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!

“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.

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

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!!

“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…
