Biography

Although the microphone is Hasan's premier weapon of influence, it isn't his only platform to speak to the people. A youth worker, political ambassador and spokesperson combined, he embodies an undisputed dedication, a modern day spiritual warrior, boom bap, sun of the blues martyr; music you just can't help succumb to.
Salaam's voice deserves special mention. It's not easy to describe, but its impossible to forget.
