Tariq Nasheed is a very known film producer and a media star from United States.
He is known for his published books on relationships and his work on many documentary films which addressed mostly social issues.
Tariq was born on 1st of July 1974 in Detroit in Michigan in United States. There is not a lot of information about his early life and his childhood was pretty boring as he states.
He received his education from Yale University. This is, of course, a huge achievment.
In 2011 he produced another documentary film named “Hidden Colors” which wasn’t very successful but it was very important for him because he spoke about African and Aborigenes in it and this was the topic he was very sensitive about.
The series was produced by his own production company called “King Flex Entertainment” but he wasn’t the one who gave the resources and the money came from Kickstarter.
He used this series to describe the unjust status of African Americans in America and arround the world.
The series contains four episodes: The Untold History Of People Of Aboriginal, Moor, and African Descent; The Triumph of Melanin; The Rules of Racism and The Religion of White Supremacy. His nicknames are Tariq Elite and King Flex.
He’s not only a producer and an author but he’s also an actor and a fashion designer. This says a lot about his interests and how versatile they are.
He was very young when he moved from Detroit to Birmingham because he was never satisfied with Birmingham and the social scene in it.
That’s why he decided to move to Los Angeles when he was only 17 and a few months later he went on a trip around the world. This was a great experience for him since he learned a lot of things and gained experience.
He read a lot of books about psychology and he learned a lot of stuff about dating techniques while he was on his trip. This was a really interesting topic for him.
His technique is called “GIC 2” which stands for “Game, Intelligence and Common Sense squared”.
He started teaching these techniques to men and women in LA and since he realize that the techniques are very effective he decided to write a book about the topic.
It was the “Art of mackin” from 1999 and it was sold in almost 300,000 copies. This number of sold books brought him quite a big amount of money.
He self-published his book “The Art of mackin”. The book contains in his own personal assessment of relationships between male and female. He always tries to be clear and loud and says that people need some direct help, not stupid advice they can’t use.
This book became the New York Times bestseller and was one of the most read books about relationships in the whole year.
His second book was called “Play or be Played” and was meant for women. It gave advices and ideas about how to behave so you couldn’t get hurt.
In 2005 he published another book but this time he turned his attention towards men and the title was “The Mack Within”.
In 2008 he made some controversy with the release of his next book “The Art of Gold Digging”. He spoke about the forbidden theme about women who don’t get married because of love but for the money.
In 2009 he released “The Elite Way: 10 rules Men Must Know in Order to Deal With Women”. This was surely meant for men as the title says.
Tariq became very interesting to people and the public loved him so he was often called to shows such as “MTV Made”, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and similar.
Today he often lectures and gives seminars which is all followed by publishing and instructional DVDs. He is a host of his own radio show called “The Mack Lessons”.
He has his own perfume line called “Risque Elite”. This was another way for him to get extra income.
When he gets an idea to write a book he goes to Hawaii to have more privacy. It is one of the biggest accomplishment of his to be able to travel so much and he says that people should try to travel and meet new folks whenever they can.
The person who helped him the most to become popular and to be discovered was Michael Moore.
He hired Tariq to do some material for him in the period when he was a host on the Bravo Network.
He directed the horror movie called “The Eugenist” which was released in 2013. The horror film was also written and produced by him: it was called “Dark Medicine” in the original.
The story in the film is based on adventures of college kids who decided to break into an old, abandoned school just to sneak what is in it.
Once inside, they found out that the school is not really abandoned : there is someone with them. Someone who has been created years ago in an eugenics program which failed.
In 2017 he released his own documentary film called “1804” which is a film based on the history of Haiti and the situation today which came out of it.
His net worth is somewhere around 2 million dollars and growing by every book or film he releases.
He is happily married to his wife Peanut who was his longtime girlfriend (they dated seven years) and he keeps his marriage away from the media and doesn’t want to talk about it.
It is only only known that she was a fashion model and then they got married in 2014.
They have three little children and there were no rumors of any altercations in disputes between them.
His oldest child was a girl born in 1999. After that came a boy and the third child came in 2015 and it’s a boy named Asir Nasheed.
