3.26.11 Freeway featured on CNN's Belief Blog - "How Islam shaped one rap artist"

Freeway is featured on CNN's Belief Blog today, in an article called "How Islam shaped one rap artist". Peep the quick excerpt below, watch the video, and read the whole article HERE on CNN.com.

"It’s noon on a Friday, and the parking lot at Al-Aqsa Islamic Society in North Philadelphia is quickly filling up.
One of Philadelphia's best-known rap artists, Freeway, jumps out of a black sport utility vehicle and dashes through the pouring rain to the prayer hall inside.

Islam has been a part of his life since he was a teenager.  Yet it wasn’t until adulthood that his faith changed who he was an artist.

'My faith means everything to me; it’s the thing that keeps me going every day,' the father of two said. 'It’s my core, it’s my soul.'"
