HumpBack Productions, also referred to as HB601, is in the midst of a national campain to get their music and video into all major markets. "Gods get up and make things happen," said the confident performer; dead men lay around and wait for things to happen to them." And you better believe that Najiah knows how to make things happen.

Rap Queen doing for self by Kim Muhammad DENVER--- Hip-Hop emcee "Najiah aims to shine a light into darkness of a genre known for bling-bling," gansta lyrics and cowcsating women as little more than sex objects. Najiah aims to bring an alternative message to the masses, with the release of her self produced album, "Puttin It Down," Nov.27. The Muslim artist is currently in the midst of her Millennium Queen CD release Tour. She began work on her musical project four years ago, on her family's HumpBack Productions (HBP) label and Hard Way," she rhymes and sings about comon relationship issues encountered in todays society. "Black Snow" is a hard-hitting anthem to the Mile High City, while the title track is by far the strongest of her collection. That That song received radio- air play in Mississippi, where she resided a few years ago. Najiah's travels have also allowed her the chance to share her artistry with the NOI when she performed during the Louis Farrakhan Prostate Cancer Foundation's gala weekend held in October. Najiah is aware that Hip-Hop attracts the ears of young people who could benifit from listening to the positive rhymes of conscious artists. Her history of living another life before awakening to Islam allows her to better understand the negative life circumstances faceing some young people. "I think everone comes on different levels and it just depends on where there trying to go with themselves," she said. "I made a big transition in my life. Now that I have taken on a Muslim role, it has become second nature." The Millennium Queen intends to maintain that spirit in all her endevors, which includes work on her second album, promoting HBP's clothing line, modeling and various acting projects. Her large and creative family continually developes business ideas in efforts to do for self. "We stay employed," she said jokingly, adding that they are currently completing a movie script which they plan to produce, direct, cast and star in. HBP has alot on it's plate, but Najiah say they are taking things one step at a time on their road to success. (HBP is based in Denver with branch locations in Mississippi, California and one coming soon to Missouri. They can be reached aat HB601@aol.com Najiah stands with NOI Supreme Capt. Mustapha Farrakhan following her performance after the Louis Farrakhan Prostate Cancer Foundation walk-a-thon Oct. 16 in Chicago,Ill. DECEMBER 14, 2004 THE FINAL CALL

NBA: All-Star Music Weekend, Although basketball was the reasonfor the celebrity influx to Denver late last month, it was hardly the main attraction. From star gazing to hustling, non-athletic types got a chance to get in on the melee, too. Not to be outdone, the NBA put it's best foot forward, offering family fair such as the Jam Sessions at the Convention Center and other star-studded events including the Slam Dunk Contest and Rookie Challenge game at the Pepsi center. Hip-Hop, the culture and the music, also took center stage. Former Mayor Wellington E. Webb went bust with his two parties at Club Bash (the first on opening night, was to feature Outkast and Fabulous the second , on closing night Sunday was hosted by Busta Rhymes] Meanwhile fashion shows hosted by Dame Dash and Roc-a-Fella Records, and another by G-Unit were rousing success stories. Starting with the Lil Jon concert at the world famous Filmore auditorium and ending with a rousing performance by the mouth of Ludacris the fourplus day celebration attempted to offer something for everyone. Colorado performers also got a chance to be highlighted. The Colorado Hip-Hop Coalition was featured at the opening day ceremonies for Micheal Jordans club Altitudes, while The Empire [featuring L.O.C. and Smooth] got the nod to open for the Book Of Hip-Hop Showcase on the Auraria campus. FOLLOWING IS A RUNDOWN OF THE DAILY MUSICAL HIGHLIGHTS. THURSDAY, FEBUARY 17, TICKETS $45 PLUS While Lil Jon's concert was high enery replets with versions of all the many hits that he's been responsible for over the last two years the King of Crunk's show was surprisingly weak. It was also devoid of the many guest stars that made those records come to life, no Ice Cube, Usher,Ying Yang Twins, Lil Scrappy, or even Pitbull, although all these entertainers were rumored to be in town. Not so.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Millennium Queen Revolutionizing the Hip-Hop Scene By Kim Muhammad Native Denverite, Najiah aims to make her mark in Hip-Hop with newly released CD "Puttin It Down," on independent label HumpBack Productions (HBP). The label is a family owned and operated. Najiah was raised listening to legends like Johnny Guitar Watson, Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan and has been involved with music all her life since her mother also sang and was a violinist. Currently, she is in the midst of her year long Millennium Queen tour to promote her album which was officially released Nov. 27. The tour will take her coast to coast with stops in cities from Los Angeles to New York. Putting her album together has been a four-year labor of love and perseverance. Her firts single received airplay in Jackson Mississippi where she resided a short time before returning to the Mile High City in 2003. "Puttin It Down," an up tempo, dance number, gained her recognition down South from local hop-hop fans and even from members of the city council. Doing things her way allows her to control her image and publicity which is important to her as a Muslim in a genre known for show-casting women as sex objects. Although she doesnot preach in her songs, she does strive to put out positive-yet-savvy messages that youth and adults can not only dance and sing to, but take to heart and act on. :[My CD] has some real life material like one song is about a man "Trying to Creep," and I him know I don't get down like that. It is a respect for marriage because a lot of songs have no respect for [it]," she said. The multi-talented rapper is also a model, actress, songwriter and producer and plans to make in those arenas as well. She recently signed on with an acting agency, is working on a few film scripts and also promotes HumpBack's HB601, clothing line. Her next single "Black Snow" is soon to be released nationwide following a two-week promotion aired on Black E n t e r t a i n m e n t Television and videos slated to run on local stations. HBP will also continue local CD distrbution through outlets like Sam Goody, Record Exchange and others. "[HBP] taking it one step at a time because [we are] a rising record label," Najiah said, adding that the family run company, in addition to their Denver home base, also has locations in Mississippi, California and one coming to Missouri.
