Whats up Yasemin- Hanah I was just reading what you wrote about ISLAM and hip hop and I have to agree with you . I remember Islam coming in the music since Eric B. and Rakim first started, Big Daddy Kane all of them were muslims of 5 percenters (The nation of Gods & Earths). Its presence in the hip hop world was so powerful that even non muslims in NYC stopped eating pork. My man KRS-1 did'nt even eat meat he was a vegeterian, There was a time when it was hip to be rightgeous believe it or not.
Groups like KMD Poor Rightgeous Teachers and Tragedy the Intelligent Hoodlum Lakim Shabazz and Queen Latifah were all muslims. At the time anything else would of been uncivilized. I never fully converted to Islam but it has added to and improved my life greatly. I found a role model in Malcolm X, a messenger in Elijah Muhammed, and today we have Farrakhan. Peace to the Father Clarence 13X and Noble Drew Ali.

What ISLAM is doing for HIP-HOP Up to 8 million Muslims live in the United States of America, and according to statistics 2.5 million of them are 'African-American'.
Not coincendentally, Islam-Influenced rap (EX: 'Arab Money by Busta Rhymes & 'Bombs Over Bagdhad by Outkast) are putting music albums in the billions department when it comes to sales.
From Wu-Tang Clan--to Kanye West & Public Enemy, many African-American rappers are embracing (and have embraced) Islam and offer it to mainstream 'urban' (hood) audiences as an alternative to gansta rap. Nowadays, even Young Jeezy is getting political--travel truly does broaden the mind--for about 3 years ago he was on 'Trap Music'....
Spreading the word of Islam through music has also elevated the religion's "cool factor" (for religion is still 'man-made'; God is of the spirit); in the eyes of many young rap fans and aspiring music artist and musicians.
Much of religion's growing influence among rap artists can be attributed to The Nation Of Islam, a "controversial" branch in the U.S. dedicated to BLACK EMPOWERMENT. Other Muslim groups have found new converts in numerous celebrities in the last few decades, including rapper Ice Cube, sportscaster Ahmad Rashaad (Phylicia Rashaad of the Cosby Show husband) and boxer Mike Tyson.
*The right merchant is one who has the just average of faculties we call common sense; a man of a strong affinity for facts, who makes up his decision on what he has seen. He is thoroughly persuaded of the truths of arithmetic. There is always a reason, in the man, for his good or bad fortune in making money. Men talk as if there were some magic about this. He knows that all goes on the old road, pound for pound, cent for cent -- for every effect a perfect cause -- and that good luck is another name for tenacity of purpose.

As an Entrepreneur--'Woman of Business- Mother--& Designer--my life revolves around my craft and my passion.
I want to give a salute to all of the individuals on this site that are pursuing their dreams through their art and God given talent(s)--whether it be from modeling--freestyling--hustlin'--to just using your "gift of gab"--do what you do; BUT BE THE BEST AT IT! Never settle for mediocricy. Society will fool you into thinking that your dreams aren't real, and that the only way to live them is through a set script--or some 'reality tv -like' appearance and quality of life. But its not true.
I like so many dreamers recognize that I am made in the image of a 'ultimate perfection'--and can achieve all which motivates me. I am simply creating my own path and making a life for myself--and not one that is devised from a hierarchy.
I live my like knowing that 'The Truth has the authority; Authority does not hold the truth.
And so; I live, I pray, I eat, I alter; I changel I help: I learn--and I grow.
So Until Next Time Ya'll--
Not only should you "Live Life To The Best of Your Ability"--but make yourself the best that ever done it.
It was brought to my attention that my profile photo that I had posted was very inappropriate for the title that I hold in the 'Music Industry'---so in respect of my "friends"--close supporters--and business associate's--I offer a sincere apology with hopes that I have yet to offend any one....& the photo has been altered.
* The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true -- action precedes motivation. You have to ''prime the pump'' and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day.

There are certain situations in life that will make you want to act a damn fool--just literally lose your mind and beg for "plea of insanity"...
So, I use the art of making and creating deals--being flexible while negotiating--and being diplomatic instead of emotional. 'Business' is such an in depth field that one can get lost if not willing to totally sacrifice all that is made of themselves in order to get the best possible results--so me, I put my life on the line--what do you all bring to the table?
Until Next Time--
*Industry is the soul of business and the keystone of prosperity.
