I know I'm about to be possibly guilty of some semi-racist "they all look the same" ignorance but doesn't this dude look like homeboy, Waris Ahluwalia from The Darjeeling Limited movie and also a brief cameo at the end of my man Jed Weintrob's very slept-on 2005 faux-political documenary, The F-Word?
"Humble The Poet is a Toronto Based MC Who first hit the scene in 2009 with his first mixtape titled Humble The Poet Presents: -00:05. He has since built quite a following and has been featured on Allhiphop.com and World Star Hip Hop Respectively. Humble closed off 2009 with a second mixtape, -00:04 and is now gearing up to relase the third in his countdown installment on October 10th. (10/10/10).
The first original release off the mixtape will be a track titled 'Life of an Immigrant' which was produced by long time partner Sikh Knowledge. The track samples GZA's "Killah Hills 10304" and discusses the realities of immigration in North America and the sacrifices to pursue a better life.
In this Teaser Freestyle, Humble pays homage to his father, who gave up a Masters in Economics and degree in Law to come to Toronto to raise a family. All Humble The Poet tracks are available for FREE download at www.thepoetproject.com."
Moving sh-t either way. I'm from a family of immigrants so I can relate. Shout to the kid, Vishal on this one.
