We recently featured Marwan Moussa, an Egyptian rapper, producer and comic wordsmith with a distinct style that stands out as stylistically unique amidst the Middle Eastern rap scene. We had mentioned that Marwan had an album coming out in the next few months, but we didn’t think that bel monasba would drop this soon. Two weeks ago, from his current Los Angeles outpost, Marwan let the album slip into the world unannounced apart for an Instagram post.
Bel monasba showcases Moussa’s tact for merging both old school and cutting edge styles, incorporating elements of trap, jazz and even reggae. In addition to Moussa’s nonchalant, subtly funny lines, he features a number of other artists.
Get at this album - Merry Christmas from Marwan Moussa.
