Biniyam is a 18-year-old German/Ethiopian rapper and producer from Helsinki, Finland. The odd mix of heritage has an impact to his somewhat eccentric style in music and performance.

Biniyam recently released his debut project on Cocoa Music called "Biniyam EP” - a seven song introduction to the rapper which is available as a free download. The release and its video single for the track “1ne” ended up being featured on several blogs around the world including Ja Ja Ja, Nordic By Nature and Nordic Playlist, and the music video got featured on MTV Iggy, all with rave reviews. The Finnish national public-broadcasting company YLE picked the single for a week long power play.

Regardless of his young age Biniyam has already shared stages with the likes of Oddisee and Phonte. He is currently working on new songs.

"The German-Ethiopian rapper shows off his well honed lyrical muscle, showcasing some highly skilled and seriously interesting vocal work throughout the track.” - Ja Ja Ja

"Biniyam is the latest in an invigorating series of hip hop talents to have emerged from the Finnish capital in recent months, and the 18 year old rapper has proved himself more than worthy of our avid attention with the release of the Biniyam EP this week.” - Nordic Playlist
