Fahad Azam[1] (born c. 1976), better known by his stage name Mr. Capone-E, is an American rapper.

Azam graduated from Canyon Springs High School in Moreno Valley, California in 1994.[2] A gang member, Azam was released from prison in 1998 and decided to become a rapper.[3] As Mr. Capone-E, Azam established his own record label, Hi-Power Entertainment.[4] Mr. Capone-E debuted in 2000 with Mr. Capone-E & the Southsiders and later signed to Thump Records, where he released his later works including his 2003 album Dedicated 2 the Oldies in which he interpolated songs like "Angel Baby" by Rosie & the Originals.[5] Mr. Capone-E's first album to chart on the American Billboard charts was A Soldier's Story from 2006, which reached #30 on the Top Heatseekers chart.[6] Mr. Capone-E has described his music as "Sureño hip hop".[1]

Rapper Capone has said that Mr. Capone-E is of Pakistani descent, not Mexican as Capone-E has claimed.[7][8]

In 2006, Capone-E collaborated with Twista for the single "Don't Get It Twisted". That song charted at #40 on the Billboard Rhythmic Top 40 chart.[9]

Under pressure from Mayor Ed Clark and Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck, King Productions canceled a concert of Mr. Capone-E in Greeley, Colorado in January 2008. The government officials were concerned that Capone-E's music would glorify gangs.[10]
