Raised in the El Pueblo Housing Projects in Pittsburg, CA, from a family of esteemed criminals, Husalah was introduced to the trap at an early age. Now a legend in the Bay Area, Husalah first began rapping as a child, and caught his first break when founding father of Bay Area gangsta rap C-Bo discovered him in 1997. C-Bo went on to start the Mob Figaz, whose members included Husalah, The Jacka, AP.9, Rydah J Klyde, & FedX. Since the release of the Mob Figaz first album in 1999, he has been a part of numerous compilations, singles, and featured appearances, staying relevant on the music scene. Husalah quickly became one of Bay Area icon Mac Dre’s favorite artists, and the two recorded many songs together. After Mac Dre’s death, he was expected to become the new torchbearer for the Bay Area movement.Read more
However, before the release of his first solo album Harsh Reality (still unreleased), Husalah was a passenger in a car that was pulled over with more than 10 kilos of cocaine and became caught in a federal drug conspiracy case. After several years spent on the run, he was sentenced in 2006 and turned himself in. His first solo project Dope, Guns & Religion was released just prior to him going to jail and his second project, Huslin Since da 80’s, was released in April 2007 while he was incarcerated. Gaining his freedom in 2010, Husalah spent several years laying low, performing and releasing music sporadically. Following the death of The Jacka, though, Husalah was pressured to release more music and keep the MOB movement alive. Finally, in 2017, he’s decided it is the perfect time to pick up the torch, and set fire to the game.
