As the lead single to his upcoming solo debut (The Recipe), Amiri drops “Boom Bap” as a digital 12″ single on HiPNOTT Records. The Almost Famous producer steps out from behind the boards to refute those who doubted his mic skills and tell us who Amiri is, while mentioning the situation with A Tribe Called Quest and that him and Spectac are still cool… he just had to ride solo on this one.

About The Album:
Following up the release of this year’s album Almost Famous with partner in rhyme Spectac, Amiri comes out from behind the boards to release his first solo effort The Recipe. Comprised of 16 tracks featuring Amiri’s signature boom bap soulful sound, The Recipe is 100% Amiri on production and on the mic. Songs like “Music”, “Boom Bap” and “Like They Used Ta!” will have Hip Hop fans wishing it were 1994 again. With influences such as DJ Premier, Pete Rock, DITC, Marley Marl and Large Professor, Amiri has got The Recipe to give hip hop fans what they’re craving.
“I’m here to bring the feel good back to Hip Hop.” – Amiri
Not that it’s missing, but Amiri wants appreciation when it comes to skills in the art of Hip Hop. Born and raised in South Carolina, Amiri was introduced to Hip Hop during his childhood through the sounds of Hip Hop pioneers like T La Rock, Kurtis Blow, and Run DMC. “Growing up, anything with rap music involved, I wanted to be a part of it”. Crafting his skills as an MC was how it began, but Amiri realized behind the boards was his true gift.
For those that think Amiri is new to the game are wrong. In 1996 Amiri produced the remix to Mista’s top ten single “Blackberry Molasses”. Since then, Amiri has sharpened his skills and worked with many underground emcees such as Spectac, Blame One, Rubix from Mass Influence, Makeba Mooncycle and last but not least, A Tribe Called Quest on their reunion single “I C U (Doin It)” featuring Erykah Badu.
