Raashan Ahmad

If you have any doubt about the authenticity of Raashan Ahmad’s hip-hop street cred, just read his self-penned bio, in which he mentions his late-‘80s fade (“not as fly as Kane’s”) and his early ‘90s dance crew, the excellently named Battlekatz, who merged into a rap crew when House of Pain was looking for an opening act for a gig in their neighborhood. After bouncing between coasts through the ‘90s, Ahmad helped formed the Crown City Rockers, the Oakland-based collective he still performs with when not doing solo tours performing what he dubs “chill, soul hip-hop.” Bar Deluxe, 666 S.
