BOOK RELEASE | The Diatribes of a Dying Tribe By Yassin ‘The Narcicyst’ Alsalman

Pre-Order now this book about Arabic Hip-Hop..Written by my brother The Narcicyst.

Diatribe of a Dying Tribe is about the jumbled reality of North American life. The destructive components of juxtaposing cultures, the birth of immigrant internationality and the resilient art that comes out of struggle and oppression.

It is the story of four young Arab men who joined forces to create their own representative governing meeting. Excentrik, Ragtop, Omar Offendum & the Narcicyst spent two weeks in California and endless hours on a computer crafting the Fear of an Arab Planet; an examination of the heightened anxiety towards Islam, the Oriental gaze towards the Arab face and the ever-growing paranoia of the ‘other’, all over some bangin’ beats to rock to. As a post-analytical view of the making of an album, this book serves as a document on the burgeoning Arab poetry scene, and how the two mother cultures of a migrant society coalesced through a modern hyper-culture called Hip-Hop. From TSA agents to ABC rappers, The Arab Summit were on a mission to be heard… and that is exactly what happened.

With writing by Suheir Hammad, Omar Offendum, Ragtop & Excentrik

Exclusive Interviews with Cilvaringz, Malikah, Eslaam Jawaad, Members of AK, DAM and Soul Purpose.

I have been following Shaq's basketball career ever since he was in LSU. The guy is a legend & a true showman.
So many people dont like his rap - well personally I do feel hes way better than some of the rappers that are exposed now-a-days on the MTV's & all.

This is a cool piece about the relationship between BIGGIE & SHAQ! Take a LooK!
