Biography

Dihsan Striver was born on May 11, 1988 in upstate New York. Having acquired a taste for music at a young age he knew from the first day he picked up a pen and wrote his 1st verse that music was his calling! Given the birth name Umar Najat Islam, He decided to change his government name to Dihsan Striver in April of 2011.The name Dihsan derives from his oldest brother’s first name, Nashid, who was establishing Striver Records before his untimely death in 2006. From that day on Dihsan set out to takeover and make his brothers vision of Striver Records a reality. Striver Records is more than a just a label, its a way of life! "Don't Just Strive, Strive Harder". From Hip-Hop influences such as Jay-z, Kanye West, T.I., J. Cole, Nas, Lupe Fiasco, and a few others, Dihsan takes his heart into the studio and his mind follows suit! He believes his music is an expression of life, and is based upon feelings, and a collection of thoughts from the past, present, and future! As an aspiring artist, and future mogul, he plans on crawling from the depths of what some may consider failure, with expectations of reaching the heights of success. Not only is he striving to reach success in the music business, but as a student of the business minds of Diddy, 50 Cent, and Jay-z, just to name a few, he plans on taking it above and beyond! Aside from countless hours in the studio creating ideas and concepts, he keeps his mind open to future business ventures as well. With over 160 songs completed, Dihsan Striver plans to take the game by storm. Believing versatility is a big factor in music today; he is constantly thinking out of the box and expanding his music horizons. From rock, pop, r&b and of course hip-hop, Dihsan strives to entertain at all levels while still being real to who he is. With daily practice of three principles, Discipline! Dedication! And Determination! Super Stardom is inevitable.

Lyrics

Glass House

Written By: Dihsan Striver

Close ya eyes and imagine
Sittin behind these glasses The windows to ya dreams but only ya eyes can grasp it Tryna lift up, but its chained up...what happened
Hard to give it up, hearts filled up with passion They laughing, they can when they have everything ya lacking Flaunt and they brag, all the fads latest fashions Attracted to the flashin...Lights camera action Obsession kicks in it turns to fatal attraction Strive to get ya name known, but they over pass it Won't call you by ya right name treatin you like cassias Fighting for a chance, to dance, ....get off ya mattress Hard to keep stride when humbleness and pride clashes Time waits for no man you watch as it passes Then try to catch up, when it starts overlapping Waiting for the right time, ya fogging up the glasses Ambition is ya Windex, discipline is ya napkins
Chorus Zilfa Owen: They want to box me in
Looking for a key so they can lock me in But not again This time i got to win
Yeeaaaa
They want to box me in Threw away the key when they locked me in But not again This time i got to win
Dihsan Striver
I'm in this Glass House I'm all alone in here Just me, sitting like a stone in here
In this Glass House This ain't my home in here About to break out and get gone from here
2nd verse:
Close ya eyes and imagine
Sittin behind these glasses The windows to ya dreams but only ya eyes can grasp it Tryna lift up, but its chained up...what happened Hard to give it up, hearts filled up with passion Voices in ya head, ya going crazy from the whispers Want to smoke the noise out u let that marry enter Now ya thoughts become loss, why is this happening Hearts pumpin fast, emotions bound to crash When u think its time to stop, that means step on thee gas Middle finger up man all they'll see is the tags Looking in eyes and all they'll see is the bags Countless nights no sleep, complete the task So you write more so quick the day pass, and the night falls You’ll stop when ya free at last Hopeless, a failure what they view you ass It’s just adds another tracks to ya life soundtrack
Chorus
3rd verse:
It’s time to make this glass shatter Watch it how it falls and see the glass scatters Now ya really thinkin does ya past matter It’s hard to move on to the next chapter, when ya flippin backwards
Life passes, sometimes ull drop out to take the right classes Learn from ya mistakes to earn the right masters Road to success will get you through life faster If you follow ya hearts pastures Create ya own path most follow the masses Can't itemize ya life when you idolize disaster Sell ya soul to the devil become another Casper
.. Give ya dreams to the world, and let ya mind be captured Don't worry, down the road you'll experience a little flurries Grey skies turn to rain a in a hurry Let perseverance be ya umbrella Learn how to weather the storm so there's nothin they can tell ya
Chorus

Perfect Get Away

Written By: Dihsan Striver

Just another day, hey, pass the haze, to broke so we smoke to getaway To a place where the skies no longer grey ok Ook....welcome to the perfect getaway What a day, .....Let’s getaway
1st verse:
Just another day what's up Grab that haze and the Dutch Roll up Grab a cup, break the seal pour me up Its been another long week, every day dread gettin up Wanna tell my supervisor F U I had enough But I hold back, the KIDD needs funds to pay his bills No more elementary welcome to life man it’s...real Every week a check, but always got somethin to pay So I'm ready waiting on that next check as soon as I get paid See these lights, food, rent, gas/ oh don't 4get still need to wipe my ass Say money ain't everything, man show me some proof Either ya down to get it, or ya not no excuse So sick and tired, of being sick and tired Take a hit, to lift me higher My dreams keeps me inspired No bags required, where ya going you'll wanna stay .... Welcome to the perfect getaway
2nd verse:
Just another day what's up Grab that haze and the Dutch Roll it up Grab a cup, break the seal pour me up ....Tired of dealin with this chick, but somehow I can't give her up I wanna take it slow, something’s in life u just can't rush See that crush turned into lust And that want turned into must Honestly her honesty has now turned to mistrust Everyday another fight, hesitant to pick the phone up Now what running her mouth I don't even know over what Should've listen to my mother..girl you nothin but trouble Don't even love ya self, so how u expect me to love you I first met you, you was humble, now ya bougesie and shhhhhh Feelin like mike posner you think ya cooler than this
... Think I care, but I don’t Give u attention, no I won’t Imma go my way, you go yours, ya simply just too much Let the smoke take me away, to a place I wish I could stay....welcome to the perfect getaway
3rd verse:
Just another day what's up Grab that haze and the Dutch Roll it up Grab a cup, break the seal pour me up ...It seems like now a days everyone wants somthin from me .....Oh u havnt heard? U get nothin in life for free Sometimes I think some close people thinks I'm an ATM How hell I'm pose to help I'm in the same predicament Need to be more independent, man up and hold ya own Cause right now ya too dependent stand up or stand-alone Its ok to ask for a hand but u made it a habit There's an age for this negligence u haven't passed it Need to grow up, obviously ya age I'm not referring to Ya content where you are, I guess being broke doesn't worry you I might come off rude, but I'm not tryna discourage you Just trying to encourage you, that stress is gonna bury you ...Let haze take me away, this time I'm going to stay ..Welcome to the perfect getaway
