HollowDreamz is a concept album that sets out Salloum's belief in challenging social constructs and the importance of the individual. From this you can already tell that Salloum is a more intellectual and deep thinking artist than most rappers. His rapping style is fast and flowing with a great capacity for rhyme and wordplay, not dissimilar to Eminem in terms of delivery. In terms of his spiritual and political message he is similar to someone like Chuck D from Public Enemy.  ―

Besides shattering the limits and expanding the possibilities of current hip-hop trends as a conscious and cultural force, “HollowDreamz” shines for its blend of diverse samples, infectious beats, and intelligent lyrics. Moreover it’s Salloum’s fiercely intelligent vision and his compelling delivery that makes the album totally worthwhile.

Salloum makes great music, which is meaningful and fun to listen to. As a hiphop artist Salloum has aimed his talent at his lyricism, which is consistent in the eye-opening social commentary in each of his songs. In “HollowDreamz”, that commentary is very present; however there is never a feeling of over-preachiness. ―
