The much anticipated second installation of our three-part series, In Conversation with Omar Offendum, is finally here!
The supremely talented, Syrian-American rapper, Omar Offendum, hit Sydney’s shores earlier this month, and one lucky Sajjeler, local spoken word artist Sara Saleh, caught up with him for a chat about all things hip hop, identity, culture, and language.
In this part of the interview, Omar discusses audiences, speaking out on the conflict in Syria, and his family’s initial reaction to his decision to take up a career in hip-hop.
Big thanks go to Omar’s sponsors, the Department of Arabic Language and Cultures, Religion, State & Society Network and the US Studies Centre – University of Sydney, for making this interview possible.
Stay tuned for the final installation in our series! If you missed the first interview, here is Part I.
Enjoy, share and let us know your thoughts.
