|Anghami Cypher - Design By Raed Al-Murish|
I've always been a fan of Cyphers, for me it just shows unity, its so Hip-Hop. I was blessed to do Two Cyphers on Re-Volt. You can check them out here
When I first joined Anghami last August, I pitched an idea for doing an Anghami Cypher and I was given a go-ahead. The project took around six months to finish and I made sure I execute a video as well. This project drops tonight 20th June on Anghami and I am so honored. Will post the link once its LIVE ..

Lebanese/French Radio Host/Rapper/Filmmaker Salim Saab aka Royal S who hosts "Aswat El Madina" on Radio Monte Carlo Doualiya has put together and directed A Documentary about Lebanese Hip-Hop.
What I personally appreciate is his efforts, I believe it was only him shooting the scenes. The "dialogue" and what the rappers/Graffiti/Dancer say is very interesting. Lebanon is known to be very vibrant and lots of amazing young talent are starting to pave their own path. There's a nice eco-system in Lebanon at the moment.
He's on the verge of applying to few festivals, hence the FULL Documentary is not online yet, but I was given private access and I salute him for his efforts.
"...I made this documentary to put the light on all those amazing artists we have in Lebanon. To show a good side of my country thru Hip-Hop. And It's also a tribute to the city of Beirut. And I wanted to show that people can be united thru music and art." Salim told Re-Volt Blog
Check out the Teaser below and support a brother..

It didn't take a lot for me to get excited about the latest project from Soutrotter .. its captivating because it captured human values and existential through street art and spoken word.
I couldn't but to reach out to Philip Jamal Rachid and Dusty Dust to get a closer input about this...
"This project is created to bring street artists from different parts of the world together and show the region how we can break the norm and deliver content with depth and authentic" said Philip who is half Bulgarian, Half Iraqi/Kurdish and grew up in Amesterdam, "..So, officially, I never really belonged anywhere. Until I universally found myself in arts.."
|Dusty Dust, Bahraini B-Boy|
Dusty Dust, who is a Bahraini B-Boy (one of my fav in the Middle-East) is behind the dance in the below video, "..It's Like being afraid of nobody is the reason why nobody exists. Be The Difference inbetween everybody..." Dusty Dust expressed his feelings about the project.
"We as humans are more than our looks and what we have. We are spiritual beings ans with our energy we can mae a positive change. It is all about REALIZING that.." Philip told me..
Music was done by Ynot - An allround Artist/Bboy/Beatcreator from USA and Vice President of the Legendary Rock Steady Crew.
Motion Graphics are done by the talented Russian artist Anastasia Maystrenko and supervised by Gary Fedorenko / JJAgency.
