Mistah F.A.B. Speaks On Oscar Grant Protests:”We Gon’ Keep Going Until Something Is Going Right”

Oakland is still grieving the loss of Oscar Grant, the unmarmed black man who was killed by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle on videotape this past New Year’s Eve.

Initially fleeing the state, Mehserle was later captured in Nevada and has since been charged with murder. He plead not guilty and is presently being held without bail. The citizens of Oakland, including Bay Area staple Mistah F.A.B., are hoping history doesn’t repeat itself and will accept nothing less than a conviction. XXLMag.com recently caught up with the MC to get insight into Oakland’s current state of mind.

“Everybody go to see how cold and how cruel these people that’s supposed to be governing us, how they are,” F.A.B. told XXL. “It was basically, the city is frustrated. This is not the first time that this has happened. Last year alone, the police department had 15 murders alone, just themselves. It was like one of those feelings like, ‘We fed up, dawg.’ And now the whole country, the whole world knows that this is going on, we gon show you how we gon respond.” [Watch Video Below]

“Some cats took it to the streets, rioting, burning up stuff, looting, it was just like, ‘We need some justice,’” he continued. ”And in the words of the old negro song, ‘No justice, no peace.’ We gon’ keep going until something is going right. They arrested the cop, charged him with murder, so now we just seeing if the charges gon’ stick…And hopefully bring some kind of justification to an unjust situation.” -Marvin Brandon

      We can’t really get all that mad about “them” killin us until “we” stop killin ourselves, truth be told.

      They see we do it to each other all day long, so they think they can get away with it as well.

      Fuck the world in general, to get specific with it.

      • NAWLEDGE

        Tony stirkes again.

        COSIGN! Dudes want to get all riled up and start rioting when police officers kill a minority, but we still have crips, bloods, folk nations, people nations, MS-13s, 13th Street Gangs, ABZs, and everything in between. Until all these mofos learn how to stick together, “they” will continue to stay killing “us” off.

  • lookadeez

    And by the way, there is no old negro song called “no justice, no peace”

    lovely posts and lovely video

  • matty21

    I didn’t see the video of this happening, but what happened in the situation or what did Oscar do for the cop to even take this action (Not saying anything justifies murder if he’s unarmed but im just curious). Something had to have happened though. And on another note, 15 murders by the police in a year is not very high in my opinion considering criminals or patrons firing back. I would of thought it was higher, don’t forget police have to protect their safety.

    Just let the process work. He pulled a gun and got caught up in the moment. Those dumb kids breaking 24 Hour fitness windows, and immigrant small business owned stores don’t help. The speaking out and demanding justice does. I’m sure a 2nd degree murder charge will go through and he will get a jail sentence something along the lines of OJ’s in terms of length…

    ——————————————–P.S. I thought DJ Rayz chain was stolen.

    See that! I started a rumor- just like Him!!

    Forgot, DJ Rayz can’t afford a chain.

    It’s possible if Fab was without a chain then he was wearing a new one. He gets a new one each year 75-100K value.

    The real issue: Premeditated murders mostly black on black- over and over, every day, every month, every year. Most of the homicides are hatefull over drugs, girls, money, and pride. Oscar’s was the result of something different- when you have a “pack” mentality. The cops have it when there are two many huddled together at a event and gangs have it when they beat down someone they catch. Regardless it’s quite evident the cop was stupid, pulled and shot from instinct. It’s not even like the NY cases where a group of cops shot off 40 or 50 rounds.

    You never got the young high school and college kids regulating or mass demonstrating here in the Bay when this number of homicides occured in the sampling of Bay cities.

    My sampling was limited and down within a few
    hours with legitimate sources. Of course sometimes within a year of release homicide counts are altered by one or so. A few years I left blank as I couldn’t locate the correct #

    How hypocritical is it when thousands of rappers brag about drug, gun, killing exploits, and then hide behind “I’m just telling what I see. ” Then kids improperly use protests to tear up the city.Fab speaks out in the right way and is a good example. But the Bay has been cought in this “I’m going to protest anything because i feel the need for inclusion” mode for 40 plus years. The time to speak out is when people are killing people, not to get on tv over one case. A lot of the same people who weren’t popular in school come to the Bay and enjoy protesting anything they can because they think it’s the thing to do. The real problem is what goes down on a day to day, not that a dumb cop pulled a gun when perhaps he thought it was a taser. I believe justice will be properly served but it’s time to stop the day to day killing. I don’t believe it will happen but I challenge the citizens of the bay to take personal responsibility for their actions. No political changing of the guard does that for you, and no individual head of state can stop you from killing. Notice how Gavin Newsom said he would stop the crime in SF but it has severly escalated since Willie Brown left office. Mayor Dellums in OAK is doing his best but he nor Jerry Brown could stop it. If you have broken the commandment or are friends with someone who did, don’t attend one single rally to destroy business property or peoples cars, start fires, etc over a freak accidental killing.
