My last words to Mwenda on his battle against the FDC: “Kill that, kill that Noise”

KRS Shan

MC Shan the rapper who wrote a diss song back at KRS-One back in eighties wrote these lyrics and I will use them to how I feel when I read Mwenda comments of late:

“(South Bronx) Kill that, kill that noise (Repeat x8)” (MC Shan – ‘Kill that Noise’, 1987). That was written and made as an response the track made by KRS-One wrote this verse in the diss against the Juice Crew who MC Shan was a part of: “South Bronx, the South, South Bronx (Repeat x4)” (KRS-One – ‘South Bronx’, 1987). Those diss songs we’re made against each other. First came KRS-One with “South Bronx” with an answer from MC Shan, that was made to silence KRS-One and BDP. Instead he made a career on the answer from MC Shan and Juice Crew. This here is written as my answer to the allegation and direcet attacks from Andrew Mwenda, the editor of the Independent Magazine, and his rants against the Forum for the Democratic Change (FDC). That because his lost mind, need to be addressed, as he is more and more sounding like wild cat, than a poltical editor. Take a look! 

????????????????????????????????????

With that in mind when I read stuff like this from Mwenda, says this:

“During the Second World War, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (perhaps the bitterest enemy of communism) allied with the communist USSR and its brutal leader Joseph Stalin to defeat Adolf Hitler and his German reich. When asked why he could work with such an evil regime, Churchill said he was even willing to go to hell and ally with the devil if that was necessary to defeat Hitler. Today I find myself in the same position as Churchill. I am willing to go to hell and ally with the devil to defeat the extremism and intolerance of the radical faction of FDC” (Mwenda, 03.06.2016).

Well, to put himself in the space of Churchill is brave, as long parts Churchill was opposition and was even demoted, and had to prove his worth after even being a warrior who fought in Sudan, before coming back with his name to Parliament in Britain. Surely Mr. Mwenda has lost that part of Churchill past. That he sets the Communism versus capitalism/western values on the same levels as NRM versus FDC, proves that something is lost in the wind. Mr. Mwenda is forgetting why there are radical factions in Uganda in general, and why there are parts of FDC who are like that, why does the terrorizing the FDC, detaining and torture of FDC leadership? House arrests of MP Michael Kabaziguruka, have after the Martyr’s Day, been under house-arrest again! And the Mwenda, the so-called intellectual wonder why certain men becomes radical?

Does the same Mwenda forget that Mandela was so radical against the Aparteid at one point in the 1960s that he was caught with a gun? The man, who knows how these sort of organizations and actions happens as the oppressive behavior happens without impunity and justice, the people and political parties in opposition have to react, the Presidential Candidate of FDC is behind bars, the party have been for month banned from acting on their will from Constitutional Court, IGP Kayihura have monitored all kind of actions from the FDC. And Mwenda still wonders why there are existing radical parts of the FDC? There should be existing radical political parts in other parties in Uganda, as they are harshly oppressed by NRM Regime, and detained, JEEMA offices was even besieged by the Police during May, Human Rights Organizations raided and the Police not interested in catching the men on the CCTV camera. The lawyers of Amama Mbabazi raid have not been taken in or done anything with these actions.

The proven now loyalty of Andrew Mwenda is with the NRM and the NRM Regime, as he cannot stand the truth and questioning from FDC loyalist, as the FDC are haunted and taken to custody at any moment. The lingering unlawfulness, the reign of terror against the opposition has been at the main stage since February 2016.

MwendaNewNight

He said this in the end of May 2016:

I am running a one man’s war against FDC extremists. They love me, and one of them even drew a nice cartoon of me. So they always show up on this page to read what I write and comment. They don’t argue but only insult. And they think (like Jeb Bush said of Donald Trump) they can insult their way to the presidency. Trump is doing it. They too may succeed if we all don’t join the fight against their Taliban-like politics! God forbid!!” (Mwenda, 31.05.2016).

I am not here to insult you, your noise Mr. Mwenda, you promote corruption, police harassment with impunity, political exploitation and also oppressive behavior, not that the FDC and their leadership is correct on everything. But when the Police make a party headquarter a “Crime Scene”, when FDC activist, FDC Members and FDC leaders are all the time taken to court or detained with or without charges, then you know that there are a war already from the NRM and the Central Government, that is not insulting you or your wisdom Mr. Mwenda, but instead an institutionalized oppression of the FDC. The gravity has hit you. Your words (Mr Mwenda) are now for me noise. Noise, and I ask as MC Shan did in 1987: “Kill that, kill that Noise”. Peace.

PS: here is the song…!

‘The Ecology’ VS ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ – Underrated VS Cultural Icon

fashlamar

It isn’t often I discuss music. Today I got to. Not because Kendrick Lamar dropped a new ‘Control’ verse. This post will be about Kendrick Lamar and Fashawn. Because them both have released albums recently…

First and foremost, I have liked them both as artist K-Dot and Fashawn. Listen to their mixtapes like Section#80 and Higher Learning. Also their great projects like ‘Boys Meets World’ and ‘Good Kid M.A.A.D. City’.

Second there happen a lot over the years. I don’t listen to as much of the dropped music. So this will be more my view of it. The recent lousy projects I have listened to were Kid Inks album and Tygas random project with Chris Brown. They we’re so boring… that I gave up them both after two listening. Let me tell you. I will listen to K.Dots and Fashawns albums for so long. They are both good projects. Still I have some feelings about them.

‘The Ecology’

Let me tell you. The style of Fashawn is so old-school way. Therefore Boys Meets World is like a Boom Bap paradise. The new album is up to day. You can feel the different producers of the tracks. That he has used time to build this one up. The only boring track Confess… is a weak ass of a song. That he wants to tell he is the best man a woman can get. Let me tell you Fashawn is better to explain how he feels about his past and his glories. The way that he lyrically can address the Fresno issues… That’s when he got you blasting the tracks into a blaze. I feel he is so underrated therefore I address him first.

‘To Pimp a Butterfly’

Now let me address Kendrick and his album. This one has been discussed and addressed by all the pundits between the moon and where there is no lights burning. So for me to go wild here would be unnecessary. Let’s say it doesn’t have the same amount of big hits as the first major release. He kind of follows the preaching society issues from Section#80 and the #HighPower agenda. Which is a good thing considering this form a Markie and major artist which is coming from TDE/Aftermath and not some indie label who gets 10K sold over 100 months. So this will be listened to and also make mark on the culture. He got a bigger reach then Fashawn. His star power is gigantic. Therefore he is now addressing that as well as social circumstances. Which is refreshing, he switches between flows and genres so that the listening experience isn’t boring and it grows on you. Get better with multiple listens.

Discussion:  

Fashawn I dig his album and it will be on rotation for a god damn long time. The Same will happen with K.Dot. They are both good. But as a hip hop head. I prefer Fashawn even if he don’t have as many flows and storytelling ways. I keeps it more to formula. That’s why until recently I listened mostly to DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9” with ‘Phryme’. I am that kind of guy. I know that a few of you now expect KRS and the Juice Crew to jump into the screen and dance for you. If not BDP to drop another classic! Well, I am sorry that will not happen. Unless you’re drinking… or smoking some of Snoops righteous spliffs.

And at this point K.Dot can nearly drop any kind of project and be praised. Fashawn can do whatever and be under the radar. Nobody would mind. Therefore I have to root for the underdog. Not to undervalue the progress and the stature of K.Dot, but somebody has to love and enjoy the records of Fashawn. He has also prospered but in a slow way from the indie release until being signed by Nas.

I just wished that Fashawn would have a bigger crowed and honored the way he deserve. The same goes to Killer Mike and all the other lyricists that hasn’t gone platinum. But they gone another direction and doesn’t also ways max out. Nevertheless, as long as they drop quality product, people like me will pick it up and even pay for it.

Big up for K.Dot or Kendrick Lamar who has made it. And dropping great music. Its well deserved!

While I am talking music, where is Mos Def hiding?

Peace.
