BIOGRAPHYArabian Knightz, the premier hip hop group from the land of the Nile River, have not only established themselves as the lyricists with the sharpest swords in their land, but they also created the most consistently original sound of any Egyptian crew to pick up the mic, a voice for rebellion, strength and hope for the youth of the Middle East. During the revolution Arabian Knightz released two singles, “Rebel” and “Not Your Prisoner”, anthems of resistance, gaining worldwide attention and major media coverage for their powerful lyrics against a wicked system. Arabian Knightz banded in 2006 through the cipher, hip hop’s natural way of choosing like mindsets on the mic. Rush, Sphinx and E-Money were ahead of their peers, adapting an authentic Arab perspective to the art dominated by Western voices, mixing English and Arabic raps. After hitting the studio for successful underground tracks, AK enlisted super-producer Fredwreck (Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Tha Dogg Pound). “Fokkak”, the single from this studio session, was an instant hit and projected them to the top ten of the singles charts. Arab League Records was formed amidst a growing fanbase and numerous collaborations with other Arab hip hop artists, the first international Arab hip hop record label. Desert Saga Volume 1 mixtape was the debut release, led by the “The One”, featuring Egypt’s MC Amin. Arabian Knightz have recorded their debut album, Uknighted State of Arabia, a masterpiece for Arab hip hop years in the making, featuring instrumentals dominated by traditional percussions and players.
