About Hazakim

Hazakim is Hebrew for "strong ones". They are a messianic Jewish hip-hop group based in Florida.



David’s descendant who’s mistaken as timid, makes His enemies a footstool while He cradles an infant.


Mike & Tony



As a kid Mike never imagined himself becoming an emcee; being more drawn to classic jazz artists such as Miles Davis, Coltrane, Ellington, and Vince Guaraldi. Hearing the Cross Movement’s debut album, Heaven’s Mentality, changed all that. He wrote his first rhyme after hearing an agnostic rapper challenging the validity of Scripture—that rhyme became Liar Lunatic Lord or Legend—Hazakim’s first song…he hasn’t stopped since.



Falling in love with socially conscious east coast rap as a kid, Tony began writing rhymes of his own at the young age of 10. In addition to writing lyrics, Tony also found a voice in producing and arranging music for the group (with Mike also contributing from time to time). Incorporating the sounds of his upbringing, and the many cultural influences that make Hazakim who they are, Tony has helped to forge a unique musical backdrop for the duo’s lyrics.

 Praise God for His sovereignty and provision. What the enemy meant for evil, God used for good. He is still a God of miracles!!!  Nope...didn't forget. Happy Hanukkah, day 4.
 Day 7....it would've been enough if the oil lasted for 7 days - The number of completion & the number of days in a week. But the oil lasted for 8 days - The number of new beginnings. With re-dedication the Lord promises to bring newness of life. Let us look to the Light of the World this Hanukkah, and find a new beginning in Messiah our King!  The third day of Hanukkah is upon us! May grace and peace be yours this Holiday season.
 Shabbat Shalom and Happy Hanukkah! Exciting thing are on the horizon!  Happy day 2 of Hanukkah from Hazakim.
 Happy Hanukkah from Hazakim. Just as the Temple was re-dedicated to the Lord at Hanukkah, may the Temples of our own bodies be re-dedicated to our Lord and King. If you have defiled the altar of your heart with sin, let the fire of the Spirit cleanse it that you May offer praise unblemished to Adonai. So be it.  The candle in the middle, that lights the others, is called the "shamash" candle, which means the "servant" candle. The Messiah, in Isaiah 52:13 is described as "the Servant" Who is "highly exalted." Elsewhere He is called "the light". Is it any wonder that the "Servant candle" is exalted above the others and provides light to the rest of the candles? Messiah called us to be "the light of the world". Let us shine forth...not seeking to take His exalted spot but shining forth for the glory of the Shamash! Happy Hanukkah from Hazakim!!!
