RAqS presents EL RASS


Mazen El Sayed (aka El Rass), is a rapper and music producer from Tripoli, Lebanon. His discography includes 8 albums, the most recent is titled “Hudhud – هُدهُد” , as well as more than 200 singles in collaboration with other music-makers and rappers from the region. El Rass’s work has earned recognition and visibility in the Arab world, specifically for his dense lyrical content, versatility of styles and subject matter, and his personal sonic approach. El Sayed worked as a journalist before devoting his time to music, and has been described as a subversive voice inspired from traditional and contemporary expression, from the spiritual and the worldly.
