BIO Despite not having a formal recording contract, DAM's 2001 single "Meen Erhabe?"—"Who's the Terrorist?"—was downloaded more than a million times from its web site. It is a controversial song regarding the Al-Aqsa Intifada and what the group perceived as Israel's barbaric methods of dealing with it.
In 2004 DAM released a single called "Born Here" in Arabic and Hebrew. The song was released with a videoclip directed by Juliano Mer-Khamis and produced by the mixed cities in Israel organization Shatil.
DAM completed its first album, Dedication, in 2006 and is featured in the documentary film Slingshot Hip Hop, directed by Jackie Salloum, about the emerging Palestinian hip hop scene.
DAM initially performed in Israel and the Palestinian Territories, winning many fans among both Palestinians and Israelis. Since then, DAM's music gained the attention of European and American audiences, and the group performed in the United States, England, Germany, Italy, and several other countries, making four European tours.
The group collaborated with Israeli rock band Shotei Hanevuah on the song "Generations Demand Peace." They appeared on Al Jazeera's program From Washington on June 4, 2007, during a report on Arabic hip hop.
The group's lyrics often deal with the frustration at the feeling of being second-class citizens in Israel and other issues familiar to hip hop fans around the world, including drug-related violence. The group's live performances feature images of Israeli soldiers clashing with stone-throwing Palestinians.
