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.
This is the first song featured on DJBooth from this artist. If you would like to hear more, be sure to rate and comment!
