Dynamite Bruhz on the track. DJ Presyce on the cut. Recorded and Mixed by Amond Jackson for Salem Psalms. Now all we need is to sprinkle in a bunch of quality ATL emcees and this "Wrath of the Siafu" will be done... a perfect hook to put folks on to the OrganizingIsTheNewCool.com Soundtrack and movement. Oh, that's what they did... with a FREE download... and a W. Feagins, Jr. video? Okay then.
'If Hip Hop was a hurricane, then Wrath of the Siafu would be positioned somewhere in the eye of the storm. Wrath of the Siafu, the first single release off of the Organizing is the New Cool Soundtrack is a perfect example of the underlying theme of the documentary film. This thunderous anthem is an amalgamation of 11 of Atlanta's heaviest hitting independent artists who lyrically ambush a hardcore instrumental that will leave the avid Hip Hop connoisseur begging for more! The Dynamite Bruhz produced track features a who's who of internationally respected underground emcees including: StaHHr, Mike Flo, members of The Liuns Den and Craig "Flux" Singleton (co-producer of the film). This is a guaranteed Hip Hop Classic.'

While the Supreme Court hears oral arguments on Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, we are getting an insight to the mindset of sitting Justice Antonin Scalia, who calls the Voting Rights Act, "racial entitlement." The conservative thinking judge and Republicans are all of the same thinking when it comes to civil rights and racism in American.
Comedian and activist Bill Cosby, expressed his views on CNN with correspondent Soledad O'Brien.
"It's just hard to believe," co-panelist, Rep. Connie Mack (R-FL) said. "It's unbelievable."
"I don't think so," Cosby quickly responded. "Not when you look at the President's speech recently."
Cosby, referring to President Obama's State of the Union Address, continued: "To see people sitting down when there are others standing and cheering. I think we have people sitting there who are as bad as the people who were against any kind of desegregation. And then in place of a better America, they want their own sick feelings put across, and it's - it isn't - it isn't a good time, but I think, also on our part as professors and presidents of colleges all over, and in public schools, we need to get the education of the correct history that happened so people can say, 'Yes, this really did happen.'"
