Story/Video posted March 18, 2020 in Arts & Entertainment by Lillian Swartzell.


Ibraheem Faiaz is a senior at Penn State studying Health Policy and Administration, but he also writes and produces music.

Faiaz got his love for hip hop from growing up in Brooklyn and integrates his Pakistani heritage into his rap style. He writes his raps in English and gets help from his Mom to add lyrics in Urdu as well.

Although he thrives in the hip hop world, his involvement with music is multidimensional. Faiaz performed in the Broadway production of "Beauty and the Beast" when he was in middle school in New York City. Being cast in this production made him feel comfortable performing on stage, which translates into his performances as a rapper.
