It’s a Carson, CA affair as Ras Kass and Bishop Lamont link up for this “Bishop”.
There have been a slate of “woke” rapper releases lately. Common, T.I. and Killer Mike are good examples of this. A day before the nation elects its new president, Ras Kass delivers socio-political rhymes in his new video for “Bishop.”
Along with the West Coast rhymer’s message, the song is inspired by the ‘90s most iconic movie character Bishop played by Tupac Shakur in the Ernest Dickerson-helmed 1991 film, Juice.
In the video, helmed by LeftRightCreations, Kass spits bars about not give a f— about social media views and haters who try to inhabit his mental space. The 43-year-old rapper takes viewers on a stroll of Los Angeles as he invites us into his thoughts.
“No f—s given / Bishop from Juice is how I’m living (N—-!) / No f—s given / Bishop from Juice is how I’m living / (Message!) / No f—s given / Bishop from Juice is how I’m living (Bitch!) / No f—s given / Bishop from Juice,” he raps.
“Bishop” is from Ras Kass’ latest album Intellectual Property: #SOI2, which features guest appearances from Bun B, Killah Priest, KRS-One, Torae, Onyx, Bumpy Knuckles, O.C., and the late Sean Price.
The project is billed as a sequel to Ras Kass’ most revered 1996 debut album, Soul On Ice.
