Let's not end this discussion without a nod to Luck-One (aka Hanif Collins).
Rap cred: A lyrically-gifted MC (likened to a "young Nas") who has taken the rap community by storm with his acclaimed short-EP 'Beautiful Music' and the highly anticipated upcoming release of 'True Theory' slated to drop in 2011.
Muslim cred: Raised in an orthodox Islamic home from birth. Served time. Hard on his deen.
