Rahshon Wilson is a 26 year old American Hip Hop Artist from Richmond, Virginia. He is an entertainer as well as true Singer, Rapper, and superb songwriter. Rahshon was raised in Richmond, VA where he quickly found his love for music through his family. His mother, and 3 of 6 uncles all sang in the Church choir. His mother would sing songs to him as a child,

and he would quickly learn them, and pick up the correct key and pitch. As an only child of a single mother, Rahshon spent a lot of time with his mother listening to her sing different songs, and observed the way she could change her voice depending on the song she was singing. Rahshon's gift of music initially was discovered at the age of five when he began freestyling with his uncles about being a kid, playing, and anything else he could think of.

In his early teens Rahshon began battle rapping all around Richmond, and coming up with neighborhood songs, making him very popular throughout his neighborhood and the area. Also, anywhere people were gathered to rap his Uncle "Kev" would take him and push him to present himself and give his best. This continued Rahshon's interest in music would and would later lead him to do things he never imagined. Rahshon Wilson perfected his craft in Paterson, New Jersey. He spent a lot of summers there with his Uncles "Prince," and "Ruler." They taught him how to have an Northern swag and how to be more lyrical than the rest using his mind and the every day things he saw around him. Rahshon's father played a role in his life early on but he has not spoken to him since he was 15 years old. Rahshon was first noticed by a local producer at the age of 16, at his high school's annual talent show.

Rahshon Wilson then proceeded to do numerous mix tapes and songs with the up-and-coming producers in the area. The person that he worked with on a consistent basis to better his craft was his cousin Timothy "Tylee East" Ketter Together the two of them created Rahshon's brand, and found what music he was most passionate about. That would be love, life, and being a lyrical assassin without cursing to get his point across. He began recording his material with just a microphone and a program on a desk top computer his cousin owned, and from there recorded at several local studios. Rahshon's infectious hooks, and ability to go from rapping to singing is rapidly catching the attention of numerous fans, friends and followers. Rahshon Wilson is a radio ready artist, currently performing at several venues where he immediately captures the crowd's attention. Rahshon is continuously referred to as lyrical force than can rap & and sing as a Lauryn Hill, Andre 3000, or Drake does. Music is his passion. It keeps him going. When Rahshon wakes up in the morning MUSIC is what he wants to do... And, if he could do 1 thing for the rest of his life MUSIC is what it would be. He works hard at his craft, and won't rest until he's where he pushes to be and beyond.
