The Last Zionist Rapper?
August 14, 2015 9:29 am
In episode 4 of Hip Hop in the Holy Land, Mike travels to the Tel Aviv compound of mythical rapper Subliminal, the first to rap in Hebrew and achieve big commercial success with it, and whose political views still divide rap fans. Mike also drops in to watch popular rap radio show Jigga Juice being recorded and meets a bunch of young Israeli rappers.
Clearly you can’t do a series on hip hop in Israel without talking to Subliminal. His heyday as a rapper was over a decade ago, but he and his fellow rappers put hip hop on the map in Israel.
