[I couldn’t find any pics online at all and don’t have the tape on hand so this video is here because the second emcee is Raggedy Man making a rare appearance on youtube.]

So what we have here is a nice demo tape by Raggedy Man of the crew called Gravitation1, which you may remember being mentioned by Chino XL somewhere on his Here To Save You All LP and being featured on the posse cut Waiting To Exhale off the same Chino album. That’s honestly about all I know about this guy besides another really nice demo he did called “In My Own World”, that Stretch or Bobbito played, and a couple of freestyle appearances he made on the show through the years. The estimated date of these recordings is somewhere between 1992 and 1993, and that’s guess work. If anyone out there has further info or music by Raggedy Man or by the Gravitation click, please do leave a comment.
Thanks to Digital Stimulation again for this one. As always, we hope stuff like this will help to bring an artist out of obscurity and connect him with his audience and/or we hope that other people with rarities will be inspired to bust out them old tapes and get in on the demo sharing while it’s still going on. So please, youtubers, if you’re gonna take songs from here then at least give a credit and link back to here or to the T.R.O.Y. forum so that others who have demos and radio show tapes know where to go to share them.
Moving right along, Digital Stimulation also blessed us with a folder full of everything else he could dig up that is Raggedy Man related. Enjoy!
