In 1986, urban America (and a growing segment of the rest of the country) was experiencing and repeating the Supreme Mathematics of the 5% Nation of The Gods & Earths. But most of the fans who rhymed along with Rakim that there were “no tricks in ’86 — it’s time to build” from Eric B & Rakim’s breakout single “Eric B Is President“ had no idea of the meaning behind those words.

Elements of the 5% have existed in rap music since Se’ Divine The Mastermind and Jus Allah The Superstar of The World Famous Supreme Team sang “Allah & Justice” on radio station WHBI in the early 1980s.
I’m glad Rizzla finally addressed the Scientology thing but I still raise an eyebrow at how close let the Church get to the NOI.
On the 33rd episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with rapper, actor, producer, director, writer, sports league founder, and all-around legend among legends: Ice Cube. The conversation covers a multitude of subjects and starts at the beginning — with the story of Cube growing up with aspirations of playing pro-football before transitioning into one of the most respected, prolific lyricists of all-time. The trio discusses the origins of Ice Cube classics like “Boyz-n-the-Hood” and “It Was A Good Day,” the booming growth of the BIG3 basketball league, and emcees who had the most impact on Cube coming up and the development of his pen-game.

An anti-Muslim hate group planned an armed protest at an African-American mosque in Texas — but it didn’t go as planned.
The group, the Bureau of American Islamic Relations, or BAIR, has made it a habit in the past to show up at mosques with firearms and intimidate worshipers. In November, armed protesters stalked Muslims in Irving. In December, they again stalked Muslims at the Islamic Association of North Texas.
But on Saturday, the group that makes a show of carrying guns while they surround places of worship was met in-kind at a Nation of Islam mosque in South Dallas, the Dallas Morning News reports.
