MEET ME IN THE One small stretch of close to should be “Untouched” wilderness An attempt at what once was The only place I can walk to That preserves a fading past Here, I slow to remember While the rest forget by living fast My restful rebellion Is visiting our cradle-grave We grieve our dying dominance Afraid of what we “save” Sweet rare solitude Isn’t … Continue reading A “Protected” Past

Sharrieff Muhammad ‘21 officially started making music when he was sixteen but he has been rapping at every opportunity for as long as he can remember.
“Music was something that was always there for me, it was something that I could always fall back on when I had a bad day,” said Muhammad.
He describes his music as being influenced by hip hop, jazz, and soul music, and the creative process as a state of constant self-editing. This, he says, pushes him to constantly be better and is his favorite part of making music.
He says for this project he was particularly inspired by Amy Winehouse and Saba because of their abilities to take pain and reproduce it in a beautiful way. Some of his all-time favorite artists include Kanye West, Childish Gambino, and Jay-Z, because of their versatility within and outside of hip hop music.
Two of the songs on his album,“Used to Be,” and “Southside Soliloquies,” take some of Muhammad’s challenging times and tell stories of self-evolution.
His album, “Hubris Insecurities,” dropped today, April 26th, on Spotify, SoundCloud, Tidal, and Apple Music: it’s about the ups and downs in life, and the necessary lessons that the downs bring.
