In the midst of Revolution, Egyptian rap group, Arabian Knightz, releases the first song to come out of Egypt since the revolution and complete internet/communications blackout. The song titled, "Rebel", is produced by, Iron Curtain, and features a sample of Lauryn Hill on the hook. "Rebel" was recorded right in the middle of the Revolution and subsequently is being released on the first day of restored internet services.
Due, to the uncertainty of the communications situation in Egypt right now, Arabian Knightz have opted to release the raw, unmixed track because they need the world to hear their message. As of right now, they are the voice for the people of Egypt.
Arabian Knightz, is a Cairo-based rap outfit, comprised of emcees: Rush, Sphinx, & E-Money. They record music with both Arabic & English lyrics.
"Rebel" is an emotionally empowering song that captures the heart, courage & spirit of the Egyptian people currently embattled in a Revolution against an oppressive leadership.
Arabian Knightz have been featured on: General Steele's album, "Amerikkka's Nightmare 2" (Duck Down records), DJ Warrior & Rebellion Records "Unity Vol 1." (Middle East Meets Japan) mixtape, and members Sphinx & Rush are 1/2 of Middle East supergroup, WPNRY (pronounced "Weaponry"), which is being hailed as the Middle East version of Slaughterhouse & the 4HRSMN.
Arabian Knightz debut album, Uknighted State of Arabia, is set for a mid-2011 release.
The following song is for free download and any kind of radio play or audio streaming. Thank you!
