A professional writer since 2007, Ismael AbduSalaam is the creator of Beats, Boxing & Mayhem, a website specializing in Hip-Hop and boxing culture, a member of the Boxing Writer’s Association of America (BWAA), and a freelance writer. He was a former staff writer/boxing columnist for AllHipHop.com.

A Knicks fan since his childhood the early 90s, Ismael started NYKloyalist.com as a tribute to his beloved squad. As expected, this endeavor has lead to severe hypertension, violent mood swings and a likely premature death.
