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)
