Hip Hop Artists Create Song About Gaza-Israel War (VIDEO)

Hip Hop musicians create a song and video to express how they feel about the current Arab/Israel war.

Two musician lovers of Israel chose to express their views about the current “matzav” in their own language: Hip Hop music.

Kosha Dillz (born Rami Matan Even-Esh) and his musical colleague Diwon have strong ties to Israel. Dillz is the child of Israeli immigrants, and Diwon was born in Israel. Both now in Los Angeles.

The conflict was a topic of conversation and the one thing they and almost everyone else could agree on, is that there should be “No More War.”

Diwon was shown a video of an Israeli soldier in the reserves, Dror Gomel, who loves music and who turned his APC into a musical instrument for a performance he called “No More War.”

When Diwon showed Dillz Gomel’s video, they decided to create a song around the beat, called, not surprisingly, “No More War. (Drums of Peace.)”

The result is a song and video they released Thursday, July 24.

The two will be performing their song in Los Angeles, where both live, just a few hours after this article is published, at a fundraiser for Israel held by StandWithUs and Amit Children.

The lyrics are not what really drives the song, it’s the beat and the refrain that moves it forward. Howerver, there is one stanza  almost entirely in Hebrew, which starts with “Shalom chaverim, this is my rechov, kol ha yeladim.” And then a few lines later it says, “ve ba boker atah rotseh shalom, kol ha kulam – peace no balagon.”

“When you see the video, maybe you can enjoy a twist of war into a peaceful moment. It shows you the heart of a soldier who just wants to play some drums. Music has brought me friends from all different races including Muslims. The world would be better if there was ‘No More War,'” Dillz told The Jewish Press when asked what he wants people to think when they hear the song and watch the video.

So watch the video and see how Israeli-American west coast Hip Hop artists are responding to what’s happening right now in Israel and Gaza.

SPOILER: Although the musicians wish there was no need for war, they are clear about who they think is at fault.
