-The Esquire 100 - Qusai
A true regional pioneer, not only was Qusai one of the first Arabic hip-hop artists, but he is the first professional rapper from Saudi Arabia.
Having learnt his craft from a young age in Jeddah, before uprooting to Florida, to establish himself as an important part of Orlando’s musical culture.
He would later return to Saudi to help blaze a trail for independent musicians and artists in the Middle East, embracing the spirit of hip-hop, while capturing the uniqueness of our region’s culture.
He continues to be a fantastic role model for anyone who dreams big, whatever the circumstances.
