ZULU FUNK ALERT! NEW FREE SINGLE BY UZN CHAPTER 206 ZULU KING KHAZM “DRIP DROP DRIZZLE”

Peace,

The following about my Brother was taken from his official Biography – King Khazm has been a formative force in the Seattle Hip Hop scene for years, and his momentum as an artist, emcee and community organizer has only grown since he co-founded MAD Krew in 1995, a Hip Hop crew that quickly evolved into an influential multimedia production company. MAD Krew’s release of the Hip Hop documentary video, ‘Enter the Madness’ in 1998, helped exposed Pacific Northwest Hip Hop to a national view, a scene the crew was pivotal in cultivating through the organization and production of many hip hop shows and events. Khazm produced and co-founded Hip Hop 101, a live weekly television show that exposed local and national Hip Hop artists which broadcasted on regional cable and on online from 1999-2009. Khazm also co-founded Zulu Radio, a weekly broadcast on KBCS 91.3 fm that continues today, dedicated to diversifying the Seattle airwaves with new school, old school, independent, and local Hip Hop.

As an artist, Khazm’s contributions to the culture have been significant as well. Since he began emceeing in the mid/late 90’s and started producing music, he has released various material as an artist and as a record label FCB/MADK; with the likes of Dume41, Khingz, Gabriel Teodros, Suntonio Bandanaz, Specs and others on a number of compilations and projects. He has shared stages with Afrika Bambaataa, Gza, Abstract Rude, Grandmaster Caz, Naughty By Nature, and other Hip Hop legends throughout the country. His breadth and skill as a visual artist fueled his work in graphic design, and his art installations have been featured in various art and graffiti exhibitions, such as Consolidated Works and The Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle.

It was Khazm’s commitment and dedication to Hip Hop culture, paired with his desire to establish and spread a deeper understanding of Hip Hop’s roots, which set the context for his work with Universal Zulu Nation. After receiving recognition for his contributions to the culture from Afrika Bambaataa and the World Supreme Council of the UZN, along with overwhelming community support on the local level, he founded 206 Zulu – UZN Seattle Chapter in 2004.

Khazm’s current pursuits in Hip Hop activism, his participation in the curriculum development and delivery of Hip Hop classes, workshops, panel discussions, and other educational-oriented activities centered on youth empowerment, has led him to a more comprehensive perspective of Hip Hop in the global age and its role in society. In 2006, Khazm received an award for Community Leadership from Seattle Mayor Nickles. Then in 2010, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn honors King Khazm and the Seattle Hip Hop community with an official Proclamation; November as Hip Hop History Month. He aims to expand Hip Hop’s role in youth and community empowerment.

Seattle Hip Hop bedrock King Khazm (MADK & 206 Zulu) springs a leak to the upcoming flood with “Drip Drop Drizzle”, a banging anti-summer, summertime ode to Seattle Hip Hop. Produced by heavy-hitter Bean One and cuts by DJ Tecumseh, this tribute sheds a new light on the famously grey town skies with anthem authority. Poignant bars punctuated by deep, contagious bass (and shouts to an impressive list of Seattle scene cornerstones) make this track a formidable reintroduction of a veteran artist. This initial dip into Khazm’s upcoming musical endeavors captures the artistic foundation of a man that is known locally and nationally for his dedication to culture and community. “Drip Drop Drizzle” is sure to resonate with young and seasoned listeners alike. Enjoy this free debut single, and stay tuned for more to come!

ZULU FUNK ALERT! UZN 5:1 ZULUS CHARTER MALIKA – MIRANDA WRITES’ MIX/CD & THE IMPORTANCE/RELEVANCE OF FEMALE EMCEES!

Peace,

Ever since Sha-Rock we (I) have held female emcees to a certain standard. Goddesses, Wisdoms, Earths, Mothers, Daughters, Queens, Princesses, etc. Women are the guards of the porthole into this plain of existence, the keepers of the birth canal, and the physical fragile tenderness which is the first glimpse into the meaning of life itself to a child! The definition demands accountability.

Sisters such as Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Bahamadia, Rah Digga, Lauryn Hill, and few others have made a mark that puts them in a league of their own in the ranks of crowd control, they can hold their own in the realm of a majority of male counterparts. Seldom seen in mainstream rap music are females who represent woman-hood, the art form, and self respect with an even balance! This (Hip-Hop) is different than any other genre of music, it was developed in the street to report the street honestly and is governed by a code of the streets! Key word, Honestly which means from the heart aka truth, un-tainted by the up keeping of an image or the desired to be perceived as “Real” which is generally fake as a 3 dollar bill! There is not a balance amongst male and female in Hip-Hop, the spotlight immediately goes on “Her” when she steps in the arena! A woman in the music industry is the voice of a sex that has been demanding respect from day one and all of her actions echo “yay or nay!”

Today, in tell-lie-vision, movies, radio, and all of media there is more of an outstanding need for Positive Female Role Models than ever before! Sadly shows like “Housewives of ATL, LA, NY, Orange County, Love and Hip-Hop, Basketball wives, etc” are mis-guiding our little girls into thinking that such lifestyles and treatment are proper aspirations! I recently watched Love and Hip-Hop for the first and last time and was sickened by what I saw, women without knowledge of self, a sense of self worth, and searching for stepping stones rather than being stones too strong for anyone to even think of stepping on! This is why we have a Nicki Minaj. On the opposite side of this coin are Jean Grae, Invincible, Apani, AtLas, Eternia, Pri The Honeydark, Helixx, Kalae, Narubi and the many you do not often hear about that spit fire and/or are apart of The HipHopSisters.com Movement! These sisters are not extinct, they do exist! They exemplify emceeing!

The Universal Zulu Nation is the first family of Hip-Hop, our Malikas have a lot to live up to. Miranda Writes is an up and coming emcee from New Jersey with respect for the culture. She is 17 years old, young, working to master her craft, and an up and coming member of The Universal Zulu Nation as well as the C.E.O of LPD Entertainment (which she owns and manages by herself with the support of her family) recording out of FrankenSound Recording & Rehearsal Studios with Tim Flanzbaum. We (The UZN) support her and we expect the carrying on of a legacy in her work! To emcee is more than putting together a story with words that rhyme or getting a reaction, it is an art form, and a constant work to improve on lyricism and a craft. To emcee is to be a Wordsmith. To be a UZN Emcee is an honor! Her newest project is a Mix/CD called:
“Say My Name” It will be available as a Free Download online for a limited amount of time at http://www.datpiff.com/Miranda-Writes-Say-My-Name-mixtape.385410.html
while the physical copy will have a fixed price which is T.B.A.

The best Nation is a doe-nation!

More often than not, the island of Haiti engenders negative connotations and images resulting from its: devastating poverty, political unrest, and violence. Truthfully, Haiti is an island full of dichotomies. While it’s true that the majority of Haitian people live in undeniably devastating conditions, Haiti’s colorful language, pulsating music, as well as its vibrant and rich culture also characterize the island. It is undoubtedly Haiti’s kind, spirited people and their unrelenting drive to persevere despite all things, which inspired us to form “Inspire Haiti.”
Inspire Haiti was founded by eight individuals exclusively for the charitable, medical and educational purposes of providing relief to the poor. Inspire Haiti’s objective is to improve the living conditions for the majority of Haitians: one person at a time, one community at a time. They aim to do this by building a comprehensive community-based organization focused on empowering the people of Haiti through quality health care, nutrition, education and social reform.
