    SPECIAL GUEST JIHAD ABDUL JAMI

    in Poetry

     
    With everyone and their mother dropping a Mix tape these days, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. But with one listen of Jihad's “Unorthodox-The Mix tape”, it is clear to see why this MC clearly stands out! With a passionate flow reminiscent of Tupac, wordplay that evokes Biggie, and the fiery delivery of a preacher, Jihad is what the rap game has been craving for a long time! Born in 1979 to parents who were  migrant workers in the orange groves of Florida, Jihad was introduced to hip hop by his older brothers in the early 80s,who were themselves aspiring rappers. From break dancing to beat boxing, he fell in love with the art form. Since penning his first rhyme at the age of seven, Jihad has never given up the dream to display his lyrical gift before the masses Having recently released “Unorthodox-The Mixtape”, Jihad is hard at work writing and prepping for what he hopes will be his official debut,”Unorthodox-The Album”. Currently an unsigned artist, he is striving to secure a recording contract so that he may take his music to the next level. From Face book to Sound Cloud, to DatPiff, he is constantly pushing his music and staying in the face and ears of the people practicing Muslim, Jihad hopes to reconcile his Islamic beliefs with his passion for music. Taking his message of hope and salvation around the world, while at the same time being a voice for the voiceless that are struggling and suffering in society. It is his belief that music will be the uniting force that will bring the youth together to take back the planet that has been corrupted by those who have preceded them. Jihad, a rapper, a preacher, a revolutionary.
