A Canadian hip-hop duo known as Deen Squad are introducing the world to “halal rap,” and have removed profanities and/or sexual situations to make the songs halal (permissible under the laws of Islam).
Twenty-somethings Karter Zaher and Jae Deen form the band, and have remixed two hit songs to align with their personal themes. Fetty Wap’s hit “Trap Queen” has transformed into “Muslim Queen,” featuring lyrics about finding a romantic and religious partner, and OMI’s hit “Cheerleader” has turned it into “Believer,” about a personal quest to find a woman to pray with.
Deen Squad’s catchy videos have found a tremendous following on social media. Check ‘em out!
