Hijab Hip Hop

It's a trend or is it coincidence. Hip hop scene was introduce in Malaysia quite some years ago but was bring up to the mainstream mainly by the duo called Too Phat. Ever since, Hip Hop has been mixing around Malaysian music, I believe it is in line with international music scene as hip hop now cannot be separated from pop music. Every pop music need a rap to help it sell a bit in urban music market.

What am i interested at is the beginning of hip hop song rising with few women wearing hijab in Malaysia. It is awkward to think about it but in the end it blend. It became a norm in our society. This has proved that women wearing hijab are not closed minded and they are too need to stand in front of the line.

I am proud of our society as acceptance of matter like this rarely happen in other muslim country. Only in Malaysia you can find such thing are common. Where else you can find a girl wearing hijab with tight jeans and body fit T-shirt, going to the university studying medicine or law? There are some places in the world that this thing happen but in our country, it is too common to see.

A few critics have been raised regarding this issue. Not to deny that some people in our society still think that this is wrong and diverted from Muslim teaching. If someone read this post, they could shake their head and maybe even called me an apostate.

I just believe that women should have their right, and even women with hijab should have their right more than ever. I have no intention to discuss about religious value in this post.


Here are some music video of notable girl with hijab in hip hop / pop music culture in malaysia.


and another one



Anyway, not to forget, the beginning of this hijab culture in music was introduced by non other than this girl called Yuna. I believed she is the one who trigger all of this. I am not a big fan of her but she is very talented.
