Tunisia's own MC Rai and Opium recently collaborated on a new song while MC Rai was visiting the SF Bay area. Not only do both artists trace their origins to north Africa, but Opium and MC Rai have strong family/friendship ties which date back years, as MC Rai has worked with Opium's father, DJ Cheb i Sabbah on projects in the past. The new song is called "Freedom is Free" and is slated to make it to Opium's upcoming album, "Terrorism: 101".
Fusing rhythmic drumming from India, with a strong hip-hop baseline and beautifully haunting vocals from MC Rai, topped with conscious lyrical delivery from Opium, this song has a totally new sound unlike anything you've heard before! This may be the first time World Music and gritty urban hip-hop have crossed paths, stay tuned and keep your ears open for this track!
