Napoleon's Journey to Islam - Dari Rap ke Islam

Semoga Allah terus memelihara kita semua, Napoleon dan ummah.

Napoleon's Profile

Mutah Wassin Shabazz Beale (born in Newark, New Jersey on October 11, 1977) is an African-American rapper more commonly known as Napoleon.

His mother, Aquillah Beale, was Christian and his father Salek Beale, a Muslim. When he was three years old his parents were murdered and his brother, Seike Beale, committed suicide. After this, he along with his big brother Moonie Beale, and his little brother Kamil "Hellraza" Beale, moved in with their grandmother in Irvington, New Jersey.

As Beale grew older he started rapping. In 1994, he ran into his childhood friend Yafeu "Kadafi" Fula who he did not have contact with for years. Kadafi's Godbrother was the notorious rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur. Kadafi's mother, Yaasmyn Fula, told Tupac about Beale. She told him how he witnessed his parents being murdered and it made him cry. He felt he had to meet Beale. After they met, Beale joined their group - Dramacydal. Unlike the other members he did not have an alias and was just known as Mutah.

On April 5, 1995, Tupac's LP, Me Against the World was released. Mutah guest appeared on the song "Outlaw." In 1995, Mutah, Bruce "Fatal" Washington, Kadafi, Katari "Kastro" Cox, Malcolm "E.D.I." Greenidge, and Tupac formed the group the Outlaw Immortalz; which was later renamed as the Outlawz. Tupac gave each member of the group an alias taken from an enemy of America. He gave Mutah the alias Napoleon after French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte.

On February 13, 1996, Tupac's double LP All Eyez on Me was released. Napoleon guest appeared on "Tradin' War Stories," "When We Ride," "Thug Passion," and "Run Tha Streetz." He was also the center of attention in Tupac's famous song, "I Ain't Mad at Cha." Here Tupac talked about how Napoleon became a strong Muslim who always tried to do good.

In March 1997, Napoleon and the rest of the Outlawz with the exception of Fatal, moved back to California and signed with Death Row Records. They did this despite Tupac's disapproval. On December 21, 1999, the Outlawz's debut LP, Still I Rise, was finally released.

Napoleon and the rest of the Outlawz besides Fatal formed Outlaw Recordz and released their second LP, Ride Wit Us Or Collide Wit Us on November 7, 2000. Their third LP Novakane, debuted on November 6, 2001. One of the first artists who signed with Outlaw Recordz was Napoleon's brother Hellraza. Napoleon made his acting debut in Thug Life which also starred The Lady of Rage and Willie D.

Napoleon's solo debut album, Bonapartes, was due out this year featuring Jon B and Sticky Fingaz. The LP will not be realeased because Napoleon has retired from music. He lived in Abu Dhabi for four months while requesting permanent residency in Saudi Arabia.

Napoleon is residing with his family and children in Los Angeles. He has started a barbershop and salon, Platinum Kuts. He's also working on setting up a mosque for people who are interested in becoming Muslims.
In July 2006, Napoleon visted Sydney, Australia to give a talk to the Muslim youth who were being influenced by "gangsta culture" (which had resulted in the killing of two young Muslim men) and advised them against it. His talk impacted the youth greatly because of his background as a mainstream, successful rapper and his friendship/affiliation with the late Tupac Shakur, the most idolized rapper by the Sydney youth.
