    Medina is the second holiest city in Islam, and the burial place of Muhammad (pbuh)

    Also...does Somalia = Staten Island in Wu language?

    Public Enemy was first who was shouting out Medina in songs.

    The Gods originated lots if not most of the new york slang dating back to the 60 and 70. The Gods named each area in NY as it relates to Middle East. Manhattan = Mecca, Brooklyn = Medina, Bronx = Pelan, Queens = Iraq

    "Medina" refers to the downtown section of Brooklyn, where a few of them nikkas is from....

    kwabena1041 is the one wit the right answer....the nicknames for each major boro is derived from the street names that they were refferred to in the 60's and 70's by the huge islamic and 5% nation movement that was surging in NYC at the time....
