ras kush: New yorks finnest

unknown gem. to me, ras kush, remains one of the greatest dj’s and preachers of reggae/rock/roots/dub music in brooklyn and new york (you can also catch him in tokyo where he has a specific following – that is if you happen to be there). his group black redemption is only one part of his persona. (Kush at joes pub) I met him the first time at jammyland in NY and attended many of his sets in new york and brooklyn alike. i pushed to publish an interview on him and we ended up eventually recording together many years ago. tonight as I selected songs at a set I thought of him and his wealth of knowledge, so many people came up to me to ask what I played and many of them thoughts went out to ras kush, his kindness and genuine love will always remain with me. by dd
