Rap Around the World 1.4 – Arab Rap
This young lady is brilliant. Arabic has a tradition of style and poetry that is second only to Swahili – which is influenced significantly by Arabic. This Lebanese rapper actually incorporates the older traditions into a what began as a sui generis American art form. It is simply incredible.
She is more than brilliant – she is also endangered. Her primary theme revolves around the plight of women in Arab societies. So every time she appears publicly to perform may be the last time she does it.
I hope you are as impressed with this as I am.
