http://www.pbs.org/pov/pov2009/newmus... Puerto Rican-American rapper Hamza Pérez pulled himself out of drug dealing and street life 12 years ago and became a Muslim. Now he's moved to Pittsburgh's tough North Side to start a new religious community, rebuild his shattered family and take his message of faith to other young people through hard-hitting hip-hop music.

"New Muslim Cool" by Jennifer Maytorena Taylor airs on PBS Tuesday, June 23, 2009 (check local listings). When the FBI raids his mosque, Hamza must confront the realities of the post-9/11 world, and himself. "New Muslim Cool" takes viewers on Hamza's ride through streets, slums and jail cells — following his spiritual journey to some surprising places in an America that never stops changing. PBS airdate: June 23, 2009. Check local listings and more http://www.pbs.org/pov/pov2009/newmus...
