At a young age, before he made it into music, Yasiin featured in a couple of movies. His first role was when he was 14 in the film God Bless The Child.
Best Known For
Yasiin is mostly recognised for his first album released in 1999 titled Black On Both Sides. This album sold almost a million copies in the US alone. His role in The Woodsman won him the Black Reel Award for Best Indie Actor in 2005.
Yasiin is assumed to be straight as various sources record him having 6 children.
Yasiin is a Muslim. His father belonged to the Nation of Islam and therefore was exposed to the religion when he was 13. From then his father taught him how to perform the Islamic rights before prayers. When he was 19, he made the Muslim faith declaration (Source: beliefnet.com)
Worth to know
He was detained by the South African authorities when he tried to leave the country. He believes that he is somehow been targeted and the immigration has been limiting his career as well as raising false allegations against him. These circumstances and various others led to Yasiin declaring his retirement as an actor and musician. He, therefore, went ahead to release the album he was working on at that moment as his farewell album. (Source: thedailybeast.com, 20/01/2016)
