New Jersey MC, activist, philanthropist, fitness studio owner and adult entertainer Hasan Salaam presents the Alex Ghassan-directed music video for “Mile High Club”, produced by Smoke DZA/Fashawn producer Remot. Available in both censored and uncensored versions, the video shines a light into Hasan’s “double life” of music and porn. Along with his business partner Jet Setting Jasmine, Hasan – better known in the porn industry as King Noire – travels the country staging fantasy flight parties, sex education workshops and fetish training. A female friend in the porn business persuaded an 18-year-old Hasan to do his first porn movie because she “didn’t want any random d* in [her] face. I made $500 for two hours of ‘work’.” Hasan later partnered with Jet Setting Jasmine to open their company, Jet Setting Jasmine/Royal Fetish Films, which Hasan says was “created to cater to women, and promotes that women should be able to enjoy their sexuality and adult entertainment just as much as any man. No one should not be shamed, or ashamed, because of their inherit instinct for intimacy and sexual satisfaction.” Hasan speaks at shelters to abused women, helping them reintroduce sensuality back in their lives with the purpose of ” assisting them to reclaim what someone looked to steal from them.” His activism work is also well documented. Hasan has toured Palestine, holding hiphop workshops with local youth. All profits from his 2012 EP Music Is My Weapon (listen) were used towards his “It Takes A Village” project which funded a school, clean water well, and medical clinic in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa. A community organizer, he works with troubled youth, and helps run a monthly food and clothing drive in Jersey City, N.J. Hasan has taught “The Socio-Political Importance of Black Music in American Society”, a self-created lecture, at universities across the country. “Mile High Club” is the newest visual from Life In Black & White, Hasan’s Viper Records full-length out now on Immortal Technique’s Viper imprint.
