Hijabi Girl 02:49
When I first met you, you were standing there with that scarf it was covering all your hair. And we got to talking I realized you were cool now I just want to take a walk with you to school. Hijabi Girl, won't you say something? Hijabi Girl, why won't you do nothing? Can I walk with you, please don't think I'm rude. I like your modest girl, I like your attitude. With you anime eyes, rainbow shoelace ties. Now I just want a wholesome good time. Hijabi Girl, not a burqa girl, like beautiful bird you co rocked my world. You're not material, you're ethereal. Hot like hibachi, won't you be my habibi,. Ya got me cuz you're righteous might just feel the call of my devotion like the crescent of the moon reflecting the ocean. Hijabi Girl, won't you say something? Hijabi Girl, why won't you do nothing? (Let's Rock, Let's Rock, Hijabi Rock with you) [Turkish poem] When I first saw you, you took my breath away. I'm half the man I could be, at least what I try to say. (Hijabi Rock x2) We don't have to tell your father.


Generation Post-911's own Cihan Kaan, emerges from creative exile mixing synth pop lines with high concept verbage and techno 80's hooks. Still remaining in his lo-fi 8Bit roots songs like "Hijabi Girl" seem like they came from a busted cassete tape from 1988 freestyle mixtape. Followed by the trip-hoppy ballad 'Fat' where the artist decrees he "can't find a place in your mythology" and important questions like "would you love me if I was fat". The minimal hip-hop "Soul Taking Has Been" remixed from the Brooklyn Hoodratz album "Schemes & Treachery" in 2000 tells the true story of broken young love. Overall, Cihan Kaan, writer of the book "Halal Pork & Other Short Stories" creates an audio counterpart of diverse storytelling and creative production.
