Rest In Eternal Serenity Nashid Abdul Khaliq (R.A.): Father and Husband, Islamic Revolutionary and Fearless Truth-Seeker

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Earlier this year on February 17th, the most important African-American Muslim thinker since Malcolm X (R.A.) and one of the foremost Islamic liberationist revolutionaries on the entire planet, Nashid Abdul Khaliq (R.A.), departed this world for the Akhira. My teacher, my mentor, my friend, my big brother… I looked at the man like a father figure and loved him as if he was such. To know Nashid in fact, was to love him. It was impossible not to. He was warm. He was comforting. He was selfless. He was valorous. And he had so much knowledge and love for humanity to impart. There wasn’t a single time in the near-decade I had the pleasure and honor of being in his orbit–yes, orbit, Sidi Nashid was planetary, masha’ALLAH–that I spoke to him and came away without learning something new or seeing our struggle against the Beast in a deeper, more strategic way.

“Eternally Husseini”, Madd Cold’s New Album Fully Produced By Iron Galaxy, Is Officially Out!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Happy Resistance and Liberation Day y’all!

You’ve heard the singles. You’ve seen the promo artwork. And now… The wait is officially over. Without any further ado, I present to y’all my newest and perhaps best album to date, “Eternally Husseini”, fully produced by my dear brother and UK-based Pashtun-Shi’a super-producer Iron Galaxy. This project has been in the works for over a year and we have been through hardship after hardship to get it completed. But alhamdulillah a thousand times because VERILY WITH HARDSHIP COMES EASE and now, with our blood, sweat, tears and souls shed, it’s here. We chose to release it today, this most blessed and most glorious of occasions, Resistance and Liberation Day, when Hizbullah freed Lebanon from 22 years of Zionist occupation, because we hope, in the spirit of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance’s historic victory, that we will inaugurate a movement to liberate Hip-Hop from its Jewish/Corporate occupiers. To accomplish this, and no doubt there’s a long way to go, we also hope, and pray, that the barriers we break on this record for Yemen, Syria, Iraq, 9/11 truth, Palestine, Sheikh Zakzaky and Nigeria’s Shi’a and so much more, will inspire other MCs to shake off the shackles of political correctness and start rhyming like real revolutionaries instead of toothless colored proxies for the “left” wing of the Empire.

And please allow me once again to deliver Striking Star Salutes to all of the wonderful brothers who contributed. Without y’all, this joint wouldn’t have been the same and I would even say that it wouldn’t have ***been*** at all. So to the eloquent and smooth Navid Nasr, the sagacious and brilliant Nashid Abdul-Khaaliq, the genius and magnificent Trevor Labonte, the soulful and spectacular Rafiqi Green, the remarkable and righteous Yusuf Abdul-Mateen Trombly, the astounding and anomalous Khanverse KV, and last but never, EVER least, the unmatched and unparalleled Mohammad Hamza of Intifada Street, whose breathtakingly beautiful artwork took this album to a whole ‘nother level… THANK YOU. Thank you all so damn much from the very bottom of my heart. That’s that for the talk! Time to let “Eternally Husseini” knock so Iron Galaxy and I can take y’all on a journey unlike anything you’ve ever heard before!

Album can be purchased for a paltry $12.99 right here.

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

“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.
