Biography

Christian “Thaahum” Abrokwah Bio

Christian’s unique style makes him a much needed artist in the music industry. He describes his style as supraliminal Hip Hop; “supraliminal” meaning beyond the realm of consciousness, to induce a sensation. That is exactly what he does in his music. Noticing a gap between the positive sounds of underground Hip Hop, and it’s more popular mainstream counterpart, he’s always had a vision to bridge the two. His ability to smoothly put positive words to commercially appealing beats make him that
bridge between underground and mainstream Hip Hop. Sticking true to his vision he picked the alias “Thaahum” as his artist name which is a cuneiform word meaning intellect.
He has done custom songs promoting projects for some mainstream media such as View Askew Productions, Sony Home Entertainment, Rosario Dawson’s graphic novel, The Occult Crimes Taskfore, and National Lampoon’s. He has worked with such industry talent as multi-platinum producer D-Maq, former Rocafella Records artist Amil, Imani Coppola, and film writer/director Adam Rifkin. He also licensed a few of his songs or the Showtime series “Look,” which debuted with the number one Nielsen rating for it’s time slot on October 10, 2010.
Hearing about his positive music, mentor and film producer Don Boyer, placed Christian’s song “A Matter of Choice” in his film The Power of Mentorship (2007), starring Bob Proctor and Marie Diamond from the hit movie The Secret. Shortly after the film was released Christian got the idea to put out his own project similar to the Secret and the Power of Mentorship that would be geared for the Hip Hop audience. He thus came up with the Inspiration on Fire mixtape series, in which he describes as “a musical journey in the subconscious mind to unlock ones’ deepest potential.” For the series he interviewed writers with different spiritual backgrounds asking their perspective on personal development. Their answers are then mixed in with songs he wrote on similar topics. The mixtape se is available now on Thaahum.com. His current album, Monsters Ball, is available now on iTunes and at Thaahum.bandcamp.com.
He further bridged the Gap in his own hometown's music scene by creating and featuring in the first all conscious HipHop cypher video called "The 2013 Arizona Inspiration on Fire Cypher, which has received over 3,000 views and climbing on youtube.
Most recently his music was liscened for the January 2013 Showtime series "Reality Show."
The independent artist also moves to inspire and heal on and off the mic as well. In January 2009 he received his level one certification in a spiritual healing art called “The Language of Hyperspace,” a healing modality founded by Stewart Swerdlow of Expansions Publishings, which involve mind pattern analysis, dream analysis, and healing through the use of color, tone, and archetype symbols. Besides emceeing, he has also done freelance journalism work for various publications, including having his own column, “Keneteph’s Korner,” on film writer/director Kevin Smith’s site, Quickstopentertainment.com.
