Salim


Salim, born and bred in Baltimore, but infused with universal appeal, has opened for Slick Rick, Method Man, and Black Sheep in prominent metropolitan venues as well as rocked the mic intimately in café-like coves throughout the East Coast since 2004.

Salim, born and bred in Baltimore, but infused with universal appeal, has opened for Slick Rick, Method Man, and Black Sheep in prominent metropolitan venues as well as rocked the mic intimately in café-like coves throughout the East Coast since 2004. As the writer and producer of his 17-track debut album Hip Hop Revisited, Salim has been described as the “embodiment of hip hop’s evolution.” In the tradition of master Griots such as Nas and Mos Def, Salim brings deeply introspective lyrics that encompass a wide range of life experiences. With a desire to incorporate live instrumentation into his music, Salim formed his group, The Music Lovers, in December 2005 and they have been performing together since April 2006. The Music Lovers will begin recording a debut album in August 2007.

Together Salim & The Music Lovers blend the live band tradition with elements of modern hip hop. In addition, Salim is the former host of The Urban Blend Café, where he worked to bring local musical acts to the forefront. His love of hip hop transcends the hype of stage performance, however. Salim has been impacted by artists who span musical genres and generations.

From Public Enemy to Stan Getz and from The Roots to Stevie Wonder, Salim’s list of influences is vast and thus reflected on Hip Hop Revisited. “Bringing balance back to hip hop” is Salim's objective. With continued performances throughout the Baltimore/D.C. area, he continues to attract a diverse listening audience eager to explore hip hop’s higher plane.
