John Austin IV (born September 26, 1973 in Carson, California), better known by his stage name Ras Kass, is an American rapper. He is also a part of supergroup The HRSMN along with: Canibus, Killah Priest, and Kurupt.
Soul on Ice
From a young age, Austin was influenced by hip-hop, inspired by a variety of old-school rappers including Ice Cube, Rakim, Scarface and KRS-One. His first album, Soul on Ice, was released in 1996. Taking its name from a book by Eldridge Cleaver, Ras addressed racial relations in the same manner, most notably with "Ordo Abchao" and "Nature of the Threat," songs dealing in militant Afrocentricity. The album was released on Priority Records, as was his followup, Rasassination, with beats from Easy Mo Bee and appearances by RZA, Twista, Xzibit, Mack 10 and Dr. Dre. Its lead single, "Ghetto Fabulous," featured Dre and Mack 10 and was pushed by a lavish video shoot; the album received generally positive reviews, and shortly the MC announced his third album, Van Gogh.
