They say true love is a beautiful thing. True love that results in
hip-hop is a beautiful thing with a great soundtrack. The Reminders
have been making music for a while now, both individually and
together. In 2005, Big Samir began performing with Aja Black around
the midwest, sharing similar views on life, music and religion, they
decided to come together and work on a concept entitled The ReMINDers.
The sound is best described as "soulful" awareness and positivity
influence their lyrics, with a focus on harmonizing and bringing a
message. After a two year break to raise their children, they are back
with a powerful debut record "ReCollect" that will gain them a solid
position in the music world.
Aja Black, born in Hollis Queens (New York), 26, sings and raps on the
record while Big Samir, born in Brussels (Belgium), 28, occasionally
flips back and forth from French to English with a dope bilingual
flow. The Couple-Duo is very busy promoting positive vibes and great
music for people of all ages in the world to enjoy.
For the past couple of years, they have acquired much success by
sharing stages with such artists as Fishbone, DeLaSoul, KRS 1, Dead
Prez, Immortal Technique, Little Brother, Pharcyde, Talib Kweli, Mos
Def, K'naan and have also hit the road with Blackalicious and OneBeLo.
