Hip Hop’s international hidden gem.
L’omari is a multitalented artist, songwriter, and influencer rising out of Miami but raised between Doha, Qatar and Toronto, Canada. This lyrical socialite has been honing his musical talents for over ten years and counting. L’omari remembers a time when his older brother would fill the house with the sounds of Snoop Dogg, Tupac, and Common which ignited the passion he has for the art of rap he instills into his craft today.
Being raised between Qatar and Canada, L’omari learned English and by the tender age of 13 he began writing lyrics which quickly turned into poetry. By the time he entered high school, L’omari had developed the natural talent for putting on a performance with rapping and had learned how to play both the guitar and the piano. It was in that moment that the multitalented Qatari influencer knew what he wanted to do with the rest of his life.
L’omari is constantly inspired by the hip-hop lyrical heavyweights that came before him from the legendary bangers he heard on his brother’s playlist to the unforgettable rhymes that were spit from his favorite MC’s like Nas and Wu-Tang Clan decades ago. With that being said though, L’Omari still takes his own style and flows into the booth when laying down his own records when he hits the studio.
L’omari is setting the bar
L’omari made his mark on the music industry in 2018 with his hit single “Glorious,” as a debut on the one year anniversary of a diplomatic crisis that occurred in Qatar, following previous releases such as “Pablo Escobar” and Wonder Why.” As an influencer, he released the record to uplift his people and his country rather than let the siege bring his people down.
When asked about his writing process, L’omari states:“I make music based on the real-life situations and experiences that I go through.”
“The song ‘Glorious’ was more of a patriotic song for my people from Qatar…” “Our king Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani he was known as the glorious. His nickname was ‘glorious.’ So I translated it into English and did a song about it just to do something for my country and people. No one has done that before. During the songwriting process, I made sure to touch a few words to represent us and what we stand for. That generated traction amongst my people. It got people getting emotional when they heard the song.” L’omari said about the song nearly a year later.
Since the release of “Glorious,” L’omari has used his influence and beliefs to continue to move the culture forward and break grounds with his music. L’omari will continue to use his craft of music as a powerful tool, his voice for change, and for the people. As a well rounded artist and influencer, who’s also CEO of BidWin Music Group, LLC and Board Member of the Qatar Music Foundation, L’omari utilizes his talent and passion for music to spread positivity throughout the world with his unique and stylish brand of socially and internationally conscious hip-hop.
Recently the rapper-songwriter has been in the studio non stop cooking up more new music, and plans to drop a series of music back to back soon so stay tuned! The first single set to drop is titled, “BidWin.” The word “Bedouin” means an original Arab from the desert, however he switched up the spelling because all he does is “bid” and “win,” especially in his new stomping grounds of Miami, Florida.
Staying true to his roots, faith and artistry is what sets L’omari apart. His authenticity accompanied with his talent and work ethic is what has this Hip-Hop star quickly reaching new heights. “BidWin” is set to take over the summer of 2019 as he marries traditional Arabic sounds with contemporary trap triplets then following up with an EP later in the year. Keep an eye out. You will be hearing and seeing a lot more of L’omari as he is quickly rises to stardom with his uplifting and impactful music.
