If revolution had a soundtrack, what would that sound be? A duo of devoted artists/activists from the West Coast may have the answer.
ROTM’s Iranian-born, California-raised frontman I.Sheik reflects the realities of revolution and exile through powerful and refined lyricism. The child of an influential activist and freedom-fighter, politics have always surrounded Sheik in his daily life.
This was part of what led Sheik to form an early emotional bond with hip hop. As a teenager, Sheik began to write rhymes and hone his freestyle skills in the schoolyard and at house parties.
