Moroccan Pop Artist "MANAL" releases "TAJ" // A woman empowerment track


Born in 1993 in Casablanca, Morocco, Manal started singing at the age of 6. In 2015 Manal released her debut single ‘Denia’, a song she had written and composed. This song also got her the ‘Best Female Artist North Africa’ AFRIMA Awards that year. In 2016 Manal signed a management deal with ‘RPEG Ltd’ founded by Wu-Tang Clan artist and producer Cilvaringz. 
In April 2017 Manal released her second single ‘Koulchi Ban’ and in October 2017 signed a multi-year recording and representation contract with Sony Music Entertainment Middle East.

She just released the video for her new track "Taj" which means "Crown". Its so dope to see a young Arab female artist addressing & pushing women empowerment via her songs. Enjoy the video, watch it & share it.

Q&A with Manal will be on Re-Volt very soon! Stay Tuned!

WRITE ON | Legend Of Hip-Hop Ink Slingers || Kickstarter

Woke up today morning and this was the first thing I saw.. what a beautiful & very important initiative.. 
The below is a documentary about the journalists, the souls that shaped hip-hop. I've always been an advocate of "Showing Love" to the bloggers, writers, filmmakers, etc... the people behind the scene that don't get enough credit sometimes. Their work is very important and I am honored to be a Hip-Hop blogger from the Middle-East since 2007. I myself wish I am included somehow in the below..

If you're a Hip-Hop head, a hip-hop activist, a hip-hop lover, a human being that appreciates good and authentic vibes, I believe its your duty to support the below & give back. Let's make it happen guys! Let's give a salute to the slingers that kept Hip-Hop ALIVE!

Syreeta Gates, showing you LOVE & RESPECT all the way from the Middle-East. It's amazing that Hip-Hop has connected me with so many amazing people. I am blessed. #HipHopIsOne

47 Soul RELEASE their NEW ALBUM "Balfron Promise"

Hailing from Jordan & Palestine, I've been following/supporting 47 Soul since they started. I love how they were able to break-through and also be able to connect with both Arab & Non-Arab speakers.

They celebrate Freedom & Equality in their music. Their goal is to break barriers through what they what they call now "Shamstep" which is an Electro-Arabic Dabke genre. 

It's all about the energy and its also about the message they have in their music. They are currently signed to "Cooking Vinyl" which is an Independent Record Label Based in the U.K 

They just release their NEW album "Balfrom Promise" out of which they have release the single from the album Oct 2017 with a great video that you can watch here

As I am writing this, I am giving the album a listen and I am LOVING "Moved Around", its quickly becoming my fav but I still need to listen to it again & again! 

You can STREAM the Album on Anghami, Check it out & Yalla, Support the 47 !!!
