ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Original Rap On Arabic Rhythms!

The single "Grandpa Lil" is an original from the forthcoming album "Red Lebanon". The track is based on the life of the lebanese legendary Zajal Poet " Khalil Roukoz ". Check it out www.biglil.com!

Khalil (Biglil) Roukoz Jr (born October,1977 B-Root ,Lebanon) rapper/writer/beat maker, audio engineer creates various conceptual rap artworks , since mid-90's Biglil approaches a wide scale of multi-layered ways of fusing middle eastern sounds ,incorporating belly dance rhythms percussions along with hip hop elements to form his unique sound, voice and a natural smooth delivery, whether stories to tell or witty metaphors to formulate, well balanced across the spectrum guaranteed to give rap world refreshing sounds. Some of his known original works tracks such as " Peasant to a Sultan" , "Smoking dat Sheesh" , "GrandPa Lil" " Cigarette Rime" along with a wide list of old to new school classics and mix tapes.

Zajal (Arabic: زجل) is a traditional form of oral strophic poetry declaimed in a colloquial dialect (most notably in one of the many dialects of Arabic) with ancient roots in a number of Mediterranean cultures. Zajal's origins may be ancient but it can be traced back to at least the 12th century. It is most alive in Lebanon today, and the Maghreb and particularly Algeria, and in the Levant, especially in Lebanon and Palestine where professional zajal practitioners can attain high levels of recognition and popularity. Zajal is semi-improvised and semi-sung and is often performed in the format of a debate between zajjalin (poets who improvise the zajal). It is usually accompanied by percussive musical instruments (with the occasional wind instrument, e.g. the ney) and a chorus of men (and more recently, women) who sing parts of the verse.

Lyrix:

Grandpa Lil use to improvise
poetry philosophized to classics
taught himself how read or write
metaphors symbolizin magic

Born in 20's, passed in 60
messed around wit sexy bellydancers
one thing opponenets n many know
for every objection he had an answer

Sang too much
Drank too much
lived it up ,didn't bank too much

Had a lotta women
due to a smooth touch
seduca, but medusa

Tipsy gipsy chicks who sip whiski
risky tryin to trick he
poetry andaloosa

split da see like moussa
see him boozed up
wen it come to hittin tails
he be up like a roosta


Chorus x 2

Shake ya hips from side to side
n Lil be puffing smoky Chalice
set da party off n it's on all night
welcome to Sultans Palace

Verse 2:

Granpops was da great
philosopher a socra-tees
made lots gees
became so popular

Spent it all on da bottles of vodka
shots of sambuka
hash in hookah

Horseraces
court cases
travelled to Africa
n back to forein places

Tore stages
seen from binoculars
like da paprazzis
watchin from opera

Spittin dat real
from broot to fakara
frontin on leel
ur just a hand of bakara

Spittin dat real
from broot to saqara
gettin dat feel
hits from tabala

No Rest
More Stress
oponents constatly test
illa than the rest

Concepts
Unheard Unseen
n every other poem
he wrote about Jospehine


Chorus x 2

Shake ya hips from side to side
n Lil be puffing smoky Chalice
set da party off n it's on all night
welcome to Sultans Palace


Habibi Dis
Habibi Dat
u cee most of his friends
were jus sneaky cats

Bunch of fonies
duplicatin sound
50 years
but he still world renouned

50 years
still lockin dis down
he's not here
hear his voice around

50 years
he still holds a crown
shed tears
if u swim in it u drown

On n on
to da red lebanon
sip arak
till 5 in da morn

Make em clap
vibe all night long
luv what da cash do
put it on his statue

3 sons
3 guns
raised by mrs janet
n 3 nuns

Reruns see dis town dont sleep
Beep Beep Beep
on this Roukoz Street


Chorus x 2

Shake ya hips from side to side
n Lil be puffing smoky Chalice
set da party off n it's on all night
welcome to Sultans Palace
