MCMI Report Yasiin Bey NO Colonial Fiction

MCMI Report Yasiin Bey NO Colonial Fiction – Spotted this on OkayPlayer. Apparently, hours after the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, which are being attributed to ISIS, Yasiin Bey (previously known as Mos Def), did an interview on a radio show called  Ferrari Sheppard‘s A Country Called Earth Acce Sessions. In the interview, Yasiin commented on the Paris ISIS attacks, giving a big “F*CK Off” to ISIS, saying that they don’t represent Islam. He also directed his choice words to “to everybody trying to say ‘see, this is Islam’s fault.‘” Yasiin then goes on to explain,

“The problem is not Islam [or] organized religion. The problem is people’s lack of compassion and caring for themselves and their fellow human beings. “

In the interview, which took place while he was in Germany, Yasiin said,

“Love must and will prevail, I don’t care how corny it sounds,”

and compared the attack to the Tamir Rice shooting and other events of injustice and murder of innocent people.

Yasiin also dropped an unreleased song, NO Colonial Fiction. I don’t know if this is for a specific project, or if it is just a song he had not released before, but he probably knew it would bring attention to his comments. I am a fan, so any new material is always welcome. Let me know what you think of the track, as well as Yasiin’s comments, in the comments section below. Is he on point or off track?

Here is the full interview, from: A Country Called Earth
