RIP Ras G, LA’s intergalactic ambassador, the Sun Ra of the beat scene whose vision spanned alternate dimensions & unseen worlds. A gentle sorcerer, soft-spoken & humble, suffused w/ the ability to render cosmic white noise into something that glided & banged. A giant w/out peer. pic.twitter.com/8rcM5qXizj — Otto Von Biz Markie (@Passionweiss) July 29, 2019
