Rast RFC “Across West 3rd Street” Limited Vinyl-Only Release

Back in May, Rast RFC emerged from the shadows to make his debut in the hip hop world with Across West 3rd Street. A reflection of the era that raised him, the project resonates with the grittiness and grime from a more turbulent time in New York City. It’s unpolished, to say the least, but reflects that hip hop can provide an escape from reality, in which the artist can channel their aggression, aspirations, and emotions through music.

Now, Dope Folks Records (whose catalog primarily consists of underground artists from the late ’80s through ’90s) is teaming up with Rast RFC, Nah Right, and Mr. Bawno Records for a vinyl-only release of Across West 3rd Street. The LP includes a die-cut DJ sticker cover and will be limited to 300 copies— never to be repressed. You can pre-order the LP now, which will ship in early September via Dope Folks Records.

If you haven’t checked out Across West 3rd Street yet, you can listen to it here. Make sure catch Rast RFC when he opens for Your Old Droog on September 3, and peep his latest release “No Justice No Peace” below.
