DEEN TIGHT takes us on a controversial and very emotional journey through the lives of several Muslim hip hop artists as they search deep within their hearts to find a balance between their faith, culture and identity as Western Muslims.
Music, considered taboo practice for many traditional Muslims, has also become one of the most prominent methods for Muslims living in the West to share their faith with the world.
We take you on a journey from California, Atlanta, New York, the UK, Morocco and Abu Dhabi with our artists as they deal with their own internal conflict as well as external pressures and criticism in search of the answer to a very pressing question:
Hip Hop: Is it faith or folly?
