Ras Kass is a legend in the game. The West Coast rapper is one of the most lyrically adept veterans to hold down the West Coast. Like many artists from the old school that attempted to adjust to the digital age, Kass isn't as popular in the commercial world as some of his peers. Still, his skill on a mic should never be slept on. That's why when Joyner Lucas raps "When you sing, you ain't half bad, but you rapping like Ras Kass," on "Litty Freestyle," many hip-hop heads were confused. Being compared to Kass lyrically isn't a bad thing, although it appeared that Lucas was trying to diss Tory Lanez.
Kass has snapped back at Lucas with a track of his own. He begins "Smoke Break" with a sample of Lucas calling him out before Kass goes in. He begins his assault on a dark instrumental before it switches to Lucas' own "I'm Not Racist" beat. At the end of the song, the Family Guy theme plays and Kass declares that the diss was all in good fun.
Nobody rap like Ras do, clarified
I’d never let it slide, every nigga verified is terrified
Voldemort, he who must not be named
When Prince piss on a peon that’s Purple Rain
T-Pain, I should sing when I’m winning
Litty, that’s just a match that was already finished
Strike once and the flame is diminished
Struck out like nepotism, I just gave son the business
