A Poetic Filament: An Interview with Writer and Musician Azeem

What you hear in Azeem's music is bluster and anger, a rage of words and sound. But at the very core of his sonic tirade is the enveloping silence of anagogic contemplation.

Azeem: Air Cartoons

Azeem: Craft Classic

Wonderful lyricism from the underexposed hip-hop scene... Sound sadly familiar?

Azeem: Show Business
