Mecca 2 Medina

Mecca 2 Medina

Hip Hop

Mecca 2 Medina were an Islamic Hip Hop and Nasheed group formed in 1996 by rapper Rakin Fetuga (A.K.A Rakin Niass) and Ismael Lea South, formerly of UK Hip Hop scene heavyweights Cash Crew.

M2M wrote Hip Hop with a positive message, channelling a fusion of socially conscious and Islamic themes addressing the challenges faced by Muslim and ethnic minorities in Britain.

After years of playing to audiences across the world and leading workshops with inmates and disaffected youth, its members moved on to other projects; however, Rakin and Ismael have rejoined to revive M2m for a one-off performance at the 2019 Sufi Festival in Glasgow, an opportunity for Muslim audiences and hip hop lovers that definitely should not to be missed!
