Everyone has an opinion about music (and you know what they say opinions are like) but delivering a soundtrack on budget and on time in a way that not only satisfies the creative demands of the project but also the legal delivery requirements of your distributor (making sure you get paid and not sued) is a skill born of experience and real, actionable industry knowledge –not just making sweet-ass mixtapes.
The bottom line is: Hassan Shareef can get the job done, no foolin’!
