Multi-talented artist, songwriter, and influencer, L’omari, is from Miami by way of Doha, Qatar and Toronto, Canada. His upbringing, craft, and hustle place him in his own lane. After learning English at 13, he soon after began writing lyrics and poetry, allowing his lyricism to flow so smoothly with or without a beat.
The Lyrical Socialite
Inspired by the lyrical giants on his brother’s playlists (Nas, Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Wu-Tang Clan, etc), L’omari marries classic Hip Hop with his own style and flow. Hip hop’s hidden gem made his mark on the music industry in 2018 with his impactful single “Glorious,” releasing the track on the one year anniversary of a diplomatic crisis that occurred in Qatar. The 2018 hit single was more than just a track, it was a beacon of hope to uplift his people and country. A patriot song dedicated to king Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani with politically-charged verses that are followed with a light-hearted hook.
As a well-rounded artist and influencer, and also the CEO of BidWin Music Group, LLC and Board Member of the Qatar Music Foundation, L’omari utilizes his talent and passion for music to spread positivity throughout the world with his unique and stylish brand of socially and internationally conscious hip-hop.
His 2019 single “BidWin” is the musical expression of the multifaceted artistry that is L’omari. The word “Bedouin” means an original Arab from the desert, however, to coincide with his lifestyle, he switched up the spelling. For L’omari, all he does is “bid” and “win,” especially in his new stomping grounds of Miami, Florida. Bringing traditional Arabic sounds and contemporary trap triplets are what sets this track apart, a perfect summer anthem. He really put his foot on the music industry’s neck with this record.

Just to give you an idea of what’s to come, here’s a snippet of him spitting his hard-hitting lyrics to J. Cole’s “MIDDLE CHILD” while chillin’ in a Bentley with his pet monkey.
