Arabic Hip Hop

I was watching NatGeo Daredevils by Diego Bunuel (The show is called 'Don't tell my mother' in most other parts of the world) the other day, and Diego was hanging out with a few Palestinian rappers and their music really felt fresh and interesting. Being born and brought up in Muscat, Oman, anything middle eastern and arabic still has a very high appeal for me and I was just browsing through the various arabic hip hop videos on youtube when I came across this particular one. Its an old track, and the video is a pretty amateur attempt, but I could really feel their beat and the english rapper (Flipp - real name Hissam Aseem I think) is really good, like his voice and style. A great attempt by these guys!!!
