As you must have read on the news a few weeks ago, there was an awful bomb in Downtown Beirut, Lebanon, which killed innocents and a respectable politician. A few hours later, Matias and I were hosting 2famous.tv’s weekly radio show.
The show turned out to be a great cheering up session to all of us, especially that 2 of our guests live-performed songs they had written that same day, expressing themselves about the situation: Edd Abbas, a very talented hip-hop singer and The Unplugged Poets, an upcoming band of 4 young Lebanese who sing rap and plays rock music.
From all the guests invited that day, The Unplugged Poets were my favorite crush. I loved their avant-guardiste genre and I was truly touched with that song entitled “Sometimes It’s Hard”. Its lyrics can be read below with the video performance. Also, and most importantly, the band started hip-hop jamming right after that song with Edd Abbas! That was so cool (you can listen to that jamming session from minute 44.37 and Matias should upload its video pronto ;)).
For more awesomeness, you can check their YouTube and SoundClound channels. As for the podcast of last week’s radio show and my song crushes from the band:
“Sometimes It’s Hard”
