Mutah Beale aka Napoleon Returns With ‘My Life’ Poem

Mutah Beale has returned to expressing himself through the power of words, this time through a poem titled ‘My Life.’

Also known as Napoleon from the Outlawz, Mutah Beale left the music industry sixteen years ago as he dedicated his life to religion. In that time, Mutah has turned his life around, moving to Saudi Arabia to live a happier life and investing in a business. Released on his YouTube, this is the first time that Mutah Beale done anything to do with rhyming since turning to religion.

The turning point that opened Mutah’s eyes to religion came when in the studio eight years after Tupac had died. He got into a fight with his brother while in a recording studio and a Muslim stepped in and stopped the fighting.

Mutah’s parents both Muslim, converting to Islam before Mutah’s birth. When he was three years old, Mutah witnessed the murder of his parents. This tragic experience led him to believe that Islam is a bad religion.

“When this guy stopped me fighting my little brother he invited me to the mosque, I took his invitation. That’s when I was able to see something for myself and I was able to make my own choice and build my own opinion”

In this incredibly personal video directed by Mohammed Alshareef, Mutah details the transition from the hood he grew up into where he’s at now. The poem doesn’t have any musical instruments or beat, just raw vocals and flow. This new poem, welcomed by fans of the Outlawz, as Mutah absence has been sorely missed.

My Life Poem By Mutah Beale

From the city of bright lights, to gun play and fist fights
To roaming the vast desert, sipping
ghawa at midnight

Some are waiting for me to fail
But Allah had better plans
Keep reliance on my Lord
While relying on no man

Trying to duck away from the haters
While staying sucker free
Making salat 5 times a day
Hoping my sins won’t be the end of me

You know we all got enemies
Some smile, pretending to be friendly
While the rest are mean mugging
Trying to hide behind their envy

It’s from the mercy of my Lord
That I went from standing on the block selling rocks,
To standing next to the kabah
Making salat next to my Ahk

Of course I come in peace but I’m still fascinated with the glock
And if you run up on me the wrong way
Then You will be treated just like a opp

I can turn the other cheek, or I can turn and grab my heat
Islam is a balance way of life
So remember that when you’re approaching me

This deen turned boys into men
Kings into peasants
Islamic empires stretched from Arabia to Africa
Those who fought against became history lessons

Those who embraced it also became a lesson, for all eyes to see and all minds to read
This deen took straight Killers from out of the hood
And placed them on siratul mustaqeem

Blood, crips, Mexicans
Gang bangers full of aggression
Is now placing their face on the floor
5 times a day with out any discretion

We thank our Lord, we thank our creator, we thank support and even our haters, because with out you hating on us, we will have no motivators

I ask Allah for good in this life, good in the next and safety from the fire

I’m Fresh off the plane, made it to the states
Mobbing through the hood in Islamic attire
And I ain’t worried about the whispers and I ain’t worried about the stares
As long as I’m striving to please my Lord
If anything happens, then who cares

I came a long way from my block which is chancellor and union
Where murderers turn funeral homes into family reunions

Where a 9 year old, gotta hold his own cuz ain’t no father inside his home

A city where once you leave your door, better start thinking raw
Cuz one wrong move
Your life is gone

Is this the way that we should live our life
Is this the environment that you really think is right
A place that’s doom with no bright future in sight
elders rejected us, but the streets embraced us
So we had to learn to fight

To you it might be wrong but to us this is all right
To you, you might not understand
But to us, this is our life.
