James Ratliff (born 1981), known by his stage name Husalah is an American rapper from Pittsburg, California. He began his career with the Pittsburg group the Mob Figaz, whose first album, C-Bo's Mob Figaz, was released in 1999. Like his close-friend, The Jacka, he is a devout Muslim, which contributes much in his lyrics.
In 2006 Husalah was serving time on a five-year sentence for selling cocaine. Whilst Husalah was in prison rumors arose that he had died being stabbed in prison.[dead link] This proved however to be an Internet hoax, when Husalah's prison discharge papers were posted on the Internet, and when World Star Hip Hop released a video of Husalah the day he was released, talking about the rumors.
