DOOM and Parisan beatsmiths Union left off on the original. The DOOM version sans R.A., is distributed by the Fat Beats Distribution label carrying the torch of independent hip-hop at its finest, especially overseas where FB (not Facebook) was a magnet for international rap acts by way of its Amsterdam retail store. Euros hold weight! Currency, word is bond.
