Every four years athletes and audiences from around the globe come together to celebrate and compete in the international sporting event - The Olympics. In 1972, just forty years ago, the Olympic games were unfortunately the target of a terrorist attack in Munich Germany, when Black September, a Palestinian terrorist group, snuck into the Olympic village and kidnapped and killed 11 Israeli Athletes. Later that same year, Operation Wrath of God commenced - a strategic mission that unleashed attacks in retaliation to Black September's actions and resulted in the death of the terrorists involved in the Munich massacre.
At this year's Olympic games in London the IOC denied a moment of silence in the opening ceremony for the 11 Israelis that were killed in Germany. The absence of any acknowledgment of the Munich massacre became the source of much discontent in the Jewish community and Jewish American gold medalist Aly Raisman even spoke out against the failure to acknowledge the 11 Israeli victims.
Kosha Dillz, an American Israeli rapper, penned the song "Munich 72" to not only remember the fallen athletes of Israel, but also illustrate a detailed description of how each terrorist was murdered. "Munich 72" is intended to call attention to the evil deeds committed so that such an act of hatred may never happen again at an event celebrating world peace and healthy competition.

First of all, I got my money back from Uncle Louie! Thank you so much for your support and your help in putting pressure on him. I couldn't have done it without you.
In other news, I'm working on putting together a Best of Sudden Death 2-CD compilation album. The plan is to fund it with a Kickstarter campaign and release it at Con on the Cob.
After deciding what songs I wanted to put on it several people on Facebook started giving me input about their favorite songs and I realized they didn't match. So I set up a poll. What are your favorite Sudden Death songs, and which ones do YOU want included on this album?
I'm planning a couple special things such as some updated versions of a couple songs. There will also be a third digital-only compilation with additional content for Kickstarter supporters. And yes, one of the rewards will be "all the albums" (digitally).
I plan to master the songs from Fatal Accident Zone that are included. Older songs, wherever possible, will be remixed and remastered from whatever source materials I can find.
I've got some cool stuff planned for this release. Tune in to the next episode of The Insider for details, and keep an eye out for the Kickstarter campaign which will be launching soon.
Two of Long Island's most celebrated emcees, the god Rakim and the legendary R.A. The Rugged Man, spent yesterday at Manhattan's No Mystery Studio working on new music together. In this clip, the pair chop it up about Rakim's contentious history with Big Daddy Kane, including the fateful phone call that prevented the feud from escalating. R.A. and Ra are working on a song for a movie soundtrack, and will soon be shooting a music video for the track. More details on the project coming soon.
