So I’ve previously post about Kuwaiti rappers and a country musician and so here is a Kuwaiti metalhead called Yousef. He has 4 sounds online, below is the metal one but you can hear his other songs [Here]
It was very strange walking into this store since it was mostly made up of cassette tapes with few CDs laid out in the middle. It reminded me of the early 90s when the market was just starting to get introduced to CDs and so I suddenly felt the urge to pick up a Vanilla Ice cassette.
What helped with this early 90s flash back was the fact that the majority of the tapes where from that era, Color Me Bad, Culture Beat, Dr Alban, you name it and they were all “Thomsun Original” branded tapes similar to the ones Bells and Swan Lake used to sell for those who still remember. At KD1 for 3 tapes thats a lot cheaper than the KD1.750 we used to pay for a single tape. Ah the good old days of The Video Club…
The store is located on the first floor of the parking lot building behind Johnny Rockets Salhiya.
Remember the trolololo song? Well the guy (now much older) made a live appearance recently and sung/lip synced his famous song again. It’s a very weird video with appearances by Darth Vader, what looks like the Village People and a Gorilla. [YouTube]
After posting the videos of the Kuwaiti rappers earlier in the month one of my readers contacted me to tell me about his cousin. He told me his cousin was an extremely talented piano player… and was blind. I thought that would be great to share on the blog so he recorded a short video of his cousin playing the piano which you can watch above. Naser was born blind and has been playing the piano since he was 4. [YouTube]
The video above is by Kuwaiti rapper A To The G and he actually mixes in English and Arabic. Video is well shot but skip the first minute. He’s an NES and ACK graduate and you can check out his YouTube channel [Here]. Oh he’s also a boxer.
The second Kuwaiti rapper is a guy going by the name BigMo. Below is one of his songs you can listen to and you can check out the following link for more songs. [Link] Pretty good stuff.
Kuwaiti rapper Moe is back with a new song called “About Me”. According to Moe he wrote this track specifically for the readers of my blog due to the responses he got from his first release. He wrote this track and finished it under a week. You can leave your feedback below. [YouTube]
Update: Here is a link to another Kuwaiti rapper called BigMo. Below is one of his songs you can listen to and you can check out the following link for more songs. [Link] Pretty good stuff.
I’m not really up to date on the latest rap scene since I’m still stuck in the 90s listening to the likes of Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Onyx, Cypress Hill, Dr Dre etc.. but I do think that if you are a Kuwaiti and want to rap it might be more interesting to do so in Arabic or Kuwaiti dialect. There are a lot of English rappers out there and it would be easier to stick out rapping in Kuwaiti I guess. Anyway Moe is a Kuwaiti rapper and the video above is one of his songs. Check it out and leave him your feedback. [YouTube]
