Hibuna Ishtruna - Love Us and Buy Us

  • Ihda2 - Dedication (2007)




We wrote this chorus with no message

Just so our people will listen to us

So love us and buy us



Now stand up, and clap your hands

(Sound of hands clapping)

Don’t know why but you always wanna clap

(Sound of hands clapping)


Suhell Nafar :


The minority is controlling the majority

Whatever I see, I write and record it

You listen to it, admire it, and stand up for your rights

Now for the first time I'm here on stage

Without a message just so you can buy this

For the first time now I wanna hear you all say aywa (ya)

We made rap wear a Kafyah   aywa

We took the mic and handed it to Handalah     aywa

We are DAM's soldiers, we came outta pain

Holding our weapons, in one hand it's the pen

In the other hand, it’s the mic

And the anger is our ride

Now - let’s ride




Mahmood Jreri :

I’m starting with an entire dictionary in my head

And a light in my hand to make its words clearer

To show you that there are other topics to discuss

"Habibi ya eni"  (a known Arabic song)

Hey, still not bored of it?

It’s time to improve it a bit

Arabic rap, this is us

So music is the war, our album is the shield

The tongue is our sword and the beat is our horse

And if you are our goal then call me "il Hadaf"

(a known cartoon TV program-means the soccer player)

And if you get hit don't call an ambulance

‘Cause our hit is like electricity, come to bring you back to life

"Who was your influence?" –I'll tell you who

I'm like Sinbad, I’ll reach every land

With my flying carpet the mic, I'll open every secret door

"How do you know the password?" - well, I grew up on Ali Baba

And using foreign tradition I'm bringing us back to our tradition


(chorus + bridge)


Tamer Nafar :

Hush hush, wassup with our art here?

The answer is too many songs but not enough messages

All your messages sow bullshit in our minds

And instead of pushing it away from us, we shake with its sounds

Wanna shake?! Go ahead and shake your head to expel your thoughts

But if you only shake your ass all you'll do is expel shit

Ohhh is it forbidden to say that? I can't say it?

You can’t say "you can’t" in hip hop music, it’s free, now check it out

You made so many love songs

That love itself is sick of them

So we came and reminded you

That we should love ourselves

You can accept us, you can reject us

And if you decide not to love or buy us

It's not a big deal; we'll add girls to our video clip

Then sit, wait, and sell it easily
