Sixth Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Is Out: Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

The countdown to “Eternally Husseini” continues on with a vengeance! Just 43 days away now and Iron Galaxy and I cannot wait to share it with y’all!

And who really represents Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) courage, patience, steadfastness, love for Islam, compassion for humanity, truthfulness and commitment to justice in this age like Nigeria’s Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky? We now stand at 16 months since the Zionized, Westoxified, Saudi-bought Nigerian regime carried out the Zaria Massacre and unlawfully threw the Sheikh and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat into a prison cell. 16 months that “The Ummah” has been silent. 16 months that the “human rights activists” have been silent. 16 months that the “Palestine Solidarity Movement” has been silent. But not us though! Our tongues and our pens still cut through propaganda for the Sheikh and will continue to do so, ruthlessly, until he is liberated! Beautifully rendered here by none other than Intifada Street art-marksman Mohammad Hamza, Sheikh Zakzaky is mentioned on numerous “Eternally Husseini” songs and has an entire track, “Silence On The Sheikh”, dedicated to him and the struggle of the Nigerian Shi’a for their rights. “Silence On The Sheikh”, which features the remarkable lyrical gifts of Yusuf Abdul-Mateen Trombly of Blak Madeen, Rafiqi Green and Khanverse KV, not only highlights the sacrifices of the Zaria Martyrs and the saintliness of Sheikh Zakzaky, it’s also an anthem of Islamic unity–something we need so desperately in this time of Saudi-Wahhabi assertiveness and weaponized Takfirism. I said it when the joint dropped last year and I’ll say it again now: It’s the most wonderful thing I’ve ever done in my 17 years on the microphone.

Fifth Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Is Out: Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (R.A.)

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

“Eternally Husseini” is now just 46 days away from release!

And since today marks 37 years after one of the most prolific revolutionary minds of the Arab-Islamic world was murdered in cold blood by the US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed tyrant Saddam Hussein, it is the perfect occasion to release the next masterpiece of my genius-artist comrade Mohammad Hamza’s “Eternally Husseini” series: Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr. This great Iraqi Shahid, a man whose stature reduces planets to dust and suns to fragments, was abducted from his home–where he had been kept locked up on house arrest for months solely for his WRITINGS in support of Iran’s Islamic Revolution–on April 9th, 1980. He was then beaten, tortured and subsequently executed when Saddam’s thugs hammered a nail into his head. The Sayyed was also forced to watch his sister, Sayyeda Amina “Bint Huda” Haidar al-Sadr (R.A.), a towering Islamic scholar in her own right, get brutally murdered right before his very eyes. But what the Yazid-like despot Saddam and his Zionist masters failed to grasp is that someone like Sayyed Baqir al-Sadr is impossible to kill. For the legacy that he left was immortal. Among his students were Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Sayyed Abbas Moussawi (R.A.), Sheikh Na’im Qassem, Sayyed Hashem al-Haidari and many others from Hizbullah and the Iraqi Resistance. It was this great Iraqi Shahid who wrote the constitution for the Islamic Republic of Iran. His critiques of both Western “socialism” and capitalism are rivaled by few not only in our region or even the Global South but the entire planet. Just as much as Imam Khomeini (R.A.), he is a godfather of Mouqawamah regionwide and the Muhammadi-Husseini blood which once ran through his veins was honored with his every deed.

Fourth Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Is Out: Syrian President Dr. Bashar al-Assad

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

With “Eternally Husseini” now just 47 days from its release, and in the aftermath of the Khan Sheikhoun chemical weapons false flag attack and the Trump regime’s subsequent illegal attack on Al-Shayrat Airbase in Homs, the time couldn’t be more perfect or apt to release the next piece of genius promo artwork for the album by the invaluable and noble Mohammad Hamza of Intifada Street: Syrian President Dr. Bashar al-Assad. It has become a talking point in the alternative media and even the Resistance Camp over the years that the Zionist war on the Syrian Arab Republic is not about Assad. But this is wrong. Very, very, VERY… WRONG. Fact of the matter is, at the root of Zion’s attempts to destroy Syria are the desire to overthrow this individual, Assad, and the strategic necessity of World Parasitism to replace him with someone who is not going to resist US-‘Israeli’ hegemony but comply with it, facilitate it and happily serve it.

Third Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Is Out: Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

The march to “Eternally Husseini” continues! Only 54 days away now!

In the wake of Iraqi Islamic Resistance group Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba (HHN) forming the Golan Liberation Brigade, a very dear Iraqi-Syrian brother of mine said to me just the other day that never before has he been as proud to be Iraqi as he is right now. And I couldn’t agree more. That our dauntless moujahideen–who are already in the midst of fighting the merciless Takfiri enemy not only on our own soil but also across the western Iraqi border on multiple fronts in the Syrian Arab Republic–would make the strategic decision to put their best and brightest on the front lines of another arena in direct confrontation with the ‘Israeli’ enemy is a testament to their heroism, their Anti-Zionist vision, their love of martyrdom, their deep-rooted commitment to the path of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and their passion for the Palestinian cause. Leading HHN’s brave fighters of course is the one and only Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi. Rendered gorgeously and perfectly here by Mohammad Hamza aka Dr. Ever-Brill (founder of Intifada Street and my beloved brother), Harakat al-Nujaba’s fiery and exceptional chief is a moujahid paralleled by very, VERY few in the Ummah today. A son of Iraq’s fiercely Husseini and poverty-stricken Shi’a south, he began his revolutionary career as a student of Al-Shahid Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr. He was a rising star at the Hawza of Najaf al-Ashrad and completed his studies with the highest honors. Despite all his accolades however, he has always remained a humble servant beholden to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W.) and Ahlul Bayt (A.S.)

Second Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Is Out: Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Only 59 days ’till “Eternally Husseini” explodes into your headphones like one of Ansarullah’s ballistic missiles!

Marking two years of Dönmeh Al-Saud’s aggression against Yemen, let’s raise our fists one time to honor the man who has guided the Yemeni people against the Zio-Imperialist scheme to divide their nation; the hero who has commandeered a powerful resistance movement which has already etched its place in the pantheon of counter-hegemonic strugglers for all-time: Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi. Fiery and eloquent, brilliant and wise, the leader of Ansarullah is as fearless as any moujahid currently on the battlefield defending Yemen against the Saudi-led invaders. He is a Soldier-Saint with a truly LIVING LEGEND status. Trained in the Muhammadi-Husseini-Zaydi sciences at the onset of his teenage years by his brother, the giant of giants Sayyed Hussein al-Houthi (R.A.), Sayyed Abdul Malik always had a passion for Islam, Anti-Imperialism and Palestine, which rests dearest and deepest in his heart. And when his blessed brother was martyred at the hands of the US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed Saleh regime in the first war launched by the Sanaa tyranny against the people of northern Yemen in ’04, he stepped in to lead the Houthis into their next phase. Like Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah taking over for Sayyed Abbas Moussawi (R.A.) and transforming Hizbullah into the powerhouse it is today, Sayyed Abdul al-Houthi made Ansarullah into a game-changing, region-shifting resistance organism from a ragtag group of fearsome guerilla fighters. But it was during Operation Scorched Earth that his transcendent essence was solidified. Al-Saud was mercilessly bombing Saada and hit the Al-Houthi family home. Al-Arabiya triumphantly proclaimed that Sayyed Abdul Malik was killed in the attack. But alas! Just days later, he popped up in an interview, wounded with his arm in a sling and some burns but little else, and he fiercely declared, “I am not dead o’ tyrants! I am alive and I am well! I carry the scars of your cowardly air raids with pride! Hear me! We will fight you ’till all of Arabia no longer knows your oppression!” The man was struck by the sickle of the angel of death and he walked away unscathed. The Lion of Dahyan indeed!

First Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Art Is Out: Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

“Eternally Husseini” drops in 64 days!

There is no revolutionary as formidable, inspiring and important as Hizbullah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. He stands as both a giant-like individual and an unstoppable spiritual force who is feared by his enemies and loved by his partisans. As the Ummah’s loudest and most eloquent voice for Yemen, the Ummah’s most steadfast champion of the Palestinian cause, the Ummah’s brightest beam of Anti-Zionism, the Ummah’s most fearless opposition to the House of Saud, and the liberator of Lebanon, he exemplifies everything Muslims and activists of all stripes should strive towards becoming. As I rhymed on my track “For the Sayyeds”, off my 2016 album for Yemen, “Exposed Saud as a pathetic embarrassment, shredded their arrogance/Sayyed you’re a legend and in Heaven no doubt the angels already built you sevens of the most splendid, incredible garrisons/”. It is for this reason, as we seek to leave our own legendary mark in the struggle against Zio-Imperialism, that Sayyed Hassan is featured so heavily in all aspects of “Eternally Husseini”. If there was any one person who represents Imam Hussein (A.S.) to the fullest in this epoch, it is Nasrallah, and if there was anyone who carries the Husseini spirit in his every word and deed, again, it is Nasrallah. When I write my bars, I carry him with me. When I lace up in the booth, I carry him with me. When I rip on stage, I carry him, one of a mere handful of Islamic warrior-saints in the last 1,000 years, with me. And I know that Mohammad Hamza, the brilliant artist (and my brother-in-arms) behind this gorgeous print and all the other “Eternally Husseini” artwork, does the same when he sits down with a blank canvas and gets to knocking out a masterpiece. “Labaykah Ya Nasrallah!” isn’t just a chant, it’s a way of life. And we will forever be at Sayyed Abou Hadi’s service until the casket drops. Beyond that too. He embodies the true meaning of “Eternally Husseini” and because of that, we emulate him in all that we do. #EternallyHusseiniComingSoon #HipHopHizbullah #MaddCold #HusseiniDayMay25th #LabaykahYaNasrallah

It’s Official! “Eternally Husseini” Is Finished And Will Drop On May 25th, 2017!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

“Eternally Husseini” is offically recorded in its entirety! I’m done! Alhamdulillah ya Rab! And so, as the mixing and mastering process now begins, I’d like to announce the ironclad release date for the album: May 25th, 2017, Resistance and Liberation Day. Yes, Iron Galaxy and I picked this holy and historic occasion for the day we drop our record because just as Hizbullah liberated Lebanon from a 22-year Zionist occupation and killed ‘Greater Israel’ dead, we hope these 15 tracks will not only raise further awareness among our ranks, but also set off a chain reaction which will birth an Anti-Parasitic Hip-Hop movement determined to free our music and culture from Jewish/Corporate domination. I’ll be releasing individual promo pieces of each one of the revolutionary figures you see here (and a few other surprises) at least once a week until “Eternally Husseini” drops. I would be under-selling the living daylights out of it if I just tell you that the record is dope, that it’s just fly as skies set ablaze or that it’s just ill as hospitals with a dire medicine shortage. It’s next-level all the way around and y’all are gonna flip like acrobats on angeldust when you hear it. TRUST.

Final Studio Session Of “Eternally Husseini” Is Here But First, We Bow Our Heads For Today’s Syrian Martyrs

by Jonathan “Madd Cold”

‘Bout to hit the studio for the FINAL session of “Eternally Husseini”… I’ll be recording the outro to the album, an ultra-heavy track called “When The Rocks & The Trees Cry”. But it’s hard to feel anything other than something between crippling melancholy and feral fury after what happened today in Damascus. All my love and solidarity to those martyred in the Takfiri suicide bombings on the Syrian capital as well as the wounded and their steadfast families. Prayers and heartfelt vibes to my Syrian brethren too. It’s not a coincidence that these heinous atrocities were perpetrated today, for today marks six years of war. Six years of terrorism. Six years of destabilization. Six years of chaos in the name of “Greater ‘Israel'” because the usurping Zionist entity and its NATO-GCC puppets proved themselves unable to knock down the Resistance Axis in the 2006 July War. But also… Six years of RESISTANCE. Everything happening on Syrian soil at this moment is a direct result of the ‘Israeli’-American-Khaleeji failure to defeat Hizbullah over a decade ago and Syria’s refusal to abandon its decades-long military support for the resistance organisms in Lebanon and occupied Palestine. Six years of horror but Syria, its Army and its remarkable people have shown the Empire that their knees don’t buckle; their voices do not crack; their fists do not unclench; and their spirits do not shatter.

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!

“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
