Rassy Bugatti is a joint. Unfortunately, he’s also currently sitting in the joint, fighting a case which could have him serving football numbers behind bars. On the bright side however, the Stinc Team co-founder is putting out some of the most original L.A. music today with the help of GTL and some of the west-coast’s best producers. Together, they created “Million Dollar Fugitive” a collection of songs which tells the story of a joint, flexing his credentials, and showing how he keeps it creamy whether he’s on the run or sitting in a cell.
I talked to Rassy about The Stinc Team’s influence on L.A.’s current sound, who he grew up listening to, his relationship with Drakeo, how the album came together, when he’s expecting to be released and more.

Do you think the D.A. has a grudge against The Stinc Team? And Why?
