Hasan Salaam – 1911
On the heels of releasing two critically acclaimed projects (2008â€™s â€œChildren of Godâ€ and 2011â€™s collaborative effort with Rugged N Raw â€œMohammed Dangerfieldâ€ which featured the well-circulated cut with Immortal Technique â€œBreak Of A Starâ€), Hasan Salaam returns with a new EP â€œMusic Is My Weaponâ€ (appearances by Steele of Smif N Wessun, Chace Infinite, Reef The Lost Cauze, Eternia and production by Snowgoons) which is scheduled to be released on December 6th
While Hasan already spends a great deal of time doing community outreach (he organizes food and clothing drives in New Jersey every month), he is using his EP to spearhead another cause he is very passionate about and hoping it can help change peopleâ€™s lives— literally! Hasan will be donating all of the proceeds from the release of â€œMusic Is My Weaponâ€ to the â€œIt Takes A Villageâ€ foundation to help aid the building of a school, medical clinic and clean water well in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa in an effort to provide change to a Country that remains one of the poorest and least politically stable in the world (Hasan saw this first hand in 2010 as he became the first U.S. Hip-hop artist to perform in Bissau as he headlined a concert there to promote freedom of speech).
On Monday October 31st, Hasan will release the video for â€œ1911â€ and we will include more definitive information on the â€œIt Takes A Villageâ€ initiative
