Peace World. I am proud to present the 1st single from newcomers, Sheff’s Kitchen from their debut self-titled EP, which is to be released during the 1st Quarter of 2013 and is executive produced by Substantial,. Just Watchin’* has Knell Rashad (the duo’s MC) jostling with the nearly impossible task of viewing life objectively. Over his brother, Kenju’s esoteric boom-bap production style, Nell spits about witnessing the desperate state of affairs and and how as we want to affect change we begin to reconsider the part we play in our communities. Raw introspective rap remains and Sheff’s Kitchen plan to carry the torch.
*Just Watchin’ is co-produced by Substantial
More info on Sheff’s Kitchen:
Sheff’s Kitchen provides an intriguing perspective on life by viewing it from the inside out. Knell Rashad delivers captivating, eclectic, potent, introspective lyrics that resonate in the hearts and souls of people. His background in the hospitality industry and in the field of education, in addition to his community service experiences grant his message relevance with socially charged subject matter that centers on faith in God. Knell Rashad’s refreshingly abstract style compliments Kenju’s unique syncopation. Kenju’s curious rhythms invite you to reminisce about the early 90’s boom bap with an edge. This Maryland based duo of blood brothers aims to stir your soul and engage your mind; which are the main ingredients in their weighty recipe.

Peace World. So over the last 2 or 3 weeks, I’ve found a lot of inspiration to get back in to my visual art again. Above is just a little taste of what I’ve been working on. It’s just a simple pencil sketch of my daughter, Serenity. I drew it during Hurricane Sandy.
I’ll try to post a piece of my art once a month going forward. New and old.
Stay in Peace & Stay Inspired.
