He is our finest Zionist musical ambassador. Rapper Ya'akov "Kobi" Shimoni, generally known by his stage name Subliminal, has already been on countless tours sponsored by the Foreign Ministry, and has always been willing to land a helping hand in generating some positive PR for Israel.
Now the rapper embarks on his largest US tour to date, sponsored by Taglit Birthright Israel, which seeks to strengthen the bonds between Jewish American youths and the State of Israel.
Subliminal will be joined on the aptly named “Israelity Tour” by fellow TACT recording artists The Shadow Yoav Eliasi, Itzik Shamly, SHI 360, BooSkills, and Sivan. The artists have already flown to the US Tuesday night.
The visiting Israeli rappers will be touring throughout the US, visiting several university campuses where they will meet Jewish students and youths. They will perform at the Nectar Lounge Seattle, Ruby Skye in San Francisco, the San Diego House of Blues, and –since no US trip is complete without Vegas—the Tao in Las Vegas.
