In a “special message to all of my friends in the rap community” released earlier this month, Minister Louis Farrakhan revealed that Jeezy, Rick Ross, Young Thug, and other rappers have been targeted after visiting with him and/or seeking his counsel.
The Nation of Islam leader began his message by stating that his enemies have stalked him in the various cities he visited to promote the twentieth anniversary of the Million Man March, which takes place this October.
“My enemies have been stalking me and my work in the various cities that I have spoken to advise us about the twentieth anniversary of the Million Man March, titled Justice Or Else…I have been watched by members of The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith,” Minister Louis Farrakhan said in a video message uploaded to YouTube. “And in their stalking of me and watching those who embrace me, I’ve noticed that if you come and sit with me and I give you good counsel, good advice, the next thing I know, my brother rapper has been arrested. Such was the case of Young Jeezy after he visited with me. After Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs visited with me. After Rick Ross visited with me…All of a sudden they’ve done something wrong with the law.”
Farrakhan later credited his interview with The Breakfast Club and social media for opening the doors for him to reach a younger audience.
He also informed those in the rap community that it makes the enemy upset when they visit with him, take pictures with him, etc. Lastly, Farrakhan encouraged his followers to clean up their acts and be careful of traps set by the enemy.
“I want to say to my great rapper community, if you know that when you visit with me or take a picture with me, it upsets them,” he said. “I know that they’re trying to put fear into you. ‘Don’t associate with Farrakhan. Don’t give him the value of your image. And the millions of followers that you have.’ Why not? Why shouldn’t they hug their brother…They are not your business. They are mine. So, leave them alone. Your day is fast-approaching…And so, my brothers and my sisters, this is a sign to you. We’ve got to clean up our act. Be careful. Because the enemy is setting traps for you.”
