Gibril aka the Foreign Exchange Hustler is a multi talented artist. With an eclectic fusion of hip hop, rap, and reggae with hypnotic lyrics in French, Pijjin, Patois, Ga, Yoruba and Twi on powerful beats, Gibril spreads his message of African awareness and the need for African solidarity. He is always promoting the improvement and quality of African hip hop and life standards for Africans in general. Born in Western Africa to a Ghanaian mother and a Sierra Leonean father, Gibril made entrance into the world at a time of conflict in Ghana. Confronted by civil wars in Togo and Nigeria he and his family moved back and forth along the coast until he ended up in Ghana again where he finished his secondary school.
In 2001 Gibril moved to the US where he has been sharing his messages about African awareness, the need for African solidarity and his experiences surviving from civil war. Gibril has collaborated and shared stages with M1 (Dead Prez), Meta and the Cornerstones, Wanlov and Rasta Bubu. He has worked with producers QC Fund aka The Streets Number One Producer, Eric Matlock aka Coptic, DJ Child, K Jones and Divided Souls to name a few. His ultimate dream is to see the African continent united and Africans standing as one people. According to him, music is a useful tool to reach that goal.
