My name is Tahir (dead prez producer). I have a music series called "The BlakkBerry Filez". I have released 5 volumes from this series in 2009 and scheduling volume 6 release for the new year. The vibe is revolutionary and responsible hip hop. If possible, I would like my work to be reviewed on your site. For my songs, videos, and more info go to If you need anything sent to you (songs, pics, bio, etc.) just let me know. Thanks for your consideration, time, and (hopefully) response.

Peace! - Tahir
