Meet Ahmad Alghali.
Ahmad Alghali is a 21-year-old artist/trendsetter. He is Sierra Leonian, but he was born and raised in PG County-Maryland. Ahmad has been making music for about two years now. He was prompted to make music by his younger brother. Ahmad had no plans on making music at first, he only planned on producing his brother’s music. Eventually, his brother pushed him to make music of his own, perpetuating his music creation. His music has grown to the point where he no longer fits into one genre of music, he has his own. Ahmad also draws, paints, and dabbles in video editing. He’s created and edited videos for himself as well as others. Ahmad has come up with the creative stage name known as $hifiano, which he also says that the name stems off from a Chief Keef song. Ahmad and his friends have created a very ambitious group by the name of “Pocket Rocket,” incorporating all aspects of musical engineering. They’ve created songs of their own and produced some for others. Ahmad plans on taking the music industry by storm, and will not stop until he does so.

What inspires you to write your music?
“I’m easily inspired by artists I listen to, especially new underground artists. I also get inspired by the people around me, especially my friends and family, if it weren’t for them. I wouldn’t know where’d i would be right now.”
Who is the biggest rap influence to the music you write?
“I am most influenced by UnoTheActivist and Lil Wayne.”
What makes you different from all the other rappers getting into the rap scene?
“I personally feel like my sound is different. Especially around where I’m from, my music sounds like no other in my opinion. I often come out of my comfort zone to try new things, which i think most artists don’t do.”
