Make Our Community A Decent Place To Live
❗️MAKING WORD BOND❗️We must give a major shoutout to Jermaine Gotti; recording artist, producer, publisher and owner of 21st Street Studios. He’s also the cousin of Brother Linton muhammad. In support of the “Make Our Community A Decent Place To Live” Day we hosted last month at King’s Row Apartments, he gave away a free 2 hour studio session to one of the young and hungry artists from Sunnyside that Brother Linton told him about. Last week it happened and it was awesome to witness.
We’ve been consistently building with Jermaine in the Southeast streets for months now and built a bond with him. So he and the “Greedy 1224” squad were chosen to experience being in a high-powered studio like this for the first time.
JGotti opened by sharing jewels with them from his experience in the music industry. Then these young gods went to work with engineer Dre. They went in with focus; they didn’t play around with the time. And they ended up doing two songs. Dre expressed how impressed he was with how much they got done in a short amount of time. They all expressed gratitude for this entire experience and on the ride back home, one of them said, “It feels good to have someone show us love like this. We’ll never forget this.”
Thank you JGotti for giving back in a major way. This generation is not to be slept on. ??
The excitement from “Make Our Community A Decent Place To Live” Day is still high, and we have video footage produced by Shareef Shabazz that includes words and instructions from The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as well as testimonies from the residents of Kings Row Apartments. Be inspired. Be the change!
Watch the footage below from “Make Our Community A Decent Place To Live” Day at Kings Row Apartments produced by Ebony S. Muhammad of Hurt2Healing Magazine!!! The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan teaches that this generation is the BEST and the GREASTEST we’ve ever produced. Salute to the Fruit Of Islam brothers, the MGT-GCC, supporters and sponsors for making this day possible!
While going door-to-door in Southeast Houston with my Fruit of Islam brothers, we had the honor of meeting this beautiful Black woman sitting outside her apartment door; a mother and grandmother. I immediately sat down next to her to ask her how she was doing and she replied sadly, “I am not doing too good at all.” She started sharing many of the problems she’s facing and how she had no desire to even live anymore. Lovingly, we shared with her how Allah (God) says in the Holy Qur’an that He is closer to us than our own jugular vein and that He has not abandoned her.
We discussed how as long as God blesses us with breath in our lungs, He’s letting us know we have something of great purpose to do for His Glory. I let her know how the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan teaches us that Struggle is Ordained and that just like diamonds, gold and pearls had to go through intense heating, cooling, heating, cooling–we too shine brighter when we meet and overcome the struggles instead of succumbing to them…there was much more said that I won’t share but we were blessed to see her entire disposition change and a glow radiated from her beautiful dark face. I was so focused on her that I had no idea our brother Linton Muhammad captured the Before and After. All Praise is Due to Allah!!!!
Look at her beautiful SMILE!!!! She now felt it’s NOT over for her!!! And she promised me that I can come back to eat next to her at Saturday’s “Make Our Community A Decent Place To Live” Day! It’s moments like this that keep us motivated to take what we’ve been blessed to receive to our people in the streets who need life, light, power and hope. We’re humbled to be striving servants. ?? #inspiration #love #community #NationOfIslam
The street soldiers in Kings Row Apartments told us if we do anything for the children, they will back us up. We told them we would, and we’re striving to make our word bond this Saturday (July 22nd) with the “Make Our Community A Decent Place To Live” Day! Free food, empowering information booths, moonwalks, giveaways, music and more for our people! If you live in the area, come through at 4141 Barberry, Houston, Texas 77051 from 3-6:30PM.
