N.Y.C. emcee Rashaann channels the old school on his latest release Far From Home. The title track clocks in at over 8 minutes, and, right out of the gate, Rashaann raps quickly reflecting on his past and present, encouraging through the lessons he’s learned. Given the length, you can imagine there is movement, though we feel there is not enough variance in his delivery or the smooth jazz instrumental. “Unfinished Business” features an exciting crunch rock guitar on a loop. The song sounds like a cypher by De La Soul or Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, with multiple guests and fluid verses. “Times Like This” is emotional and observational, with enticing soul samples spiced up with Rashaann’s jokes and wordplay.
