1) What do you love about Hip Hop and Rap ?
I love the fact that hip hop is lyrical art and I love the honesty of that art and how it can be deliver a topic easily to the listener without restrictions like other types of music.
2) When did you start rapping ?
I started when I was 17, writing lyrics about things that happened in my life and with the love for rap I decided to combine it together. When I met DJ Outlaw who is the middle east best DJ, I joined the outlaw productions about two years ago and started from then and still continuing.
3) Why did you choose to rap in Arabic?
Well I first looked into the scene and found thousands of rappers who rapped in English and a few who rapped in arabic who are good. I am good in Arabic as its my first language and I found it more fun and its a blessful language and it fits with hip hop art. Arabic rap is currently growing and I think one day it will be one of the important genre in the Middle East.

My inspiration is the man Dj Outlaw, we work 24/7 to make it happen and we motivate each other in chasing our dreams.
