American Ex-Rapper Loon Detained In Belgium


The American former rapper Loon who converted to Islam in 2009 was detained at Brussels airport earlier this week, Belgian media reported Sunday.

The American singer, born Chauncey Lamont Hawkins, now called Amir Junaid Muhadith, was on his way to attend an Islamic conference in Brussels.

The former rapper is wanted in the US on drugs charges three years ago before he converted to Islam and the American authorities are calling for his extradition.

Muhaidth now lives in Algeria and travels around the world giving talks about Islam and his conversion.

His lawyer has called for his release, said the reports.
