TORONTO – Mohammad Escrow has spent the last two years crafting his latest project Escrow Season. The album has deep rooted connections to Mohammad’s inspirations, 90’s “boom bap” hip hop.
The journey of a grassroots artists can be a hard sell. “I have no financial backing on this album, I’ve financed everything out of pocket including design, packaging, and pressing,” shared Mohammad.
Mohammad has achieved distribution from Legendary Entertainment (home of artists such as Moka Only, Metty The Dert Merchant of Sweatshop Union).
“The distribution will help get this album in select stores in the U.S and overseas,” explained Mohammad, “Most people are downloading digitally, but there is a market for people who want a tangible item, there is still a small market for underground hip hop”.
Mohammad grew up in the Northwestern Ontario city of Thunder Bay. He starting out writing rhymes in high school, and eventually performing live shows in the late 90’s.
“I’ve shared stages with world class artists in all genres, eventually I’d like to headline my own small tour,” comments the artist. “I have shared stages with the likes of David Usher, Bif Naked, Dj Jazzy Jeff, Naughty By Nature, Young Buck, Classified, Joe Budden and D12 to name a few”.
Mohammad moved to Southern Ontario and has established himself in the hip hop scene for 3 years now, performing atl venues and connecting with area artists and promoters.
