Born Karim Hameed in St. Louis, writing must have been in Karim’s blood. His mother, Nailah Hameed, was a journalism major in college, and father, Walee Hameed, is a published poet. Encouraging the study of African-American history and heritage among children is one of Karim’s personal passions that he has gained from his family and shines through his musical content. The Atlanta based Emcee is anticipating the release of his 4th project “Beverly EP” set to be released in March 2011. Gotta Be Karim has the lyrical content more powerful than a loaded gun over the beats that get the party started.
Teaming up with Illastrate and Boog Brown, Karim has managed to capture his “Do For Self” lifestyle in his newest single. With the collaboration of the melodic samples, mind blowing lyrics, and head nodding beats, Gotta Be Karim has created another head banger.
