The Narcicyst: Iraqi-Canadian Hip-hop

The Narcicyst

Whether or not you agree with the political content of this cat’s rhymes, there’s no denying the Narcicyst, formerly of the Euphrates crew, is nice on the mic. With roots in Basra, the Narcicyst was born and raised in Dubai and now resides in Montreal. Rhyming in both English and Arabic, his complex, compelling lyrics address some of the most politically charged issues of our time, including the 9/11 attacks, the invasion of Iraq, Islamaphobia and the Arab-Israeli conflict.

To listen to his music, check out his myspace at or check out the track ‘Mon Pays,’ courtesy of shakomakoNet, a fantastic online magazine featuring content by Iraqi youth from around the world.
