Meet the Syrian refugee rapper

Nineteen-year-old Tammam fled his home in Syria's Hama province with his family earlier this year.

They have been sleeping in tents in Piraeus port in Athens, but hope to reach Germany to be reunited with Tammam's brother.

More borders are being sealed off to migrants and refugees, but Tammam remains hopeful that they will reach their destination.

He told BBC News he had been using hip hop as a way to document his experience.
