FREE ASKARI X !!
From his ascent to the legendary status of pioneering Bay Area Rap Artist to his alignment to the Struggle for liberation of Black People, Askari X has been a target. Throughout his years in the 41510 (Oakland Sf Bay Area) Askari has gone in and out of prison for whatever reason the OPD (Oakland Police Departement) could find. The Revolutionairy songs and his workings with NPDUM nowInPDUM and the Ansars Askari educated many Black Youth on Revolution. Starting with the Ansars, then continuing to the RBG's Askari was at the forefront of conscious music. Askari's first album Ward of the State released in 1992 put down the RBGs. Righteous Black Guerrillas waaay before it was coined by the NY group Dead Prez. The DPz to their credit have continued the struggle even reaching out to Askari in the past years.
OPD and the government has been keeping Oakland, and Revolutionaries out here down. What would have been if Askari was not locked in the hells of Amerikkka.
This video is taken from the "Race for the Times" documental.. Askari with his mother, at the Uhuru House in Oakland Ca. Look for the doc, coming to a hood near you.
All power 2 the people, Black Power to the Afrikan Community !!
