About

Melvin G Acquaah, Professionally known as Sabathil, is a hip-hop artist hailing from the Bronx, New York and raised in New Jersey. He currently resides in Arizona has been writing music for roughly 15 years with his late brother, Arizona artist Thaahum.

Thaahum (meaning the Commander of the stars) dubbed his brother Sabathil (meaning the the universe above all). They formed a group with two other artists calling themselves “The ETMCs” short for “The Extraterrestrial MC’s”. The group, however was short lived.

Following the break of the group, the dynamic brothers ventured out on their own performing at shows throughout the Arizona Hip-Hop Scene. Amongst their credits they boast opening for the group “Souls of Mischief, collaborating with film director Adam Rifkin and working with Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith). For a time they enjoyed a buzz outside of the Indie Hip-Hop realm and intertwined their music with film and comedy. The brothers created parodies of the songs “Baby Mama Drama Ills” and “Blue Balls” that were featured in the Showtime series “LOOK”.

After the passing of his brother, Sabathil vowed to continue his journey through music and challenges the social norms of modern rap by stepping up his lyrical content. He released his first EP 'Alpha Centari' in December of 2018, dedicated to Thaahum, who he has promised would be completed by the end of that year.
