LONG LIVE YEMEN! Felicity Of The Oppressed–the fourth full-length album from Brooklyn and Iraq’s favorite iconoclast, Jonathan Azaziah a.k.a. Madd Cold– is dedicated to the oppressed, resilient and glorious Yemeni people and their incredible struggle against the Zionist Saudi regime. In what just may be his finest, flyest, most vibrant work yet, Azaziah packs this joint to the brim with sheer rawness, intricate rhyme schemes, totally bananas flows, unrivaled passion, instrumentals of the utmost dopeness and a ferocity that is only surpassed by the Yemeni people themselves. As far as he pushed the limit on Son of Kufa Vol.1 and Dead The Dajjal, Felicity Of The Oppressed cracks yet another paradigm into infinite shards and puts to shame all the so-called ‘revolutionary’ MCs who have categorically failed Yemen. ‘Nuff talking… Turn up the volume for the resistant Yemeni people and LET IT KNOCK! Cop it here!
***All album sales will be donated to Yemeni civilians, especially children, wounded in the murderous Saudi regime’s aggression***

First single off Felicity Of The Oppressed is out now! Zayd Lives! Ansarullah’s slogan, “ALLAHU Akbar! Death To America! Death To ‘Israel’! Death To Saud! Curse Be On The Jews! Victory To Islam!”, is transformed into a lyrical lightning bolt and launched at all the enemies of Yemen and the world’s oppressed people. Produced by my younger brother Dark Night, this joint truly represents the universality of the Yemeni’s people struggle and the need for all of humanity to stand up in solidarity with them against the monstrous Saudi “royal” family.
Sandals on our feet, daggers in our belt/We ain’t come to the world and start nagging it for help/Six wars we have endured and when the Saudis came, we proudly blazed ‘em alone, hammered ‘em and staggered ‘em, they knelt/They learned the consequences of daring to mess with the Houthis, we ain’t gonna have it in our realm/Left Saada a horror, there ain’t no winning lottery, it’s destitution/So you better believe we fought back properly for retribution/ Discriminated against and disenfranchised/“Tools of Iran”? Who you trying to fool, only stooge here is you, of the yahoud, so quit your damn lies/Telling you now Riyadh, hegemony is over with/Yemen was never a piece of real estate that you could just maintain endlessly in ownership/Defy your disease, our Remedy is Ultimate (SWT)/
Mossad did it let’s get it outta the way/More obvious than gray skies on the cloudiest day/ Takfiris are the very scoundrels you pay/So like “Death to Israel!”, “I Ain’t Charlie!” loudly and proudly we say/Muslims would die for our Prophet but your filth is just a cartoon?/Well, what they ain’t telling you when you go whaling, sometimes you get the catch, and other times you catch the harpoon/So no, I don’t feel sorry for y’all/When you never gave a shit about our Brown and Black bodies at all/Look how many in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen you deaded/But you hold superior morality ‘cause you defend the wenches in Femen?/Right to insult Muhammad and Christ are forever embedded?/But exposing Jewish wealth and power is “anti-Semitic”? Pathetic!/ Continue reading Madd Cold – I Ain’t Charlie→
The debut EP from Madd Cold aka Jonathan Azaziah, “Enemy Of The Entity”, is now available! Written and recorded at the height of the murderous, illegitimate “Israeli” regime’s genocidal Operation Mighty Cliff (better known as Protective Edge) assault on Gaza over the summer, “Enemy of the Entity” — Mouqawamah Music’s first release — is a masterpiece work of unmatched passion and next-level lyricism dedicated to the Palestinian people and their precious cause. Mixed and mastered by underground Hip-Hop legend Payday Monsanto, with beats done by heavyweight VTZ, Shaolin sharpshooter Metal Gear Solid (a dear brother who passed before his time, rest in power) and rising star Dark Night, and featuring partner-in-rhyme and Mouqawamah Music content editor Khanverse, Madd Cold’s “Enemy Of The Entity” has been released on this date to commemorate the 58th anniversary of the Kufr Qassem massacre. All proceeds will be donated to the Zaytoun-Bil’in Project which aims to plant olive and fig trees in defiance of criminal Zionist settlers who habitually attack Palestinian farms. “Enemy Of The Entity” isn’t just an EP, it’s an experience. Buckle up, ’cause you ain’t never heard Hip-Hop like this before! (EP cover by Chris Katko)

Created by the viciousness of British imperialism, and you are still slaves of the Raj/Upwards of 20 billion dollars a year, we know you’re getting paid from the Hajj/And every penny is used to fund oppression/40,000 prisoners in your dungeons and mothers are wondering where the sons are, where? In Al-Hayer being shunned and shredded/Plus you are buying up tons of weapons/For decades, you have put the guns to Yemen/Put your tanks in Bahrain to continue the most glum regression/And shoot tear gas and dum-dums into young protesters/Joblessness and poverty reign/’Cause hatred of the Shi3a is the only thing that clicks in your Wa77abi brains/With bloody cries, we remember May 1, 1925, this is the spirit of Baqi/This loud joint is the proud voice for the fearless in Qatif/ Continue reading Madd Cold – OVERTHROW THE SAUDIS→

Salute to Syria first, everything, that is what Syria’s worth, because it is the front line of the battle/Bless to the Syrian Arab Army, eat rebels at lunchtime, we’re with you as you crush lies into gravel/Bless to Mugabe, and Zimbabwe, we know you got that heavy revolutionary thunder, it is clear/To Kim Jong-un and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea/Struggle with no fear to defeat the disgrace in the South/Their plunder is severe but we know that you make them shake in amazement and doubt/We are with you ‘till Korea is whole again, and all the Empire’s bases are out/United Snakes of Israhell, what, you don’t see these cavaliers looting?/Traitors, you support their accursedness, me? I implore the alternative, I ain’t here for blunder brother, my solidarity, is with Mother Russia under Vladimir Putin/Smashed up the Zionist oligarchs, if they remained, things would’ve gotten messier/Blasted international spin, after the win, over the Saudi-Israeli plot in Chechnya/ Fought hard for the unity between Muslims and Christians/Only the hypocrite haters have overlooked this position/Shielder of Iran and the shielder of al-Sham/Abu Ali Putin said Russia is the shielder of Islam/Forces of the Christ and the Mahdi united as it was revealed in the Qur’an/ Continue reading Madd Cold – SOLIDARITY (GLOBAL SOUTH ANTHEM)→
No, not again/Don’t pop it in/Even when you do it slow I feel my brain jolt go pop then spin/Not a tube for feeding, it’s a tool for demons, it’s the brutal reason my soul rots and slims/Soul’s gotten dim/All of my light has fried in Guantanamo and I am in a hole locked with jinn/Gangrene build up, I feel a roach squat within/No, not my limbs, I would rather just wither up and die/Feeling the tube as it jiggles in my eye/You forcefeed us like this was the circus and we’re your creatures, isn’t this a crime?/Censored our names so your public never knows what this hunger’s like/Gitmo to Palestine, our hunger strike against the “war on terror’s” rabid lie is madd alive, we ain’t gonna run from this fight/ Continue reading Madd Cold – RAGE OF THE CAGED→
