With a new album, Talib, dropping imminently, much of the Arab rap world has its eyes firmly set on Syrian rapper, Bu Kolthoum. His last single from the LP, 'Shiva', offered another taste of what’s shaping up to be an eclectic album that sees the rapper at his most versatile and experimental yet - and it even caught the eyes of global music performance platform, COLORS.

The platform offers artists from across the world and the spectrum of genre to perform in a simple, one-color setting - and Bu Kolthoum absolutely kills it, Shiva showing him at his best - the flow, the attitude, the delivery. He knocks it out of the park. Mark the date, August 20th. Bring on the album.
