One of Egypt's most popular rap groups embodies the spirit that recently fueled revolutionary youth in Egypt.

The group's lead rapper decided against leaving the country for a professional career so he could pursue his art, and his passion for reaching Egypt's youth through hip-hop.

The Arabian Knightz were among the first groups to release music about the revolution. The group filmed a video for their track "Eid Fi Eid/Hand In Hand" in the early days of the uprisings.

I had a chance to catch up with The Arabian Knightz. Watch the video below to see what I discovered first hand.
