Anees is a rapper, singer/songwriter who has taken social media by storm with his witty lines, “swaggy” fast-paced flow, and thought provoking lyrics. His confident demeanor seeps through the music he makes with the help of his online community -who he gives exclusive access to when putting together his very personal songs. Anees’ latest single “Slip,” written in honor of his wife, is currently available everywhere and is a feel-good love song that tugs on the heart strings but makes you bop your head to the beat (without being too sappy). The swag, the style, the sound -sign me up for all of it.
I had a chance to catch up with Anees to talk about his leap of faith, his surprise encounter with Justin Bieber, and what we can expect next from the Palestinian artist who is driven by his faith in God and self!
