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.

 Guys, seeing the Western Wall had me speechless and in tears. A great deal of scripture came to mind and I was overcome with a great burden in my soul for Israel's salvation. I was reminded of Yeshua's heart for his beloved people. I encourage you all to visit Jerusalem. I've been many places, but nothing tops this one. Shalom. - Mike #prayforthepeaceofjerusalem #israel #hazakim  For lovers of urban art and former writers such as myself, here's a little #TelAviv #Graffiti we spotted in our walks through the city today.
 The site of Solomon's Temple and Herod's Temple. A powerful moment for me. - Tony  To all those who have given in this effort, we appreciate you. Your prayers, support, and giving made it possible by the grace of God! It is a thing of beauty....isnt it? #PraiseGod
