Hasan Salaam

Hip-Hop isn't all about violent city life and superficial pipe dreams. But newcomer, Hasan Salaam, knows that best. As emcees are forging a coup de grace, hip-hop is destined for change. But while some retreat and plot their escapes through disillusionment, in real life and on wax, Hasan Salaam aims to be at the forefront of the revolution. His commanding presence holds no punches as he relates to today's youth with honesty and fearlessness. Consequently, misguided portrayals of urban life and a lack of hip-hop with substance on the airwaves has birthed a new emcee.

Rell

Ladies may swoon over the tough-talking city boys, but in the end what they really want is an old-fashioned southern gentleman. A man who understands the importance of chivalry-- one who'll show up on the doorstep with a dozen long-stem roses just because, or will massage her feet after a long day at work. One who'll serve her favorite dinner by candlelight, or cater to her when she's sick.
