Florida Producer/MC, Rahim Samad has been making waves in the Tampa Hip Hop community since the release of his first album "Freedom/Resurrection " , back in 2004. Considered a classic in the area, The WeeklyPlanet/Creative Loafing magazine gave the album 4 out of five stars and said the record sounded fresh compared to much of the redundant rap albums out at the time. Videos promoting singles off the album were released for "On the Corner" and "Ring of Fire" and helped establish Rahim in the area as well as set a new precedent, since it was very rare that a Tampa artist would release quality videos to support their album. Samad began working on his 2nd album titled Travel Properly. The album was finished by early 2008 and was released independently on Rahim's label ( that he owns and operates) Vault Classic Records.
The first single released off Travel Properly was the street Anthem "In the City"
