Egyptian hip hop is a form of hip hop music in Egypt which draws inspiration from both regional and global events.
Since rap and hip hop began to seep into Egypt's urban environment, it has stayed relatively underground. However, in the past few years the trap scene has began to emerge more and more into the spotlight, pushed by a handful of passionate artists, like Abyusif , WEGZ and Marwan Pablo . The scene continues to bloom, widely influenced by the dark and gripping trap sound that is gaining a foothold in the wider Middle Eastern scene.
A new generation of rappers have taken over and trap music has now become one of the country’s most streamed genres, with a slew of artists emerging on the scene every year.
