I create Hip Hop music projects via my authentic experiences. Life philosophy is also added to wholesomely portray the experience in a more complete way. I create a website for each music project. I write an informative essay and also incorporate knowledge from other sources - such as passages and quotations, found in the middle and end of each website's homepage. I obtain a leasing contract to use the music; I write the lyrics; I record the lyrics; I write the essay; I configure the website; I own the website domains; I compose, edit, & incorporate the additional knowledge.

HollowDreamz is a concept album that sets out Salloum's belief in challenging social constructs and the importance of the individual. From this you can already tell that Salloum is a more intellectual and deep thinking artist than most rappers. His rapping style is fast and flowing with a great capacity for rhyme and wordplay.  ― TheFaulknerReview.wordpress.com

This is the real deal. Charlottesville's own Salloum has a lyrical depth all his own that few mainstreamers can touch. Salloum is for lovers of Hip-Hop who expect and require a positive voice, someone who represents the consciousness of the people. Besides shattering the limits and expanding the possibilities of current hip-hop trends as a conscious and cultural force, “HollowDreamz” shines for its blend of diverse samples, infectious beats, and intelligent lyrics. Moreover it’s Salloum’s fiercely intelligent vision and his compelling delivery that makes the album totally worthwhile.   ― JamSphere.com
