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!!

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.

“See You At The Citadel”, Victory Song For Aleppo, Is Now Out!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Staying true to my promise comrades, especially all my Syrian brothers and sisters, “See You At The Citadel”, the victory track for Aleppo, is here.

Song, dance, music and art are as integral to life in Aleppo as its region-renowned hospitals and universities. For over 8,000 years, Aleppo has been at the forefront of civilization, making it one of the oldest and most continuously populated cities in the world. And standing right in the heart of this illustrious history is the Citadel of Aleppo–the proverbial and literal treasure of the city. So when the Syrian Arab Army, Hizbullah and their allies drove out the remaining terrorists from Aleppo’s Old City and planted the Syrian Arab Republic’s flag atop the Citadel, it was an iconic moment to be remembered for all-time and a victory of ancient culture over a barbarism which is antithetical to everything in existence. It was in this triumph that I found myself swept up in and transported to the front lines of liberation, like I was right there. It was in this glory that “See You At The Citadel” came to me. I’ve written many pieces about Aleppo since the defeat of Zionist-NATO-GCC-backed Al-Qaeda began, but it wasn’t enough. I needed to put it into rhyme. And as Intifada Street’s Mohammad Hamza, who did the extraordinary artwork for this song, will tell you, once the concept for “See You At The Citadel” entered my brain, the joint flowed outta me like light from the giant Christmas Tree is currently flowing out into the streets of Aleppo’s Azaziyah district. For three minutes and thirty seconds, I pour my heart and soul out for Halab. Because Halab and its defenders have poured their hearts and souls out for the world. I take y’all to the Aleppo Citadel because the Aleppo Citadel is the starting point for all history from this day forward. This is for my dear brother Aloushy al-Homsi, who has family in the Syrian Arab Army and the NDF on the battlefield in Aleppo and Hama. This is for the Syrian Arab Republic and its steadfast people, for whom books on how to obliterate empires will be written. Before that though… Rock with me at the Citadel under Liberated Aleppo’s clear skies! Let it blaze. Let it rage. Let it knock. #AleppoVictory #LongLiveAleppo #LongLiveSyria #SeeYouAtTheCitadel

“See You At The Citadel” lyrics

by Madd Cold (Jonathan Azaziah)

Five years of war and violent terror/But now we mark an end to the Zionist era/Church bells boom and the adhan too inside the Great Mosque/All that pain and, all that weight, it’s time to shake off/They wanted Bashar al-Assad gone and the scheme was heavy/But here in Aleppo, here in Aleppo Empire Judaica’s dreams were buried/Erdogan won’t see his Ottomans resurrected/Syria cannot and will not die, you can consider that Heaven’s message/Thought you’d break it, thought you’d take it into oblivion, leaving it torn and wasted but Syria, Syria, rose like a Rose from the endless wreckage/Jasmine in the air, imagine that it’s here, liberation, jubilation on the beautiful, musical, soothing faces of all these innocents who feast their eyes on the Syrian Army/They don’t look at them weary, leery or dodgy/Zionist media called them “thugs” and called them a “regime”/But listen now, all of it was sleaze/These men are protectors, defenders, they’re guardians and they’re pure and they’re pristine/Civilians did not run from them, they ran towards them, then they threw sweets at their cheeks to bless/Aleppo is reunified, ain’t no more damn East or West/Oded Yinon’s partition plot has been defeated and beat to death/Parents and gramses and grampses gaze upon their babies who are now full-grown soldiers of Jaysh al-Souri/Husbands reconnect with their wives, friends embrace and the separation breaks down, it is the greatest beauty/Their tears flow and I feel so emotional, humbled just to witness it, their sacrifices quake and move me/Look at these heroes, look at these legends/Fought nonstop for half a decade, to ensure that the crooks would be deaded/The horizon is gorgeous, go right on and look where we’re heading/Zionist entity disintegrates, squatters so shook that the seven/galaxies from 1,003 light years away, from the Milky Way, are trembling from ‘Israeli’ fear/Lame “Emir” in Qatar is having conniptions, Saudi “princes” are suicidally tripping, the end of this filth as well is crazy near/And it’s all ‘cause of Syria, Jews cried out, “Capital next!”/But these arrogant ones got stabbed in the chest/by Syrian steadfastness, which did not budge even under rabid duress/Resistance Axis intervened to fight the conspiracy off and blasted the neck/We’re one hand, our people took down the savages, yes!/Terrorists from 100 countries around the globe/Backed to the hilt by NATO, but Syria resisted, that is powerful/And lest we forget, there’d be no win if it wasn’t for the astutest brothers/Angelic Hizbullah, of Lebanon, the Iraqi Resistance, Mighty Iran and Putin’s Russia/Enemies said Syria was alone, yo, these stupid fuckers/Death to the Five Eyes Alliance/and Global Zionism, that Hive-Minded Virus/Aleppo is free! Admit it, you failed to sideline defiance/Flag of the Syrian Arab Republic flies sublime, and it shines high in vibrance/Lemme put my fist in the sky, then make the victory sign/Lemme put my fist in the sky, then make the victory sign/Takfiriyeen, you’re feeble and you’re pitiful/your “revolution” was liquidated, Aleppo is free, people, it’s a miracle!/Long live Halab, See You At The Citadel/Long Live Aleppo, Long Live Aleppo/Long Live Aleppo, you prevailed over The Devils/Long Live Halab, Long Live Halab/Long Live Halab, Martyrs of Mouqawamah, soar in Jannah/See You At The Citadel…

“Silence On The Sheikh”, Final Single Off “Eternally Husseini”, Is Now Out!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

On this day one year ago, the brutal Nigerian army unleashed complete and utter hell on the Husseiniyah Baqiyatullah in Zaria, home to Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN). Hundreds (possibly thousands) of Shi’a Muslims were murdered in the barbaric massacre, hundreds more were disappeared, at least 50 young women were kidnapped and the Sheikh himself, along with his wife, were thrown into prison on baseless charges. The American regime, the usurping Zionist entity and Saudi Arabia all had hands in the nightmarish crime. And to this very day, in spite of the Anti-Zionist, Anti-Imperialist identity of the IMN and the stature of Sheikh Zakzaky as Africa’s most formidable revolutionary and the world’s most prolific disseminator of the Deen on Earth–he’s brought between 5-10 million humans to Shi’a Islam in the last 37 years–“Palestine Solidarity Movement” activists and “The Ummah” at large have forgotten that ALLAH (SWT) gifted them with tongues.

Muslim Press Interviews Jonathan Azaziah About Arbaeen, Iraq And Islamic Unity

In an interview with Muslim Press, Muslim poet Jonathan Azaziah says, “This year’s Arbaeen march, as well as the marches of the previous two years, can be considered the largest peaceful protest against Daesh, Takfirism generally, Zionism and Imperialism on the face of the planet.”

Read the full text of the interview:

Muslim Press: Millions of Shia Muslims have defied ISIS terror attacks by visiting the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) in Arbaeen. How do you see this event?

Jonathan Azaziah: I see it in an ultra-straightforward manner: It’s the most beautiful thing in the world! You have more than 20 million human beings, mostly Shi’a Muslims of course, but also Sunnis, Sufis, Christians of all stripes, Shabakis, Ezadis and even a handful of Hindus, traveling to the holy sands of Karbala to renew their commitment to the person of Imam Hussein (A.S.), the original revolutionary; the primordial defier of tyranny; the master of martyrs and the grandsire of resistance. Ever since Aba Abdallah (A.S.) achieved victory through his sacrifice on Youm al-Ashoura in 680 A.D. (61 A.H.), a divide has existed in the world that can accurately be described as the Husseini-Yazidi split. Those who stand with justice are the partisans of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and those who stand against what is right are the partisans of the degenerate despot Yazid (L.A.) Anyone who would attempt to harm the former–i.e. these beautiful people, these souls of remarkable spirituality who love Imam Hussein (A.S.) more than they love anything–are agents of evil. And of course, from the modern geopolitical perspective, this year’s Arbaeen march, as well as the marches of the previous two years, can be considered the largest peaceful protest against Daesh, Takfirism generally, Zionism and Imperialism on the face of the planet. Yet this dazzling event remains largely under the radar among Western audiences on the one hand due to extraordinarily limited (essentially nonexistent) media coverage and primarily unknown to Arab-Islamic audiences outside of the Shi’a school of thought on the other hand because of the slanted, shameful, sectarian “reportage” from the likes of brutal dictatorships Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
