Remarkable Current commands respects in the arena of Muslim hip hop.
Initially coming together as friends, the group has flourished to include musicians, writers and producers who not only share their love of music and art, but also the desire to use their talents to share a message of universal peace and unity.
Founded in 2001 by Anas Canon, also known as DJ belikeMuhammad, the artist collective has garnered the attention of both young and old alike.
Last summer the group went on a US State Dept. sponsored tour of Tunisia and Algeria serving in the capacity of Goodwill Ambassadors.
“My intention is really to help develop a Muslim American culture, something that is uniquely American, and also Muslim. Every great society that has been exposed to Islam found a way to synthesize Islam into their existing culture. The art that we create puts us in a position to define ourselves to the world, be it Muslim or American, and create an identity that is uniquely Muslim and uniquely Western or American." - Anas Canon, Executive Producer, Remarkable Current
