'Straight Outta Syria': Listen to the rhymes of three refugee rapping brothers

Three talented Syrian young brothers, Samir, Abdulrahman, and Mohammed, who arrived in Lebanon as refugees four years ago, are the stars of "Straight Outta Syria", a video published in January by global children's charity, Theirworld.

The video features the three brothers showing off their rap skills. They rap in Arabic about the tough times they had to endure while leaving Syria and life as refugees in Lebanon.

The video is part of Theirworld's campaign #UpForSchool, which aims to show the importance of going to school and to enroll 1 million refugee children into formal education for free in Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan by the end of this year.

"When I grow up, I would like to write humourous songs. I don't like to write about misery. I like people to be happy and laugh. I like joy," says Abdulrahman in the video.
