"HP About To Hit The Bay"

Legendary Emcee, Rakim, once said that “MC means move the crowd.” Chicago native, Hassahn Phenomenon has taken the philosophy and ran with it. Currently living in Hollywood, CA, Hassahn is now making his mark on the industry with mixtape appearances and collaborations with artists from LA to New York, and as far as the UK. From major motion picture soundtrack credits in the movie Redline to mainstream press coverage in the Chicago Tribune’s Redeye, True Magazine, and Okayplayer.com, the Phenomenon is the talk of the industry. He has a mean pen game as he just recently wrote a song for the highly anticipated new Jodeci album and quite a few others. He has blessed stages from the BET Soundstage in Orlando to the legendary Temple Bar in Los Angeles. He represents the elegance, tenacity, passion, intelligence, story-telling, lyricism, and stage presence that is lacking in today’s Hip-Hop. He is culturally relevant but by all means a leader and follows his own agenda. Mirroring his own image, Hassahn Phenomenon is here to bring balance to game with is forthcoming album, “Pressure.”

Bio

The lines, "Married to the music, its useless, I'm monogamous," pretty much say it all. With a fierce and undying passion for his craft, Hassahn Phenomenon breathes a fresh breath of life into the asthmatic world of music. Combining all the elements it truly takes to move the crowd, this Chicago emcee is on a path to transcend what is considered to be hip-hop. Staying true to him, Hassahn's music is a reflection of everyday life as he spells it out in his song “The Struggle,” when he says, “In every word I recite, I breathe my life through this mic.” Known to many as simply, HP, he has done exactly that as he has brought new life and energy to the game with his debut release, “Pressure.” Whether he is exhibiting his lyrical prowess, scripting an awe-inspiring performance, hosting his radio show, or giving back to his community through is S.O.U.L Writing Seminar, Hassahn is the prototype for what all entertainers should strive to be.

Like a few of his predecessors, Hassahn is the product of two teenage parents that were determined to raise an incredibly gifted child. Like every other Black youth growing up in the city of Chicago, Hassahn has an interesting dichotomy, in that he witnessed struggle, poverty, and everything that is affiliated with the hardships of the city while simultaneously experiencing the middle class lifestyle that was afforded to him by his diverse village style upbringing. With strong support from his family and by not letting the negative situations consume him, he was able to escape the aforementioned ailments and finish college while simultaneously making his mark on the industry. Like those before him, HP is taking hip-hop and music in general to new heights.

Legendary emcee, Rakim once said that, “MC stands for Move the Crowd.” This is the statement that HP lives by. Whether it is making you think, cry, laugh, stand up, or just making you dance, the Phenomenon is brilliant at capturing the essence of the moment. Following in the footsteps of his idol, Michael Jackson, this impeccable lyricist and performer moves the crowd in a way that transcends race, gender, and creed. It is that desire that has led HP to grace many stages around the country, from the world famous Temple Bar in LA to the BET Soundstage in Orlando. He has performed on stage with the likes of Common, Ludacris, Tone Loc, KRS One, and a host of others. His accomplishments are endless. He has a song featured in the major motion picture, Redline and a few independent movies as well. Not just focusing on the big screen, he has also placed songs on major television networks such as ABC, Spike TV, and the CW Network. With a ferocious pen game, he lends his writing skills to several artists including the legendary group Jodeci, as he wrote a song for their highly anticipated new album. Not only that, HP has secured a sponsorship with Roaring Lion energy drink and he is also the host and co-founder of Cypher Lounge Radio. This Chitown wordsmith, has secured partnerships with clothing companies, ring tone companies, and he has been featured in several entertainment publications, ranging from OkayPlayer.com, True Magazine, to the Chicago Tribune’s Red Eye. HP is also the writer and co-producer of the upcoming documentary film, DEMOS, which features Talib Kweli, Naughty By Nature and a host of others. Hassahn’s accomplishments are truly synonymous with his name in that they are truly “Phenomenal.” His buzz, talent, and pure charisma can only be matched by his undying passion to "Move The Crowd" while changing the world in the process. Also, as a member of the creative department for the Ubuntu Global Village Dream Team, Hassahn truly embodies their message of, “I am Because We Are.”

And he is on a vigorous pursuit to satisfy his aforementioned passion. Hassahn is putting “Pressure” on the industry and society to change its focus and let hip-hop breathe once again. When you hear the words, "With every word I recite, I breathe my life through this mic," then and only then, you will have witnessed a true PHENOMENON.
