About hajmusic
Biography:
The Charlotte North Carolina emcee has been a card carrying member of the hip-hop culture since 1995.
haj is, Anthony J Hamilton, a true Hip Hop recording artist hailing from Charlotte NC. The name "haj" comes from the Muslim word "hajj" or "haj" which means- "on a journey or pilgrimage to reach the Mecca". Upon reading a book about Malcolm X but not the autobiography, the book discussed the pilgrimage or “hajj” Malcolm X made on his trip to Mecca. haj found this reading very interesting and decided that his alter ego’s name would become haj, simply by using the letters from his first middle and last name but also to the artist, haj means, Hip Hop and Jazz. Though haj is not of the Muslim religion, haj is, in a sense his name as he has always been on his own journey........ through his music. haj has been writing lyrics since 1992 and his first recording project began in 1993 and in the midst of recording he was introduced to the jazz/avant-garde vibe. The project that followed was called "Daily Meditations"; this was an experimental project for him because he wasn't into jazz music at the beginning of his career. “Daily Meditations” was a mostly live project that was dubbed "improvisation over lyrics" because the only things that were written were the lyrics. The project which includes the title song, "Daily Meditations", "dedication: Peaches and Cream", "Haze", "Causin Mass Hysteria" and "Wayz of the Dayz", to name a few and in some respects are musical masterpieces. Today he still proudly holds up that card, worn edges and all! He released his sophomore album "Outside Myself" along with his producers Ry-Star(Hand Me Down Soundz) & Scott Slagle(Asylum Digital Studio). Together they set forth to create a perfect blend of hip-hop and jazz. With Ry & Scott creating the compostion, haj penned rhymes about the real life of a 9-5 adult. Songs like "Fast Food" "Options" and "Situations" received Glowing reviews in Performer Magazine and Creative Loafing this past summer
