New Muslim Cool

About This Episode


After pulling himself out of a drug dealing street life, Puerto Rican-American rapper Hamza Pérez became a Muslim, and moved to Pittsburgh's tough North Side to start a new religious community, rebuild his shattered family and take his message of faith to other young people through hard-hitting hip-hop music. But when the FBI raids his mosque, Hamza must confront the realities of the post-9/11 world, and himself.
