Affiliated with ScHoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar, and the whole Black Hippy crew, rapper Isaiah Rashad hails from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Raised with thoughts of becoming a preacher until his stepbrother's copy of OutKast's album ATLiens turned his head around, Rashad eventually began ditching school to record demos. His big break came in 2012 when he joined Juicy J on the 2012 Smoker's Club Tour, then in 2013 he signed with Top Dawg Entertainment, the label where most of the Black Hippy crew landed. One year later the label released his debut effort, Cilvia: Demo, an EP that debuted at number 40 on the Billboard 200 chart. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
