The next generation steps up to the plate as rising MC Rahzel Jr. bridges the gap with his single “The Culture” produced by !llmind. The track is a celebration of hip-hop culture that finds The Sun God paying homage to the giants of the golden era and giving props to the Okayplayer fam. A born preservationist, Rahzel Jr. lends his killer flow to a true school heater that raises the bar and chants down the erosion of New York City’s storied charm; a pertinent topic as the birthplace of hip-hop continues to experience the growing pains of gentrification and a number of MC’s lead the fight against urban radio’s allegiance to mediocre music. With success on his mind and the five elements in his heart, it is clear that Rahzel Jr. intends to challenge the status quo in his quest to be great. Having !llmind on the track only improves his odds of winning. Check the track below to listen to “The Culture.” Stay tuned for more from Rahzel Jr.
