Mideast Tunes brings us a group of Egyptian rappers which under the name Arabian Knightz wish to spread their perspective on the recent events shaking their country. From the site:
In the midst of Revolution, Egyptian rap group, Arabian Knightz, releases the first song to come out of Egypt since the revolution and complete internet/communications blackout. The song titled, “Rebel”, is produced by, Iron Curtain, and features a sample of Lauryn Hill on the hook. “Rebel” was recorded right in the middle of the Revolution and subsequently is being released on the first day of restored internet services
Thumbs up for Mideast Tunes website for featuring Middle Eastern musicians who wish to incite social change. Particularly now that social change is taking place throughout the region. Just last month, right before the Tunisia revolt which managed to remove the President, a musician known as The General was arrested. The motive? His song President, Your People Are Dying.
