Mini Documentary – Al-Fatir

Musician and owner of Hat City Records on Main Street in downtown Danbury, Connecticut, Al-Fatir resides with his producer and partners to cultivate music that ties contemporary rap with sounds reminiscent of past generations. I took a tour of their studio and sat down with Al-Fatir to talk about his life, his music, and his goals for the future.
