Rashid is widely regarded in the world of SA Hip Hop with his contribution to the culture and game not going unnoticed.
The East Rand, Johannesburg-born rapper grew up in Thokoza and studied Industrial Engineering at Wits University.
However, his love for the bars and poetic verses superseded that of engineering and he has been been making records ever since as well as the discovery of exciting acts such as Gigi Lamayne.
Rashid is also one socio-conscious act who has stayed in touch with such subjects that resonate with the common man including race, justice, freedom and equality.
However, Rashid has also commissioned such dope records as “Summertime,” alongside Maraza, Du Boiz, Chazz Le Hippie, Kid Tini, Siya Shezi, Clara T, Notshi & Megmafia.
Other creations of his includes “Bring Back Our Land“ alongside Black Dillinger, Blaklez and Big Zulu, “Jaiva,” with Zakwe and Earl W Green, “Beat The Odds,” which featured Fortune, as well as “Let’s All Get Down,” with Chazz Le Hippie, MarazA, Siya Shezi, Simba and Gupsy Warrior.
He only extends his impressive streak with the “The K-Word” album; making it 11-tracks of some of the stunning scorchers already listed above.
Importantly, the “The K-Word” album is an exciting follow-up to other such exciting Rashid projects including “The Arrival,” “Emceeing Is Believing,” “By Any Means Necessary,” and “RA – The Son of God,” just to mention a few.
Only thing is with this body of work, the content comes through as valid, the exciting lyrical lines mesmerise as a core Hip Hop ensemble, while the support of other fantastic acts shine through.
