The Rap Songs Of The Arab Spring

A few weeks back I wrote about some of the protest songs that have come out of the #Jan25 revolution in Egypt. But as the revolutions have spread across the Middle East, so has the need for music to document the movement.

Here's a short piece on the music and the movement from NPR:
The Rap Songs Of The Arab Spring : The Record : NPR

Check out Egypt Protest Songs on YouTube

And this article on Arab Spring Music.

As we move from Spring into Summer ... the heat is on hip hoppers ... all over the world. kfox.

This just proves that rap or hiphop music is not all about drinking or partying, it can be used to voice out political sentiments and thoughts.
