Rashad is pretty damn dope, right? Well, take that dopeness and cube it, and you get his recently-formed crew, The 3rd Power. The group’s inaugural feature on our pages, Arp finds Rashad handling production as well as vocal duties. In addition to contributing a smooth guest hook, the independent singer/songwriter crafts a compulsively head-noddable synth/sample backdrop for the surefooted flows of his colleagues, whose identities I wasn’t able to uncover. Debut set Attack of the Drum is slated to drop soon via Elev8tor Music. Fans can, of course, keep it locked for further singles leading up to the set’s currently-unscheduled arrival.
