A resident of Downtown Toronto, Rashid St. James is dynamic young artist relatively new to the Toronto hip-hop scene, but has quickly made his presence. St. James utilizes a blend of poetic appeal and grime style of rap that has gained popularity within the Toronto Underground scene. Rashid’s poetic descriptive lyricism, witty punch lines and ‎catchy melodies that forces him to stand out and illustrate tales of love, pain and struggles to find belonging.

This project is a follow up to Kayobe’s “Hidden” EP which was released in January 2018

“Rashid and I got linked up by a friend who thought it would be good for us to work together, especially as I had started to branch out into producing more hip hop beats. After I then produced a few tracks for Rashid’s project, I showed him a few Kayobe beats I had, and Knock really lit a spark first. He immediately started writing verses on it and we wrote the chorus together, it was a real organic process. I know he was going through some personal journeys that really helped him flow on it too.”Kayobe

This is an EP with album tendencies…fully constructed and delivered with the utmost care! 5/5  ~ JD

“I wrote the EP during an extremely turbulent emotional time in my life, luckily I was able to connect with Kayobe and channel my emotions and frustrations and record. This entire project was therapy for me.”Rashid St. James
