Ayman Mghames, is part of the first rap group from Gaza called Palestinian Rappers. He believes that Gaza's troubles limit Gaza's rappers in the sense that no real attention is given to such art under the conditions Gaza is put through. Yet at the same time, he adds, Gaza "Much like the Bronx, where rap was born -- is an ideal place for Hip Hop as it provides countless topics and experiences that can be voiced in rhymes as part of what they see as non-violent resistance against the siege and occupation."
