Here’s some hype videos and groups from the Arab world people should be up on. I’m always amazed at how so many groups from around the world use rap as a crucial communications tool to speak truth to power and now in the digital age provide images that let us know how life is in their neck of the woods. Below you have cuts from some of my favorites including Lowkey out of Britian, Narcy out of Montreal / Iraq, Clotaire K out of Lebanan/ France, Salome out of Iran and Dam out of Israel/ Palestine.. There are lots more to peep but we’ll start folks off with this batch..

The Narcicyst– P.H.A.T.W.A. (Montreal/Iraq)
Clotaire K ‘Lubnan’ (Beruit)
Salome Scream To Let Your Voice Be Heard (Iran)
