This month’s special contributor to the mixtape is our homie Rashid Zakat, a filmmaker and all-around creative that splits his time between Philly and NYC. He kicks things off with a track that perfectly complements his dedication to exploring music – French Canadian hip hop out of Montreal. Listen in and see why Rashid’s worth a follow below.
About Rashid Zakat
He can craft films. He can shoot photos. His obsession with music means he can deejay everything from the soft opening of a new bar to a really hip wedding. Rashid will make you question the advice to focus on doing one thing really well. Because, after all, the world requires us to be good at lots of stuff.
Start by checking out Negroes of New York, his project dedicated to snapping portraits of people of color in NYC. Then sign up for the Awesome Farm Newsletter, which will keep you streets ahead of people who rely on Facebook for finding out about cool shit. But before you get lost, make sure to bookmark his Intergalactic Beat Tape, which will impress the hell out of the person who wakes up in bed next to you wondering if they made a good decision.
Stay tuned for a new film project from Rashid this spring by following him on Instagram.
