BPL@Night Presents Hip Hop Artist Shaheed with DJ Surpreme
Hip Hop Artist Shaheed brings his unique blend of music and rhymes to the Birmingham Public Library’s Atrium on Thursday, June 19, at 6:30 p.m. He will be accompanied by Supreme, the Birmingham disc jockey with whom he has collaborated on his latest album.
Shaheed’s latest album, Health, Wealth, and Knowledge of Self, is a unique collection that combines excellent beats-reminiscent of early hip-hop pioneers- with highly emotional lyrics and complex rhymes. His executive producer, Supreme, mixed most of the album with help from March the 5th and Heron Sparks.
According to one reviewer, this album is “guaranteed to move body, mind and soul…and remind you that Hip-Hop isn’t dead.”
The Birmingham Public Library is excited to host such a dynamic and passionate artist for BPL@Night. Renowned as a crowd-pleasing performer, Shaheed is sure to put on a show. Supreme will accompany him on the record board.
The Atrium at the downtown library will provide a unique atmosphere with its echoing acoustics that will no doubt lend itself to Shaheed’s hip-hop sound. This event is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome to attend.
