Hasan Salaam - .1911

The concept behind Hasan Salaam's EP Music Is My Weapon is the belief that music can be used as a powerful tool in the pursuit of freedom, justice, and equality. With the release of the project, Hasan is aiming to prove that music can change people's lives, literally. All profits from the sale of the EP will be used to fund a school, clean water well, and medical clinic in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa. In November 2010, Hasan became the first U.S hip hop artist to ever perform in Bissau. On the same trip he worked with the young artists, taught creative writing to the youth, and headlined a concert to promote freedom of speech. The Music Is My Weapon project is the next step, in an effort to provide change to a country that remains one of the poorest and least politically stable in the world.
