An interview with Yas, a rapper from the Persian underground Hip-hop scene of Tehran

Submitted by Nassir Mashkouri on Mon, 10/29/2007 - 03:08.

Z.Z: Before starting this interview, please tell us a little bit about yourself.

Yas: First of all I would say hi to all the ZirZamin’s readers. My name is Yasser. I am 25 years old. It has been 5 years since I started rapping as "Yas". The first track I made was only for getting permission (from the "Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance" for the rap song) and was about "Bam" earthquake. The earthquake had a very deep effect on me and made me write the song. This was the start of my work. But the works that made me known are: "Break the CD", "My identity", "We must be able" and "In the hope for Iran".

Is Persian Hip-hop Dying?

Persian hip-hop (more broadly known as Persian rap or Rap-e Farsi) started nearly a decade ago. It brought to light and made popular some of the most interesting questions and subjects that were not heard in any other Iranian music genre before. New artists such as Yas, Ghogha, Hichkas and Shahram Najafi brought to light topics familiar to most Iranians, topics no one dared sing about earlier. Persian rap built a platform for expressing injustice, wrongdoings and negative aspects of a culture.

زیرزمین: بد نیست قبل از آغاز این گفتگو برای آشنائی آن دسته از خوانندگان گاهنامۀ زیرزمین که کمتر در بارۀ شما می دانند، کمی از خودتان و تاریخچۀ هنری خود در صحنۀ رپ فارسی برای ما بگوئید.


یاس: سلام می کنم به همۀ خوانندگان گاهنامۀ زیرزمین. من «یاسر» هستم. 25 سال دارم. مدت 5 سال است که در این سبک به اسم «یاس» فعالیت می کنم. اولین آهنگی که داشتم فقط هدفم گرفتن مجوز بود، از زلزلۀ بم شروع شد. زلزلۀ بم خیلی روی من تاَثیر گذاشت و باعث شد که این آهنگ رپ را بخوانم. این شروع کار من بود. ولی کارهائی که باعث شد با آنها شناخته بشوم «CD رو بشکن، هویت من، باید بتونیم و به امید ایران بود.
