It was less than a year ago that Palestinian rapper Daboor first hit the scene, dropping his track ‘Liter Black’ on SoundCloud, garnering over 100,000 streams. It was only a matter of time before he teamed up with another of Palestine’s brightest talents—and it just happened.
The rapper just dropped a three-track EP with none-other than the Ramallah-based record label BLTNM; and one of the tracks just became a bonafide Palestinian anthem. Entitled ‘Inn Ann’, the Al Nather produced song sees Daboor alongside BLTNM’s Shabjdeed, released with a Shabmouri-directed video that has quickly amassed over 3.5 million views on YouTube alone.
The track, whose release coincides with violent and deadly attacks by Israeli forces in many parts of Palestine, has unofficially become a contemporary anthem of sorts for Palestinian youth, exemplary of the strength of Palestinians.
In it, Daboor’s verses reinforce the sense of innate power and resistance that come with being Palestinian. “We welcome you, we are the kids of Jerusalem,” says Daboor in a chorus. “We will take it upon ourselves to solve the riddle,” he continues.

It’s only almost two-minutes into the three-minute track that Shabjdeed makes his appearance, emphasizing the message instated by Daboor.
The song has since gone viral on social media, serving as a soundtrack for numerous memes and videos emerging out of Palestine in recent days.
