Abyusif, the man, the myth, the legend, is ready for his 634,789th comeback, and with each one he rarely disappoints. His perpetually evolving sounds have both pioneered and become a reflection of an ever-growing modern Egyptian rap scene.

Half a year ago Abyusif began teasing a new album and after what we’re sure were countless iterations and a proverbial bin full of crumpled tracks, we’ve landed on ‘Ras Shitan’. Deemed more than good enough to finally see the light of day, fans are in for a treat.

Produced by Ismail Nosrat, it’s a sort of culminating sound from a decades worth of Abyo rolled into 9 tracks that veer between his lyric heavy rap-beatmode best over hard-hitting trap to the more emotional and melodic vocals of recent years.

#SceneNoise puts the spotlight on the anticipated project, his new deal with Beatroot Records, and some unfinished business within the rap scene.
