Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

How (Rap) Record Executives Further the Pipeline to Prison #PrisonIndustrialComplex #PoliceState #Farrakhan

Chicago’s ‘drill rap’ culture:  How record execs further the pipeline to prison

Did you know, my young rappers, that a meeting took place in Los Angeles some years ago where all the record executives were called together by people in power, because the jails in America are being privatized, and they are on the stock exchange?  And you don’t build a “hotel” unless you expect occupancy…  So when they are building prisons, they want to build them—but they’re building them for you; but now, they have to create a culture in the community that lends to violence, crime, drugs, guns, and prostitution.  And then it’s a steady pipeline to prison.

Chief Keef is a great hip hop artist from Chicago (he’s in Los Angeles now), but in this audience are some of the real movers and shakers in the streets of Chicago.  But they are offering you rap deals; companies like Atlantic Records:  These are real “Satans”—and they have to be exposed, brothers! 

Consider what happens:  You rap, and in your rap there’s a “beef” with another rapper, and you get real fiery about it, and you’re talking about “drilling down” (in other words, you want to kill your brother).  So, that is the kind of rap you’re doing.  And then the radio stations are complicit, because if you make something clean, they don’t want to play it; when you come to the record executives with something clean, but it has a good beat, they say: “Hey, that’s nice, but see, if you ain’t keeping it real…,” and “keeping it real” means “keeping it as it is” so that it will never change.  So if I’m rapping, and I’ve got a beef with you:  You come back with your record, and beef with me—but underneath we’re all talking about “shooting”; we’re all talking about [the ecstasy drug known in the streets as] “Molly.” 

And because many of the rap artists are street organization leaders:  So now “my rap is being played,” and because of the beefs from the rap, so then “I’ve got a gun.”  Where did you get it?  You know it’s not legal!  And then it’s, “I’ve gotta make some money/I’m slinging drugs”; and young Black girls are being turned into prostitutes to satisfy a “pimping” craze…  And what you don’t realize is that Chicago has been set up now to be the center of what you are just witnessing in Missouri.  So every day there is some killing.   Read more...
