Saudi. English + عربي. Hip-hop. Pop culture.
Unapologetically himself, Saudi hip-hop artist Molham is on a mission to take Arabic rap global. His flow, witty punchlines, pop culture references, and English-Arabic wordplay have made him one of the most exciting talents coming out of the Arab world. A born performer who isn’t afraid to tell it how it is, Molham is the kind of guy your brother turns up to, your sister’s into, and your mom would like to have over for ملوخية (dinner).
He launched his debut EP The Time Is Yesterday in March of 2018. With features from Egyptian starlet Malak El-Husseiny and Minneapolis-native Yusra J, the project served as a window into Molham's feelings about regret, manifestation, and his mood swings. The EP's breakout single Me Against the World hit the top hip-hop charts in the Middle East & North Africa, trending across 7 different countries.
Raised in Ontario, Canada, Molham shifts between two polar identities — one day he’s eating كبسة on the floor of an uncle’s wedding, and the next he’s at a red carpet festival in Santa Monica. Inspired by his Middle Eastern culture and Western upbringing, he bridges both worlds through his songwriting, visuals and collaborations. Growing up, he spent high school Math classes writing rhymes. During his college years, he performed at parties, half-time basketball shows and radio stations.
He graduated with a degree in Finance and Economics from Georgetown University.
