WHO IS RASHAD? Music and Entertainment Critics alike are asking, “Who is Rashad?” In entertainment, it is recorded that no one man is an island unto himself. However, what other young R&B artist sings, dances, acts, writes, performs, arranges, composes, plays various instruments, and has produced two successful critical acclaim albums already by the age of 18. In his sophomore self-entitled quest, critics are pondering and want to know who is Rashad? The depth and intelligence of a seasoned poetic singer who produces and performs all of his own material. His understanding of musical genres and urban pressures makes him one the south’s top young lyricists ever to grace a mic. Gracing the mic now withstanding, he also models and acts. As a former gifted basketball player at Hattiesburg High School who was known as the “singing baler,” lauded him more acclaim and fan following as Rashad was featured in the prestigious award winning Hattiesburg American Newspaper and other mediums. Rashad has put out for his city and beyond. However, Rashad doesn’t fit that typical mold. He is a bonafide true artist and musical genius and he has the awards juxtapose accolades to prove it not mention sex appeal and a model body to kill for. Recently, he won both the Southeast and Southwest Mississippi High School Drama Festival “Best Supporting Actor” award in 2005, and named to the prestigious Mississippi Theatre Association “All Star Cast” three times for his acting, singing, and danced performance in the Hattiesburg High School play The Katrina Project: Hell and High Water, which is taking the nation by storm. Performing since the age of three, and professionally since the age of eight, Rashad has performed locally and nationally making a dent in the music business. Some of the artist he has graced the stage with are Rap artist David Banner, R & B crooner Keith Sweat, B2k, Omarion, Jesse McCartney, Bow Wow, and K.C. & Jo Jo, to name a few.
