We went to YouTube to find the most popular Egyptian rap music on the site. After clicking on the highest “View Count” link, the video above was numero uno. The artists is El Far3i and the name of the track is Egypt Jan 25. We think it’s important since 116th Street is called “Little Africa” and it’s said that 46 languages are spoken on the 5 to 6 block strip.
After listing to the song we clicked on their Facebook page link and copied the info below:
Amman Page is a project set up by young illuminate-minded citizens gathered on the basis of their interest in alternative city through this social website in order to bring together people representing various homelands, places of residence and religious backgrounds,,, all together in Amman Page.
It is a positive project that aims to re-evaluating all suggestions so as to create quality of services and way of life, to the rehabilitation of the mind to become more enlightened, and to encourage free-thinking.
To Create an identifiable content for the city over the Internet, is the target of Amman page. i.e. When you read a question on the page, you find the answer in the feedback of the people- the city residents themselves, and this is called the Building of Shared/ Alternative Content or the Generated Content.
One of the page objectives is to re-design the written, read, visualized identity of the city and suite it up with its population as a whole from the East to the West regardless of their different trends and /or ideas and to fit them all together away from narrow interests, superficiality and shallowness.
Our City Guests would take days to wander through the pictures in Amman Page, which are donated by professional photographers and artists.
Finally, The extent of freedom in the Amman Page is quoted from the wisdom of His Majesty King Abdullah II, the “Freedom Limit is the Sky”
