Join me as we go on an adventurous mission to find rappers in Karachi’s most ‘dangerous’ hood deep in LYARI. Take a seat and enjoy as we submerge into a fascinating world that few will ever see.
► Filmed DECEMBER 2019
Like many of my videos, I completely winged it in search of an authentic video with spontaneous interactions with the locals… and I had no idea if I’d come up with anything worthwhile. But the many cool people from Lyari came together to make this video a reality!
A special thanks to:
Ramzy (The Rapper) – Insta @ramzybaloch_
Abid Shaka (The Entertainer) – FB @AbidShakaFromLiyari
Abdullah (The Boxer) – Insta @a_j_boxer_bhai
Khan (The Real Estate Tycoon) – Insta @bilalkhax
Masood (The Guardian/Organizer) – FB https://bit.ly/2SFytGv
Nasir (The Driver) – FB @nasir.tanoli.33
Shani (The Philosopher)
Faisal (The Spectator) – FB tanoliprincefaisal
And thank you to the many others that came together to make this happen. I know Masood (the man in the white) was doing some work behind the scenes to make sure that making this video was cool with those in charge of the neighborhood. There is a social order and hierarchy in Lyari and things like this don’t just happen without clearance. Masood was like a guardian from the time I got off that rickshaw in the beginning until the end of my time in Lyari. This video probably wouldn’t have happened without him.
