Jamal Rahman of True Brew Records talks to Ahmad Uzair about his musical beginning, establishing True Brew Records, and his future plans. Here is what he has to say about all of this.
Q) Hey Jamal, tell us a bit about your musical background and how did you get into this profession?

I owe the beginning of my relationship with music to my parents. When I was 6 or 7, they bought a Bose sound system to complement their already huge cassette tape collection. There was always a diverse span of music playing in the house, and that laid the foundation for what would become my own production aesthetic. Later, as an early teen, my brother introduced and taught me the guitar and I started recording and performing a year after. Never looked back since!
