Khat Thaleth, Third Line: Initiative for the Elevation of Public Awareness, is a comprehensive 23-track compilation that covers a wide spectrum of a new wave of conscious Arab rap. Featureing artists from diverse scenes like Palestine, Tunisia, Jordan, Syria, Egypt and Lebanon. The title, “Khat Thaleth”, refers to a third train rail or track, a metaphor of a third way of looking at the polarized political context in the region, as well as a reference to the "hijaz" railroad that used to connect much of the Arab world. Artists team-up, in most cases from different regions and countries, to deliver critical blows to the various political systems in place, sharp social commentary as well as sober realities currently being faced on the ground.
