The Music

Here’s a track from one of my favorite groups. Fareeq el Atrash is a hip hop band out of Beirut Lebanon, highly regarded as one of the pioneers in the Middle East. Their sound is distinguished by laid back flows of clever word play and unique delivery styles from 2 talented MC’s that fall on opposite poles of the sonic spectrum. This track features a killer bass line and is perfect for your late night subway rides. Their latest record is available for streaming in it’s entirety on SoundCloud. – Cedar & Soil
