Amir

The son of an Egyptian immigrant, born and raised in Rome's Torpignattara neighborhood, Amir first approaches Hip Hop culture in the early nineties.Hip Hop protects him from the struggle of street life and shows him a different way from the missteps taken by his father, who went to jail when Amir was still a child.Rap is the soundtrack of Amir's growth as an artist: thanks to his music, he finds a way to tell the world about his painful experiences.After several self-produced albums in the underground scene and various collaborations with Italy's biggest Hip Hop artists, in 2005 he begins working on his first solo album "Uomo Di Prestigio", initially scheduled to be realeased on a small independent label (Prestigio Records).
However major labels take note of Amir's work and, after a short negotiation, his album is picked up and published by EMI/Virgin in July 2006.His career takes off, making it possible to turn a simple passion into his profession: Amir becomes one of the most credible and influential Italian rappers, granting him countless appearences on TV and magazines.Amir's maturation not only as an artist but also has an individual has made him an eloquent spokesperson of the harsh reality of the streets, capable to relate to people of all ages and social backgrounds.
