Our story begins with a group of Moroccan Hip Hop artists who share a single dream: to rock a professional concert for a hometown crowd.

With the help of the American filmmaker, they appeal to the American Embassy for funding and begin the journey that will leave to the “I Love Hip Hop in Morocco’ festival.
