Top Moroccan Rappers
List of the Best Moroccan Hip Hop Artists
Situated in Northern Africa, Morocco boasts one of the most extensive Arabic hip hop scenes, featuring Moroccan rappers who have risen to become some of the most prominent and well-liked international Arab stars. With a population exceeding 35 million, Morocco’s abundant collection of hip hop talents has contributed to the noteworthy growth of Arabic hip hop music.
While hip-hop within the Arab world maybe one of the world’s least popular forms of music, at least compared to the world’s much larger hip hop scenes, there still is a sizeable presence of hip hop music, but mostly situated in North Africa. Due to a number of reasons, hip-hop in the Middle East has yet to flourish, with exceptions to Palestinian’s DAM, Syrian’s Moudy Alarbe and Amer Wakka, and Klash, based in Saudi Arabi and originally from Syria.
With a strong connection to France, where some argue the initial adoption of international hip-hop emerged, North Africa’s presence has carried Arabic rappers into the world of hip hop. Arabic rap music has experienced significant growth since it appeared in the 1990s, with Morocco being at the lead.
