This week, Chloé checks out the origins of Israeli hip hop music, asks if there’s anything off-limits in Israel music and unpacks the country’s political music scene, care of three well-known, but wildly different, rappers.

Hip hop might seem all-American but it’s a thing in Israel too; albeit with a sabra twist. In Israel, hip hop is not just about how it sounds. There’s a real emphasis on political, socio-political or socially conscious lyrics that you just don’t find in most other countries.

But that doesn’t make it boring or unpopular. Far from it, as Chloé explains…
