Revolutionary Suicide – Huey P. Newton via Lupe Fiasco’s Book Club

Eloquently tracing the birth of a revolutionary, Huey P. Newton’s famous and oft-quoted autobiography is as much a manifesto as a portrait of the inner circle of America’s Black Panther Party. From Newton’s impoverished childhood on the streets of Oakland to his adolescence and struggles with the system, from his role in the Black Panthers to his solitary confinement in the Alameda County Jail, Revolutionary Suicide is smart, unrepentant, and thought-provoking in its portrayal of inspired radicalism.

This week Lupe Fiasco’s Book Club read’s a book from Huey P. Newton. I guess this nigga Lupe isn’t a light reader, heavy thinker and raps sometimes.

Buy Revolutionary Suicide

Empire of Illusion – Chris Hedges via Lupe Fiasco’s Book Club

Just to show it’s all love I’ll shine some light on Lupe Fiasco’s Book Club. In the club you have a week to read a book and Lupe’s first offering is Chris Hedges Empire of Illusion. Empire of Illusion is a shattering meditation on American obsession with celebrity and the epidemic of illiteracy that threatens our cultural integrity. Reporting on such phenomena as professional wrestling, the pornographic film industry, and unchecked casino capitalism, Hedges exposes the mechanisms used to divert us from confronting the economic, political, and moral collapse around us. Empire of Illusion shows us how illiteracy and the embrace of fantasy have impoverished our working class, allowed for the continuance of destructive public policy, and ushered in cultural bankruptcy.

Buy the book : Empire of Illusion

There is a Chris Hedges lecture at New York’s New School given in December of last year after the jump. I warn you, the idea’s offered in the lecture aren’t for everyone and are very VERY controversial. Watch if you have an open mind and/or an hour and 20 minutes.

Die Nigger Die – H. Rap Brown

America, if it takes my death to organize my people to revolt against you,
And to organize your jails to revolt against you,
And to organize your troops to revolt against you,
And to organize your children to revolt against you,
And to organize your God to revolt against you,
And to organize your poor to revolt against you,
And to organize your country to revolt against you,
And to organize Mankind to rejoice in your destruction and ruin,
Then, here is my Life!
But my Soul belongs to my people.
Lasima Tushinde Mbilashaka (We Shall Conquer Without a Doubt).
Yours in Revolution,

H. Rap Brown

This isn’t a KKK book but a political memoir of a black panther.

Enter the Mind of Joe Budden – Joe Budden

So Joe Budden turns into author. He invites us to “Enter the Mind of Joe Budden”. The book takes you through Joe Budden’s hits (hopefully they muster up more than pump it up) and explains the thought process through his verses. Its something like the XXL or Vibe or The Source article he did. This book is supposed to be like Jay-Z’s Decoded. I hope this is a real book and not bullshit like Jay-Z’s book.

Buy the book and/or buy tickets to the S.O.B’s performance and release party

My Bondage and My Freedom – Frederick Douglas

“My Bondage and My Freedom,” [is] a deep meditation on the meaning of slavery, race, and freedom, and on the power of faith and literacy, as well as a portrait of an individual and a nation a few years before the Civil War.” As his narrative unfolds, Frederick Douglass—abolitionist, journalist, orator, and one of the most powerful voices to emerge from the American civil rights movement—transforms himself from slave to fugitive to reformer, leaving behind a legacy of social, intellectual, and political thought.
