Raashan Ahmad – For What You’ve Lost (TVLP05)
Out of stock
“For What You’ve Lost” is a heavily collaborative, musical journey sure to give his fans what they’ve been waiting for. This album is rooted in classic hip hop tradition as well as jazz, soul and funk while continuing to push musical boundaries into the future of the genre. Guest appearances ranging from the new soul heroes like Aloe Blacc (Stones Throw) and Noelle Scaggs (The Rebirth) and hip hop veterans like Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), and Count Bass D alongside new school MC’s like Rita J (All Natural) and Stro the 89th key (The Procussions) make this album both diverse and a spectrum of sound and culture. Quickly becoming one of the most sought after MC’s, this new album shows Raashan’s evolution and growth. As pitchfork media puts it, “Raashan Ahmad emerges as one of the West Coast’s premiere MC’s, his flow effortless and vocabulary expansive. He brings an everyman context to his rhymes making the mundane dramatic with a subtle righteousness and around-the-way likeability.”
Special bonus LP : guest by 20Syl (from Hocus Pocus), & remixes by J Boogie and Dj Moar.
