Description

Rayess Bek is one of the founders of Rap and Hip Hop in Arabic. He adapted Rap music to his background and created his own sound and style. His lyrics - always polished, sharp and committed - speak about Lebanon, its crisis, its war, its youth and disillusionment with politics by the new generation.

Rayess Bek, with his band Aks’ser, released two albums “Ahla Bi Chabeb” in 2000 and “Khartouch” in 2002. In 2003, Rayess Bek released his first solo album ‘A’am behkeh bil sokout’ as independent and went on tour throughout the Middle-East and Europe. In 2004, the band Aks’ser got signed to EMI and released their third album Aks’ser in 2005.

Rayess Bek was featured in a 2007 PBS documentary “Dissonance and Harmony” for the series “America at a Crossroad”. The film captures the process of Wael’s collaboration with Nile Rogers, Rza from the Wu-Tang Clan and Shavo from System of the Down as well as Rayess’ live performance at the Roxy.
