Assasi recently had the honor of collaborating with Palestinian MC, vocalist, and producer Big Sam. The resulting Teesmoke-produced track, “Face Off / تبديل وجه”, was released today as part of Big Sam’s new album, “Arram“.
“Face Off / تبديل وجه” exposes the frustrations shared by artists living in traditional societies where mainstream attitudes toward hip-hop range from ignorance to total disdain. Assasi and Big Sam tell us what it feels like to hide your true self under a second face – and what happens when they dare to wear their real face in public.
You can hear the rest of “Arram” and other dope tracks by Big Sam on SoundCloud and YouTube. Follow him on Instagram and Facebook!
