Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Raza just released a hot new single titled "Prayers Go'n Up" off his upcoming debut album dropping 9/5/2020. The single has already accumulated 10k+ views in one week. His new album includes features from artists such as Mark Battles and Futuristic. 

Raza is a 2020 Full Sail graduate with a Bachelor's in Audio Production. The multi-talented artist produced, mixed & mastered the whole album. Overcoming many struggles Raza's motto is "Turning Pain Into Power". This artist has his own unique style of music combining conscience rap, alternative hip hop, along with new age rap. Raza draws inspiration from artists such as Logic, Ace Hood, Lecrae, Phora, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Nipsey Hussle, Tory Lanez, e40, 2pac, and Nas.

Check out this hot new single below!

Raza is an independent hip hop artist and motivational speaker from Auburn, California, a small town outside of Sacramento.

While Raza is new to the scene, he is quickly gaining traction with weekly streams of his recent single “Yaa Ouu” up by over 200% on Apple Music, Spotify followers doubling over the course of 11 days and an increase of over 13,000 listeners in just one month with the release of single “Better Days.”


Born and raised in the greater Sacramento area, Raza had a rough start to life and was in the foster care system. As the first person in his family to graduate college, Raza carries a Bachelor of Science in Audio Production from Full Sail University.


He now spends all of his time as an independent recording artist releasing fresh, original music that is identifiable for its deep lyricism and beats that make you want to move. When not making music in his studio, Raza can be found sharing his story and music in schools, juvenile halls, and at youth conferences to inspire others that they too can turn their pain into power by making positive choices now to shape the lives they want in the future.


Raza is actively booking shows, features, and speaking engagements. Please reach out to booking@realrazamusic.com for details. Follow the rise up @realrazamusic on all social media platforms.
