Rashad coined the phrase Type 1 to describe the Cornel West theory’s musical genre. The band’s music is fused with accents of hip-hop, rock and jazz, and therefore needed a classification of its own. A graduate of D.C.'s Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Rashad has gripped microphones – as a poet and emcee – since the mid-90s. His musical influences – from Wu Tang Clan to Bad Brains to Backyard to John Coltrane – shape his mind-bending verses. His lyrics ask listeners to think beyond typical emcee banter and unlock the creativity and power in their minds.
