About Sean Rasul
Sean Rasul is an independent artist from Chicago, Illinois. Born and raised on the city's West Side (Division and Central), his journey began "back in the day" when he would freestyle with friends on inner-city blocks. He has since written countless songs and poems and has performed spoken word pieces on stages in the United States and Japan. His musical and inspirational seeds have been planted as far as the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. He has shared stages with Fat Joe, Chamillionaire, Slim Thug, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, and The Ying Yang Twins.
Sean draws inspiration from his ancestors, his experiences, the successes and failures of others, places he's been, and from studying life, using that inspiration to paint a picture. Like it or not, he puts the picture on display. His success is defined by the mere fact that he is actually doing what he loves.
Rasul released his debut album, "The Showcase" (Country Cool Records) in March of 2005. The album was produced entirely by Grammy Award winning songwriter and producer Madukwu Chinwah, who also created hits for Erykah Badu, N'Dambi, and many others. The album was an inspiring effort that blended old and new school musical elements and featured wonderful spoken word poetry, hip-hop, and smooth urban grooves.
Sean Rasul's sophomore indie release, "Ghetto Child" (Live Root/WRIMG) featured progressive hip-hop, street poetry, and soulful/experimental jams. The album's breakout single "Champion" featured on season 1 of MTV's reality series "Taking The Stage." With guest appearances from Big Sid & LD of Playaz Choice, Rasul proteges Neri & Alexis, KaDi of Kinetic Soul Entertainment, and solid production from Texas producers Chinwah (Dallas), Michael Duque (Austin), Yung Chill (Houston), and German-based Kemo of Evocators, the album demonstrated significant growth for the driven and determined artist.
A series of singles were released in 2010 and 2011; "Free" featuring Cicely Walker, "Higher" featuring Stephanie, "The Future" featuring Big Sid and Yung Chill, and the recently released EP entitled "How I Feel" which includes the title track along with the popular acoustic track "Prodigal Son" featuring Alex Loc.
Sean Rasul released his debut mixtape "Newborn" in 2012. His third full-length indie album "Prodigal Son" was released on July 16, 2013 and is available at iTunes and other online retailers.
