Yemenis Celebrate Mawlid al-Nabawi In Their Millions, Upholding Muhammad’s (S.A.W.W.) Revolutionary Legacy

by Jonathan Azaziah

Is there anything or anyone in this universe more remarkable than the people of Yemen? In defiance of Saudi Arabia’s bombs, in defiance of AQAP-ISIS terrorism, in defiance of an American-‘Israeli’ plot to divide their land into statelets, Yemenis marched through the capital of Sanaa’s ancient streets in their MILLIONS for Mawlid al-Nabawi. Just as the steadfast souls of the nation once known as Saba refused to be kept from their rights and rose up in revolution to depose US-Zionist-Saudi puppet Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi; and just as these militant marvels refused to be kept from the path of resistance in their righteous confrontation with the tyrannical Wahhabi invaders; and just as these chivalrous champions rebuked the idea of being disconnected from Imam Hussein (A.S.) and showed up millions-deep for Ashoura and Arbaeen, Yemenis rejected the very notion that they would be prevented from celebrating the birth of the man who is the heart, soul and backbone of their religion and their fiery socio-political ideology: Our precious, beloved, noble, Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.)

Felicity Of The Oppressed Ain’t Just An Album, It’s A Lyrical Movie!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

My ancient bruv from another muv Shan Cee FiftyOne aka He Who Signals The Truth asked me to write this so here goes. My fourth album, “Felicity Of The Oppressed”, is more than just an ode to Yemen in Beats-Rhymes-Life(form) or a mere collective of cohesive songs; it’s a lyrical movie… A Hip-Hop play in 3 acts that starts with a bang, tears your guts out, enrages you and then crescendos with a feeling of victoriousness that soothes and consoles. While every joint stands alone as an individual experience and I did indeed write it that way, F.O.T.O. is meant to be listened to in totality so you can grasp the fullness and connectedness of the concept: Yemen’s pain and suffering at the hands of Earth’s Most Evil, followed by Yemen’s struggle against these oppressors, followed by and concluding with Ansarullah’s triumph over the forces of Dajjal and the globalizing of their win which I am humbled to be part of. You don’t skip around when you’re watching a flick, do you? Because doing so, you lose critical plot points, right? Same idea applies here.

Ansarullah Ain’t Come This Far To Surrender Its Weapons And Destiny To Al-Saud

by Jonathan Azaziah

With the UN-sponsored ceasefire in ‪#‎Yemen‬ continuing to be violated daily by genocidal Al-Saud and the worthless “peace” talks in Kuwait exposed as a total farce aimed at dislodging Ansarullah, it’s time for a small but vital history lesson.

Since the 1990s when Ansarullah was just a political party known as the Believing Youth, focused on teaching what Sayyed Hussein al-Houthi (R.A.) called ‘Qur’anic Culture’ in response to Al-Saud’s devious attempts to Wahhabiize their way of life, the Zaydis and allied Shafi’i Sunnis of North Yemen have faced nothing less than a US-Zionist-Saudi-backed war of extermination. In the beginning, this oppression was subtle, in which tactics like economic strangulation through deliberate underdevelopment and assassinations of members of the Houthi family were employed to keep people living in fear. But when Washington and London, at the behest of their ‘Israeli’ overlords, launched the criminal invasion of Iraq using nonexistent WMDs and the 9/11 false flag as the pretexts, putting the entire Arab-Islamic world at risk of falling under the Anglo-Zionist Empire’s dominion, Sayyed Hussein al-Houthi (R.A.) removed the gloves and declared that enough is enough.

Can’t Uproot Us, F.O.T.O. Single #2, Is Out!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Second single off Felicity Of The Oppressed is out now! Can’t Uproot Us! This was the song all my executive producers picked as the joint that DEFINES the record. Description says it all. “Here’s one of Cold’s craziest flows as he unleashes a tsunami of illness in an ode to the ancient, religious and political history of ‪#‎Yemen‬. Al-Saud will never uproot Ansarullah! Ever!”

New Madd Cold Album About Yemen, Felicity Of The Oppressed, Is Out!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

LONG LIVE YEMEN! Felicity Of The Oppressed–the fourth full-length album from Brooklyn and Iraq’s favorite iconoclast, Jonathan Azaziah a.k.a. Madd Cold– is dedicated to the oppressed, resilient and glorious Yemeni people and their incredible struggle against the Zionist Saudi regime. In what just may be his finest, flyest, most vibrant work yet, Azaziah packs this joint to the brim with sheer rawness, intricate rhyme schemes, totally bananas flows, unrivaled passion, instrumentals of the utmost dopeness and a ferocity that is only surpassed by the Yemeni people themselves. As far as he pushed the limit on Son of Kufa Vol.1 and Dead The Dajjal, Felicity Of The Oppressed cracks yet another paradigm into infinite shards and puts to shame all the so-called ‘revolutionary’ MCs who have categorically failed Yemen. ‘Nuff talking… Turn up the volume for the resistant Yemeni people and LET IT KNOCK! Cop it here!
