Isaiah Rashad


It’s not often that you hear of rappers from Chattanooga, Tennesee, blowing up nationally, but Isaiah Rashad is changing that reality. The 21-year-old lyricist is new to the game and focused on one thing: making good music. Probably the only artist to be honored by his fans with a mixtape they created of his top singles and released via the net, TDE’s newest signee is just getting started.  (Photo: Roger Kisby/Getty Images)
