The Secret Relationship Between Rappers and Jews

by Deric Muhammad, The Final Call

Hip-hop as an art form and a culture is hands down one of the most powerful international social forces in the history of the world. There is no nation on Earth where its footprints cannot be found. Rap artists who create the soundtrack that fuels hip-hop culture become equally influential. They determine trends and the general course of youth culture globally. Yet while it appears these artists who often peddle images of invincibility are in control of hip-hop, we must look deeper to see who may be in control of them.

Rap artist, Jay-Z and his business partner Damon Dash built a hip-hop powerhouse called Roc-a-fella Records. It was a Black-owned Record label that produced millions in sales. As is often the case, these two brothers reportedly had personal and business disagreements and decided to part ways. Legend has it that a Def Jam Records executive by the name of Lyor Cohen played the role of instigator, negotiator and “clean-up” businessman. What is clear is that Roc-a-Fella Records, once known as “The Dynasty”, is now owned by Def Jam. Cohen happens to be Jewish. Continue reading The Secret Relationship Between Rappers and Jews

Why Jewish Rap is Wack

by Khanverse (Mouqawamah Music EXCLUSIVE)

It’s no major secret in an expanding variety of circles that Jewish endeavors in the arts overwhelmingly result in subversive perversion. Regrettably, this vast subject has not been adequately dealt with since the Internets began and Mouqawamah Music indeed aims to fill this vacuum, eventually, God willing.

On Which Side Shall You Stand When The Skies Rain Blood? (Ya Hussein Is…)

by Madd Cold (Jonathan Azaziah, Mouqawamah Music EXCLUSIVE)

When a tyrant puts his sword to the oppressed…

Will you watch and cower, your courage proper soured and your nerves got devoured at the thought of a man being tortured in duress…

Or will you raise your voice and tell him to stop it at once…

You make peace with your Creator because you made your choice and yelled at the top of your lungs…

That you won’t be silent as injustice unfolds…

And you tell the rest of the crowd, don’t be quiet, we can stomach the blows…

We can deal with the cuts, we can cope with the bruises…

But we cannot live with our dignity broken, snapped like necks choking in nooses… Continue reading On Which Side Shall You Stand When The Skies Rain Blood? (Ya Hussein Is…)
