Head Trauma Records or Genocide (Jusuf Hastings, New Zealand)
–Genocide, real name Jusuf Džilić was born in Bosnia (Former Yugoslavia). In 1992 as a young child he was trapped in the brutal conflict that over took Yugoslavia. His home town of Zvornik was one of the first places to fall under attack and resulted in the murder and ethnic cleansing of the entire Muslim population.
Jusuf watched from the hills as the tanks shelled the city and as the paramilitary forces moved in to cleanse the once beautiful and multi-cultural city. After managing to escape Bosnia, he arrived in Austria where thousands of other Bosnian victims had fled. After a few months there and visibly traumatized by the war he was accepted into Ireland as a refugee.
In Ireland, Jusuf went to school and learned English. Being a Refugee there in the mid 90’s had its consequences and Jusuf found himself as a target of severe Racism.
But this didn’t affect his love and respect for the country That offered him and a lot of his people a 2nd chance. It was during this time that Jusuf discovered hip hop. He soon began writing his own songs and selling tapes around the area where he lived.
In 2002 After finishing high school he moved to New Zealand to work for a year but ended up staying.
He still continued to write songs and in 2006 Jusuf was ready to spread his music.
Since 2006 Jusuf has done mixtapes, appeared in Magazines,
News Papers, features on international CDs to name a few.
All his music has been for free download on the internet
