Arabian Knights: Not Your Prisoner

We here at Urban Asian are keeping tabs on desi talent from all over the globe. Our latest find is Arabian Knightz, a group based in Egypt.

Fresh off the release of “Rebel” (the first song to come out of Egypt since the revolution), Egyptian rap group, Arabian Knightz, are back again with “Not Your Prisoner”, the first release off their debut album “Uknighted State of Arabia“.  In spite of the revolution, Arabian Knightz have vowed to be steadfast in delivering the voice of the Egyptian people to the World.

Not Your Prisoner” features Palestinian/U.K.-based female emcee, Shadia Mansour, and live guitar parts played by platinum West Coast super-producer, Fred Wreck. Fred Wreck, also lends his platinum touch to the mixing duties with the production handled by, DJ Caz.

The video for “Not Your Prisoner” contains eye-opening, real life footage/imagery from the Egyptian revolution.

“Not Your Prisoner” features lyrics in both Arabic and English.  The chorus can be translated into English as:

I want my nation
Free from all oppression

I want my nation
Free from all evil

I want my nation
Free from all injustice

I want my land and the land of the Arabs!
