Shaheed- Clap Your Hands video - November 14th



Hip Hop Artist Shaheed brings his unique blend of music and rhymes to the Birmingham Public Library’s Atrium on Thursday, June 19, at 6:30 p.m. He will be accompanied by Supreme, the Birmingham disc jockey with whom he has collaborated on his latest album.

Shaheed’s latest album, Health, Wealth, and Knowledge of Self, is a unique collection that combines excellent beats-reminiscent of early hip-hop pioneers- with highly emotional lyrics and complex rhymes. His executive producer, Supreme, mixed most of the album with help from March the 5th and Heron Sparks.

According to one reviewer, this album is “guaranteed to move body, mind and soul…and remind you that Hip-Hop isn’t dead.”

The Birmingham Public Library is excited to host such a dynamic and passionate artist for BPL@Night. Renowned as a crowd-pleasing performer, Shaheed is sure to put on a show. Supreme will accompany him on the record board.

The Atrium at the downtown library will provide a unique atmosphere with its echoing acoustics that will no doubt lend itself to Shaheed’s hip-hop sound. This event is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Shaheed – Health, Wealth & Knowledge of Self
Shaheed returns with his sophomore album, Health, Wealth & Knowledge of Self, an album that reminds you of why you fell in love with hip hop. Topics range from love, obligatory emcee braggadocio, to the current state of hip hop. Shaheed hails back to a time when an emcee was not just a lyricist, but also a party rocker; interspersing old school party chants within his intricate rhymes. Bringing a message of positivity and Islam, you’ll hear no mic nonsense here.

At times jazz heavy, the self proclaimed “Jazzhole” selected beats that your favorite emcees can’t seem to find (maybe they should come to Birmingham).The majority of the production is handled by Supreme, with March the 5th and Heron Sparks contributing as well. The title track is a reworking of Pete Rock & CL Smooth’s T.R.O.Y., which Supreme augments nicely with some great keys work over the infamous Tom Scott sample. Shaheed reunites with longtime collaborator Heron Sparks for “You Just Might Like,” a track that’s guaranteed to bring the subconscious head nod great hip hop tracks are known for. The listener is invited to hear Shaheed engage in verbal gymnastics AND go to the skating rink on California producer March the 5th’s “Wherever U At.”

A solid album from start to finish, Health, Wealth & Knowledge of Self promotes exactly that. This is an album that’s guaranteed to move body, mind and soul…and remind you that Hip-Hop isn’t dead. Pick it up at www.myspace.com/shaheedtawheed
