Medusa is a young MC out of Tunis (Tunisia) and her recent track “Neheb N3ch Hayati” was produced by one other than Olof Dreijer of The Knife!
Medusa describes her album “Sawtuha” (Arabic for “her voice”), as a:

vital encouraging testament of rebellion against the repression of democratic rights, gender inequality, and lack of inclusion. The music is an organic mixture of traditional Arabic music, regional influences and various forms of contemporary Western musical genres. A mixture that may sound contradicting at first but makes total sense once you listen to the music.

Have a listen to the track below, and the album is available for purchase here!

!! OMG, poor things are just petrified!: Deadly lake turns all that touches it to stone !!

This is some Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe/Legend Of Zelda kind of shit! A lake over in Tanzania has been giving any animal that touches it a bad case of the Medusas. Apparently it’s due to its constant pH of 9 to 10.5 which preserves the animals for all of eternity.
(This is the same reaction my system had when I found out that the Real Housewives Of Vancouver wouldn’t be back for a third season.) Check out the rest of the photos by photographer Nick Brandt after the jump!
