Raashan Ahmad, frontman for fantastic Bay-area soul-groove Hip-Hop crew Crown City Rockers, found a bit of Billy-Squier-meets-Dizzee-Rascal inspiration in the upcoming new year and decided to write a song about it yesterday. Even better, he’s giving it away.
The MC shot an email blast to friends, family and so on, with the track 2010 attached:
Just wanted to hit all my music heads and dj’s before the new years to drop this on you. I was listening to my i-tunes on random today and came across this beat and this song popped into my head, it might work for a spin on new years and beyond. Hope alls well in your world and that 2010 is best yet! Please pass this along!!!!
“..let go of anger, it may taste sweet
but it kills
Don’t become its victim
you need humility to climb to freedom.”
Oh yeah, and have a Happy New Year!
