Columbus, Ohio – Electro Hip Hop legend Jerry Calliste Jr. p.k.a. Hashim celebrated a 30 year anniversary on November 10, 2013 of the continued success of his 1983, Cutting Records, EDM and Hip Hop music classic “Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)” or as some refer to the song “It’s Time”. Hashim sold over 2.5 million units, appears on 150+ “definitive”, “best of”, “classic” Electro or Hip Hop music compilations, on at least 6 major and 3 independents labels and 4 popular video games.

Along with success and celebration comes negativity. “People can disagree and share their opinion but to outright lie, or twist and make up untruths and have it posted publicly to try and ruin my career or negatively affect my career will not be tolerated” said Calliste Jr.

Physical threats, negative statements and outright lies were made in the name of a rapper representative of an American based Hip Hop group on a Germany based Electro music web site, while being interviewed about his career and not Hashim’s. “At this time, I choose not to name and identify the rapper, the name of the artist’s group and the Germany based Electro music web site until my team and I decide my direction in the matter” said Calliste Jr. … READ MORE > http://theofficialhashim.com/site/2014/04/hashim-considers-filing-libel-suit-against-american-rapper-and-a-germany-based-electro-music-web-site-may-seek-millions-in-damages/
