**Attention all weak desi rappers** The Doctor is in.

Whoa Whoa Whoa. What is this? A Detroit-based American Desi rapper who raps in Urdu? Let me rephrase: An American Desi CONSCIOUS Rapper who spits rhymes in English and Urdu? Oh, and he’s a medical doctor too?

Kamran Rashid Khan (Lazarus) has got MAD talent and props to him for being a talented and consciously gifted new upcoming rapper.

There’s a handful of Desi rappers that I totally dig, but he just topped them all. He has truly delivered with “Drug of Choice”. Lazarus isn’t rapping about how he drives a black Denali while smoking a blunt. Instead, he is illustrating how MUSIC and RAP are his drug-of-choice. Also, LOVING the Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan incorporation. The music video is also very earthy–showcasing young life on the streets of Pakistan as opposed to some gangsters bobbing their head in a club.

Urban Desi Radio gives this guy 5 thumbs up, and I know we will be playing him weeks to come here at “The Beach”.

Did I already mention that he is a physician? (Being totally biased here, but he has just confirmed my theory that you can be in the medical profession and still be an extremely artistic musician part-time). *Ahem*

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s “Afreen Afreen” featured in 2012



The legend Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan lives on in a movie that depicts the world will end in 2012…. if you go to the movie… listen carefully… you’ll hear this track in the beginning… The Elite8 Bro Moiz gave me the heads up… but according to Mixman Shawn… his take on the movie was… “2012 was hella boring…the only part i liked was the beginning…cause they played nusrat track…”
