Great athletes oftentimes have their actions described as poetry in motion. A fitting description for emcee Amir Sulaiman’s work might be poetry in rhythm as he’s been creating his own unique brand of Hip-Hop since 1996. He debuted with the a capella album Cornerstore Folklore in 2001, following it up with Dead Man Walking, Broad Daylight and the just released Like A Thief In The Night. He’s appeared on Def Poetry Jam twice, once in 2004 and again in 2005, and was on the Breed Love Odyssey Tour last year with Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch and K-Naan. This week I caught up with Amir to talk about the development of his style, how his Muslim faith plays a role in his work, and what type of rappers he feels are a waste of time.
