Things to look foward to: Deen Tight

Deen Tight is a documentary film directed by Mustafa Davis and Ilyas Curtis of Tabah Films set to premier in the Bay Area soon!

These brother's have truly put in a lot of work. Many times you go out to support a fellow Muslim. Sitting through their boot-leg film and say to them, " that was pretty good brotha." And go home and say to your wife, "Someone really needs to tell that brother to stop making movies." I want to tell these brothers to start working on more films!

Many shots were taken on location in the USA, U.K., and the Middle East to emphasize the global impact of hip hop Islam in both in Western and other Muslim cultures.“Deen Tight” focuses on the traditional religious ideals and the positive/negative influence of hip-hop on our Muslim Youth. Muslim Youth today, especially in San Diego, have used Hip-Hop as a means of dawah or an invitation to learn about Islam. Many traditionalist do not appreciate this form of invitation.

"Deen Tight" features interviews and appearances with well known Muslim artists such as HBO Def Poetry Jam Artist Amir Sulaiman, Kumasi of Black Wallstreet, Bay Area Underground Beat Maker Fanatik, Producer DJ Be Like Muhammad, DJ Kid Dragon, and others.
