Raashan Ahmad is rolling through your city to perform his newly released Album The Push.’ This new album from Raashan Ahmad is a throwback to his roots, according to Raashan himself, it’s “a return to basics, that good ol’ boom bap, the beats and rhymes It was where I started as an M.C. and I needed to touch that again.” Raashan definitely gets personal in this album, pulling inspirations from deep within his own life’s struggles and point of view, pouring them over some dope beats and old school hooks. Listening to this album brought me back to the very beginning of my love affair with hip hop, that old school vibe where an artist lets you into their process, struggle and reality. In a time where hip hop has become almost synonymous with bling bling, benzes and beezies, this album makes me want to give Raashan Ahmad a hug and thank him for reminding me why I fell in love with hip hop in the first place. If you are craving a reminder of the full potential of hip hop music, then you can’t miss out on this album or the chance to see Raashan throw it down live.
