After whetting people’s appetites with tracks like “Dope Tape (VLR),” “Urban Decay,” and “Condolences,” Rasheed Jamal has finally dropped SANKOFA. According to Rasheed Jamal, the title signifies learning from past mistakes and never forgetting where you come from.
Whether you’re in the car, the gym, or bumping it in your headphones, this project goes. Standout tracks include “Speeding in Slow Motion,” “Japanese Mammoth,” and the epic “E. Grand.”
If you’re looking to get a taste of the new project live, Rasheed Jamal will be performing at Kelly’s Olympian tonight. The show, presented by the good folks at Green Luck Media Group, also features Lang, BigMo, Naturally Grown Misfits, and will be hosted by LunchTime Legends’ Drae Slapz.

In the meantime, take a listen to one of the strongest albums to come out of Portland so far in 2015.
