Sudan’s King of Rhymes & UK’s Hip Hop Legend Release “Stereoscopic Paramnesia”
From the Middle East to the West, and all the way back again, 3 artists came together to work on a euphoric choon that, with no doubt, will leave a non-erasable footprint in the world of Hip Hop. I’m talking about Sudan’s King of Rhymes Feras “Toofless” Ibrahim, UK’s Hip Hop legend Jehst and Palestine’s beat-master Muqata’a aka Boikutt.
In March 2014, the 3 met at Casa Latina (Dubai) during Jehst’s show with Toofless performing alongside. They instantly clicked and there were talks of collaborating on a track together. A year later, Stereoscopic Paramnesia is ready to be released this Tuesday, the 26th. The best part? It will be downloadable for free and y’all have the chance to listen to a leaked snippet of the track, right here and exclusively on Euphoric Choons.
To me, this track symbolizes the strength of art, music and Hip Hop. Hip Hop has allowed artists of different nationalities, cultures and backgrounds to work together. While bombs are being dropped and wars are being fought, Hip Hop has created a platform for artists all over the world to fight back with words and beats, whether they’re about peace, life lessons or love. And even though the 3 artists live a million miles away from each other, the border barriers were never an issue for them.
Stereoscopic Paramnesia is defined as the distortion of memory wherein fact and fantasy are confused, while giving the illusion of three-dimensional depth vision. The title of the track was conceptualized after both artists (Toofless & Jehst) recorded their verses. With each of the 3 artists describing mind-altering experiences through their individual musical expression, and every verse pertaining to a dimension of its own.
Toofless speaks his mind thru Hip Hop, always been that way since day 1. On this track, he surprises us with shooting a few Arabic bars, addressing the Arabic Hip Hop culture. Starting with his roots – My bloodline gushes from the warriors of Dongula, a Nubian.. – he then takes us on a journey of internal conflicts, consciousness and more. Jehst jumps in the middle with full force, breaking it down to the listeners, comparing between fiction and fact and always keeping it real. This joint wouldn’t be complete without Muqataa’s touch. His experimental production style takes it to a whole other level, leaving your mental awake, alert and on call with horns piercing thru your ear drums. The 3 artists definitely and undoubtedly killed it!
