iTunes Review

For conscious rap fans who miss the gold ol' days of Brand Nubian, X-Clan, and Public Enemy, Hasan Salaam is here for you. A proud Muslim from New Jersey, he's been bubbling up for the past eight years, dropping several quality projects including Paradise Lost, Children of God, and Tales of the Lost Tribe: Hidden Jewels. Down with the 5th Column crew, he rhymes extensively about his faith, corruption in government, and socioeconomic issues affecting the community. Closer in style to Immortal Technique and KRS than the mellower vibe of Mos Def or Talib, he has a deep voice and direct flow that jumps through the speakers and demands to be heard. Production is a refreshingly original mix of rugged beat breaks and well-placed samples, supporting on-point lines like "I rock and roll for the soul of my ancestors and built my dynasty without the Masonic hand gestures / yeah, this is church right here / young, black, don't give a f*ck, America's nightmare." Check out "Shining" (with Steele, Chace Infinite, and Reef the Lost Cauze), "Chaos Theory," and the melancholy head-banger "All Roads Lead Home."

Substance and Quality

Hasan Salaam is a very talented lyricist, but what makes him stand out for me is the important content of his music and the incredible passion with which he presents it. His lyrics exploring and denouncing the particularly vicious brand of American racism and his call for hope within oppressed communities are sharp and moving and something badly needed at a time when the inequality and injustice of this society explodes from every corner. Helping to articulate our experience as oppressed people, Hasan Salaam's contribution goes beyond style, lyricism, and art. I can only imagine what gems will be found on his next project, Life in Black and White. That being said, THIS ALBUM IS HOT FIYAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Is It A Chick

Fire As Usual

What's $8.91 out of your pocket for some dope tracks and the knowledge that you're money -- all of it! -- is going to people in Guinea-Bissau? Not much. Great album, respect to Hasan Salaam and the whole Fifth Column.
