Biography and early life
Omar was born on 17 May 1991 in London, England but grew up in Islamabad. His great grandfather, Zafar Omar is credited to be the first Urdu crime and detective novelist with his book "Neeli Chathri" (blue umbrella). He dropped out of school at 17 to pursue a career in music.
Omar started writing lyrics and rapping at the age of 9 and began making music by 13. In 2008, Omar caught the attention of B-Real of Cypress Hill who invited him to visit Los Angeles, helping launch his music career.
Between 2010–2012, Omar put together The Mushroom Cloud Effect, a street album consisting of compiled tracks and unheard demos of Omar's early rapping and non-production work. The most notable song was "Paki Rambo".
Between 2013 - 2014, Omar was commissioned to write and perform Burka Avenger's "Lady In Black" theme song. Omar and Talal Qureshi joined Pakistani comedian Ali Gul Pir on #KholoBC to get the Pakistani authorities to lift the country's ban on YouTube. Upon its release, #KholoBC went viral in Pakistan and gained international coverage, beginning a government dialogue towards lifting the ban. The ban would later be lifted in 2016.
In March 2015, Omar and Talal Qureshi released an EP titled Saturday Night Killing Machine which came out with Omar's directorial debut for "Nighat & Paras" and followed by the duo's first showcase at SXSW, marking the birth of SNKM.
Having formed SNKM (an abbreviation for Sonic Nocturnal Kinetic Movement), Omar and Qureshi collaborated and performed with Diplo and Elliphant for their first ever Pakistan show. This was followed by the duo's second appearance at SXSW and Omar's solo EP Margalla King. In addition to SNKM's production debut, the EP also featured a collaboration with Bun B.
Omar was born with sound-color synesthesia, a neurological condition in which the person afflicted sees colors when tones are sounded.
