The Celebration of Ras G Ras G created a sound universe in and of itself. Hailing from Leimert Park, an epicenter of African American art, music, and culture in Los Angeles, his music went on to help define the sound of L.A.’s beatmaking scene and beyond. Using Roland SP-404 samplers and a vast music library, Ras G influenced friends and fellow musicians such as Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Linafornia, and many others. Roland and V-MODA are partnering with Poobah Records, dublab, the family of Ras G, and Roland Lifestyle to celebrate Ras G at the Poobah Record Shop in Pasadena, CA, on April 4, from 3-7 p.m
