Rising hip-hop star Que Rasheed is making waves in the local Georgia music scene and beyond with the release of his first musical single “Under Pressure.” The track is starting to gain momentum as it dominates radio waves and online channels across various demographics. 

Quran Rasheed Salaam, also known by his stage name Que Rasheed, is an artist who hails from Gainesville, Georgia. Born on October 16, 1997, the artist was born into a musically inclined family. His parents were both singers in a traveling choir and would bring Que and his siblings to every show. At the age of eight, the musician and performer started getting into music himself, inspired by his parent’s passion and dedication to the craft. “They made me want to work on my singing,” shares Que. For a season, he also played the Trombone, which helped him develop his musicality. 

Growing up, Que would start picking up other musical influences. He fell in love with hip-hop and started listening to artists like Andre 3000, Big Boi, Eminem, Nas, and B.O.B. That exposure would drive his passion for rapping and form his sound. Today, he carries his early influences in his music. What makes Que’s music unique is how closely knit his story is to every song he writes and plays. “The music I make is based on my life, love, trauma, and fears,” explains Que. “I won’t lie in my art for views. What you hear in a song from me is who I am.” Que Rasheed’s music is honest and open, never holding back on what true feelings surface from specific experiences. 

The artist’s latest track, “Under Pressure,” is a testament to the up-and-coming rap sensation’s authenticity and genius. He released the song on Apple Music on November 12, 2020. Today, the EP single continues to make rounds on other platforms and shows. 

Working with Que Rasheed on the track is the platinum producer and Grammy-nominated artist K.E. On The Track, who has worked with other music bigs like Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Flo-rida, Lecrae, and Fetty Wap, to name a few. Working with the legendary producer has been instrumental to the rise of hip-hop artist Que Rasheed. Apart from his music, Que also busies himself with his entrepreneurial ventures. In recent times, the artist started a clothing line of his own named Title Page.

When writing material, Que Rasheed makes it a point to be conscious about his lyrics, ensuring that his tracks contain both substance and style. To the rapper, music isn’t about catchy beats alone. It’s also about sending a message that adds value to the listener. Que shares how his respect for the craft obliges him to bring that level of excellence in his songs. 

Que guarantees that “Under Pressure” is just the beginning. Currently, the artist is brewing more songs that the hip-hop community across Georgia, Atlanta, and all across the nation and the world will appreciate. The artist also looks to collaborate with more producers in the coming days.
