I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing for Muslims in America, but the R&B singer T-Pain is supposedly a Muslim. His real name Faheem Najm. His parents are also Muslims according to Imam Wikipedia. Also confirmed by one of my good friends who’s a hip hop head and a good Muslim brother, Afnanymous.
T-Pain is on the Konvict music label who happens to be run by our dear brother Akon, who’s also Muslim. May Allah (swt) guide these brothers and forgive them. Ameen.
Well all I can say is, he should do a remix, “I’m in love with a nikabiiii” & “Ima buy you a tasbihhh” ahaha
T-Pain, like rappers Busta Rhymes and Lupe Fiasco, is also a Muslim. What is it like being a Muslim in America?
“It’s like being any other person,” he says. “I’m still a person, a human being, no matter what religion I am.”
But has the war on terror changed perceptions about Muslim faith?
“People don’t even know,” T-Pain says. “Me, Busta Rhymes, Lupe Fiasco – they don’t even know we are Muslim. People think a Muslim has to have a turban or a big beard. It’s stupid.”
