RIGHT TO BARE ARMS
Right to Bare Arms represents politically charged, hardcore hood be-bop with a flair of dirty south grittiest. Their unyielding and unforgiving raw lyrics report the realities and revelries of street life in New Orleans, before and after Hurricane Katrina. All intertwined with a unique blend of militancy, history, party antics, and boom bap. Creating a web of Hip-Hop music reflecting 500 years of slavery pains, ghetto tragedies and recession woes.
Before the storm, RBA was a fixture at exclusive hip-hop events and open mic competitions. Crowd stirring appearances at Apache Cafe and ground-breaking performances at prestigious ATL Events such as "Dilla Day in the A" held at Cloud IX keeps their fanbase noticebly expanding. Due to their popularity, collaborations, and affiliations at least one or all members have performed in some capacity as opening acts for Nas, B.o.B, Verse Simmonds, Kid Cudi, Public Enemy, Young Dro, and Krs One. Having appeared on New Orleans’ video show “Phat Phat and all Dat” has help build a visual and musical relationship with their fans. Along with their own music video for smash single “Kawasaki” they have also participated in the critically acclaimed documentaries Underground Streetcar , wtf: an okayplayer documentary, and Crack City DVD. Once said by a well-known New Orleans radio personality, ”They remind me of 95’,96’ hip-hop with modern day flair and swagger.” If a subject is out there they are not afraid to speak on it from Bush negligence in Katrina aftermath to strip clubs to everyday hood trauma to building better education for kids.
The Right to Bare Arms movement is gaining momentum. Blazing a path never seen before with every step being measured only in forward motion. Stepping on any and every person, place, or thing in their way. Don‘t get stepped on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
