Ras G (born Gregory Shorter, Jr.) is an instrumental hip hop producer and DJ from Los Angeles, California.
He is associated with the record label Brainfeeder established by fellow producer Flying Lotus as well as Poo-Bah Records, a label Ras G co-founded with partners Ron Stivers and multi-genre music producer Black Monk.
Ras G released Brotha from Anotha Planet in 2009. Down 2 Earth was released in 2011.
Ras G's work makes frequent allusions to various Afrofuturistic works, most frequently to the work of Sun Ra. Ras's album "Spacebase Is The Place" is an homage to Sun Ra's Space is the Place (Spacebase is the name of Ras G's apartment, which he has shared with fellow LA artist Flying Lotus). Ras G also samples free jazz and jazz fusion artists such as Pharoah Sanders, Sun Ra's bandmate.
