Over the years, San Francisco’s Bay Area has birthed groundbreaking talent like E-40 and Too $hort. Here and now, however, a new generation of musicians are breaking away from the ‘hyphy’ sound that made the area famous, and among these are the funk and soul-infused Crown City Rockers. A welcome change for hip-hop heads bored with the same old (fill in the blank), CCR provides innovative raps with a uniquely fresh sound. On their new single, Restless, emcee Raashan Ahmad bumps this concept up a notch with blazing, brassy trumpets and a steady drum rhythm behind him. This self-produced single should hit the airwaves soon and give Crown City Rockers a break into the big-time. Their as-yet-untitled album is scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2009.
