Shaheed & DJ Supreme – ‘Appreciate Life’

Shaheed and DJ Supreme make music that’s as kinetic and intoxicating as anybody’s, and they always bring the verses, quite rightfully taking their place among the legends. On their new single, ‘Appreciate Life’, they’re joined by another legend, Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli founding member Chali 2na, whose relaxed baritone is the perfect counterpoint to the frenetic delivery of Shaheed and DJ Supreme.

Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, the pair have made themselves cornerstones in the local scene, with Shaheed penning the lyrics and hooks, and Supreme supplying the beats. They’ve supported Jurassic 5 on multiple tours, and their music has impacted thousands. Tracks such as ‘Appreciate Life’ are bound to impress many many more.

The video for ‘Appreciate Life’, shot by Jordan Sullivan, sees all three artists make the most of their screen time, their very real chemistry evident in not just the song but the delightful clip as well. They all radiate respect for each other, and their pure love for hip hop is evident in every line.
