I’m no afficionado or learned critic of rap music, but from where I’m sitting, [the genre] fits Islamic terrorists like a glove.
Consider the following from a family-oriented source providing information about the propaganda of the Islamic Mein Kampf:
Followers of the ideology also produce content that supports the goals of violent Islamists. One of the most well-known examples is the rap video “Dirty Kuffar” (Kuffar means “nonbeliever”), which was downloaded onto millions of computers or watched online. In the video, the rapper, waving a gun and a Koran, praises bin Laden and the 9/11 attacks and disparages
Western leaders with lyrics such as:
Peace to Hamas and the Hezbollah
OBL pulled me like a shiny star
Like the way we destroyed them two towers ha-ha
The minister Tony Blair, there my dirty Kuffar
The one Mr. Bush, there my dirty Kuffar
Throw them on the fire.
The song is performed against a changing backdrop of images of world leaders morphing into animals or fictional characters and scenes of terrorists engaging in military training and attacking coalition forces in Iraq.
It doesn’t seem like it takes much to adapt the Muslim terrorist culture to the American gangster rap culture; in fact, the only difference between them I see is that the former is simply more strategic and international in its vision.
