Trailer: “Into The Light” Featuring Jay Electronica

Written by Nigel D. / 10.13.14

Jay Electronica is full of mystery, and like a magician, his character lends itself to new ways of seeing things that would seem impossible to many. Several years ago, Jay and I traveled to the other side of the Earth. We left a piece of ourselves there. In exchange, we brought back something entirely new, and the images that follow are a glimpse into that magic for everyone who’s curious.

Minister Louis Farrakhan Releases A Letter About Jay Electronica’s Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival Performance

Written by Nigel D. / 07.22.14

A Special Message Regarding Jay Electronica’s July 12, 2014 Performance at The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival in New York

Special Note—After making this statement, Minister Farrakhan wanted to impart the following to the readers: “Below is just a humble and loving communique to all who are followers of Islam and students of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad under my leadership. And to all of our people who knowingly and unknowingly are involved in a process bigger than themselves (The Resurrection).”

I am very proud of the Fruit of Islam (F.O.I.) and the Believers who stood with Brother Jay Electronica as he delivered what he delivered to the people gathered in Brooklyn at The Hip Hop Festival in New York.

I understand that some criticized Brother Jay Electronica’s use of profanity while wearing the uniform of the Fruit of Islam (F.O.I.) of The Nation of Islam. I humbly and respectfully ask: Has any of us who have accepted Islam and its required high degree of moral excellence and civilization ever said or done anything that is less than representative of what we believe? I am sure that all of us, if we are honest, would have to say that we have. Is the uniform that represents us as the Muslim Girls Training and General Civilization Class (M.G.T.) or F.O.I. more important than that which we say we believe and should represent 24 hours a day? If we violate our own teachings or make mistakes in how we handle our teachings and ourselves with respect to our moral teachings, do we not expect and desire Allah (God) to be forgiving and merciful to us, particularly if we petition for His forgiveness? Of course we do. (Read Holy Qur’an, Surah 26 “The Poets,” verses 78-82 – Abraham speaking of and to The Lord of The Worlds)

In closing: I was one of the 85 Percent, according to our Lessons, deceived by the 10 Percent; but when I met the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and bore witness to him and The Great Mahdi, Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praise is due forever, I became one of the 5 Percent, “The Poor Righteous Teachers,” who know The Law of Cause and Effect, and are busy every day teaching the 85 Percent that are victims, slaves and tools of the wicked 10 Percent.

So, if someone offered me what Brother Jay Electronica was offered by Brother Jay Z, I too would accept it with the biggest smile on my face, for I too, as all of us in The Nation of Islam, are The Five Percent: Poor Righteous Teachers who are called to teach the 85 Percent, and free them from the chains of slavery and subservience as tools of the 10 Percent.

May Allah’s peace be with all of us, and may He grant us forgiveness for any shortcomings that we may have and have manifested. And if it is The Will of Allah, I hope that I will soon meet Brother Jay Electronica to guide him in The Great Work that I know he will do for The Cause of Islam.
– Minister Louis Farrakhan
