Lyrical Militant is a conscious Hip-Hop artist spitting intelligent lyricism caught up in mainstream ignorance. Residing in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the Canadian-born Pakistani-Muslim emcee philosophizes in rhyme with slap-you-in-the-face lyricism over infectious heavy drums and soulful, South-Asian influenced melodies. Named Uptown Magazine’s “One to Watch” twice within the same year, Militant’s rapid-fire flow can be…

“What’s the point of rhyming if you ain’t philosophizing?” muses Lyrical Militant on “Humanity’s Tragedy.” …this album is strongly anchored in a socially-conscious perspective…. Lyrical Militant’s strengths lie in his flow, his ability to incorporate South-Asian influences into his tracks and his occasional cheekiness.

With a strong lyrical flow and boss beats throughout, Download this Mixtape is always entertaining, but especially so when Lyrical Militant raps in an über-smooth style. On Been So Long, which features soul singer Flo, Militant is crazy cool, his suave tone sounding a bit like Q-Tip in A Tribe Called Quest’s classic, Bonita Applebum.
