Isaiah Rashad - (Set time: 8:45 PM)


Isaiah Rashad is a Chattanooga, Tennessee born songwriter/producer, that’s a hybrid of new and old school Hip hop and abstract soul. He was raised primarily by his mother and his step father. Rashad was submerged in hip hop at a very young age.
Rashad first began rapping seriously in 9th grade, while he and his friends would record on old mac desktops w no mics. After high school, he went to Middle Tennessee State University, first with the thought to become an audio engineer, but then settled on sociology. After flunking out of school, he lived couch to couch with his friends and begun to record music. In December 2012, Rashad started gaining attention from various record labels and A&R’s, by releasing many free singles on Soundlcloud. In March 2013, Rashad signed to Carson, California-based independent record label Top Dawg Entertainment.

On January 28, 2014, he released Cilvia Demo, his first extended play, via digital distribution. Cilvia Demo was met with widespread acclaim from music critics and debuted at number 40 on the US Billboard 200. Following the release Rashad was named to the 2014 XXL freshman class. He then spent most of 2014 on the Oxymoron tour as direct support for ScHoolboy Q. After a year hiatus, on September 2, 2016, he released his debut studio album, “The Sun's Tirade,” which peaked at number 17 on the Billboard 200. Rashad continues to record music while he preps to kick off his Lil Sunny Tour this January 2017.

DMV rapper .idk. (Ignorantly Delivering Knowledge) has been on a hot streak since his standout year in 2017. His 2018 single "No Wave” featuring tour mate Denzel Curry produced a catchy, bass-heavy track that lead to over three million Spotify plays. A more recent drop however, was IDK's braggadocios "Lil Arrogant" with Joey Bada$$ and Russ which immediately landed in the Top 10 on SoundCloud and continues to rise.

After releasing the critically-acclaimed album IWASVERYBAD in partnership with Adult Swim, embarking on a sold-out European tour with Joey Bada$$, and an explosive performance at the inaugural Rolling Loud SoCal festival in December, he was rightfully named one of the Best New Artists of 2017 by Pigeons and Planes.

IWASVERYBAD is a vivid autobiography of the 25-year-old's life: it explores the narrative of IDK's adolescence - a journey of loss, redemption and eventual triumph - retelling the moments that led to his teenage incarceration and confronting the loss of his mother. Featuring guest appearances from Chief Keef, Swizz Beatz, DOOM, Del The Funky Homosapien, Yung Gleesh, Mother Marygold and more, IWASVERYBAD earned a spot on several major publication’s "Best of 2017" lists including Vulture's Best Albums of 2017 So Far, Genius' 50 Best Albums of 2017, Noisey's 36 Best Overlooked Albums of 2017, and DJ Booth's 50 Best Hip-Hop and R&B Albums of 2017.

Most recently, the young rapper released new single “Star” and embarked on the “Mad Man Tour” with A$AP Ferg and Denzel Curry, performing in cities across the United States.
