Lhagic Promotional Poster

International raptivist Lhagic,Shu Akhenaten, was born Christopher Jamel Gaines on December 11, 1983 and became influenced by Hip Hop culture in 1995. His influences include Nas, Big L, Jay Z, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, and Notorious B.I.G. Inspired by Tupac Shakur’s “Thug Life Movement” he planted the seed that came into fruition in 2009 with the release of “Incredible Lhag,” Lhagic’s very first independent release via FamElite Asafo. Since 2008 Lhagic and FamElite Asafo have released 5 independent albums: “Incredible Lhag” (2009), “Legendary Lhag” (2010), “I am the Throne” (2011), “Zulu Blood” (2012), and “Triple L’s (2014).”

Officially founded by Lhagic in 2008 upon being released from a 6 year prison bid for arson, FamElite Asafo would become the catalyst to a platform that would showcase Lhagic’s creativity and ideals for years to come. FamElite Asafo is a culturally uplifting movement based on Afrikan values that motivates a mission to reclaim control over our own media outputs as an entertainment company. It is a movement formed to musically uplift and inspire the people most affected by oppression throughout the world. With a well-rounded message, both personal and political, Lhagic proves to be the nostalgic wit Hip Hop has been missing since the death of what some say is only in a comatose state.

Since 2008 Lhagic has had many featured performances across the states including The House of Blues (Cleveland), The New Hazlett Theater (Pittsburgh), The Black National Theatre (Harlem), The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (Atlanta), and The August Wilson Center for African American Culture (Pittsburgh). He’s also has appearances in the major and independent films “Concussion” (starring Will Smith), “The Last Witch Hunter” (starring Vin Diesel), and “Kuwsh.” Movie soundtracks and music placement in motion pictures include “Neighbor of the Beast” (The 48 Hour Film Festival), “Kuwsh” (Deniran Films), and “Reserve Notes” (Deniran Films). Lhagic has worked with Method Man, Styles P, Roxanne Shante, Freeway, Professor Griff, Insane Clown Posse, Da Band, Dj Fahrenheit, as well as many others throughout the music industry.
