Shahzad proudly presents his “International” single in which he rhymes in not one, but four different languages –
Using his ability to speak four languages— English, French, Chinese, and Farsi— Shahzad demonstrates his capacities as an artist and how he is able to connect with listeners around the world. Offstage, Shahzad is Amin Adibnazari. Onstage, he is a poet, a storyteller, and an artist. He developed a love for poetry at a young age when a professor of English literature personally trained him in the composition and analysis of classic masterpieces.
The knowledge he gained from his studies enabled him to identify the parallel between poetry and rap music. And it was upon that discovery that his appreciation for the genre had sparked and he began studying the works of great rap poets. Drawing on influences like Lupe Fiasco, Black Thought, and Mos Def, Shahzad began working on his own craft. Over the years, he has refined it into what it is today.
