About Hazakim

Hazakim is Hebrew for "strong ones". They are a messianic Jewish hip-hop group based in Florida.


All of creation groans with achin’ bones,
we wait and long for the day that His face is shown.


Mike & Tony


As a kid Mike never imagined himself becoming an emcee; being more drawn to classic jazz artists such as Miles Davis, Coltrane, Ellington, and Vince Guaraldi. Hearing the Cross Movement’s debut album, Heaven’s Mentality, changed all that. He wrote his first rhyme after hearing an agnostic rapper challenging the validity of Scripture—that rhyme became Liar Lunatic Lord or Legend—Hazakim’s first song…he hasn’t stopped since.


Falling in love with socially conscious east coast rap as a kid, Tony began writing rhymes of his own at the young age of 10. In addition to writing lyrics, Tony also found a voice in producing and arranging music for the group (with Mike also contributing from time to time). Incorporating the sounds of his upbringing, and the many cultural influences that make Hazakim who they are, Tony has helped to forge a unique musical backdrop for the duo’s lyrics.

 Shout out to @reformed_jay for this one. I may disagree with Kent Hovind on some minutiae, but his young earth and debate game are top tier. So glad our brother, former political and religous prisoner, Kent Hovind is back. Lets go!!!
 Those scenes that require you to wait a moment before speaking so that she won't notice a crackle in your voice. Yep....those ones. Of course there are others but space is limited. Watch them alone my brothers.  John chapter 2 tells us that the context of Jesus 'cleansing the temple' was that it occured during the days leading up to Passover. More than a random act of righteous anger, the Messiah was exemplifying the Biblical command given in Exodus to cleanse the house of leaven so that none is found in your dwelling during the Feast of Passover. We know from Scripture that leaven represents sin. The Lord was, in fact, purging His Father's house of sin in time for Passover - showing us the greater reality that the command to"Spring Clean" was pointing to. And so let us purge the temple of our hearts this Passover season, and everyday - overturning the tables of sin in honor of Messiah our Passover Lamb. So be it.
 Be different for righteousness' sake.  Everyone is asking me what I think of Kendrick's latest album....well here it is.
