My name is Hakeem Prime with PrimeSquad (Band), Singer/Hiphop Artist from Los Angeles, CA We generate a very different sound and lyrics that are not typical in the hiphop community, we base our music off actual feelings, situations and real life harmonies, our sound can apply to every age bracket, we have a very upbeat stage presence along with a positive vibe and we always bring a crowd! Take a chance with us, you won't be disappointed. thank you!
As someone that has been booking music for 20 years, it is a rare occasion when I come across a musician that can deliver an awesome performance, write music AND handle the business needs in such a professional manner. He is amazing and engaging on stage and reliable, accommodating and such a pleasure to work with offstage. Hakeem cares about his career and his "customers" and it shows. I always get great feedback when he plays and calls asking when he will play again. Thanks Hakeem!
Price Range: $500 ‐ $2000
What to Expect
In my 8 years of performance experience, I've played every kind of event and can confidently adapt to best suit the needs of the particular client, event and/or venue. Although I can certainly perform a vast variety of covers and originals as ambient background music, my preference is to host an intimate "storyteller" type of private concert, complete with my original songs, stories about how they came to be and a few choice cover songs (for audience familiarity) peppered throughout. I have a unique, rustic voice that can instantly grab an audience and quality songs and seasoned stage presence to keep them ever engaged.
Hakeem Prime (also known as HyphyDaSpider) began his career with his 2016 single, Slip Up. With the success of this single (that has so far amounted almost 2,000,000 views on YouTube alone, he took that same energy to the stage, opening for the likes of T.I., E-40, Russ & XXXTENTACION. Hakeem Has played at a host at a few highly regarded venues, such as; The Room Concert House/ Knitting Factory/ The Revolution Concert House And Event Center/House of blues(LA) /Rio Club (GA)/ to name a few In exploration of his creativity Hakeem began to work on his new EP entitled “Signs”, planned to release in 2018.
Additional Booking Notes
I can provide my own PA if necessary. However, if provided by the client, I require a 8x8 space (minimum), 1 vocal mic with boom stand, 1 acoustic DI box, 1-2 floor monitors and ample lighting. Nothing extravagant.
