MP3; Nothing to Lose (Elev8tor Remix)
From a Columbus stand point this song is really special. It’s a comissioned remix of a Nas & K’naan collab by Columbus producer Rashad Thomas. K’naan is internationally known as the SOMALIAN rapper. And well Nas is Nas. Rashad is from the Northside of Columbus which has a large Somalian population. K’naan even used to stay in Columbus before he blew up. So Rashad linking with K’naan kinda bumps right. Rashad’s stoked on it. He said, “I was excited when the call came from K’naan’s camp to produce a remix for his song with Nas. These were two artists that were definitely on our list to work with, just so happened that we caught them at the same damn time. Enjoy.”
Columbus, Ohio’s Rashad returns with “The Return” off his upcoming album the Museum. This video was shot and directed by Picture Candy Music. That gorgeous scenery is Alum Creek.
