Hip Hop Under the Crescent Moon

Hip Hop Under the Crescent Moon

Playing tracks by

Pete Rock/Smif-n-Wessun, Oddisee, Ras Kass/Torae/Jasiri X, Wajeed and K'naan.

This is a follow up to my mix "Old Skool Under the Crescent Moon" I was reading Sohail Daulatzai's book Black Star, Crescent Moon: The Muslim International and Black Freedom, where he writes about the influence of Islam on hip hop and I was inspired to make a mix of old skool hip hop that shows the influence of Islam on Black communities in the eighties and nineties. This mix reflects the recent influence of Islam on hip hop featuring artists such as Oddisee, Pete Rock, Wajeed, Jasiri X, and K'naan.
