Alhamdulillah. “Globalized Yemen”, the fourth and final single off my #Yemen album Felicity Of The Oppressed, is now available. Hard to describe how proud I am of this song and how much it means to me, as it was produced by my late homie Jamal Dubois (Metal Gear Solid), one of the last beats he made prior to passing almost nine years ago. Could never bring myself to write a full piece to it, scribbling only various things over the years, because it was too painful but after hearing it in the midst of the Saudi aggression against Yemen, the words just gushed out like a lava stream from a volcano. It’s a flat-out epic instrumental and it brought the lyrical best out of me. This joint exemplifies everything that Ansarullah and the Yemeni people are and just how important their struggle is in a worldwide context. The Houthis and their comrades are like the Algerians who fought French colonialism, the DPRK, the Palestinian Resistance, Hizbullah, the Vietnamese Resistance, the Iraqi Mouqawamah, the Iranian revolutionaries led by Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.) and more. They all get shouted out here… Even got some 9/11 truth on the joint! Barely anybody is speaking about Yemen, its suffering and its victories, but that doesn’t matter… ‘Cause Haqq is Haqq and it is beyond critical for the triumphs of the Yemeni people to be globalized. So… Y’all know the deal. Throw it in your whips or your ‘phones and let it BLAST like a Striking Star missile!
