The Yanadameen Godcast this week features special guest Paul Guthrie who has been studying the teachings of Nation of Islam co-founder W.D. Fard and doing a critical analysis of his teachings.

The Yanadameen Godcast convene to once again to discuss events that have transpired over the past week in the world of current affairs, politics, and hip hop.
After sharing that he voted in the midterm elections, Lord Jamar was in the firing line of a lot of criticism from people who accused him of “wasting his time because voting doesn’t change anything” or that “voting won’t bring down white supremacy”. Lord Jamar reponds to these critics.
In music news, 50 Cent and Ja Rule’s ongoing feud was a talking point again as the two fired off another round of insults at each other. Can there ever be peace between the two?
The final topic of today’s show explores the recent news of the Boy Scouts being rebranded as the Scouts. Is this a move to further push the agenda of “gender fluidity” or “gender neutral” politics? Continue reading
Since revealing that Flipmode Squad has reassembled to record a 20-year anniversary album, the anticipation from fans of hiphop has been off the charts. Rah Digga whet the appetite further by dropping a snippet of a track on Instagram with her verse.
Something less appetizing, however, is the genetically-modified and fake food that has been slowly creeping into our food chain with videos showing all manner of products from cabbage and lettuce to eggs and beef being made and sold to unsuspecting consumers.
Lord Jamar also highlights a recent episode of Dr Phil on which a Black woman claimed to be white; as people were quick to ridicule her and brand her crazy, how is she any different to people who claim to be transgender? Continue reading

Is the practice simply “self-hatred” or do we just have to accept it as part of the culture? This is the question in today’s discussion which goes into what exactly is melanin? Continue reading
We have seen increasing numbers of incidents where white people are calling the police on Black people who are going about their business. From the “BBQ Becky” incident in Oakland that triggered everything off, to the recent case of the white woman who claimed that a 9-year-old Black boy groped her in a store in situation that shared uncomfortable similarities to the Emmitt Till episode.
With the odds overwhelmingly stacked against Black people in outcomes of contact with the police, are white people intentionally calling the police so that they can have Black people murdered without repercussions? Continue reading
