Touffar (Lebanese Hip Hop from Baalbak)

Loving this right here.

Angry Arab had this to say about the ‘Touffar Movement’:

There is a movement that needs to be covered more in the press. It is the Tuffar movement in the Ba`albak region. Some overage of the movement suffers from prejudices and from stereotypes about them as criminals and drug dealers. Even an article in Al-Akhbar a few months ago did not deviate from that norm. Tafar is being very poor, or penniless. Tuffar characterizes a movement associated with the Ja`far clan in Ba`albak and champions the poor and neglected in the region. It is Shi`ite but not with Hizbullah and not with the Amal movement, the two Shi`ite political groupings in the region. Many in Lebanon blame (often unfairly) the car theft and drug dealings on Tuffar. Tuffar is a lawless movement that champions rebellion against the government, and is more political than often assumes.
