Mutah Wassin Shabazz Beale (born October 11, 1977[citation needed]), better known as Napoleon, is a former member of Tupac Shakur's rap group the Outlawz. Beale has since converted to Islam and is now a motivational speaker.[1]

Napoleon, as part of the rap group Dramacydal, appeared on a song on the 1995 Tupac Shakur album Me Against the World. Later that year, Tupac Shakur started a group that included the members of Dramacydal. Initially called Outlaw Immortalz, the group's name was soon simplified to Outlawz. The Outlawz all adopted new stage names—Beale's was Napoleon. The next 2Pac album, 1996's All Eyez on Me, featured guest appearances by both Dramacydal (2 songs) and Outlawz (1 song). Beale—credited as Mutah—was also a featured guest on a fourth song. Outlawz were also featured on 2Pac's single B-side "Hit 'Em Up". Dramacydal was absorbed into Outlawz and, after Shakur was killed in September 1996, the group moved back to New Jersey. Outlawz eventually returned to Los Angeles and released four albums between 1999 and 2002; Mutah Beale and the Outlawz appeared on over 40 million record sales world wide.

After leaving Outlawz, Napoleon he released the album Napoleon Presents The Loyalty Fam and featured on many other artists albums, such as Tha Dogg Pound, Scarface, Lil Wayne, Baby, Hot Boys and the late pop star Teena Marie[citation needed]. Finally, Napoleon appeared and wrote the lyrics for a song by DMC, from the lengendary rap group Run DMC[citation needed]. As a member of Outlawz, Napoleon also appeared on a number of Shakur's posthumous releases, as well as the Geto Boys album Da Good Da Bad & Da Ugly.

Conversion to Islam

Beale considers hip hop and Islam to be incompatible, because "they basically call for two different things" and that even if the song's message is positive, "if it is not according to the Sunnah (teachings) of the Prophet Muhammad, then it is unacceptable" Napolean attended Father Mercredi Catholic School to speak about his life and when he became a Muslim. This took place in Fort McMurray, Alberta on May 26, 2010[1]

It was announced that a documentary on Beale's life and work was being undertaken, titled Napoleon: Life of an Outlaw.[2] List 2pac albums below that Mutah Napoleon Beale appeared on
