A few weeks back, Minister Louis Farrakhan held a city wide outreach, inviting influential Chicago rappers, industry representatives and street figures to an undisclosed location for round-table discussions on how to curb violence in Chicago and abroad. Longtime friend of FSD, Antwone Muhammad b.k.a. Twone Gabz, played a big part in helping spearhead and organize the event, so we reached out to him for details and to also relay the message of they’ve set out to accomplish.
On Aug 17th & 18th, Minister Louis Farrakhan invited Hip-Hop Artists & Street Organization Leaders to a two day event that began with a powerful message he delivered entitled “Troubled World & What Should We Be Doing;” followed by a dinner with everyone and ended with a group discussion the next day to address the violence in Chicago and abroad. Minister Farrakhan also addressed some of the beefs throughout the music and street community. Some of the artists in attendance to this event included Jay Electronica, Talib Kweli, No I.D., GLC, King Louie, Katie Got Bandz, G Count, Spenzo, Treated Crew, Hustle Simmons, Lil Reese and Fredo Santana. Antwone Muhammad a.k.a Twone Gabz was instrumental in helping to organize this event along with others. This two day event produced a surge of inspiration to many that attended. Minister Farrakhan is currently organizing with others throughout the entertainment industry as well as the street in effort to decrease the amount of violence that is sweeping through Chicago.

I’ll start by saying that this video is very dope. Great concept, dope cinematography, nice shots, hot chicks, fresh gear, cool cars and a crazy plot to boot. What more do you want? “15 Minutes” was released a few months back as the first single from Mic Terror’s long-awaited debut, Fresh Prince of Darkness, and has stayed in our rotation ever since.
We’ve since heard the album in full and can testify that it’s super hot. If you like this single, you’re going to love the album. Today Closed Sessions has upped the project for pre-order, and you can grab it right here, right now. Support local artists, support local labels.
