Join us THIS Saturday for a unique worldwide screening of the documentary DEEN TIGHT .
DEEN TIGHT takes us on a controversial and very emotional journey through the lives of several Muslim hip hop artists as they search deep within their hearts to find a balance between their faith, culture and identity as Western Muslims. Music, considered taboo practice by many traditional Muslims, has also become one of the most prominent methods for Muslims to share their faith internationally through Muslim Hip Hop - a global phenomenon reaching from the skyscraper laden skies of New York all the way to the deep deserts of Arabia and beyond. It is a subculture that transcends boundaries of language, gender, and religion. DEEN TIGHT brings to the screen the untold story of Western Muslims struggling to find a balance between their culture and their religion.
Produced and directed by Mustafa Davis, the film features interviews and appearances with well known Muslim artists such as HBO Def Poetry Jam Artists AMIR SULAIMAN and LIZA GARZA, Rock Steady's POP MASTER FABEL, MUTAH BEALE formerly NAPOLEON of Tupac's Oulawz, Graffiti artist AEROSOL ARABIC, KUMASI of Black Wallstreet, Remarkable Current's M-TEAM, AFTER HIJRAH, Bay Area Underground Beat Maker FANATIK, Producer DJ BE LIKE MUHAMMAD, RC Lyricist TYSON, Hip Hop Chess Federation founder ADISA BANJOKO, DJ KID DRAGON, DJ RAICHOUS, and others.
Be sure to bring your family and friends along to watch what will surely be a very interesting and thought provoking screening particularly relevant to the society and times we live in. We look forward to seeing you all there!
