The 2Famous.TV Radio Show (YES, this blog has its own radio show) has lately turned into start of the weekend music and culture festival! An opportunity for locals to listen to amazing music, learn from incredible people, and drink deeply discounted beer. Other people in the rest of the world can stream live on the Internet!
In a time where independent media is almost non-existent we think it is important to make a completely independent radio show for you guys.
So with no hidden agendas, apart from giving you guys a good time, we are always searching for the best Lebanese and regional bands, artists, bloggers, and interesting people to stream to you directly.
Adrian is still on vacation, so in this episode Matias is joined by Allan, the lead vocalist of Lazzy Lung. Other musical guests and cohosts include freestyle machine Double A the Preacherman, Syrian rock band Tanjaret Daghet, and beatboxer Sal G from Aleppo.
Young and promising, Tanjaret Daghet passed by and played a couple of songs, this one being Tenfesseh, the day before they played at the Beirut and Beyond Festival.
Sal G from Aleppo, Syria has been beatboxing for 2 years and 10 months and he shows us some of the dubstep, hardcore, ultra fast stuff he’s up to.
Hip hop legend and Free-Style SuperStar Double A the Preacher Man, from Saida, tells us why he only freestyles before he goes on a jam session on some beats by Allan and then by Sal G.

We made a mini documentary to find out!
