“I’d rather you hate me for who I am, than love me for who I ain’t”

Black and White photography brings the grey area of life to the forefront, and that’s what this Hasan Salaam’s “Life in Black and White” is.

This album is Hasan Salaam’s life set to music. From the racism he experienced within part of his family to the soul food that kept the rest together. From nights where his involvement in pornography put food on his table and a roof over his head to seeing The Most High in what some would consider the lowest places.

The album is autobiographical from start to finish.

“I’m far from a perfect man but that’s not the point, this is soul music.”
