I propose to start every new week with a song that takes us somewhere in the world.
This week, my Monday morning playlist takes us as far as the Islamic State with Allahomma Amin by Emino.
Emino is a Tunisian rapper who recently left his country to supposedly join the Islamic State and conduct the jihad in Syria, or maybe Iraq.
How did this Tunisian rapper exchange the golden chains, cannabis joints and sexy girls for an alcohol-free life made of prayers and murders?
Although we don’t really know what happened and why, it seems that Emino’s resentment against the Tunisian society reached a point of non return during his stay in jail two years ago, where he was bullied despite being “just a little cannabis consumer”. It seems that since then, he had been turning to religion, hence my choice of this song whose title means something like ‘Dear Lord’.
