In early 2014, Grown Folks Music was afforded a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with a legendary musician, songwriter, and producer Kashif. GFM was tasked with helping to develop Kashif’s online presence in conjunction with the launch of the production phase of his landmark vision: The ten-part documentary series The History of R&B Music.

In late September of 2016 the music world was shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Kashif. While Kashif may no longer be with us in the flesh his music and spirit live on. This page serves as tribute to not only the work that Kashif was able to complete on his vision before transitioning, but also hope that it will serve as a catalyst for the music community(fans, musicians, labels etc.,) to come together to ensure that the film will be seen as Kashif hoped it would be.
