The End - 2000 to 2009

Snoop Dogg joins the Nation of Islam

He’s now one step closer to Islam. 😀snoop-dogg-nation-of-islam-louis-farrakhan

Snoop Dogg has revealed he has joined the Nation of Islam after appearing at the religious group’s annual Saviours’ Day event in Chicago.

The rapper, who described himself as the “leader of the hip-hop community”, told followers he would share what he learned with other musicians.

He told reporters that he joined the group because he was “doing what’s right and representing what’s right”.

It preaches self-reliance for black people within an Islamic framework.

At Sunday’s event, the rapper sat on stage while Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan gave a speech.
He said afterwards that listening to the speech from Mr Farrakhan was “about a mirror – it’s about looking at yourself”.

He added: “We’re doing a lot of wrongs among ourselves that need correcting.”

When asked if he had joined the movement he said: “I’m already in the Nation, that’s why I’m here.

“I’m an advocate for peace, I’ve been in the peace movement ever since I’ve been making music.

“My whole thing is not about really trying to push my thing on you.

“It’s just about the way I live, and I live how I’m supposed to live as far as doing what’s right and representing what’s right – that’s why I was here today.”

He would not say when he had joined the Nation of Islam.

Other rappers previously involved with the movement include NWA star-turned-actor Ice Cube.

      Islam does not need snoop. he needs true islam. if he were to die on this perverted belief it would be no different as an idol whorshipper. because they believe that God came in the form of a man (Farad Muhammad) may Allah curse him, and that Elijah Poole the kadhab was a messenger
      of Allah.

      put it this way, say he starts reading about the NOI and things dont make scene to him and he starts to learn about the real Islam. Allah guides whom he will and misguides whom he wills. But you know it will be HUGE news to MR if one of the Ruff Ryders became Muslim……THUR HIS BLOG…

      we cannot judge the merit of an action based on some supposed future outcome….this sort of thinking of the end justifies the means owes nothing to any of the spiritual traditions but is rather the result of marxism and other modernist ways of thinking where the future utopia justifies sending people to the gulags or defending what is wrong.

      Lots of European thinkers justifed what the vulgar Soviets were doing in their own times by saying that it would one day lead to the perfect state where people were free, classless, equal, and fulfilled. That soon the Soviets would make good on their promise of the withering away of the state and the motto of each from each according to his ability to each according to his will but we see now that that did not happen and countless numbers of people died for nothing while the intellectuals justified those who murdered them in cold blood for the sake of statism and stalinism all the while saying it was for some ideal or truth. (Which is why I trust academics and intellectuals about as much as I trust politicians and spiritual leaders.)

      Whatever we know about the Almighty, we can rest assured that He does not justify actions by future outcomes but rather we are held accountable for what we did in terms of the traditional moral code of right and wrong.

      by the way i’m just messing around, i’m trying to sound like a certain type of intellectual….truth be told, i think we all need to admit that we dont control the world or its inhabitants, that we only live so long and to live with others and with ourselves truthfully and in contentment with those limitations. Our egos get the best of us and we struggle to impose our opinions if not worse on others but really, for what? We are merely shadows and soon we will melt away.

      Unbelievable you trash Snoop Dog for joining a form of Islam, then you adverstise his filthy, hateful, anti-anything good for the human race rap on your site. Snoop Dog is what is a good example of what is wrong with the world today. He is a straight up street thug who has been idolized by many. He cheated all law abiding people by making money selling the poison crack to other African Americans causing them to steal, rape, kill to buy the poison. His “gangster lifestyle” is what he is idolized for and it is exactly what caused so many young promising black men to be locked down in the nations prisons. So how can anyone be buying Snoop Dog ringtones and say they are for improving the Black Community. People it can be both ways, be a thug or be in God. You pick it, it is your life, but you can’t serve two masters. WAKE UP!!!!

      hahah! Snoop said: “I’m an advocate for peace, I’ve been in the peace movement ever since I’ve been making music.”

      “Cause its a 187 on an undercover cop!” – Snoop

      Actually Snoop Dogg is credited with making crack and cocaine level out and become less popular due to his music videos heavy emphasis on smoking marijuana.

      You can’t deny that marijuana is far less lethal and deadly than crack and cocaine which were poured into Black neighborhoods by the CIA.

    10. David March 9th, 2009 at 9:33 pm

      Because cocaine use led to using crack, right? Now with less cocaine, their aren’t many young crack heads? How many current rappers “advertise” cocaine at all? Three Six Mafia used to a little bit. I assumed that cocaine might still be popular in today’s Southern black neighborhoods. More popular that is….when compared to other black neighborhoods in the United States.

      Peace, Allah is the God

      According to the teachings of Master Fard Muhammad, teacher of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, ALL ORIGINAL PEOPLE(S) of the Planet Earth are members of the NATION of Islam. The term Lost-Found Nation of Islam in the West, is the official name given to the contingency of descendants of the ORIGINAL PEOPLES in the east; in which most are of African-slaves. It is indicative in this naming that Master Fard Muhammad recognized that the prophet Muhammad’s community was as Maulana Muhammad Ali says in his commentary; a NATION OF ISLAM.

      The Orthodox, Protestants, and Catholics have a history of apathy towards “BLACK” christian theology. Arabs, mostly caucasians, and their European brethen are threatened or dislike the alienation that BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGIES boldly conveys. The Rastafarians are condemned by Christianity and THE NATION OF ISLAM organization(s) is condemned by the so-called orthodoxies of ISLAM. Both groups do not recognize the legacies of “black” Civilization(s), which encompasses in what is now Egypt, Arabia, Iraq, Iran, central Asia, India, China and Japan. They only see such civilizations as savage and subjects. Their (Christianity and Islam) propaganda since after Prophet Muhammad and even the self-appointed apostle Paul were acts of racism( inequalpower over another culture) for millenia. White Jesus (nonhistorically based). White Muhammad (non- historically based).

      Many people(s) of Middle Eastern and European descent share one theme, and that it is that their religion is indigenous to them; ignoring or unaware that ISLAM nor CHRISTIANITY are derived from their culture(s). The Middle Easterner, in this case The red or pale Arab who are muslims condemn “THE NATION OF ISLAM” organization, not recognizing that they are condemning contingency of blackamoors who are apart of the ORIGINAL PEOPLE have actually re-converted to ISLAM. The national Flag of the “NATION OF ISLAM” organization is dedicated for the creed that ISLAM will renew herself in the WEST, where the descendants of african slaves reside.

      This is why the crescent moon faces the WEST coinciding with the ancient prophecies that the SON OF MAN (Quetzacatual, Mahdi etc) will “TRAVEL” to the WEST as LIGHT shining from the “EAST”. Snoop Dogg is not a “REGISTERED MEMBER” of the “NATION OF ISLAM” organization(s); however he knows that he is a natural member of the “NATION OF ISLAM” being apart of the ORIGINAL NATION. This is what the term “ACCEPT YOUR OWN, AND BE YOURSELF” meant. Master Fard Muhammad wrote: What is his own self? His own self is a Righteous-Muslim”. The “his” is the ORIGINAL PEOPLE(S) in the west. The ORIGINAL PEOPLE(S) outnumber UNORIGINAL PEOPLE(S) 11 to 1. Now, I ask “WHICH ONE OF ARE YOU?”

      dang Ra…just add a bit of pixie dust and you could have a real tale there.

    13. Curious April 4th, 2009 at 5:26 pm

      Snoop Dogg makes money out of a porn-series that he produced.

      Why has nobody mentioned his involvement in corrupting media “expressions”?

      he is a pimp.

      @ Ra Shabazz Allah Bey

      Can someone verbally smack this fool – pleease?

      A few points:

      1) The Prophet may peace be upon him, ordered death sentences for anyone who claimed themselves to be Prophets, like Elijah Muhammad, because the prophet may peace be upon him was the seal of the prophets.

      2) Elijah Muhammad’s own son, Warith Deen Muhammad, reverted the majority of the original NOI to orthodox Sunni Islam, the second chapter of the NOI with Farakhan is dying away. Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, and brothers I’ve met personally have converted from this NOI sect, to orthodox sunni islam.

      3) You talk about the liberation of black people like its still the 60s. There are millions of black Sunni muslims in Africa, yeah, ORIGINAL PEOPLE, more ORIGINAL, than you will ever be.

      I’ve tried to read your argument and dissect it, and I realize that I need to ask, What the hell are you mumbling on about?!
