Husalah is a deserved cult hero in Northern California. A member of the legendary Mob Figaz, Husalah was deemed to be next torchbearer for the Bay Area movement following the death of his friend and comrade, Mac Dre, but instead spent the following years embroiled in a federal drug conspiracy case, being on the run, and eventually, prison. All too familiar with the challenges and breaks life throws at you, Husalah runs through difficult realities in “Protect Your Soul,” his latest single. A fiery, apocalyptic mob anthem with a foreboding chorus, “Protect Your Soul” finds Husalah reflecting on how he struggles to survive with a hypnotic, unbreakable cadence. “Protect Your Soul” is a cautionary tale, but Husalah balances the scales with his powerful verses: “So make way as I unload the AK on your face/And 10,000 under the hood for a high speed chase.” Premiered by The FADER, “Protect Your Soul” is the latest single from Husalah’s upcoming project, which is slated to release soon.
“My mom, who had me as a teen, used to rap – she’s the one who started me rapping. She was a big fan of Sade and I’ve always loved everything about Sade too, including the things she stands for; her music is refined, she’s elegant and pure. But she had a dark side with the heroin addiction. This is my version of her “Bulletproof Soul” soul song. Even though I’m a gangsta, I just love Sade. I’m an iron fist with a velvet glove.”
