Alj reports “A growing number of rap artists are leaving the bad boy hip hop lifestyle for a more spiritual one. The Canadian Dawah Association says that an increasing number of rappers this year have embraced Islam or acknowledged they had in the past. Amir Junaid Muhadith, better known for his stage name, Loon, talks to Al Jazeera about his spiritual journey. “

First Mase became a born again Christian and now his protege from Mase’s Harlem World group [view] and former Bad Boy artist Loon has become a Muslim complete with a full beard, kufi and Islamic garb. I can respect it but wouldn’t it be funny if Cam’ron followed this up and became a Mormon or some shit? And speaking of Cam, being that Jim Jones is the self proclaimed kufi smacker and him and Loon have exchanged words [view] I think that term will take on a whole new meaning. – ICE
