List of the Best Moroccan Hip Hop Artists

The rise of Moroccan hip hop has created not only North Africa’s, but also the Arab World’s largest rap and hip-hop scene and market.  With a population of over 35 million, mostly residing along the coast, and the majority of the population being younger than 50 years old only makes sense of the recent popularity of rap music that has grown into a large roster of Moroccan rappers.

Arabic Hip Hop

While hip-hop and rap music in the Arab world maybe the one of the world’s least popular markets, at least compared to the America, Europe, and Asia, but there still is a large presence that is mostly within the region of North Africa.

Due to a number of reasons, from instability with civil and international conflicts to the very strict and conservative daily lifestyles, Hip Hop artists, along with Hip Hop music in general, have not had a strong presence in the Middle East, with exception to the Palestinian group of DAM, Syrian artists of Moudy Alarbe and Amer Wakka and maybe the top rap artist of the Middle East, Klash, who is based in Saudi Arabi, and  from Syria.

Another important note of Arabic hip-hop is the role that it has played in local and regional activism.  Whether key top artists inspiring a movement or popular songs reaching the masses motivating the people, hip hop in the Arab World has numerous occasions been used as a tool, despite the trouble it may lead some artists and individuals, like Moroccan rap artist L7a9d who was imprisoned for criticizing Morocco’s leadership.

Since traditionally the Arab World is very conservative, Hip Hop has not always been well liked and is somewhat banned in some Arab countries, or if not banned the genre of music is suppressed, but mainly in the Middle East. 

Northern African countries were some of the first countries to truly embraced Hip Hop, especially with the ties to France that date back to the late 1800s and the early 1900s after colonization by the French, with continued ties following.  Some can make that claim that French hip hop was the first form of foreign rap music, or France was the first location that hip-hop appeared outside the United States.

Today, with North Africa being somewhat less conservative than the Middle East, the bulk of hip-hop within the Arab World comes from the likes of Tunisia, Morocco, and other North African countries.

Moroccan Hip Hop

Morocco is far from an underdeveloped nation and so is the local music scene, which mostly consists of Moroccan pop stars, but also, as mentioned, has a very large lineup of Moroccan rappers that have grown the largest hip hop market and rap scene within the Arab world.

As Moroccan hip hop resides in a country that was one of the first Arab countries to adopt and implement hip-hop into their society, culture, and daily lifestyles, the genre has seen much growth since its arrival during the 1990s.  Whether performing in Arabic or performing in French, there is no shortage of talent with Moroccan rappers.
