A new track called “Dégage” (To Free) with flows in French & Arabic. It is a collaboration between African Fracophone hip hop pioneer Didier Awadi (Postivie Black Soul) of Sénégal and Sami Dorbez of Tunisia.
Wether you understand what they are singing or not, I hope you enjoy these good sounds that carry a message of change. I love the collaboration and solidarity it builds between West and North Africa. They are especially addressing the regime changes, uprisings and revolutions going on in their respective home-countries (albeit, they are global citizens).
I think this is especially important because we are seeing the way hip hop leaders around the world like Awadi are standing up to speak up with timely and relevant messages about the social/political realities of our time.
This. Is. #RAPtivism.
