Rahat: A Seraph’s Gift

Born in Bangladesh and raised in the Bronx, Rahat is a hip hop artist who firmly believes in controlling the fate of his own music by serving as a one man army to promote himself and manage his own career. Having fallen in with a bad crowd during his life in school, Rahat quickly allowed himself to be mixed up with drugs and a little taste of small time gang life. Since breaking free of the chains pulling him into a life he knew he didn’t want for himself, Rahat understands the importance of being the captain of his own destiny, and has used his music in lieu of drugs as away of relieving stress.

With music inspired by his own life experiences, as well as the friends he has lost either from his drug-filled past or to death, Rahat has turned his music into a true way of living. Rapping since he was in middle school, as a way of impressing his girlfriends, Rahat now sees it as a form of stress relief and a way of telling the stories of his life and situations growing up in The Bronx. He has recently placed many of his most cathartic songs on his brand new album “A Seraph’s Gift”.

The Album Cover For A SERAPH'S GIFT By RAHAT

His songwriting is almost flawless, and his style works so well because Rahat, still is a young man who remembers the past vividly, now that he and all around him begin to face the responsibilities of an adult.

Because his youthfull, clear voice is suited perfectly for “growing up” songs, it may be hard to imagine this rapper addressing other topics in a similarly convincing manner. But Rahat proves doubters wrong with ten skillfully executed songs on this album.

Obviously, if you need to hear the hardened criminal in a rapper’s voice, you’re politely invited to skip this album. The non-confrontational, endearing persona he creates on “Take Me Higher” is maintained throughout “A Seraph’s Gift.”

But don’t even think about comparing Rahat’s at times, thoughtful innocence to moronic gimmickry. If anything, Rahat is the young thinking man’s rapper, who makes rocking the mike and serving fresh food for thought in the process, a priority.

If any comparisons are in order, Rahat could be seen as a combination of old school rappers like Slick Rick, Young MC and The Fresh Prince, with whom he shares a knack for telling stories and rocking parties. The album opens with “Future”, where the plot starts to unfold in no time. Rahat sets out on a mission to create a spot where he can do his thing, his way.

But Rahat isn’t just an observer, he is also a participant. People who may be lulled by his boyish charm may be surprised to hear him profess his carnal desires so frankly:

“Let me hold you close, yes let me just cluch you
Let me feel you here, yes let me just touch you
Let me feel you in my blood, let me feel you just rush through
Let me feel the place of warmth, everytime you say I love you”

On this album, Rahat throws a couple of parties himself, with some fat beats which certainly form a great part of the appeal of “A Seraph’s Gift”.

The production shared by Sinima Beats, Danny Lifted, Tronik Beats, Life and Death Productions, EmotionL Productions, Definite Beats, and DJ SOS, concocts a slamming combination of kickass beats, sprawling strings and funky keyboard stabs while Rahat and his vocal collaborators turn on the heat with some tuneful interpretations.

Bronx Rapper RAHAT

In sharp contrast to most rappers, who claim that “Gangstas Make the World Go Round,” Rahat dedicates his songs to all the ordinary people who are or should be doing extraordinary things. Take a listen to “Fall Silently”

“You can’t find happiness through another person’s eyes.
Only you can feel it, so stop the anguish and the cries,
Why should you have to prove yourself to anyone but you,
You’re the only one who lives in your skin, hang it true”

On “A Seraph’s Gift”, Rahat comes up with some intriguing deliveries, a conversational yet highly melodic flow, paired with liberal but concise rhyming patterns.

Lyrically, he is able to explore an argument over the course of more than one or two bars, which sadly is a rare quality amonst his contemporaries.

This all makes for an interesting rapper to listen to. Add to that, some solid songwriting, excellent hooks, clever use of background vocals and a powerful sound.

And you end up with an extraordinary album from a young independant rapping artist.
