Sat, 15 Sep 2007 12:30:00 +0000Welcome to a new episode of the Hip Hop War Report. Today we bring you breaking news involving the Jena 6 travesty and a recent hate crime of similar nature that occurred at the University of Maryland. Sue Ying will brief everyone on the Jena 6 case and its latest developments. Bashir will chime in and give you the truth behind the hate crime that the University of Maryland won't even acknowledge as an act of terror. Bashir speaks with Solomon Commissiong who is Assistant Director of Student Involvement and Public Relations on campus at the Nyumburu Cultural Center. Solomon and 2 of his colleagues give us the true breakdown of what took place as well as the current emotional state on campus. Before we even get to that we have to shed light on a gross injustice by US Capitol Police on a very dear friend of the Hip Hop War Report. Reverend Lennox Yearwood was brutally attacked by US Capitol Police simply for exercising his right to appear at a public hearing on Capitol Hill. Minister Yearwood is the president of the Hip Hop Caucus a organization which strives for political and social change. The Hip Hop Caucus organizes youth to get actively involved in issues of war, poverty, racial injustice and the environment. Please go to www.hiphopcaucus.org and support this movement. Rev. Yearwood released, charged with assaulting a police officer: Part of increasing Capitol Hill crackdown on voices of dissent Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., President of the Hip Hop Caucus, was released from custody yesterday evening, after his arraignment. He is charged with assaulting a police officer and disorderly conduct outside of the hearing room on Capitol Hill where Gen. Petraeus gave testimony on Iraq this past Monday. Rev. Yearwood gave this statement yesterday after his arraignment hearing: "My role is to make government more transparent to the people, especially people of color. How am I supposed to convince other African-Americans to come to Capitol Hill to participate in democracy, when Capitol Police will go so far as to jump me when I question my exclusion from a hearing that is open to the public? We all know what ‘driving while Black‘ is, well I would call this ‘democracy while Black.‘ Rev. Yearwood was being excluded from the hearing room, because, according to the lieutenant on the scene, he was not in line. Witnesses attest to the fact that Rev. Yearwood was in line, but he was denied a blue post-it note ticket without reason when Police handed them out down the line shortly before they started letting people enter. Rev.

Fri, 20 Jul 2007 10:28:00 +0000Greetings everyone and welcome to another episode of the Hip Hop War Report. Today we have a very special episode. We humbly ask for everyone in the Chicago area to go out and support Aaron Patterson this morning. Aaron's sentencing hearing will be held today in Chicago. Aaron Patterson has been framed yet again by the Federal Government and the Chicago Pig Department. Please go down to 219 S. Dearborn, Room 2119 in Chicago IL this morning at 9am and be heard. No Justice, No Peace, and demand immediate release for our brother! As for the podcast, we have commentary from world renowned journalist, author, and death row political prisoner, Mumia Abu Jamal. Mumia speaks on the case of Texas Death Row Inmate- Kenneth Foster, who is also wrongfully scheduled to die on August 30, 2007. Please pay close attention to his case and give your support. Finally we have DJ GI Joe. This DJ is no stranger to the WAR REPORT, and he gives us a preview of "Underworld Volume 3".. Joe also gives us and exclusive interview on his thoughts regarding Mumia's appeal hearing on May 17 in Philly. The Underworld keeps its tradition boasting some of the hottest underground emcees in the game. Exclusive never heard before music from Immortal Technique ft. Bootcamp Click, Poison Pen, Diabolic, Laelo Hood Ft. Payshir, NEMS and a host of others! 31 tracks and we play a few for you to sample. Please support this real hip hop! Please read regarding Aaron Patterson Aaron Patterson Targeted in Police and Fed Frame-up By Caryl Sortwell Chicago, IL - When ex-death row inmate Aaron Patterson was pardoned by Illinois Governor George Ryan in January, 2003, he came out of prison vowing to fight for justice. Within hours of his release, Patterson spoke at a Chicago anti-war rally. The next day he was a featured speaker at an anti-police frame-up community forum hosted by Comite Exigimos Justicia. In the months since his release, Aaron Patterson has proven to be a tireless and inspiring leader in the struggle against Chicago police misconduct, brutality and torture. He emerged as the city’s single most important leader of this fight. This made Patterson an irresistible target for the Chicago police and the U.S. Justice Department. On Aug. 5, Aaron Patterson was arrested by the Chicago Police Department and Federal Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents. Patterson was charged, along with Isaiah Kitchen and Mark Mannie, with conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and firearms. Patterson is not charged with possession of drugs or guns, rather the prosecutors are alleging that he intended to become involved in illegal activities. According to the federal government, it is involved in this case because it is able to seek sentences that are much greater than those administered at a local level. Aaron Patterson, if convicted, could face life in prison and millions of dollars in fines. The source of the government’s evidence against Patterson is derived from an informant who is known by the street name of Fox. Fox was arrested in November 2003 for possession of over $100,000 in drugs and was facing a possible 30-year prison sentence. Yet Fox never went to prison, because he told authorities he could deliver Aaron Patterson to them. In March, under guidance from the Justice Department, Fox initiated contact with Patterson and taped a series of conversations with him, for which Fox was paid $6000 by the government. According to Patterson, he knew all along that he was being targeted and taped by the government through Fox. At the same time that Fox was taping Patterson, Patterson was taping Fox. He was trying to trap the government agents who were trying to entrap him. As he told the Chicago Tribune, “I got videotapes, I got license plate numbers of undercover cars. Serial numbers for all the money. Everything.? Whether Patterson’s evidence of his entrapment will be helpful to his defense is unclear, since federal agents removed loads of evidence from his mother’s home the day of his arrest. [...]
Sun, 13 May 2007 14:35:00 +0000Greetings everyone and welcome to a special edition of the Hip Hop War Report. There has been a lot going on in the news and we do our best to give it to our people straight. The first part of this podcast is provided by Digital Dex from the www.mixtapeshow.net This is not a simple interview, and its definitely not just another episode. This is a condensed version of a hour long special provided by the mixtapeshow.net. I encourage all War Report listeners to go to www.mixtapeshow.net and get the full episode During the last few weeks, Hip-Hop has been under serious fire from the mainstream media, not only because of the backlash following Don Imus termination, but the more recent 60 minutes interview featuring Camron and Anderson Coopers interpretation of the Stop Snitching mantra. So in order to bring some clarity to the situation, I spoke to several different community leaders, all of different backgrounds. Featured guests are as follows: Aishah Simmons An African-American feminist and activist documentary filmmaker, producer of the award-winning No!: The Rape Documentary, and perhaps best known to longtime listeners of the Mixtape Show as the older sister of Atlantic Recording artist DJ Drama (previously interviewed here). John Robinson also known as Lil Sci a producer, MC, and President of Shaman Work Recordings, which has put out releases from artists such as Emanon, CL Smooth, and MF Doom. Willie Da solo artist and core member of one of the most influential rap groups to ever come out of the South, the Geto Boys. Davey D Hip-hop historian, journalist, deejay, and community activist, whose website, Davey-D's Hip-Hop Corner, is one of the oldest and most respected Hip-Hop sites on the net. The second part of the podcast is a very special interview with Brother Jay from the X-Clan. Brother Jay speaks on conscious hip hop and its ability to reach people. He also expresses his views on the upliftment of people through unity. Brother Jay gives his opinions on the Iraq War and how the people have giving up on the system. We also bless you with some exclusive X-Clan from their latest album titled Return from Mecca available on www.Xclanmusic.com Finally we have political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal speaking on decolonization and how the same struggle is fought on a global front. We are very blessed to have Mumia's voice to enlighten our struggle right here on the Hip Hop War Report. Thank You MUMIA! FREE MUMIA ABU JAMAL! Please make note of this date on your calendars! MAY 17: ALL OUT IN PHILADELPHIA IN SUPPORT OF MUMIA! On May 17th Mumia's case will be reviewed by The Third Circuit Court Of Appeals in Philadelphia to decide whether Mumia gets a new trial, life in prison without parole, or execution. The whole world is watching how The Third Circuit will rule. We must let them know where we stand: Only Mumia's release or a new trial is acceptable! MAY 17 WILL BE THE START OF AN ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL STAGE IN THE STRUGGLE FOR MUMIA'S LIFE AND FREEDOM. For more info click these links: www.mixtapeshow.net www.xclanmusic.com www.freemumia.com [...]

Tue, 27 Feb 2007 08:58:00 +0000Greetings and welcome to this special edition of the Hip Hop War Report. Today we bring to you a podcast based on the most important thing in your life: YOUR HEALTH!. The War Report has teamed with KhaazRa MaaRanu from www.dpeeps.com and www.holisticperspective.net to get his insight on the topic of "gene mutation". KhaazRa breaks it down into common terms so we can all understand the importance of this topic. The Hip Hop War Report is dedicated to keeping the public informed with truth. In order to enjoy a healthy life we have to change our eating habits and at least recognize what is bad for our bodies. We start this podcast with great words from the world renowned journalist and political prisoner, Mumia Abu Jamal. Mumia weighs in on the topic of global warming. This piece is titled the "Planets Death Row". Please take time to listen to the facts and truth about this very serious problem.I would like to give you this information passed on to me by a War Report correspondent, Da Da the Goldenchild. Its a comparison between WATER and COKE. You be the judge!WATER#1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.(Likely applies to half the world population.) #2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.#3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.#4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study. #5. Lack of water, is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.#6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.#7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page. #8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%., and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer. Are you drinking the amount of water you should drink every day? COKE#1. In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.#2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke and it will be gone in two days. #3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china.#4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.#5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion. #6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.#7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy. #8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield. FOR YOUR INFORMATION:#1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis. #2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial trucks must use a hazardous Material place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.#3. The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean engines of the trucks for about 20 years! Now the question is, would you like a glass of water? or Coke?For more information about this podcast click these li[...]

Today is a double episode that features new music from AKIR in memory of Sean Bell who was murdered on his wedding day by the NYPD. HIP HOP WAR REPORT EPISODE 7.1 POCC: Block Report Radio interview political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal Hip Hop War Report Correspondent Minister of Information JR of POCC: Block Report Radio interviewed Black Panther political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal about the 25th year of his unjust incarceration, as well as, the 40th Anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party. During the interview, he gives his opinion on Black Panthers who are still in the battle for human right and self determination, as well as, on those that have “retired? from the Movement. He talks about how he believes conditions in the poorest parts of Black Amerikkka have gotten progressively worst than they were in the 60’s. Mumia also goes into the mainstream media’s portrayal of the Party, and how it’s coverage was not surprising, and how leftwing authors including Charles Jones’ “The Black Panther Party Reconsidered?, and his own book “We Want Freedom? have done a lot to “open up perspectives?. Mumia gives his reflections on the late great cofounder of the Black Panther Party, Minister of Defense Huey P. Newton, as well as his opinion on the relevance of the Black Panthers 10 Point Platform today, in the Black community. Mumia goes on to discuss how it is “as important as life or death? for journalist to cover stories that aren’t being covered as well as offer a progressive opinion to stories that are being picked up by the mainstream. He discusses the war of terrorism in Iraq, and how the media pushed people into supporting a bogus war among other things. It is important that listeners of the Hip Hop War Report and POCC: Block Report Radio support the unconditional release of political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal, recognizing that he is one of the most revolutionary and articulate voices in the media, of our generation, as well as, his so-called trial was plagued with unfairness, including the refusal to admit the confession of Arnold Beverly into evidence, the dismissing of potential Black jurors simply because they were Black, police coercion of witnesses, and ballistic tests that state that the caliber of the bullet that killed Faulkner was not the same caliber of bullets that fit Mumia’s gun, among other things. Listen to this edition of the POCC: Block Report Radio on Hiphopwarreport.com and we have to end this with Free All Political Prisoners!

They also explained that the basketball tournament will be happening on December 10th ‘06, at Poplar Park in West Oakland, and will feature rap acts like Beeda Weeda, Kaz of the Team, Mistah F.A.B., the Pack, Team Thunder, and more.
