Hip Hop Artist or Rapper. In fact to just call him either, might be as erroneous as a slew of other titles that we generally use to categorize the arts. The best title might simply be: STUDENT (although we regret to burst your bubble and must mention he also holds the position of teacher and motivational speaker). He is a student of life and his unique story is a far cry from the saran wrap packages that most of our “stars” come in.

Forget the fact that a revolution in his home country and multiple transitory stops in other countries somehow landed him here in Orange County, CA. Forget the fact that he speaks at least 4 languages and learned English from the New York/Middle Eastern twanged accents of his father and mother. Even forget about the fact that often more pressing than posting his latest song, booking a show, or hitting the studio, is spending time with his family, loyalty to his dearest friends, and having a cup of tea with his grandma.

Poet is one of those humble and exciting finds that make you want to cross paths with his genius before the rest of the world discovers it. His star has been on the rise for years, and as long as the laws of physicsapply, and the earth is round; It is not “if it will happen” for POET, but “when it will happen”.

If you want to know more, and we can assure you there is more, you might just have to do some digging on your own. What we can tell you, is all the above mentioned projects are on I-tunes, and you can check him out online at all the local hubs: Facebook, myspace, twitter, youtube… Simply take four words: A + Poet + Nomad + Ali and put them together into one: Apoetnomadali.
