R.A. The Rugged Man defends Melle Mel after discrediting comments about Eminem




While 50 Cent, Fat Joe, Kevin Gates, Kxng Crooked and Page Kennedy have all come to Eminem’s defense after Melle Mel claimed Slim Shady’s minted status in hip-hop was merely because of his skin color, the legendary rapper was backed by R.A. The Rugged Man and Public Enemy’s Chuck D.

In his latest post on Facebook, R.A. writes: “Before HipHop was a $100 billion industry MELLE MEL was there creating it and witnessed every great MC and crew on the scene. He lived it in its purest rawest form before capitalism took it over completely. He does not have to agree with where corporations took what he helped create.”

Then Suffolk County, New York-born rapper continues spitting out his thoughts in the comments: “People get mad at Melle Mel for speaking his mind and what he actually believes… But they love it when folks just repeat the same takes over and over just so they can fit in and not burn any bridges… Scared of the industry…”

Chuck D has also come to the defense of Melle Mel after he received backlash for his recent comments about Eminem and Kendrick Lamar: “Understand Melle Mel was so dominant over the rest of the pack in the first 5 years of records its hard to comprehend for born after MC folk. Its why I call him Wilt Chamberlain and Wilt had a crate of critiques for the rappers after him including ME. Just Let Mel be Wilt lol.”

“Gotta have tougher skin and be GREAT not just popular. Few got it harder than what MEL tossed At myself and KRS . Just MAN up and keep it moving.” he added.
