The Narcicyst is an Iraqi MC/Media Master born in the UAE, raised in Canada and continually questioned by the powers that be, his musical career was spawned through the collaborative work of the Euphrates family; A growing collective of Muslim visual artists, musicians, painters, filmographers and photographers. Releasing two albums with Euphrates, “A Bend in the River” and “Stereotypes Incorporated” respectively, the crew garnered worldwide attention from Time Magazine to publications out of
the Middle East and Europe. A graduate in Political science and Communication Studies, Narcy went on to get a Masters degree in Media Studies focusing on the identity politics in Hip-Hop poetics, specifically encountering and dissecting the Arab-American experience through a thesis project entitled “Fear of An Arab Planet”. With a book being released under the same title, and a self-titled album, The Narcicyst is sure to make you see yourself through the proverbial mirror that is the current state of the world.
