Brownbook & Hypebeast: The Narcicyst
At the end of 2010, Hypebeast undertook an extensive video project with Dubai-based magazine Brownbook. Through a series of short videos, we hoped to document and tell the story of a select few creatives who are helping develop the creativity landscapes of both the Middle East and Northern Africa. Too often, it seems as though these cultures has been viewed through only one particular lens as it offers so much more than what many have been subjected to.
Based in Montreal but with strong ties to Dubai and the Middle East, The Narcicyst combines lyrical flow with an educated meaning. Hip-hop has become a veritable tool of communication and empowerment for The Narcicyst as he sees few equals in the prevalent topics that surround the community.
