FredWreck has just launched his label imprint Magnum Opus Music. The first released from the famed West Coast production veteran is Arabian Knightz, the Hip-Hop trio from Cairo, Egypt. The album, entitled “Uknighted States of Arabia“, is a mix of Hip-Hop beats with traditional Egyptian “shaaby” music and instruments.
The album features production by FredWreck and his new production team Club Wreckers from Holland, along with 4th Disciple and others. Arabian Knightz have been considered the Public Enemy or NWA of Egypt. Their music has been the theme for the Egyptian Revolution, and as active participants in the events in Tahrir Square’s revolution, the trio’s album has been long over due.
Hoping for a better future after the revolution, AK’s album was rejected by the Egyptian government. censorship bureau and was not given the permissions allowed to be released. So they have released it in Egypt independently and have taken to the “out of the trunk” approach, by selling it to venders and shops themselves illegally.
Thanks to the production mastery of FredWreck and the ambition to have they’re message heard, Arabian Knightz have arrived. The album is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and all digital retailers. Check out a preview track off the album belo called “Sisters“, which features both English and Arabic rapping:
