    didn't get shelved........they never finnished one, as they were said to agree that it would not be a good idea due to expectations or something like that......they split on equally........

    but finnish the line..........to double my $/they criticize me for it but they all yell holla.........

    many of you guys fail to understand that it is a business, and the goal is to make money off your art.........also, to an artist, the knowledge that milions of people love your shit , is way more satisfying than staying true to the my music my way mentality........you cannot be a professional musician without "selling out"

    Nobody should talk about Ra not being about money... Anybody see that shitty online commercial with Ra advertising cheap-ass gold fronts? Namedropping himself every sentence and grilling for the camera. Shit was painful to watch.

    I'd buy his album if he dropped one, though.

    No... It wasn't professional at all. It came off as really bootleg. I'm no Ra hater - I love his music, I think he's still dope now and I want to hear an album from him. But this commercial was fucking awful. He started off scripted, then he kinda forgot the script and kept namedropping himself and grilling at the camera.

    This was a few years ago now.
