(Granted I only own the...

Raashan Ahmad February 13

            Oakland native Raashan Ahmad is perhaps the most congenial artist to ever walk the face of this earth. As a member of the Oakland hip-hop collective, Crown City Rockers, Ahmad exuded positivity as he effortlessly rhymed over funk-da-fied bass lines and colorful keys. Ahmad has been performing for years and only recently really started blossoming on his own. That has required a ton of work....
