The official 10th member of arguably the GREATEST rap group ever assembled that consisted of hip hop heavy weights: RZA, GZA, RAEKWON, METHOD MAN, GHOSTFACE KILLA, and the Late Great OL’ DIRTY BASTARD is the badge of honor so proudly worn by a rapper who “100” percent personifies the title of “GOD MC” . . .

Amar Divine (Bio) - Amar is the type of artist that does not need a BIO, because his music speaks for it self and gives his listeners a clear picture of his life. His music is fully charged with the type of attitude that Amar says "is necessary when you in a jungle full of wild animals". This Jamaica born, Bronx NY raised, now Brooklyn resident, says that he got his style, not from any particular individual in the industry, but from the hip-hop movement as a whole. A dedicated freestyle shogun in his local areas, Amar has been spitting lyrics for over 15 years now, and his experience is evident in his flow. "The hip-hop game has become watered down because it is filled with a bunch of cats that think that by saying the same words as a Platinum selling artist they'll become platinum selling artists as well.... but that's not how it works, people recognize real", say's Amar. This view on his music has separated Amar from 90 percent of new artist that are circulating on the air waves today. He remains diligent on the choosing of his words and uses his energy to lock the crowd, so that they feel exactly what he is feeling and projecting in his rhymes. Now... Do you now what you get, when you take an artist that can compete with some of your top named rappers today, before he started writing his lyrics on paper; And put him in a studio for about 15 hours out of his day on average, with a pen, a pad, and some dope beats? Well you get the type of music that true Hip-Hop fans all over the world have been asking for.
Back in June 2014 Amar Divine teamed up with Wu-Tang Clan's Cappadonna for a project called "Hook Off", the first ever hip-hop album with no hooks. This project was a Cappadonna album that featured Amar on 11 out of 17 tracks on the album. Once the 'Hook Off' project was released, the world finally got properly acquainted with the sounds of
Amar Divine. The Cappadonna & Amar Divine collaboration was such a perfect match up, they decided to start a new entertainment company called GLF Ent LLC or "God Love Family Entertainment". This company was founded by Cappadonna and Amar Divine with a purpose of releasing music projects, movies, TV Shows, etc. As the name suggest, they always keep what's most important first in all aspects of the business, which is God, Love & Family...entertainment comes next!!
Based on the feedback from the first project "Hook Off" there is talks about a "Hook Off 2" in the near future.
Amar's passion for good hip-hop extends beyond is career as an Emcee. Amar has also helped to launch and is the Executive Officer Of Operations for Wu World Radio, Wu-Tang Management's official hip-hop radio station that is dedicated to bringing the essence of hip-hop back to its former greatness.
Expect to hear allot of good thing in the months to come from Amar Divine, he's been working hard and now he's ready to show the world the fruits of his labor.
