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.
