The Prophecy of Hip-Hop by DJ Paradise Gray of X-Clan

"Government Intelligence" is a misnomer. With at least a 30 some odd Billion dollar budget, the pre 911 "Intelligence" Agencies didn''t have a clue about what was going on. In spite of the reports of Arab men at flight schools asking to learn how to fly but not how to land. That was a clue that I would expect the lowest level security guard to alert on. How did they miss that? To borrow a line from Keith Sweat "Something Just Aint'' Right". What I do know is that I''m very uncomfortable with the people who have their fingers on the red buttons. I''m no conspiracy theorist but Bush is looking more and more like Senator Palpatine to me by the day.

Some people may think that rappers are no rocket scientists, but either someone's lying about what they knew or rappers are clairvoyant, because they sure did a heck of alot better job than the government, understanding the danger and possibilities for terrorist attacks on The World Trade Center.

Eric B & Rakim's song "Casualties Of War", released in 1992 on the "Don''t Sweat the Technique" album, Rakim says:

"So now I wait for terrorists to attack,

when a truck back fires, I fire back,

I DUCK FOR SHELTER WHEN A PLANE FLYS OVER ME,

REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR? NEW YORK WILL BE OVER G",

Kamikaze, strapped with bombs,

No peace in the East, they want revenge for Saddam".

Equally prophetic and kinda weird is this next one from Busta Rhymes who seems to stay in the news lately.

(Hip-hop Cointel Pro is on you Busta! Be very carefull, you are probably being set up for a big fall).

Busta rhymes song "Against All Odds" from the 1998 album: "Extinction Level Event (The Final World Front)"

Busta's prophecy is two-fold here, a combination of both of the other examples.

First Busta's E.L.E. cd cover features lower Manhattan (the area where the World Trade Center was located) going up in a large blaze of fire, then at 1.19 of the track (911 backwards) - Busta Says:

"DESTROY ANY ARCH RIVAL, OR ANY CHALLENGER,

MAKE YOU REMEMBER THIS DAY NIGGA, MARK IT ON YA CALENDER,

I''m showin'' you somethin'', you ain''t sayin'' nothin'',

My niggaz make noise like a bunch of volcanoes errupting,

NONE OF Y''ALL NIGGAZ REALLY WANNA WAR,

THE TYPE OF NIGGA TO CRASH MY PLANE IN YOUR BUILDING IN THE NAME OF ALLAH"

No wonder they keep hunting him down like his name was Osama Bin Busta!

And last (but not least), The Coup, their CD cover never got released to the public, however it is still pretty easy to find on the internet:

The planned cover art created in June 2001 for The Coup's "Party Music" album depicts The Coup with an exploding World Trade Center in the background, Coup DJ Pam the Funktress conducts the proceedings with 2 batons as "Boots" Riley handles what looks like a detonator but is actually a guitar tuner. The Cd was released in November 2001 with a different cover after the actual attacks on the World Trade Center.

Could this all just be a coincidence?
