PROFILE
Rashid's style and precision in drumming is being recognized throughout the music industry...upon meeting Drumhead Magazine's, Jonathan Mover, Jonathan would later write in the magazine..."At the age of 22 Rashid plays with the maturity of someone twice his age. He has a dangerous combination of chops, groove and impeccable time, well balanced and expertly displayed". A self-taught musician, Rashid began playing the drums at the age of three and professionally for churches and choirs at the age of seven. With music being a part of the fabric woven throughout his family, Rashid comes from a long line of musical talent, singers and musicians. He is the son of Pastors and Musical Director at his local church.

As an independent artist, Rashid is currently touring with multi-platinum artist John Legend. He has also toured with Eric Robertson, Goapele, N.E.R.D. Jill Scott, Diddy Dirty Money, JCole and Alicia Keys. Rashid is listed among Cirque du Soleil's roster of producers and drummers.
