Watch the video here: https://www.facebook.com/issamusik/videos/vb.22051536984/10153247385051985/?type=2&theater I$$A grew up in Dakar - the nation's capital which is also unique for being the westernmost point in all of Africa. His parents encouraged I$$A and his five brothers and sisters to excel in school, steering them into practical, high earning vocations like computer science and engineering. All of the kids followed the plan, except I$$A. "My music is a reflection of every musical style I was exposed to while growing up, which makes it very unique. In fact, I grew up speaking french, listening to american and European hip, R&B and other island styles of music. My vision is to become a musical bridge between continents as I recognize that the world is becoming smaller and connect more people like me who have been exposed to different cultures." I$$A is currently working on his album "Wake Up The Beast" which will be available for purchase on the day of the concert.Tickets Save

“I$$A was born in Senegal West Africa. He dreamed that one day he would come to America and become a Big Huge Star. His dream came true in 2004 when he won a contest that gave him the opportunity to come to America and pursue his passion for music. He analyzed his tracks on hitlab.com and now he's on my rdio show. How big is that!? So watch out for my boy ISSA from Senegal, Aight! Let's get it!”
