This is one of my favorite rap songs of all time. Another Favorite is Big Jaz and Jay-Z The Originators.
Hip Hop is a apart of my life because in this song it is so catchy because they are describing a detrimental situation.
I don’t snitch…Listen for yourself.
If you are not paying attention you think they are just bigging up their crew DUCKDOWN.
However, it is an open opportunity for a certain act of…

Change is the move, but as we know the most clever MC’s do not always get Grammy nominations and open invitations to the MTV Awards if they keep it street. This song is one of the reasons I am ***messymandella***
I give men a hard time, but I know we are worth more than what we are given the world. Tough love, makes tough little boys become tough men that take care of their family,community and a pass on a positive legacy. Hip Hop is all some young men think they have, at all cost never replace loyalty over money. The money will come, if they remember the women are not their enemies and also have a mind and opinion that is worth more than Gold.
Jihad Shamir (born January 27, 1993) in Elizabeth New Jersery began his musical exploration when he was seven years old. His music name “Hooligan” was given to him by a group of his neighborhood peers. Hooligan’s first decision to do music was when he learned his father (Marc James Hawkins) was a very great artist and hung around most of the legends from the 80s. Hip Hop is in his DNA, and will continue to an integral part of his development. Different sounds, genres, and samples are collected and interpolated in each musical composition, from this native of Jersey.
Hooligan is very different and has very dynamics, and provides us with thought-provoking lyrics that not too many people in his age bracket, could successfully deliver, and that alone separates himself from his peers.
The talent he brings is also gathered from his experience with shows and performing can only .Hooligan known most for performing on the east coast. Hooligan has been around hundreds of artists that are in the industry now and has also has been invited to performing shows and studio sessions, with many artist from the East Coast.
Hooligan remains humble, because of his motivation and blueprint is not based on selfish gain, but the ability to provide for his family. His goal as sole survivor in itself, demonstrates to the world his strength. Do you hear that Jazz background? Hooligan doesn’t want his family to worry about struggle. Hooligan stands now in the background of Indie Rap, but will soon enter the forefront of the Indie Rap Scene. Give him time because the world will one day envision and appreciate his dedication and ambition to strive, and struggle for his family and to ultimately live his dreams.
