A radio host, a hip-hop activist, a journalist, an event organizer/promoter, a pioneer, and most importantly a Father & a great human being, Hassan Dennaoui aka Big Hass, has been a trailblazer for a burgeoning hip-hop scene in the Middle East.  The host of Saudi Arabia’s 1st hip-hop radio show, “Laish Hip-hop?” on MIX FM, Big Hass continues to break down barriers and elevate the regional hip-hop scene to new heights.

On April 3rd, 2013 in Jeddah, KSA, Big Hass launched the inaugural show for his new event series “The Beat“, a series of events aimed at supporting local artists.  Featuring a lineup of some of Saudi Arabia’s best up and coming artists such as: Abz, Run Junction, Disturb The Balance, and J-Fam, the turnout and positive feedback heralded the show as a great success.

We’d like to say BIG PROPS to Big Hass for taking the initiative and working towards developing our own means of supporting our regional talent.  He is a great ambassador for our scene and we look forward to seeing more great events by “THE BEAT“.  Salute!
