With roots from both Palestine and Lebanon, Unge Beirut takes the melodic sound of the Middle East and mixes it with Western hip hop. This has made him both one of Norwegian rap's most interesting and ambitious voices, but also a front figure for the southern Norwegian rap community.

Young Beirut, or Elias Tchaba as his real name is, was nominated for a Spellemann award for his debut album "Hevnen Er Søt, Men Jeg Tilgir Deg" in 2018. In 2019, he released the hit song "Lowkey/Highkey" and several singles and releases, including "Himmelen Remix", which premiered on the NRK P3 program "HAIK". His second album "Du Ødela Det Eneste Nydelige" (D.Ø.D.E.N) was released in 2021, followed by the short film "Gutten Som Levde Evig", made in connection with the album.

Now the young rapper with hard-hitting lyrics and a soft southern dialect is out with a new album and a message of both seriousness and hope.
