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.

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!

“Felicity Of The Oppressed”, Dedicated To Blessed Yemen, Is Now Available For Free Download!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

It was two years ago today that the murderous Saudi Kingdom of Darkness began its genocidal war on Yemen. And it was one year ago today that I dropped my fourth album “Felicity Of The Oppressed” in honor of this blessed, ancient land, its people, its history, its struggle, its pain, its tragedy and its triumphs led by the Yemeni Islamic Resistance of Ansarullah. Every drop of the proceeds from the record were sent to Yemen and by the grace of ALLAH (SWT), a wonderful chunk of change was raised, including enough to rebuild the Saudi-destroyed family home of my martyred brother Ghassan al-Husseini in Saada’s Dahyan. Because my goal was met, and because I believe so firmly and deeply in the project, I have removed the price sticker and in a nod to this solemn occasion, released it for free download. As I wrote in a commentary called “Felicity Of The Oppressed Ain’t Just An Album, It’s A Lyrical Movie!” last April, “Like Hizbullah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the greatest, most important revolutionary of our age, noted recently, the speech he gave on the second day of the aggression against Yemen, in which he ripped out the Saudi regime’s rotten core for the entire Arab-Islamic world to see, was the thing he was most proud of in his life. I echo this sentiment in a way I really am not capable of describing. Maybe other records I’ve done were doper than this joint, I leave that to y’all to decide, but “Felicity Of The Oppressed” is the thing I am most proud of in my life.” This very much remains the case today. I pray with every fiber of my being that y’all love and cherish this music as much as I do. So for Yemen, its martyrs and its steadfast moujahideen defending its sanctified soil from the Saudi invaders at this very moment, LET IT KNOCK!

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.

Staying True To Its Zionist Ownership & Agenda, YouTube Censors Madd Cold’s 9/11 Truth Song “Zionist Job”

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Death to YouTube. Earlier yesterday evening, I received a notification that the video for my joint “Zionist Job” was taken down due to “hate speech” and that my YouTube account had a “strike” on it, thus vastly limiting my sharing/posting “privileges” for three months and putting the account in total jeopardy if another “hate speech” violation is found. I’ve appealed the decision, but considering I have “Death To ‘Israel'”, “I Ain’t Charlie” and “Overthrow The Saudis” on the channel, I’m under no illusions that deletion is where I’m heading. This is pure, Orwellian, totalitarian censorship. YouTube, owned by the Jewish supremacist demons Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Google, has always targeted Anti-Zionist content and the removal of my song reflects this ongoing commitment to hasbara in totality. The message couldn’t be clearer: ISIS and Al-Qaeda propaganda? Fine. Saudi propaganda against the peoples of Yemen, Syria and Iraq? Fine. American, British, French and other colonialist propaganda covering up all types of crimes against humanity? Fine. ‘Israeli’ propaganda hiding atrocities and the usurping Zionist serpent’s backing of Takfiri terrorists regionwide? Fine. Hideous bigotry against Muslims? Most especially fine. Even soft 9/11 “truth” presented by the Zionist-run InfoWars/Loose Change crowd? Absolutely and perfectly FINE. But delve into Earth-shaking, game-changing, paradigm-shattering truths like who actually ***DID*** 9/11, i.e. ‘Israel’ and its Jewish-Zionist criminal network in New York and DC, say BYE-BYE ’cause that just doesn’t fly. I guess though… It’s true what they say, ain’t it? If The Monsters aren’t trying to take you down, then you’re not doing anything right, are you? So I’m gonna rock this as a badge of honor. I’ll remain upright too. With the microphone firmly in my hand and a will to keep exposing ‘Israel’ ’till all the criminal Jews and their Gentile collaborators in the 9/11 plot are brought to justice for knocking the Towers down and waging a global war on Islam. And TRUST, I will most certainly remain Anti-Parasitic as a muhfucka while I’m at it. Death to YouTube.

“Zionist Job” can still be heard on Soundcloud and Bandcamp. Let it knock and spread it far and wide in defiance of YouTube’s censorship.

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!!
