Islam and hip hop mix quite well actually:

MidNight Shems – Jbal Atlas mp3

Sister Fa – Selebou Yoon mp3

This is a sample of the compilation Many Lessons released by Piranha. As much as we have come to dread religion for fear of not being in that puritan extreme, other cultures do manage to link the unlinkable. These are wild sounds of proclamation and prosternation – such is the West African way of hip hop.
