When it comes to the rap scene in the Middle East and Arab diaspora, the sheer amount of releases on a weekly basis means that it's nigh on impossible to whittle them down to 10. Alas, SceneNoise has taken this most burdening of responsibilities on its shoulders and a week of inter-office arguments, two impassioned speeches and one impromptu rap battle between two Noise writers who don't rap have gone into finalising this week's selection. Enjoy.
