Mohamed Achgaf, also known as Murasel, clearly sees his music as a form of liberation and conveyance of a sentiment imbued with street experiences. He knows immigration issues closely, and is deeply steeped in Moroccan, French and Spanish rap. The fact is that good rap has no prefixed language, but rather a lyricism through which it beautifully depicts reality. Musarel raps both in Arabic and Spanish, and even sometimes in French.
Rafael Fonollá, a. k. a. Fono Scout, started out in rap by freestyling in parks, just like any other MC. He focused more deeply on writing during his period with the group Masacre Scuad. He released his first serious solo work in 2009, which was produced by Baster and included international guest appearances like Temperamento, conveying a thoroughly underground message.
