Let the final piece of artwork mark the final countdown to “Eternally Husseini”! Now less than 2 days away!
Even though martyred Venezuelan President El Comandante Hugo Chavez (RIP) and Bolivian President Evo Morales aren’t Muslims nor mentioned by name on this album, Intifada Street founder Mohammad Hamza and I decided to include them in the promo and with the Zulfiqar Mic-Sword at that because they both stand for truth in the face of Washington’s aggressions and because they both represent the Husseini spirit in their cores. They were featured heavily on my previous record “Son of Kufa Vol. 1: Rise Of The Anomaly” and shouted out on “Globalized Yemen” off my lyrical dedication to the Yemeni people “Felicity Of The Oppressed”, and as far as myself, Iron Galaxy and Hamza are concerned, they are revolutionaries of the most exceptional caliber who put the vast majority of “The Ummah” to shame. Verily, with their words and actions, Chavez and Evo have not merely defied Zio-Imperialism but constructed remarkable Resistance infrastructures in their respective homelands and uplifted millions of their peoples from the squalor imposed on them–and the whole of Latin America–since the dawn of the colonialist era. Going even deeper, both Chavista Venezuela and Evo’s Bolivia have put their own lives on the line and that of their nations to uphold the Palestinian cause as well as to defend Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) living heirs, Hizbullah, the Islamic Republic of Iran and Syria. And truth be told, there is nothing more Husseini in this day and age than challenging the Yazid (L.A.) and Shimr (L.A.) of modern times, i.e. the usurping Zionist entity and every last one of its puppets. On that note, let it be remembered that Chavez holds the distinction of being the only head of state to ever be praised by Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah outside of the Resistance Axis.
Just like Aba Abdallah (A.S.) resisted, paving the way for blessed heroes like Al-Mukhtar (R.A.) and Zayd (A.S.) to rise up in his honor, because Evo and Hugo have stood up to Empire Judaica, they’ve birthed resistance and nonaligned movements across their region. Keeping all of this in mind, how could we ***NOT*** have included them in this release and the inauguration of Hip-Hop Hizbullah?! Art and music, ESPECIALLY Hip-Hop, have played a tremendous role in the consciousness shift in Venezuela and Bolivia, with Chavista MCs routinely seen at the massive rallies in support of President Maduro, and Aymara, Quechua and other indigenous groups dropping all types of anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist dopeness to back Evo and his revolution. This project, as Shi’a-Centric and Islam-Centric as it is, nevertheless is still as much for the Bolivarian revolutionaries of Venezuela and Bolivia as it is for Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Iran, Sheikh Zakzaky and other revolutionary heroes and peoples mentioned throughout the 15-track journey. Yes indeed El Comandante Chavez! Comrade Evo! Striking Star Salute! “Eternally Husseini” is for y’all too and we ain’t got no qualms saying it!! #EternallyHusseiniComingSoon #HusseiniDayMay25th #MaddCold #HipHopHizbullah #VivaChavez #VivaEvo #LongLiveBolivarianism
