Al Qaeda is the new Koch

Rappers who can’t make it the old fashioned way might want to consider getting down with the terrorists. I’m assuming that’s what Loon just did.

The other day, there was that video of Loon on Al-Jazeera. Maybe you saw it. I’m not gonna lie – I didn’t bother watching it myself. There’s only so many hours in a day, and World Star really has been stepping its game up, as far as its cam hoo-ers are concerned. DJ Vlad might be making some important contributions to journalism, but he needs to get some hoo-ers shaking their asses. I can’t imagine it costs very much money, in this economy. A lot of broads do that shit for free anyway, just for the attention. Or, so I’ve been told.

But I digress.

I wouldn’t necessarily have thought anything of Loon growing his beard out, putting on a funny hat and going on Al-Jazeera to spread his message of peace (natch). Plenty of rappers before him have embraced Islam in some form or another, whether it’s what I like to call prison Islam, which, as far as I know (I’ll have you know I took two classes on religion in college, plus I read that Christopher Hitchens book), bears very little resemblance to genuine, according to Hoyle Islam; or the kind of Islam they practice over in the Middle East, with the weird sex issues and what have you – terrorist Islam, if you will; or some sort of hybrid between the two. Maybe Loon saw in it the same thing the rest of those clowns did. He’s just went a little bit deeper, because it’s not like he’s got shit else better to do.

Then I read a series of posts over on my boy Combat Jack’s site, Daily Mathematics (which has been recently redesigned, btw), and, come to find out, Loon has almost certainly been recruited by the terrorists. This is just the latest development in their ongoing effort to recruit from the black community here in the US, and the hip-hop community in particular. I’ve been reporting on it for this site going way the fuck back to 2006, when I was having some issues with Lupe Fiasco. You’ll recall that bin Laden had a tape out at one point, specifically targeting the hip-hop community. He quoted Malcolm X, which probably would have gone over better, if it didn’t just so happen to be during the height of the minstrel rap era. What did he think this was, 1992?

The smoking gun in this case comes at the very end of Combat Jack’s series of posts. And if you know anything about the man’s writing style, you have to wonder how many people even made it to that point. I’m not saying he shouldn’t write as much, if that’s what he wants to do. I’m just saying. He buried the lede! Once you get past all of the parts about how Loon was some dumb kid from the hood, and he could have made a shedload of money, but instead he ended up getting ripped off, which I could have told you, and I hardly know anything about Loon, it’s revealed that Loon almost certainly isn’t sincere in his conversion to Islam. In a series of posts on Facebook earlier this year, he mentioned how he was on his way to Saudi Arabia to meet with some people who realize his potential as an artist, how he was finally about to achieve the level of wealth he’d been striving for, and how he was about to make some real A-rab money.

Of course, the dead giveaway is the fact that he has no potential as an artist. That was already determined 10 years ago. If people like Ma$e and Diddy and Clive Davis couldn’t get him to sell any records, how in the fuck are bin Laden and ‘em going to? While the global outpouring of grief over the death of Michael Jackson reminds us that people outside the United States have bizarre tastes in music, I seriously doubt these people heard the Harlem World album and saw a money-making opportunity. These Arabs already own half of our country. What the fuck do they need with the proceeds from a Loon album? Then there’s the fact that Loon made the mistake of going on Facebook bragging about how he was about to get that A-rab money. Which not only would ostensibly be offensive to his new benefactors, but it wouldn’t seem to jibe very well with his supposedly pious religious beliefs, as evidenced by the beard and the silly hat.

Loon must have realized how much money he could make as a recruitment tool for the terrorists, got excited and flew off half-cocked. As Tom Breihan would say, you can take the ninja out of Harlem (in this case, far away from Harlem), but you can’t take Harlem out of the ninja.

          It’s all good…like I said I find it flattering that someone would take the time. I was laughing my ass off when I first saw it.

    If they really wanted to recruit someone, shouldn’t they have picked a rapper that at least one person wants to listen to? Just one?

    That prison Islam is a force to be reckoned with. I have quite a few convict friends (that doesn’t sound right, does it?) & half of them stay in & out of the Pen on that Muslim shit.

    No arabic, no Koran, a couple I’ve seen pray 5 times, but my wife points out that it’s never to the east. I guess when a person reaches rock bottom, they turn to a religion they can adhere to. Islam, to me, is as convuluted as christianity. Due to its widespread influence, & subsequent tampering.

    But, Loon is most assuredly living up to his name @ this point in life. Maybe he’s should change it to Sane, & impose a litle manifest destiny.

        I was making a generalization based off the specific individuals I know personally, in reference to Bol’s theory regarding “prison Islam”. Not the religion itself, per se.

    -There’s nothing in Islam that says you need to be a poor monk. You can be Muslim and ball out of control, and get all the money you can…Just one of the many absurd ass points made.

  • Enlightened

    Bol, y’all missed the point.

    Loon disappeared some years back.
    Then Rhymefest the Muslim came on the scene with Kanye.

    Now, he wanted to go back to being Loon, so he made up the story about converting to Islam so he could use his true identity.

    LOON AND RHYMEFEST ARE THE SAME PERSON LOL

    I just cracked the case.

    • latino heat

      @ Enlightened
      Loon couldn’t be half as dope as Ryhmefest on his best day.

  • http://www.myspace.com/emcdlthemusicprofile EmCDL

    The reason why Loon ain’t never pop off is because he’s just a copy of Mase….low budget copy at that. He sounded like him but didn’t have the lyrics like him…nobody was checking for dude. Seems like he getting desperate for attention messin’ with the Arabs…

  • $ykotic

    Y’all gotta remember that Loon & Puff’s fathers used to run together in Harlem. That was more of a hook up.

    But something ain’t kosher about this whole situation.

    • Silly Willy

      Definitely !!! Not even halal if you ask me….

  • Mutada al sader the king

    I don’t understand how a Christian or a Muslim can have anything to do with Hip Hop. The lifestyle, imagery, music and lyrics are in 100 percent opposition. Especially Christianity, the bible is explicit this in a number of passages. (1john 2:16,Ephesians 5:3-5,Galatians 5:19-21,1 Corinthians 6:9-11 etc) People justify it one way or another, explain it away either due to ignorance or willfully lying to themselves. But most of what’s i hip hop is diametrically opposed to both religions.

    So lots of us are hypocrites, I aint got nothing bad to say about Loon

    • Silly Willy

      Perhaps the problem is YOUR definition of hip-hop……..So, pretty please, with sugar on top, care to explain what the fuck you talkin’ about, ……king???

      • Brahsef

        Maybe its the sexism, selfishness, violence, greed, glorifying selling of drugs and murder, etc which have been themes in the majority of rap songs since the 90s.

        And in no way am I saying I dislike hearing about those topics in a hot 16, but it’s plain ignorant if you think hip-hop as a whole is faithful to Christianity or Islam.

        Unless you only listen to Talib, Common, and other socially conscious rappers.

        • Silly Willy

          My point exactly !

          I mean, hip hop is an artform, a form of expression for various topics. Basically, every aspect of life and society can be talked about in hiphop culture. I’m not sayin’ it’s faithful to a religion. I’m just sayin’ callin’ people hypocrites because they like hip hop AND have values that are related to one religion or another is plain dumb.

          And seeing how many rappers are actors when it comes to that sex-drug-violence theme, you can enjoy the way they depicts the fictional situation, if only for rhetorical and linguistic aesthetic, or use it to raise awareness about the problems in your society, or get knowledge, or teach your kids what not to do, or relax and get away from your problems for a minute while kickin’ it in the club, or whatever.

          But that doesn’t make you hypocrite !!! It makes you a lover of that particular artform because it connects with you in some way, and help you understand, enjoy, or even get away from the environment you’re in.

        • Brahsef

          I can respect that. The only thing is that I think with the current crop of hip-hop it’s hard to raise the awareness about the problems in your society theory. It doesn’t really have that other side to the glorification of the criminal aspect. Once again, I’m not saying I dislike that….my favorite genre of rap is prolly coke rap such as the clipse.

          I just personally think music and religion unless its gospel or godawful christian country music should be kept completely separate from religion. But enough…I feel we’re arguing the same point with minor differences.

    I don’t understand how just sending negative vibes to rappers, DJ’s, video chicks – throwing hate at everyone who’s more involved in hip-hop than you are – is credible or relevant. When you spend your days working at a Wal-Mart in St. Louis and going home to your computer, never setting foot in the hip-hop world…That’s the lamest thing about Byron Crawford, the thing that makes him such a sad soul, is that he’s not a part of it. He doesn’t ever interview anyone, he doesn’t set-foot in New York City. When I make my jokes or I go on and critique artists, the next time I go out to an event I know there’s a chance that I’m gonna run into them and be confronted on whatever I said. That’s a risk I run.

    How’s everything going with your buddy Byron Crawford?

    See, you’re on point, ‘cos this is the one place where I would actually feel comfortable mentioning that fuckin’ losers’ name is on your site, because I know it’s a specific audience that already knows who that dude is, because the last thing I wanna do is give that fuckin’ dude shine. The one thing that everyone has in common that he’s talked shit about is that no one knows who he is when he does it. Everyone’s like, ‘Who is fuckin’ Byron Crawford?’ Including me! I didn’t know who he was. Asher Roth hit me one day, ‘Who’s Byron Crawford? He said some really crazy shit about me’. I’m like, ‘Homey, that’s what he does. Just don’t say a word about the dude because the only reason he says it is so you’ll respond’, and that fuckin’ makes him think his dick is bigger is if someone like Asher Roth would respond. I sonned the dude because I never gave him the response that he wanted. But honestly, people like Byron Crawford, the saddest thing about it is they think that they’re contributing to the game. I don’t understand how just sending negative vibes to rappers, DJ’s, video chicks – throwing hate at everyone who’s more involved in hip-hop than you are – is credible or relevant. When you spend your days working at a Wal-Mart in St. Louis and going home to your computer, never setting foot in the hip-hop world…That’s the lamest thing about Byron Crawford, the thing that makes him such a sad soul, is that he’s not a part of it.
