    Default Outlandish - Amazing Group



    Wuttup Corp, just wanna introduce yall to some good artists that yall may have never heard of. Hopefully our European ppl in the forums have. Outlandish is a hip-hop group from Denmark and i'm really feeling their music. A large part of the beauty of their music is the combination of all their cultures that they include in thier songs, the group was formed in 97', they got Isam Bachiri from Morocco, Waqas Ali Qadri from Pakistan, and Lenny Martinez from Honduras. Waqas and Isam are Muslims, and Lenny is catholic. This isn't religious music at all, just letting yall know that. They made several albums and all of em are dope, i just love how they speak the truth in their lyrics and their dope beats. Outlandish are influenced by traditional Arabic and Indian music with Cuban and Latin-American rhythms which may sound wierd at first but its really nice. Most of their music is english so dont worry you'll be able to understand most of it lol. I also wanna mention that Isam Bachiri is the vocalist in all of their just plain singing songs. They have a very few amount of those songs, I still listen to those songs too (which they have few of) even though they dont rap in those songs, the lyrics are inspiring and send a good message.

    You can find most of their videos on youtube, here are some links:

    Outlandish - "Guantanamo" <--- Very first video
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DngCw53zD9o

    Outlandish - "Look Into My Eyes"
    Description: The song's lyrics are based on a poem expressing the plight of those suffering from America's foreign policy with regards to Israel and Palestine.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3P12aqVeZkQ

    Outlandish - "Aicha"
    <-- Very famous song
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8krO7Q3vSys

    Outlandish - "Walou" <-- One of my Fav's
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9ULmFcuWBo

    Outlandish - "Kom Igen"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R28jW-q8PFw

    ^^^This song right here, i really love the first verse, Isam spits the truth.

    Heres the first verse:
    [Isam Bachiri]
    Try to learn every single Ayat
    So my soul in front of Allah, gon' be smelling good
    To that moment I be definitely making my move
    In it for the money? Nah man, I'm in it for the truth
    Ain't about any gold or the ice
    Sneaks and close is just part of the hype
    MTV sucks big time
    Cribs and bling - get a real life

    But wow -- take a minute or 2
    Why we spending so much money man that we don't have boo
    Every tiny detail, we gotta have kid!
    Every kind of device to make us look rich
    Hollywood, magazines, videos
    Escaping anything & anyone away we go
    In it sickening enough that we don't really care
    In it sickening of that we don't wanna share
    Wish for my brother what a wish for my self
    Try to love the world less, put my ego to rest
    "get rich or die tryin'" who ever said it was poor
    don't they ever gon' learn from the farao in gold

    _________________________________________

    Well yeah i hope yall bothered to read what i said, cause these are truly good artists, i put up threads like this to start something a lil different and introduce yall to good artists than having four 50 Cent threads up a day. Oh yeah im not a European thats trying to put their favorite Euro Rap Group on the map, im from Virginia and one of my boys first showed me Outlandish, then i couldnt let go of their music. So yeah, hope yall check it out and like it.

    I'm from Denmark, I often see these guys at the street, they seem real cool. I don't usually listen to them that much, but I gotta admit that I used to listen alot to Guantanamo.. But they got mad respect over here, especially because they try to make peace between the danes and the immigrants (we have a quite bad immigration-system(?) over here).. But yeah no doubt, hope people wont sleep, cause they are truly great artists...

    yeah man they deserve the respect, they're amazing artists. I actually gave the group a chance after being dissapointed hearing all the terrible commercial hip hop we got here in America. Im starting to agree with the intellectuals that say that the commercial hiphop out these days degrades women, and is truly hurting the image of the black race. Rockin the diamonds, cars, showing off, this aint right. Outlandish dont do any of that. Its all about positive rap when it comes to them. Check em out yall... give em a chance

    I bought the album when they came out based on the strengh of guantanamo, but when I heard it I thought it was weak, it was more on some R&b shit.
    I liked the idea of this multicultural group but sorry, it was wack.

    this group is a mix of everything. So of course to people that listen hardcore hip-hop music with ill lyrics and shit, yeah its gonna be weak. Overall they are amazing, combination of a lot of genres into one that gives out positive and inspirational messages. The most used genre thats put in to the combination is Hip hop, which is why i posted this thread in the "Hip-Hop Spot"

    Actually I don't just listen to hardcore hip hop, I do appreciate different sounds but Outlandish have to many creative flaws in their album to fully hold together, besides I already know of a group that has everything you have stated, blending styles but remaining true to hip hop, the only thing is that they rhyme in spanish and sometimes a little bit of french also. That group is called Orishas, check them out and you will know what im talking about.
