Shaheed Tawheed

Ali Shaheed Ibrahim Tawheed al Fodiwa fell in love with basketball and hip hop, but says he really found out about the meaning of life after converting to Islam in high school. Thanks to his mom, who made him write in a daily journal, Shaheed has written poetry and rhymes since he was a little boy. After releaseing the "Scholar Warrior" album a few years ago, Shaheed released "Helath, Wealth and Knowledge of Self". According to Shaheed the album deals with "healing the world's spiritual and social ills."

Shaheed originally appeared on Tapestry on July 5, 2007
