Shaheed and DJ Supreme Present “World Of Water”

When it comes time to get back to the basics with some old-school, feel-good hip-hop, look no further than Shaheed and DJ Supreme. These two sages of the game are here to school you—in rhyme, wisdom, and generosity. They aren’t gate-keepers of the craft, but compassionate teachers who crack open hip-hop up to new generations, sharing its ability to motivate, heal, and inspire. They’ve proven their grit and gifts through their multiple LPs and live performances alongside acts like Scarface, Jurassic 5, and The Jungle Brothers. Over the years, they’ve transformed this raw talent into their own special brand of heartwarming, head-bobbing do-goodery, dropping bops through their label, Communicating Vessels, and launching community initiatives through their non-profit K.R.U. (Knowledge, Rhythm, and Understanding), based in Birmingham, AL. Catch the next iteration of Shaheed’s smooth lyrics and DJ Supreme’s soulful production on their upcoming LP, The Art of Throwing Darts.

Exhibit by exhibit, their smiles and swagger grow as they research and rap alongside the two emcees. As always, they keep it real and keep it fun—never over-hyping themselves as they wave and welcome in anyone who dares to care for others.
