Two Rappers, Israeli And Palestinian, Use Their Talents For Unity

Some people say there is no protest music anymore.

The truth is a bit different though. All around the world, there are so many people hurting, anywhere you look, and this seemingly never changes. But, there are also so many artists using their creative minds to start positive conversations about how things can change for the better. This can easily be seen by checking out the curated Shouts playlist and other protest music playlists.

How can there be a lack of protest music in a world like this? If one digs under the most upper layer of mainstream surfaces one can easily find a plethora of music by artists who are sick and tired of the lack of empathy in this world and who use their talents to be a part of a more compassionate world.

Uriya Rosenman is a rapper. He was born on the spot of this planet that now is called Israel.

Sameh Zakout is a rapper. He was born on the spot of this planet that now is called Palestine.

The two spent some time together. They talked. The argued. They became friends. Because in the end, we are all the same. We all poo. We all pee. We all breathe oxygen. And we all just want to live a kind life without nonsense and violence.

This is just one song of so many that are trying to make the world a better place.
