About Hazakim

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


All of creation groans with achin’ bones,
we wait and long for the day that His face is shown.


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.

 A dear supporter of Hazakim, unbeknownst to us, designed this shirt, featuring a quote from the Theophanies track "Fulfilment" - to help us raise money for our Israel outreach in Nov. The imagery juxtaposes the two roles of Messiah as Suffering Servant and Reigning King - using the rabbinic designations of these roles as Messiah "ben" (which means "son of") Joseph the suffering Messiah, and Messiah son of David the reigning Messiah.

 Visit GNFI.ORG for details on how you can support.  Our paternal grandmother. This lovely woman exemplified faith and consistency in a way rarely seen. Im sure when we get to heaven, she'll greet us looking very similar to this picture. Make your life count for the Lord...everything else is just "filler".
 Old school dad pic. My dad has been a huge encouragement to me lately. His resilience and strength give me an example to follow. Thanks Dad. - Tony.  This is only a request.
