SYRIA (RESTORE) HAPPY - Pharrell #RestoreHappy

Beats, Rhymes & Relief & Love4Syria Launched #RestoreHappy, a fun video showcasing the resilience of Syria's children as they dance , smile & sing along to "Happy" . The video is a public relations appeal to support education and medical relief programs for Syrian Children

Read more about it HERE (Press Release)

The Children of Syria deserves happiness, they deserve to live their childhood, the one that is being "Stolen" from them. This video makes me smile to see the positivity & the hope in these souls BUT at the same time, I teared the first time I watched this, I teared not because I am an Arab; but because I am a human being that believes in equality for all.

This is the perfect reply to the sick minded people...I just feel sad & ashamed that I can not do anything to change these kids future. I salute the Beats,Rhymes & Relief & Love4Syria foundations for taking such an initiative in attempt to restore Happy. Watch it & please share everywhere.

It really has been a crazy couple of weeks for me, 2 weeks ago, I flew to Beirut to meet Chuck D of Public Enemy & just couple of days ago I flew to Dubai to meet up with Sudanese/American MC/Producer ODDISEE - If you aint familiar with his work, I do advise you to get acquainted with his material. He is all about being authentic!

It was a great honor to meet him. He also is a humble soul & is a true solid performer!

Big up to DJ Lobito & the DCC for bringing such an act to the Middle East!

Meeting The Legendary Chuck D (Public Enemy) in Beirut !

It was the early hours of the 14th May'14. I was checking my twitter feed and of all a sudden decided to search for "Chuck D" & to my surprise , I found a link that stated "CHUCK D in Beirut giving a talk about Hip-Hop in AUB on 15th May" 

I literally jumped off my seat & without thinking started to find a ticket from Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) to Beirut (Lebanon) - I did not have enough time & at around 3AM on 15th May (Exact Day of the talk) - I Managed to book my flight & flew to Beirut to meet this legendary soul. I was very excited as one of the community leaders in Beirut (Jackson Allers) arranged a small gathering with Chuck D & some of the local Hip-Hop Artists & few journalists/media guys. The second i walked into the cafe , I could glimpse Chuck & he recognized me and we embraced & i admit I felt emotional and respected in every single way. He is a soul that is true to all the things he says on his tracks and I respect that. 

We had a great discussion and talked about the importance of being collective, United & believing in your work. He spoke highly of Hip-Hop artists such as Jasiri X , Brother Ali & Immortal Technique. It was a nice chat up! 

We then had one of the best walks of my life , where we walked from the Cafe to the American University Of Beirut (Where the talk was being held) and it took us around 15-20 min but we all didnt feel it as we were havin great one on one talks with this legend who was walking the streets of Beirut!

Below are some pix

Where the talk took place 

The Talk that Chuck D had in AUB was truly inspiring , full of history facts and to the point. I loved it when he shouted me out, I loved it when he referred to himself as an EARTHIAN - A Citizen of the world & how we are all ONE BODY. His emphasis on being collective was again mentioned - "Stay The Course, Travel The Earth" Chuck D said ; We had a quick Q/A and at the end, the FULL packed lecture hall gave a huge applause to this man & his mind. 

One of the best moments in my life. Meeting, Connecting, Building & Chilling with the one & only , the legendary Chuck D

Thank you Beirut, Thank You AUB, Thank you world! Blessed
