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.
