When Naeem was five, one of his mother's friends brought over a piece of vinyl titled The Message (Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five). From that moment on, every aspect of Naeem's life has been submerged in the hip-hop culture.

At age 15, Naeem read The Autobiography of Malcolm X (Alex Haley), which inspired him to begin his life's journey as a revolutionary emcee. Today Naeem stands prepared to begin his assault on Babylon as he translates the plight and struggles of inner city youth in a colonial society. With his debut LP, Unorthodox, in the works, based on George Orwell's classic novel, 1984, featuring production by a who's who of hip-hop's elite producers, Naeem intends to put creativity back at the forefront of hip-hop music. Naeem's current projects include: "The Symbolism Mixtape", "The King and I" EP (Naeem Oba and brikAbrak)"You Are Not One of Us" EP, "the goodKnight" EP, "Suicide Watch 2 Sambodextrus" with Whygee and sunkenstate, Minneapolis Joe with Xperiment and brikAbrak, all to be released soon...
