Shakshukah? Booyakasha!

shakshouka.jpglp.gif

The folks over at Jewlicious have posted an awesome Israeli rap video that shows how Jewish rap differs culturally from its LA or NYC-based counterparts. Instead of bouncing low-riders or tons of bling, the video revolves around food – namely the preparation of the classic sephardic tomato and egg dish, shakshouka. The song does have some MTV-esque elements (bikini-clad dancers and an occasional English expletive) that might make this video slightly NSFW, but the skills on display (both musical and culinary) by the artist BooSkills definitely make this single worth a look.

    Booskills is my man and thanks for spreading love, but I gotta say your characterization of American hip-hop as no more than “bouncing low-riders or tons of bling” is beyond ignorant.

    I’m perfectly aware that American hip-hop is not even one homogeneous cultural entity, much less one that consists entirely of low-riders or bling. I apologize if my attempt to humorously compare the Israeli/Jewish & American musical styles by referencing several common visual tropes fell flat. No disrespect meant to either culture, both of which I’m a fan of, too.

    Plenty of low-riders and bling (and American hip-hop influences) in the TACT Family, I can tell you…it just has a distinctly Jewish/Israeli edge.

    Glad you liked it, and Booskills is a really fun and dynamic personality, even more than this video portrayed– looking forward to hearing more from him in the future.
