With a heart of a go getter, Melbourne Rapper Hakeem Fizzle says it with his chest as he lyrically spazzes out on his comeback track, I Am Hakeem.
I Am Hakeem is a tribute to old school Hip Hop.
Think raw, hyped, commanding attention vibes that gives Cypress Hill nostalgia over a mysteriously dark beat.
Hakeem hits listeners' with a classic, incorporating his own signature style.
His flow, lyrics and cadence are presented with tradition and an added twist of energy.
It's instantly infectious.
His pen game runs the show with puns, double entendres and his character, entailing his own slice of present and future success as he runs through verses over kicks and open, closed hi-hats.
"This is a comeback single to reintroduce myself after I quit music in 2016. It was a means of cementing a place and a voice in Hip-Hop, and showcasing my character so that people can understand who I am. The word Hakeem in Arabic means wise and the lowercase “i” was intentional to symbolise that we are all wise in our own ways. When performing the song live, I encourage people to sing the chorus back for that reason" - Hakeem.
Hakeem stays true to what he embodies. I am Hakeem gives listeners a break from current musical repetitions, with flash backs enveloped in present day echos, the two coexist.
With major plans for 2022, including a festival performance, more releases and potentially his own headlining show, Hakeem continues the momentum.
Y'all better plug into Hakeem for updates on his future shows, and keep I Am Hakeem in your rotation.

Assembling his guys for infantry, BBPSOUL ain't no ghost on the Real Big Wakko produced track, GOAT.
With words loaded with ammunition, his flow is his gun, and when Big Wakko pulls up? Y'all are getting a taste of authentically raw'n'real arrangements, and in this scenario, Wakko's his shooter.
BBPSOUL is for the listeners that take Hip Hop seriously, cause man's ain't playing around when it comes to his creative.
GOAT encapsulates the realest, the confident, determined, focused, the ones willing to sacrifice in order to evolve.
It ain't for the faint hearted, it's for those who feel with their soul.
"This is a reminder that you don’t owe anyone an explanation as to who you are and what you represent,
the true GOATS only worry about bettering themselves to continue being GOATS" - BBPSOUL.
BBPSOUL bodies every beat he jumps on, demonstrating his GOAT abilities, just check his catalogue.
His pen game is wicked, and to a degree, almost heartless in this number. He emanates a concentrated hollowness ... Yet BBPSOUL is anything but empty! His portrayal of savagery is genuine, his words are his weapon as he stands separated from the mediocre pool of mainstream talent ... and the musical production? Solidifies the fact that BBP and Wakko are the GOATS!
"Working with Real Big Wakko I have witnessed him get into a particular mode of making beats,
and it can get pretty intense.
He's a machine. Dude is so cold on every beat he creates" - BBPSOUL.

I feel like I’m just starting to build momentum and get some attention in the city, so Bite Down for me was kind of a way for me to say I’m here to stay, and I got some big plans for the future" - Sami.
