Lebanese hip hop[1] is a pioneering movement in Arabic hip hop as Lebanese youth were among the first to be affected by hip hop culture.[2][3][4][5][6][7] Arabic hip hop has received Western media attention, but most Lebanese rappers think that there is still a lack of local interest in their music.[8][9]
