Conversation: Syrian-American Rapper Omar Offendum

Born in Saudi Arabia to Syrian parents and raised in America, hip-hop artist Omar Offendum uses his lyrical talents to bridge his Middle Eastern roots to his Western upbringing. That Offendum is gaining fans during the Arab Spring is no coincidence. His songs, often political, resonate with Arab youths, many of whom have embraced one of America’s most popular forms of protest music: hip-hop.
