2011 release. For What You've Lost is a heavily collaborative musical journey sure to give Raashan Ahmad's fans what they've been waiting for. This album is rooted in classic hip hop tradition, as well as jazz, soul, and funk, while continuing to push musical boundaries into the future of the genre. Guest appearances from new soul heroes like Aloe Blacc (Stones Throw) and Noelle Scaggs (The Rebirth) and hip hop veterans like Gift of Gab (Blackalicious) and Count Bass D alongside new school MCs like Rita J (All Natural), as well as producers like Stro the 89th Key (The Procussions) make this album a diverse spectrum of sound and culture. Quickly becoming one of the most sought-after MCs, Raashan Ahmad here showcases his evolution and growth. As Pitchfork puts it, "Raashan Ahmad emerges as one of the West Coast's premiere MC's, his flow effortless and vocabulary expansive. He brings an everyman context to his rhymes making the mundane dramatic with a subtle righteousness and around-the-way likeability." Also features 20Syl, Ragen Fykes, DJ Mahf, Silya Nymoen, and Moe Pope.
