Swet Shop Boys – Zayn Malik

By Allah do we love what Riz Ahmed and Heems are doing with Swet Shop Boys. This is rap and hip-hop for second-generation American or British Asians (like us), the sort that not only speaks to both cultures but brings in elements of the mother tongue too. So you have lines about bayaan (sermon) giving, talking about tawaaf by the Kaaba, and all sorts of references that are hella intelligent and so catchy that they’ll lodge themselves in your brain quicker than you can say Outlandish or Apache Indian.
