List of Top 25+ Tunisian Hip Hop Artists
Tunisian rappers and the forever growing hip hop market within Tunisia are part of a very underrated music scene that is based in North Africa. Tunisian hip hop artists have developed probably the largest rap scene within the Arab world, of both the Middle East and North Africa, with over 30 rap artists that have thousands of followers and millions of views and streams.
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 from the Middle East, Klash, who is based in Saudi Arabi.
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 often been used as a tool, despite the trouble that it may lead to some artists and individuals.
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 their ties to France. Some can make the 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.
Tunisia Hip Hop
Within Tunisia, artists like Hamada Ben Amor, also known as El General can be credited to spearheading and popularizing rap music in the northern African country, with popularity beginning to rise during the 2000s and vastly growing throughout the 2010s before reaching its peak during 2020.
Tunisian rappers like Balti, Sanfara, and Samara, along with many others, have created a large following while showcasing to the world the culture and lifestyles of Tunisia through their musical talents. Despite being one of the smallest Arabic countries, Tunisian hip hop artists are leading the way for both French and Arabic speaking rap artists, while hip hop has only been around very briefly in Tunisia.
