Charlottesville Virginia's Salloum started writing rhymes in 2007. After honing his skills for the next five years he released Epitome Perennial (2013) followed by HollowDreamz in 2014. Looking widely across various genres you’ll find a category of artists like Bob Marley, Mos Def, and Rage Against The Machine whose music hit on various levels; one, the sheer gut level – strong musicianship, attitude, and power; two, the emotional level – inspiration, justice, and empowerment; three, the intellectual level – articulate, poetic and thought-provoking lines that stick with you. Salloum’s artistic prowess belongs to this same category of artists. With his smooth delivery and unique poetry, Salloum explores universal ideas with his music.
