From the same team who brought you Noisey Blackpool, here’s Noisey Lebanon – a film exploring whether or not hip hop can help young people in the region resist the temptations of militant groups like ISIS.
In the film Noisey host Poet goes to Beirut to meet a collective of local MCs who are making an album that tackles the sensitive subject of radicalisation. Their project involves interviewing psychologists and other experts who work with extremists and using this knowledge in their lyrics.
Their album is a mixture of research and creativity and involves the work of psychologists and social workers who worked with extremists, and ultimately influenced their sound.
