Puerto Rico is the oldest colony in the western hemisphere. It was a colony of Spain for almost 400 years and has been a colony of the US since 1898. Throughout that whole time Puerto Ricans have fought for their freedom. In the 1930′s the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party, led by Don Pedro Albizu Campos, came to prominence by directly and openly challenging US authority in Puerto Rico. The US responded with increased repression against the Nationalists in the form of arrests, imprisonment and murder.
October 20th, 1935 the founder and leader of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party Don Pedro Albizu Campos gave a radio address in which he criticizes a program to “Americanize” the University Of Puerto Rico that is being instituted by US colonial interests. A group of students in support of the measure want Albizu declared “Student Enemy Number One”.

On the morning of September 3rd, 2013, a long time acquaintance DJ Exile, of Dirty Science, dropped a beat tape… along with announcing that he will be upgrading to new beat making hardware. The instrumental album features joints that were never before released… unused beats.. untouched. So… after giving the whole thing a listen and becoming inspired… I went ahead and put this song together to this beat… which is one of my favorites on the album.
Me (Quique Cruz) and Exile go back to the early/mid 90’s. We’ve been on underground mixtapes in the distant past… but, oddly enough, I’ve NEVER had the chance to rock an Exile beat. So… I finished up my coffee and got right to work. This is what I do for fun!

On Wednesday, Aug. 28th, 2013, four members of the once most dominant crew in the Orange County Underground Hip Hop scene, Youth International Party (YIP), released a long overdue comeback collaboration song & video titled “Keep It Kingly.” The song is by Ras Ceylon & Lastman featuring some freestyle chants by Buxaburn and produced byDawit Justice. Needless to say… it was like a breath of fresh air.
As YIP was predominantly a Rasta-minded crew, the song is an expression of those sentiments. Rastas look up to Emperor Haile Selassie, of Ethiopia, as an example of royalty, dignity & nobility. Hence, the title of the song, “Keep it Kingly.”
WATCH THE VIDEO:
After seeing the video on the day it premiered, I was inspired. I, being one of the founding members, felt it was my duty to salute my fellow YI’s with a response song & video. I proceeded to make the necessary calls to get ahold of the instrumental & acapella for their song. I wrote a 16 bar verse that touches on our history in OC and also expresses a different concept of what “Keep it Kingly” means to me, as a Five Percenter.
By the following Saturday morning my verse was written and all the files that I needed to make my response was in my inbox. I went to work! In less than 12 hours I recorded, mixed, mastered, uploaded and released the song… and shot, edited, uploaded and premiered the video! I was in Full-Time-Grind mode!
In the video, which is nothing spectacular, since I only shot a couple takes and avoided using special effects, I’m standing in front of a garage door with the number 11. The 11th letter in the alphabet is K… and in the Supreme Alphabet, K stands for King or Kingdom. A king is a man that rules his kingdom in righteousness. A king lays down the law of the land. A king takes care of and protects the people within his kingdom (home). A King is a man who loves and respects his Queen!
So with all that being said… WATCH MY RESPONSE VIDEO!

From the album “FACE THE FACTS” Featuring:Ras Kass, Rakka Iriscience, 2Mex & Termanology… Scheduled for release late July 2013.

[Oscar Lopez Rivera]
by Seven 30 (The Problem)
Seven 30 rhymes from the perspective of Puerto Rican Political Prisoner… Oscar Lopez Rivera, a former Korea War veteran and recipient of the highest honor in the US Military, the Purple Heart. In 1981 he was charged with seditious conspiracy and was given a 70 year sentence. He has spent 32 years behind bars, 12 of which were in solitary confinement.
To learn more about Oscar Lopez Rivera read his book “Between Torture and Resistance.”
I’m supposed to be independent and represented/
By the star the blue/red and the white pendent/
The promise that was made was a lie just to occupy my land/
From 1890 till recently man/
U can’t imagine what I saw/
I never knew that me speaking of freedom would be against the law now it’s war/
I watched pedophiles come and go murderers come and go/
Rapists come and go but I get denied parole/
After serving 33 you now wanna offer me a plea/
And cop to cop seditious conspiracy/
I guess I’m trapped between torture and resistance/
For instance, the people got my back, but this country doesn’t let em lend assistance/
Instead they open up my mail/
And read it deny me medical attention, what needs correction is these jails/
They won’t let my family post bail/
I’m a prisoner of politics and now the only freedom I know is hell/
The revolution won’t be televised/
Only the lies they telling us cause the lies that they selling us you buy/
But not me! This is for Puerto Rico in case they forgot me/
Cause of the brainwashing the media and paparazzi/
They could’ve shot me but they didn’t they threw me in a prison/
Cut off from any one that would listen/
Put my picture with “TERRORISM” but that’s ain’t the truth man/
I ain’t blow up shit or try to assassinate Truman/
