avatar for Rashid


EVOLUTION. That is the word that best describes the 25-year-old rapper Rashid, who has just released his fourth album: Confundindo Sábios (Confusing Sages). All 15 tracks made Rashid’s tremendous growth as an artist evident to the public and pleased not only his Brazilian hip-hop fans since 2008 but also new listeners. In just two months, Confundindo Sábios sold 5 thousand copies and is already one of the most downloaded rap albums in Brazil during the year of 2013.

If you are curious to know Rashid’s latest work, you can watch the video for his new single “Virando a Mesa” (Turning the Table) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rb9S01f_PkI, a partnership with the MPB singer Daniel Cohen and the hip-hop producer Coyote. It was filmed by Rafael Kent (Okent Filmes) and stars the MMA fighter Rony Jason.

2012 was also special for the rapper because Brazilian specialized media really started paying attention to Rashid and he was interviewed by many TV and radio shows and newspapers; appeared as a special guest on Meus Prêmios Nick (Kids’ Choice Awards); was nominated for MTV Brazilian Video Music Awards (New Artist e Hit of the Year). But this is just what you get when you show dedication, commitment and love for what you do, and that in Rashid’s case is Brazilian Rap.

Rashid rhymes about politics, Brazil, friendship, resilience, love and music itself. Through his unmistakable flow, we get to listen to a sharp point of view very well combined with a dose of optimism towards the future. His distinct personality continuously attracts to his concerts thousands of fans who can be easily found on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Well-respected Brazilian artists such as Racionais MC's, Emicida, Criolo, Natiruts, Almir Guineto, Projota already shared the stage with the young talented Rashid. More recently, the Orquestra Metropolitana (Metropolitan Orchestra of São Paulo) made a series of special concerts having Rashid and the female rapper Lurdez da Luz as lead singers.
