Quotes & Highlights
“[The group] infuses a highly musical sensibility into basic b-boyisms. The six piece outfit throws down for the cause with an admirably honest effort that shows, more than anything else, their dedication to the art form… anyone who’s caught one of their live shows already knows the fevered intensity the group can bring.” —San Francisco Guardian

Comprised of stellar emcee Raashan Ahmad, producer Woodstock, keyboardist Kat O1O, bassist/producer Headnodic, and drummer Max MacVeety, Crown City Rockers formed in Beantown’s Roxbury section during the late nineties and later relocated to Oakland, CA. Reaching astonishing achievement with their two full-length releases, Mission: One and Earthtones, they have recorded music that seamlessly fuses all of the group’s sonic facets. The albums overflow with Raashan’s battle raps, poetic musings and emotionally fraught tracks about life and love.
Crown City Rockers has toured the globe extensively, and fostered a passionate fan base throughout the west coast and beyond. Being proclaimed “Best Hip Hop Group in the Bay” by both the San Francisco Weekly and _San Francisco Guardian _is a testament to their loyal local roots.
