Mic Check : Rahsaan a.k.a. God's Favorite Rapper
This weeks Mic Check goes to Rahsaan of Renegade Music/G-Town Music Group. A Brooklyn native, Rahsaan has proven to be one the hottest emcees coming up, not to mention he's one of the greatest performers I've seen on stage thus far. This Guyana born native, is a former menswear designer/spokes model for MECCA USA, which won his collections features on cast members in HBO's TV series THE WIRE. He has opened up on the road for Young Jeezy, Keysha Cole, Dipset, Talib Kwali and he list continues. He was the winner of SO SO DEF's Future Star Talent Search, and flown to Atlanta, GA to perform at Jermaine Dupri's Birthday Party. He has also done some acting in commercials for both BET and MTV. In 2007 he released a Street Album titled God's Favorite Rapper, which included two of my favorite tracks"Little Ghette Boy" and "Nigga What".
On Wednesday January 30, 2008, Rahsaan will be receiving an award at the 1st Annual Underground and Indie (U-N-I) Award Show for BEST MALE SOLO PERFORMER for 2007, brought to you by Shining Star Productions and Music Notes Magazine.
