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.

“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

“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.
