Al Mahdi is a music recording artist from the United States. The hip hop performer and songwriter from California has been releasing music since 2020 with his single titled "555". Al Mahdi premiered the music video for his song "1-4" which was released on August 8, 2022 as part of "General Orders", a 3 track single.
1-4 is a song meant show the listener the first four general orders of Islam and how they connect to Al Mahdi. This helps give the listener more insight to who he is and what his beliefs are. Al Mahdi uses his words to show the listener the world through his eyes and the code that he follows. He speaks to the code, first giving background, then speaks to the importance of it, then speaks to how it relates to him and his life.
The music video, shot by AdamKG, premiered on September 15, 2022. It is a humble look into Al Mahdi's world as you get to see a glimpse of his surroundings. The video showcases his neighborhood and what can be assumed to be a minimart that he is a frequent patron to. He also is seen sitting on a car with presumably his son passing down the wisdom of the general orders in which this song is about.
This one's for the real steppers
The drillers, that know the lessons
I gotta thank Allah for all my blessings
I gotta show my son his mind's his strongest weapon
