Ataf Khawaja is a popular Danish rap artist,[1] of Pakistani origin.


Ataf is involved in a youth hip-hop program in Tingbjerg, Denmark, which encourages immigrant teenagers in express themselves through music.

When asked about his involvement in the program, Ataf said, "I want to show immigrant kids I'm evidence that you can make it happen. You don't have to be a cab driver...(or) a pizza delivery boy." His music has common themes about making the world a better, more accepting place.[2]
