From internal checkpoints and Separation Walls to gender norms and generational differences, this is the story of young people crossing the borders that separate them. Featuring: DAM from Lyd, PR (Palestinian Rapperz) from Gaza, ABEER from Lyd, Arapeyat from Akka, Mahmoud Shalabi from Akka.

an Arabic hip-hop group from Lebanon, was formed by two Beirut-based rappers whose music is a discourse about a society marked by civil war. Rayess Bek, one of AKS'SER members, has gone on with a solo career, releasing a widely acclaimed album, Aks'ser was recently signed by EMI.

Aks'ser means “against the current” but also “going against the traffic” – something the Lebanese are famous for.

SKIN mag: "Aksser, a trio of early-20 something guys, has a sense of humour and a feel for the linguistic gymnastics that Arabic rap requires. Aksser is made up of Waël Kodeih, Houssam Fathallah and Tarek Yamani."

Suhier Hammad is a poetess/rapper and Palestinian refugee who was raised in Brooklyn. She "consistently focuses on a sense of deprivation and discrimination and a message of political and social activism and empowerment." Hammad recently performed at Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam's Rap Unplugged, which is meant to be a "platform for minority and marginalized voices." Through her performance on Def Poetry Jam, Hammad was able to reach a large public audience, and has begun taking strides to reach the hip hop mainstream. Also, she has given the public a glimpse of hip hop's international role as a voice of the downtrodden. "Hip hop has a tradition of...imparting your parents' historical legacy when that history has been marginalized in schools and in the mainstream. I understand the Palestinian diasporic situation better through hip hop," explains Hammad.

One Arab American rapper who is known specifically for his political style is Iron Sheik. Will Youmans, a.k.a. Iron Sheik, a Palestinian American Dearborn native is leading the "pack...of underground politicized Arab American rappers and MC's."28 His name, Iron Sheik, was derived from the 1980 Iranian World Wrestling Federation star who was known for his depiction of Arabs as the stereotypical Middle Eastern villain. In his use of the name, Youmans hoped to make a statement against all such stereotypes and redefine what the name stood for. Like DAM, Youmans was influenced by Arabic classics, Um Kulthum, Fairouz, and Abdel Halim Hafez, and by hip hop greats like Chuck D and Flavor Flav. Although, he has been rapping since his youth, the Sheik says he is an "'activist first, then an MC. I got back into producing hip hop as an alternative way to communicate the messages and ideas I work with." 29 According to the Sheik, hip hop is a great platform to educate politically because youth are "seduced by the rap industry."30 So the Sheik delivers witty messages laced with smooth tracks in songs like "Low Expectations" in which he rhymes:

We got a joke as a President, but I can't laugh
that fool of a man's behind a bloodbath
We got a joke of a President leading this nation
..Low Expectations!

Like their counterparts in the Middle East, Arab American hip hop artists, such as Philistines, Iron Sheik, Juna, Furious, and DJK-Salaam, use the mic to address Arab issues both in the United States and abroad.25 Many of these rappers are not thugs, but rather graduates from institutions like University of California at Berkeley and George Washington University, who use witty lines and political jargon in order to present the minority's view to mainstream society.

DAM is a trio of rappers, Tamer Nafer, Suhell Nafer, and Mahmud Jiery, who hail from Ramleh, Palestine. The group's name means blood in both Arabic and Hebrew and is also associated with the English curse word. DAM blends the influences of 2pac and Mos Def's American hip hop flavor with the traditional Arabic music greats, George Wasouf and Fairuz.19 DAM "sing about the racism and living as third class citizens, police brutality , and wanting to be united with all Arabs around the world."20 In songs such as "Who's the Real Terrorist?," DAM spit powerful lyrics in Arabic in attempt to raise political awareness of the Palestinian struggle. Documentarian Jacqueline Sacalloum produced a highly politicized music video for DAM's song "Who's the Real Terrorist?." But unlike mainstream music videos, DAM's short documentary style video did not include scantily clad women or enormous diamond chains. The video was a blend of disturbing footage that showcased acts of violence against Palestinian people and a provocative track that begged the viewer to question who the real terrorists were.

"Checkpoint 303 is a collective of artists from Palestine, Tunisia and France that creates electronic experimental music that carries a strong message for peace and justice. Our musical but also visual compositions reflect (-and are a reflection upon-) both the reality of life in the Middle East and the aspirations and hope of the civilian populations throughout the region for a better future. In particular, Checkpoint 303 attempts to speak about Palestine in a radically novel way. The name of the project is inspired by the name of a real military checkpoint in the West Bank, called Checkpoint 300, which separates Bethlehem from East Jerusalem. In a way, Checkpoint 303 is a virtual artistic checkpoint. The project was launched at the end of 2004 by Palestinian SC Yosh and Tunisian SC MoCha. The principle was quite simple, the Sound Catcher (SC) Yosh records sounds from the streets and homes of various West Bank cities and then the Sound Cutter (SC) MoCha slices the sounds into short audio samples and uses mixes them with electronic beats and Oud melodies to recreate the soundtrack of life in Palestine. The interaction between the field recording and the electronic audio compositions aspects are strengthened by input from various other artists that have joined the collective. These include Sheikh Julio (visuals and audio field recordings), Miss K SuShi (keyboards) and Mehdi Douss (electric guitar). SC Yosh and SC MoCha that started off this project back in 2004 are long-time friends that met towards the end of the 90s in Tunis."
