Azeem is a rapper and lyricist from Oakland, California. He's generally labeled as a 'conscious rapper', a term he doesn't necessarily feel comfortable with. He prefers to see himself as an artist or simply a 'lyricist.' Like a modern day griot, he covers topics of politics and spirituality, and is widely revered in his local community's music scene. Onstage he's a powerful force, an expert at working a crowd and a source of inspiration for his audience.

Oakland's East Bay Express declared him "Best Hip-Hop Artist of 2004."
