For Hakeem Paragon, getting to write and record music has been a longtime passion. Being from Milwaukee, WI, he credits the love of music, especially Hip-Hop to his mother. Some of his earliest memories are of the two going on long road trips and rapping together alongside the albums of her favorite artists, Tupac, E-40, Too $hort, and many more. Being surrounded by so much Hip-Hop it was only a matter of time before he felt the urge to rhyme himself, and at age 11 that is exactly what happened.
Fast forward a few years, and the pen has never left Hakeem Paragon's hands. At the same time several things have been picked up. A perfect example is him being a primarily self produced artist. Hakeem also take incredible pride in recording and mixing his own projects, and in doing so has become a true student of the game. Take a listen and you'll see that it has in no way interfered with his rhyming skills.
