:D Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest

 

Salaam,

 

There are a lot of muslim rappers out there but most aren't as popular as Mos Def or Lupe Fiasco. Now there are a lot of rappers that are 5%ers or those that have studied Islam and incorporate that knowledge in their rhymes, but they aren't muslims while some may think they are.

 

Also I'd like to add that due to one of the songs on Ghostface's last album, I do believe he's converted to Islam now. Before, he was a 5%er.

Don't forget very Famous Convert and highly intelligent (cough cough)William Quilliam...

William Abdullah or W. H. Quilliam (1851 – 1932) was a poet, solicitor, ambassador, Islamic scholar, journalist, and leader, who is particularly noted for founding England's first Masjid and Islamic centre. A convert from Christianity to Islam, Quilliam was influential in advancing Islam within the British Isles, gaining many converts through his literary work and the many charitable institutions he founded.
