Egyptian Rapper Mosalem Rides Emotional Rollercoaster in ‘El Maadi’

Another introspective piece laced with clever lyricism from the rapper and radio host.

Embarking on an emotional rollercoaster, Egyptian rapper Mosalem looks at a past romantic relationship in a new music video for ‘Maadi’.


After his success with ‘Daddy’, the rapper is asserting his name as a force in the Egyptian scene, offering a personalised style with a voice familiar to many given his radio hosting at Nile FM, while reinventing his own flows to avoid redundancy in his sound. The rapper remains introspective in the deep dives he seeks to make into his conscious and subconscious mind, while speaking from his heart on the track.


Opting for a minimal beat, ‘El Maadi’ keeps the focus on his lyrics. But the minimalism comes with emotion as he adds a touch of serenity in the chords while reflecting on previous romance with endless questions running through his mind.
