The music industry, as we all know it is an ever-evolving vortex of fluctuations that have built up careers of multiple artists while leaving behind a heap of them. Clearly, making an entrance in this industry is not a big task but what plays an important role is being on the right side of it all and having the ability to stay the course and ultimately make it to the epicenter. However, even a casual examination of the current musical world reveals that there is no shortage of new talent but there are only a few who have managed to make a significant impact and are here to stay.
One such example is that of Amirali Azimzadeh, aka AmirMafia, a Persian hip hop who has notably contributed to creating a versatile music production environment and mastered rapping. He has not only become a celebrity in his own right, but also a source of inspiration for others who want to follow in his footsteps. To trace the trajectory of this rising rapper, let’s take a glance at his background that has served as a foundation of his present success.
AmirMafia comes from a musical background, which explains his natural gravitation toward the industry. His father was a well-known violinist who performed with Googoosh, an Iranian singer and actress. AmirMafia began learning to play the piano at a young age under the tutelage of Kaveh Yaghmaei but soon moved on to rock music and eventually found his calling as a rapper. Way before he divulged in the music industry, AmirMafia ventured into the world of stardom in 1997 when he got featured in an Iranian Movie called Shabe Robah.
AmirMafia began his career as a musician in 2003 and became well-known for his Persian songs. He became Iran’s one of the first Persian rappers and has gained recognition for writing and producing multiple songs for the new generation of Persian rappers receiving applause for his fresh and original ideas. He eventually collaborated with a number of French and English artists. Hasrat Hall Konim, Run Away Forever, Big Noise, and Faseleha are just a few of his well-known songs. AmirMafia’s unwavering path to popularity was aided by his distinct style, which includes multilingual lyrics, that not only distinguishes his songs but also serves as a symbol of diversity and acceptance. He intends to further amplify Persian Rap in the eyes of the globe in the near future, and he is presently working in that direction, selecting fresh and innovative projects.
AmirMafia has built a career for himself, consciously constructing each pillar in order to build a strong foundation, and it is safe to say that he is well on his way to reaching his goals and disrupting the entire industry with his work. People like him deserve a lot of credit and leeway for growing up in a time that is utterly unique and without precedent, yet still managing to make the most of it for themselves and the community.
