Ibrahim Ghunaim, or MC Gaza as he likes to be called, raps to a different beat in an Islamist-ruled Palestinian enclave rocked by internal conflict and three wars with Israel over the past decade.Rappers in Gaza did not have an easy start, and their first performance in 2005 – to celebrate Israel's withdrawal of troops and settlers – did not go down well.Many local hip-hop performers have either migrated or stopped performing because they cannot find sponsorship, Ghunaim noted, adding that he was also looking to leave, though not before he makes his mark at home.He is working on a new album that he says will be his final one in Gaza.
