Happy 21st Birthday Nabil
If you knew Nabil too, you would know that there are people in Belgium that have Moroccan origins whose mother language is Flemish.  If you knew Nabil too, you would be sure that the art of creating a world using nothing but images is what defines him perfectly. If you knew Nabil too, you’d love the friendship he gives you and the way he keeps it. If you knew Nabil too… Well, you’ll know him soon enough. Happy Birthday. -Kevin
“They say people in your life are seasons, and anything that happens is for a reason”. Global warming is there and people also say there are no more seasons. That means this friendship is going to last, bruh. Much love, as ususal, brother. –Tawfik
I don’t need no special day to show you love, and you know it.  -Moh

Jay-Z brings out Kanye West at Hackney Weekend 2012

With the Watch The Throne tour finished, many of us thought that it’d be a long time before we see Hova and Yeezi on the same stage again. Well, we were wrong. Jay-Z brought out not only Rihanna and M.I.A. during his set, but also Kanye West. They performed various songs from the WTT Tour setlist, a sort of recap if you missed the Tour. Not bad huh ? For some immigrants


Classic Video: 
Iam - Petit Frère

Back to 1997, when this Marseille-based group was the shit and when our big brothers were listening to old school rap before it was cool. The track, which is french for “Little Brother”, talks about kids growing up too fast and start mobbing. The song sampled Wu Tang Clan’s C.R.E.A.M. and is taken from their third album named L’école Du Micro D’argent (= The School Of The Silver Mic). Over here in France, this album is considered as a classic.

Back in my days, when I was a young kid, I remember when the trumpet of the song was resonating in my neighborhood, and when my big brother and cousins used to ride to this. I see my whole childhood crystal clear everytime I hear it. Music is a true time machine.
