Big Hass: Journey from Blog to FM
Hass Dennaoui (aka Big Hass) is a young Saudi citizen working in the media industry as a Regional Media Sales Manager in a local digital media company. He founded an online radio blog in October 2009.
His radio blog came together as a result of numerous questions in mind about mainstream music, its effect on youth and how it was lacking cause, awareness and intellect. With the Internet being the strongest and main means of communication today, Dennaoui felt that a blog was an ideal vessel to transmit this ideology. His main emphasis was to follow/support the Arabic hip hop movement.
After much determination and hard work, he managed to launch Saudi's first "real" hip hop FM radio show on the newly opened local station MIX-FM. The show, "Laish Hip-Hop?" (meaning "Why Hip-Hop?") airs on a weekly basis and it showcases local and Arab hip hop artists that dont usually get FM/TV exposure.
