I eat your flesh, I drink your blood, I mock your beliefs

There was a rumor circulating around Chic hip-hop circles a few months back that Capital D of All Natural was going to retire from the life because he had come to the belief that his particular interpretation of Islam forbade the creation of music. I was pretty devastated by this; as an inveterate hip-hop head who has always lamented the bewildering lack of quality rap music in this city, I had already had my heart broken by Common's departure, and I couldn't bear to lose All Natural too.

However, it turns out not to be true. While he is a Muslim of some sort, he's not giving up music, and in fact has just released a solo album which sounds pretty good based on the one track I've heard.

Now, I'm not the sort to applaud someone for abandoning their faith just so they can continue to provide me with entertainment, but...oh, wait. I AM the sort to do that. IN YOUR FACE, ALLAH! B-SIDE WINS AGAIN!
