Gregory Broussard aka Egyptian Lover, is an American musician, vocalist, producer and DJ, and was a part of the L.A. dance music and rap scene in the early 1980s.

“Egyptian Lover is a legend in certain circles but a mystery to most – an artist who was in deep with most of the West Coast hip-hop scene before the gangsta sound came along. Born Greg Broussard, Egyptian Lover was a rapper, DJ, and producer who was hugely influenced by the New York electro scene, as well as by the electro-funk of Zapp. This was flat-out party music: not afraid to be a little corny, and dynamite on the dancefloor. Although he began associating with Uncle Jamm’s Army and Radio Crew, it was as a solo artist that he made his impact. “Egypt, Egypt” was an LA anthem in 1984, and “On the Nile” was one of the first hip-hop albums to come out of the left coast. Even after gangsta rap swept away all that before it, his early works have remained staples of electro sets across the world.”

Stones Throw re-released Egyptian Lover’s definitive single “Egypt, Egypt” as a three-sided “pyramid record,” and issued Egpytian Lover’s anthology 1983-1988 in 2016.
