about

"...Quest-Rah's production style is East Coast meets Middle East, with snapping snares over Arabic instrumentation. It's a nice combination of familiar and exotic, adding a twist to the usual hip hop sound...."

"....The whole theme of the album is looking to the past to understand modern problems, blending in elements of Islam, Middle Eastern mythology, and current issues like the Iraq and Afghani wars. In the same way that the Wu relied on chess and kung fu to tell their stories, Quest-Rah and crew uses the "1001 Nights" and other Middle Eastern stories to reinterpret life today. This allows the MCs some extra room to be creative and dress up their political message in much more colorful clothing...."

"....Quest-Rah represents a population that doesn't get a lot of air time on hip hop radio, and I appreciated both his viewpoint and the Middle Eastern flair he adds to his solid hip hop beats...."

about

QUEST-RAH UK

Quest's sound is born out of struggle, celebration and life-lessons. It's a blend of the fine elements of Hip-Hop production and MC'ing - coupled with deep messages and an oriental twist.

Quest's work is a cinematic experience through the speaker, focused on quality of lyricism and beat selection. It's as much influenced by the wonders of nature as it is the harsh realities of inner city life.
