From the underground clubs within Birmingham, Alabama, artists Shaheed & DJ Supreme are combining classic elements of original hip-hop beats with lyrics of the future. These in-your-face-musicians can be seen performing with artists such as Akil, the MC of Jurassic 5, and with a highly anticipated upcoming album that can be expected to be delivered in early 2013, there is nothing that can stop Shaheed and his influential confidant, DJ Supreme. The entire staff of HIP Video Promo are pleased to introduce the stylish and all-around fluidity of their music video “Right Now.”
Communicating Vessels recording artists Shaheed & DJ Supreme are on a constant rise to stardom within the contemporary music scene. Known as one of hip-hop’s most consistent groups, Shaheed and DJ Supreme don’t exactly fit the mold of most typical dirty-southern rap artists—they are what we would call practitioners of traditional and classic hip-hop elements. With the release of two critically acclaimed Lps, Health Wealth & Knowledge of Self and Scholar Warrior (a remix album), Shaheed’s sharp lyrical dexterity is showcased as DJ Supreme’s soul-infused production looms in the background. The albums also include guest appearances from artists such as Akil of Jurassic 5, Amir Sulaiman, and W. Ellington Felton.
As a group, Shaheed & DJ Supreme have shared the stage with many artists on the hip-hop scene including Raekwon, DJ Shiftee, The Bodega Brovas and Stalley, as well as label mates, The Green Seed. The much anticipated third LPKnowledge, Rhythm, and Understanding is set to be released early next year on Communicating Vessels. In the meantime, Shaheed & DJ Supreme are lighting up the streets of Birmingham, making appearances throughout local hip-hop clubs. Their newest release “Right Now” foreshadows what’s to come on the album Knowledge, Rhythm, and Understanding, and the clip promotes the inspirational sounds of all that Shaheed & DJ Supreme encompass.
Set in the now famous The Bottletree in Alabama, an astounding club where artists collide, “Right Now” constitutes the ever-prominent necessity of Shaheed & DJ Supreme’s music. The lights of the underground club make for a sultry evening with these two budding musicians, and the lyrics of Shaheed are completely innovative and contemporary.

There are soulful qualities of the catchy beats that they create, creating a whole new world of music that is infused with elements of the past, future, and present for fans of any genre.
“Right Now” is a contemporary clip that captures what is to come of hip-hop music.
