As The Recording Of “Eternally Husseini” Winds Down, We Break To Pray For Bolivia’s Evo Morales

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Getting ready to smash the penultimate session for “Eternally Husseini” but I wanted to take a moment to send my thoughts and prayers to Bolivian President Evo Morales, who, according to Cuban media’s announcement today, will be heading to Cuba to undergo surgery in just a few weeks to remove a nodule in his vocal chords. Bolivia’s first Indigenous head of state is the apogee of revolutionary and has been a friend to both the Syrian Arab Republic and the Palestinian cause in ways that put just about every “Arab” and “Muslim” regime in the world to shame. He has given new meaning along with new strength to Anti-Imperialism and Anti-Zionism and every last one of us should be studying his remarkable life and incandescent achievements. Indeed, his homeland of Bolivia as well as the whole of Latin America and the Global South are eternally changed for the better because of his social and political ascendancy. Even though the operation is a minor one, after what befell El Comandante Hugo Chavez, we know that such things still need to be handled with the utmost vigilance. So get well soon Señor Presidente… Mouqawamists everywhere are pulling for you! VIVA EVO!

El Comandante Hugo Chavez Has Been Gone 4 Years Now But He Still Thunders Triumphantly In Our Hearts

by Jonathan Azaziah

Hard to believe that it’s been 4 years to the day already. Ever seen animations of hypothetical scenarios in which giant meteors collide with Earth and leave unprecedented ruin in their wake? Metaphorically speaking, that’s what took place on March 5th, 2013 when Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias, the father of Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution and among the most important, successful and paradigm-shattering revolutionaries of the last century, departed from this plane of existence. His passing, or, more appropriately and accurately, MARTYRDOM, left a gaping hole in the fabric of the worldwide struggle against Zio-Imperialism and an even bigger tear in the heart of humanity. As official stories go, it’s said that El Comandante died of cancer. On the surface of course, that is the case. ***HOW*** the founder and ever-enduring source of Chavismo contracted the disease though is a different matter entirely. Even before his death, Chavez repeatedly accused the US ZOG of poisoning him and other Latin American leaders with cancer.

Palmyra Has Been Freed From ISIS Once Again! Long Live The Syrian Arab Republic!

by Jonathan Azaziah

Zio-NATO’s ISIS proxies in Palmyra have been defeated again! The Pearl of the Desert has been completely liberated! All hail the Syrian Arab Army, Russian Aerospace Forces and of course, the Lebanese Islamic Resistance of Hizbullah, the bleeding edge, crown jewel and pinnacle asymmetrical fighting force of our global resistance movement against World Zionism. And salutes to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and Iraq’s Kata’ib Hizbullah and Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba, who were also present at various stages of the battle, offering expertise and martyrs. With Tadmur freed from Daesh, one of the last plots of the Obama ZOG against Syria has been overturned, and the Resistance Axis alongside Moscow can now focus all of their attention on freeing the remaining Takfiri-occupied regions of Syria: Raqqa, Deir Ezzor and Idleb. The Trump regime can either get on board with the advancement by staying the hell outta the way or get steamrolled, just like its predecessor. President Supercilious Orange needs to know that there will not be any American-sponsored “safe zones”, i.e. terrorism-launchpads/partition-patches, on Syrian soil. It just isn’t gonna happen. All of Syria however will indeed be a TRUE safe zone once the last vestiges of the ‘Israeli’-Western-backed Wahhabi scourge are eliminated and pluralistic civilization is restored to the territories they once sullied with their backwardness and perversions. Let the countdown to Syria’s full liberation begin. Tick-tock, Zionist demons.

“Eternally Husseini” Update: Recording Process Near Completion And More Mouqawamah Music To Come!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Your man is on fire. Or better still–FREEZER BURN. For a good while now, I’ve been hard at work in the studio, putting the finishing touches on a lot of important and powerful music that is going to be dropped imminently. And over the last ten days especially, I’ve just been STEAMROLLING–like Hizbullah in future operations in the Galilee. Banged out my verses for my fam from another ma’am Shan51’s upcoming and soon-to-be-labeled classic album, “From Darkness Came Light”. I’m featured on two joints, “Spitfire Sages” and “Monsoon Revolution” (which is a particularly big honor because we’ll be joined by Pyrit, Phaze and the legendary Canibus). And I’ve also been BLAZING through the remaining tracks on my own upcoming record “Eternally Husseini”, knocking out 5 of the remaining 9 joints. I’ve laced up “Labaykah Ya Muhammad (S.A.W.W.)” (an ode to our Noble Prophet), “We Love You Mahmoud!” (an ode to Ahmadinejad), “We Are One Hand” (an Iraqi unity anthem), “Ahlul Iblis” (an intense, rage-filled lyrical tirade against the Takfiri terrorist filth) and “Hidden Hands of Entropy” (a storm of a joint about the Armenian Genocide). The moment I’m done recording, which should be at the end of this coming week, I will announce the official release date of the album, so STAY TUNED! I also have a remix for my gifted brethren Anuragi’s remarkable song “Aazadi”–Striking Star Salute to my beloved brother Abbas Shamael Rizvi who did the amazing video for the joint–on deck, just wait ’till y’all hear it! And lastly… A song that is simultaneously very dear and very gut-wrenching to me, “They Will Never Take Us Alive”, a tribute to my martyred friend Ghassan al-Husseini who lost his life last year in a Saudi air strike on Saada, is nearly ready to go and I am aching to share it. I will not be on social media as much as I race to the finish line on each of these projects so please forgive me in advance for missing any of your posts and updates as well as any delays in responding to messages. All my love to y’all. FTJ, DTI, DTS, ZMF, Islam. #EternallyHusseiniComingSoon #MaddCold #HipHopHizbullah

Malcolm X (R.A.) Saved My Life And 52 Years After His Martyrdom, He Remains The Foundation For All Revolutionary Muslim Activists

by Jonathan Azaziah

Humanity died on this day 52 years ago, when Hajj Malik el-Shabazz (R.A.), better known to the world as Malcolm X, was gunned down in the Audubon Ballroom of Washington Heights. We are told by the Zionist-dominated mainstream media that the Nation of Islam killed him but we know better. Traitors within the NOI were indeed the triggermen but they weren’t the orchestrators. That distinction goes to the COINTELPRO tandem of the FBI and the Anti-Defamation League Of B’nai B’rith (ADL), which were both conducting heavy surveillance on Malcolm up until the day of his martyrdom and which both wanted the elimination of this giant at all costs because of his stances on Anti-Zionism, Anti-Imperialism and Black Independence.

Palestinian Activist-MC Mabous48’s 30-Track “Sum Power 4 Da Masses” Is A Hip-Hop Masterpiece

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

If you love Palestine and you love Hip-Hop, then what you need to do is go cop my dearest brother from another mother Ali Mabous’s new album “Sum Power 4 Da Masses”. Sometimes dark and sometimes beautiful, sometimes poetic and sometimes raw, but always, always, ALWAYS dope beyond measure, my beloved dun effortlessly delivers a 30-track masterpiece and his best work to date. The son of martyred Palestinian Resistance legend Muhammad Abbas (aka Abou Abbas) and an artist-activist of the utmost ability and passion, Mabous48’s story ***MUST*** be heard and should be cherished by anyone and everyone who considers himself (or herself) Mouqawamist-minded. I was (and am) so happy to be part of this gorgeous release, on the 21st joint, “Power Of Language (Language Is War),” and it is definitely one of the highlights of the record. My other personal favorites are “Power Trippin'”, “Tales of Power”, “Hip-Hop and I”, “Universal Movement”, “Mabous Da Masses” and “Pure Power” which features Hip-Hop legend Canibus. Mabous, habibi, you should be beyond proud of yourself for this project… It ain’t just your magnum opus but a gem and a half. From Iraq to Falasteen, Brooklyn to Montreal, Striking Star Salute and keep ’em coming!!

Million-Man Jummah March For Yemen’s Fallen: Al-Saud Cannot Defeat Ansarullah And The Yemeni Culture Of Martyrdom

by Jonathan Azaziah

Never lose track of the truth that steadfastness and faith, defiance and resistance are all interchangeable with the word “YEMENI”. Beginning at the crack of dawn yesterday for Jummah, the Yemeni Islamic Resistance and its supporters mobilized in their millions on the streets of Sanaa to offer their salutes to the moujahideen of Ansarullah who had fallen defending Yemen over the past week, as well as the many civilians who had lost their lives to US-UK-‘Israeli’-backed Saudi air strikes and siege. Yemen’s capital turned into a human sea of martyr portraits, Yemeni flags and banners of Ansarullah’s slogan–the best slogan there is. With bombs falling all around them, the first concern of the Yemeni Mouqawamah was to uphold the honor of its martyrs, a missive to the Wahhabi-Takfiri despots that no drop of blood that they spill is forgotten. You chilled up yet? I damn sure am. Continue reading Million-Man Jummah March For Yemen’s Fallen: Al-Saud Cannot Defeat Ansarullah And The Yemeni Culture Of Martyrdom

A Hip-Hop Hizbullah: Islamic Revolution International Center Interviews Jonathan Azaziah About Life, Music and Counter-Hegemony

Introduction (by Jonathan Azaziah): Jummah Mubarak! Been meaning to share this with y’all for a good while. Back in October, I had the honor and blessing of being interviewed by the Islamic Revolution International Center, a zine/think tank run by revolutionary Iranian students. We talked a little bit about where I came from and what drove me to become an MC; the origins of Islamophobia; Zionist control of the music industry; the fight to overthrow World Zionism’s system of hegemony; and the definition and aims of Mouqawamah Music. As a Khomeiniist, this meant a great deal to me and I pray all of you, my dear comrades, enjoy the read. I have to thank brother Abdullah Mohamadi for the beautiful opportunity and in these arduous times, I also want to once again extend all my love and solidarity to the resistant Islamic Republic of Iran and its most wonderful people.

***Just a quick note regarding the title: “Hip-Hop Hizbullah”, which I mention in the interview, is a lyric from my song “The Liberators“, featuring my beloved brother Khanverse KV, off my 2015 album “Son of Kufa Vol. 1: Rise Of The Anomaly”. With the subject matter at hand, I consider it most apt 😀 ***

Islamic Revolution International Center: Can you give us a brief bio of yourself?

Jonathan Azaziah: My name is Jonathan Azaziah–which is Arabic for “powerful light”–and am known on the mic as Madd Cold, a moniker I earned because of the harsh truths I would spit whilst rap-battling in the streets of Brooklyn (or Iraqlyn as I like to call it), New York City, where I was born and raised. I am 29 years old and am the son of an Iraqi father and a Moroccan-Russian mother. DTI (Death to ‘Israel’!) is my motto, “Ya Hussein (A.S.)!” is my battlecry, Mesopotamia is my soul, Palestine is my compass and Yemen is my heart! Don’t have anything else on my mind 24 hours a day except playing my part in the liberation of our people from the clutches of World Arrogance.

Today We Remember Sheikh Ragheb Harb and Sayyed Abbas Moussawi: Martyred Hizbullah Titans Who Paved The Way For Victories Over ‘Israel’

by Jonathan Azaziah

February 16th will forever live in sanctity and fury. For it is the day in which two of the most important and beloved figures in humanity’s struggle against World Zionism ascended to Jannah via martyrdom. You should know their blessed names but we will nevertheless speak them for posterity: Sheikh Ragheb Harb (R.A.), martyred in 1984, and Sayyed Abbas Moussawi (R.A.), martyred in 1992. Hizbullah commemorates their sacrifices and heroic lives every year (along with Hajj Imad Mughniyeh [R.A.]) at this time, in a ceremony known as Martyred Leaders’ Day, and what they represent for the Lebanese Islamic Resistance, its history, its foundation and its victories cannot be stated enough. Continue reading Today We Remember Sheikh Ragheb Harb and Sayyed Abbas Moussawi: Martyred Hizbullah Titans Who Paved The Way For Victories Over ‘Israel’

Trump-Tillerson-Kelly War On Venezuela Begins: US Regime Puts New Sanctions On Bolivarian VP Tareck El Aissami, Falsely Labels Him “Drug Kingpin”

by Jonathan Azaziah

All eyes should be on the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. In Mouqawamah Music’s analysis of Trump’s defeat of Zio-Killary Clinton, we suggested that what Supercilious Orange promised World Zionism to push him over the edge as the preferred candidate and secure the presidency was delivering the revolutionary government in Caracas on a bloody, silver platter. Sure enough, just a few weeks after Trump claimed the Oval office, he chose ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson as his pick for Secretary of State, a rabid anti-Bolivarian fanatic who had been in conflict with both El Comandante Hugo Chavez (RIP) and Nicolas Maduro.

Mouqawamah Music’s harsh follow-up analysis on Trump, his family history and his repugnant cabinet delved deep into Tillerson’s hostilities against Venezuela–including his subversive attempts to start a war for oil between the Bolivarian Republic and Guyana in ’15–along with the neocon Homeland Security head John Kelly who delusionally thinks Hizbullah and Iran are using Latin America (Venezuela especially) as a base for drug running. And now here we are, not even a month into Trump’s reign, and the aggression against Venezuela has begun in earnest with a new set of sanctions targeting Vice President Tareck El Aissami, Syrian-Lebanese Druze revolutionary, prominent defender of the Palestinian cause and longtime Chavista. The American regime is ridiculously and offensively calling Venezuela’s second-in-command a “drug kingpin” and has baselessly accused him of “playing a significant role in international narcotics trafficking.” Continue reading Trump-Tillerson-Kelly War On Venezuela Begins: US Regime Puts New Sanctions On Bolivarian VP Tareck El Aissami, Falsely Labels Him “Drug Kingpin”
