Black Martian, formally known as Lord Kareem, was born in Chicago Illinois on April 11 of 1973. Hasaan Kareem Moody the only child to Leonard and Jessica Moody, loved to play sports, and video games. He started listening to Hip Hop Music in 1988. His favorite MC was KRS one. He listened to the underground show, and got inspired by NWA, and ICe T. He thought the profanity, and ghetto swagg was dope. 
He later moved to Las Vegas in 1991, where he completed High School. He went to UNLV for a couple of years, then CCSN, where he Discovered the Dungeon, a local Las Vegas Studio, that the hip hop Magazine the "Source" wrote an article about. Local Artists used the Dungeon to get Vegas Hip Hop out to the world. 
He recorded his first song there in 1999, called 'The Weed Ain't Ready'. He wasn't ready so he went back into the Lab, and moved to Los Angeles in 1999 to get into the biz on a full time note, with group member - Ron Carter. 
He developed his style and craft in LA, battling LA mcs. He met a producer, from New Jersey named A-FS. They did a song together, and the rest was history. A-FS became his main Producer. He also met a great singer named Jeremy. They also did songs and concerts in Los Angeles. 
Black Martian and business partner A-FS leased a club called Gold Fingers in Los Angeles, where local hip hop acts could showcase their music. They headlined all the shows, and got a piece of the club! 
He has recorded 4 studio albums, done many shows, (HardRock Los Angeles, Mixxed Nuts, HA, HA Club, ect.), now "Green Album" his 5th album is ready to blow up! He changed his name to Black Martian in 2008. 
Black Martian is a metaphor for the black MC, which can be out of this world. The style, the movement, the life, is thinking outside of the box! Going against the grain. Advanced, rhyme skills, technology, and spirit. 
Alien Hip Hop!
