Originally from Morocco, Shams immigrated to France at a young age. Immersed in the breakdance and hip hop scene, cutting his teeth on the mic of the various fashionable clubs of 1980's Paris. Quickly earning acclaim from performing at freestyle events and touring his underground hit song "Hedi Bled Noum", Shams landed a major label record deal. However, what would've been his debut full-length was squashed due to the Gulf War causing the label to rethink what they wanted to represent. Feeling sour about the music business, Shams shelved most of these songs until this release. Presented is a collection of early demos, "Hedi Bled Noum", and songs from that 'lost' full-length.
