Our dear friend and artist Malhoun X referred me to a wonderful Rapper in Morocco hailing from Tanja. Not the ridiculous Bigg Elkhasser or the other groups that twitter lyrics with neither impact nor purpose or moral reminder. Malhoun X is talking about the diamonds in the rock. His name is Muslim. I listened to some of his work and I was very moved and touched by this one song called SLAMI. The lyrics are fantastic! I hope you listen to it and enjoy it. It's the kind of darija lyrics that make you proud. You almost forget you're listening to Hip Hop. The continuous stream of meaningful lyrics takes over. He goes on citing all the characteristics of a good Moroccan samaritan man and woman, of all walks of life. I leave you with Muslim in "SLAMI" (My Regards, or probably a more charged translation would be My RESPECT!)

This rapper is really a true jewel at the level writing. I qualify him as being the revival of Boujmi3 of Nass El Ghiwane for his pure and true fervour of a rap. Our Morocco does not need commercial rap which will be added to all the purely commercial bullshit which rot our musical culture. Yes, we want to enjoy ourselves but doing that take us an art which involves in the social life, an art capable of making us think about our future. An art of real culture which moves our spirits and not an art of subculture which worships the ridiculous.
Rima you can try to dowload the track with a good quality of the sound here:
Forgot to mention, you can't upload songs to your raioo profile. I didn't work on that capability yet. What you can do though is find the song in youtube for example, and embed the video in your article body.
MAZAGAN, yes I know them rima! the answer to Hoba Hoba Spirit I guess :) I love their LOGO
I probably like one song so far: Groovawahia! although a muhsup of a classic chaabi song, but they did an ambient job!
Some of their other songs are just ok, not too original, same old foreign beats/melodies superimposed on darija lyrics that don't rhyme well and don't inspire thaaaat much. Sometimes they alternate in a single song between rock, african, reggada, chaabi, and I guess that's their idea of new music. I call it experimentation, khallat'ha tassfa sort of thing. It's ok.
hii well i tried to listen to the song but didnt get the impression that the lyrics takes over the rhythm. i wonder if u guys ever came across a moroccan band called Mazagan they have a pretty style of singing i wanted to upload one of their songz but i dont know how
