The mission of Str8way Entertainment is to enlighten the listener while upholding the standards of good music. Str8way Entertainment is an independent record label based in California. Str8way Entertainment embraces the roots of Hip-Hop and its tradition of meaningful, informative, raw, uncompromising lyrics, in a way that the Muslim community can be proud of, and non-Muslims can appreciate.
The music of Str8way Entertainment reinforces the principles and belief system of Islam while recognizing that none of us are perfect. Much of the music addresses the social, political, and economic conditions of Muslims throughout the world. But also included, are the daily struggles of those who are socioeconomically disadvantaged here in the U.S., and around the globe. At the same time, the lyrics are down to earth and can be related to by anyone on multi-levels; sometimes provoking deep thoughts for self reflection as an individual or as a member of a community, while at other times providing the motive for a smile.
The vision of Str8way Entertainment is to unite the Islamic hip hop movement into a socioeconomic force that can act as a catalyst for change. It is also our goal to provide an equally entertaining alternative to the mainstream music which is corruptive to our youth, and threatening to our morals and values. By doing so, we are able to ensure that the listener receives music that maintains the integrity of our beliefs.
