Capital-"X" Cd Review

Capital-“X”’s rap is bloody serious. -Rune Slyngstad

A voice for the voiceless
305375. (IGWT Records.

Under the Protestfestival last year, Capital-“X” did a concert. It is easy to understand that he has been invited to the festival this year as well; to do a concert this coming Friday. Because this man burns. He has a burning soul with a strong message. Capital-“X” calls himself The Voice of The Voiceless. He does that after seeing and experiencing what exists of injustice and corruption on both sides of the walls. He grew up in Brooklyn, and had a difficult childhood with parents from Puerto Rico.
Capital-“X”’s rap is bloody serious. Neither he nor anyone else should defend crime and criminality, and it is not what this is about neither. It is about the fight for justice and for human rights. Capital-“X” is in other words a political activist. He calls what he does “Raptivism”.
It feels good to hear a rapper who doesn’t just brag about himself and talk about all the dope parties, but instead uses his voice in a meaningful battle. It is especially nice to hear that him and his helpers also has a strong grip on the rhythms, the groove and the over-all production. The tracks are through and through strong with lots of fresh intros from different speeches and actions. This long and rich album in over 73 minutes is full of substance and strong vibes. It is almost a little scary to dive down into the substantial depth of this. Try it anyway!

"Eye 4 N Eye"

Capital-"X" and Bredda 1 aka Sheepy Wonder from Kristiansand, Norway collaborated on this track and video to draw attention to a dozen very compelling stories and strong claims of innocence. Produced by 2Deep of Anno Domini Beats they project took the course of about 6 months to complete. The song was recorded in Norway and the video was filmed in Stiftelsen Arkivet (Archive Foundation) building. It was there that the Nazi's through the exploits of the men and women who, because of their endeavours to maintain a free and independent Norway, were incarcerated within its walls. During the 4 years from 1942 to 1945, over 3500 men and women spent more than 4 days in what became known as "The house of horrors" and "Tower of Torture". Most of them suffered tough interrogation, over 400 were cruelly and systematically tortured, and 162 died in concentration camps or were executed. Sheepy worked tirelessly to gain us access to these torture chambers to film. We rapped for all death row prisoners and their families and loved ones but we do mention 12 very controversial cases that everyone should look into for themselves and who knows, I may see you out there on the front lines. Please pass the video around. We really hope that it will make a difference. Peace and progress. Always. "X" Though we only mention twelve cases, these twelve cases represent over 12 thousand others caught up in the web of the system. I urge every that reads this to look into these cases and pass the information along. Stopping injustice is up to us, we the people. This is dedicated to all the victims that are created surrounding the death penalty. To all the condemned. All hope is never lost.

Capital-“X”305375 CD Review By: Solomon Comissiong

In an era when the corporate media has carefully handcrafted and selected Hip Hop “artists” who fit their acceptable standards of what should be promoted as well as who shouldn’t, it is refreshing to hear rappers like Capital-“X”. I first became introduced to the work of Brooklyn born rapper, Capital-“X”, in 2008. He was delivering a lecture on the nefarious and capitalist driven Prison Industry Complex while speaking on the campus of the University of Maryland . Yes, that’s right; a rapper was giving a lecture on something other than how to mindlessly support capitalistic values, senseless violence, or the denigration of black and brown women. Much like a skilled professor, Capital-“X” intricately deconstructed the US’s Prison Industry Complex to an audience of mostly college students. The students, including myself, clung to each of Capital-X’s captivating words. He spoke with passion, conviction and the resonance of someone who genuinely cares about a system that destroys countless communities and families from stolen coast to stolen coast. He spoke with the warranted anger of someone who had close and personal experiences with the bloodthirsty and institutionally racist system. I later found out that Capital-“X” had as close a relationship with the US criminal injustice system as anyone can have. He was in fact a former inmate within the notorious Rikers Island , among other correctional facilities.

Capital-“X” was blatantly honest how he initially became embedded within the web of the criminal injustice system. He also explained how that vastly flawed system inflicted physical and psychological damage on countless inmates, including him. From the forcing of psychotropic drugs to prisoner suicide to murder and even the indiscriminate beatings of inmates by correctional officers; Capital-“X” disclosed all that he witnessed as well as experienced. After educating his audience he blessed the microphone with some of the illest and socially conscious array of lyrics I had heard in some time. I have seen Capital-“X” lecture and perform on two separate occasions and each time it was “off the chain”. Being a child of the Golden Era of Hip Hop Capital-“X” reminded me of many of the artists I grew up listening to. He represents the kind of rapper that the corporate media, and much of white America , is petrified of. In essence, he is a self-educated man of color (Indigenous Puerto Rican) who does not give a fuck about bucking the capitalist and white supremacist system that is entrenched within America . Capital-“X” embraces the responsibility that accompanies his talent---to educate the masses on a range of social issues. He artfully does this without compromising the quality of his music or his ability to literally move his fans to dance.

This year Capital-“X” dropped his debut album simply entitled “305375”, his former prison number. Capital-“X” deliberately dropped this album several years after he first began rapping. He did so because it was more important to him to engage himself, as an activist, with several Prison Industry Complex and Death Penalty related projects. To refer to Capital-“X” as a man of conviction would be a gross understatement. With that being said, Capital-X’s “305375 is one of the dopest albums I have heard in quite some time. Each track is laced with the lyrical venom that makes those fake ass corporate record label executives cringe. “305375” is exactly what the corporate media (radio, TV, and record labels) do not what the masses of Hip Hop fans to hear. And this is why these snakes do all that they can to suppress artists like Capital-“X”. They wish to continually program the masses of Hip Hop fans into believing that the racially stereotypical rap music fed to them is actually good. They have, in essence, significantly limited the mental and social scope of millions of rap fans, without those same fans even knowing it. However, Capital-X’s “305375” is a potent dose of smelling salts capable of psychologically waking up even the most dumbed down corporate rap fan.

There is not a bad song within “305375”, however my favorite has to be the song entitled, Revolutionary. He starts that song off by saying:

“I'm tired of the hypocrisy and the mockery of justice
tired of seeing our children, carried off in prison buses
I'm tired of the brutality and all the corruption
they arrest us nothing, I'm ready to do something
the prison industry, and the corporate hustle
need to be dismantled as we continue to struggle.”

From the moment that song starts is hard not to find yourself immersed in thoughts of mobilizing with brothers and sisters to Fight the Apathy (title of another song on the album) and starting a fucking revolution. Although, after listening to the entire CD, you get that feeling. “305375” is flat out one of the most revolutionary, socially conscious and superb albums this decade! Capital-X’s music is designed to feed your mind and give back to socially neglected communities, unlike the corporate backed rap that is manufactured to rob your soul and feed their pockets. I highly endorse Capital-X’s “305375” as well as the man himself. If you’re a fan of real Hip Hop music pick of this album now. Capital-X’s album can be found at: www.capital-x.com

Exclusive Capital-"X" Interview by Latina Beatz

Exclusive Interview with Capital-"X"

February 9th, 2010 by latinabeatz

I love to interview people with a message, especially artists and activists such as Capital X. His story is very powerful, It’s not the normal interview on just Music, To explain would take to much, Rather read it in his words below.

You go by “Capital X” what is the meaning behind that?

They started calling me X back in the 80’s while I was serving time on Rikers Island (New York City Jail). I got deep into reading about Malcolm Little (Malcolm X). My obsession with Malcolm got everybody calling me X and it just stuck. I added the Capital to signify “Against Capital Punishment”. The capital “X” also stands for the King of all Kings. “X” comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, “anointed one”, translated as “Christ”. I am a Christian. An unorthodox one, but I am a Christian. There it is, Capital-”X”.

May 19, 2010 you will be releasing, a no doubt highly anticipated album, What’s it called, and what can we expect?

The album is called “305375” The Voice of the Voiceless, Vol. 1. You can expect to find a lot of realness on this album. A lot of what I am saying on this album comes…. straight from the belly of the beast. It comes from the minds of those locked deep inside of Americas prisons.

Click on album cover below

I spit a whole lot of truth over some dope beats produced by some of the most promising producers coming up. You will find more truth on this album than you’ll find in any American court of law including the fucking Supreme Court.

Who is featured on it?

There is actually only one collaboration on the whole album. That would be with Akir of Viper Records. I did other collaborations but the track with Akir (Always Keep It Real) is the only one that made it on the album. I didn’t want an album that was heavily saturated with collaborations fuck that. Akir added just the right amount of flavour that satisfied.You will find some prisoners featured on some of the interludes though and on some of the tracks. From solitary confinement, death row, and from beyond the grave I bring you the voices of the voiceless…for real.As for production features: DJ Emergency, Engineer, Anno Domini, Unabeatz, Frank Ness, Troy Karanta, DJ Perfection, and 2Deep and Vherbal of Anno Domini Beats.

How do you go through the selection process for each track?

I don’t have a set formula. Everything I do is pretty much by way of inspiration. When I meet up with a producer, I’ll go through their entire library and what ever track gets lyrics flowing I take with me. I have had some producers that send me like a single track they think is right for me and most of the time they on point and upon hearing it, the words of an entire song come to me on the spot. That’s some real shit right there. The track “From the Frontlines” produced by Troy Karanta was like that. So was “Face The Music” produced by Anno Domini.
On the flip side, I sometimes write a prisoners story out or what he wants said, you know what he or she wants the world to hear. It will be an accapella at first till I find a beat to marry with the rhyme. That also at times works out pretty amazing, it’s like it’s all meant to be.

Do you have any Shows or Tours planned for this album?

I will be in Europe at the time of the official release date, May 19, 2010…Malcolm X’s birthday; touring. I will be in Europe for most of the summer partaking in many of the festivals out there which will include the Protest Festival in Kristiansand, Norway for the second year. After assaulting Europe, the plan is to tour across the US hitting all 36 death penalty states. Those are the states that currently still kill prisoners by legal homicide. It’s not just about the music, it’s about the message and taking action.

What is your mission in your music?

Simplified…to give a voice to the voiceless. Many musicians within their struggle to become rich and famous or whatever, may dedicate a line, or even an entire song to the silenced. For me it’s not just about a hot fucking punch line, or just a song, it’s my life’s mission. I want to give voice to my boy Lefty who died unnecessarily in the cell next to me of sugar shock back in 99. To all my other boys I seen die on the inside and for the 7000 others that die every year unnecessarily in American prisons. This is not counting those legally lynched by the state. I want to give voice to the unjustly imprisoned, the condemned, those that are kicked down, and knocked around. To all the have nots and haven’t gots. I want to give voices to all the victims, not just some of them but all the victims, to the poor and to the oppressed. I want to wake up the people, shift the public’s opinion with the truth, abolish the death penalty, and see our criminal and justice system reformed. Yea, that’s a big mission but like Mother Teresa once said, “God doesn’t require us to succeed; He only requires that you try.”

Will you be doing any speaking engagements or workshops in the near future?

Yes definitely. At the moment we are doing a number of interviews which is great. I am open to every channel that reaches the people. The most noteworthy speaking engagements and workshops will be at the Protest Festival in Kristiansand, Norway this summer. I will be speaking and working with some 1,600 high school students. High schools I think are the best place to raise revolutionary consciousness, it’s that ripe age even though I believe it is never to early nor to late to stand up for what you believe in. To stand up against injustice.

Going through your Bio, it’s extremely impressive, European tours, spoke in 10 different countries, Documentary’s , Looking back at your life from present day, Would you agree you are here for a mission, reason?

I most definitely without question believe that everything I have been through in my life was for the sole purpose of doing what I am doing today. It was as if I were being trained. If I hadn’t have went to prison and experienced all I have in my life including addiction, I may not have been able to speak out as I do now for those in need. I may have still become an activist and all who knows because the struggle is in my heart, I have lived within the struggle all my life but I may not have been as affective as I can be now especially with the youth. My past is nothing to be proud of. But when one speaks from experience it’s hard to deny them. I believe everyone in life has their mission. Not everyone finds their mission or their purpose in life, I just happen to have fell into mine and I don’t take it lightly.

There’s a saying “Blessing in Disguise” do you think if you weren’t in jail, your experience and desire to speak about the foul treatment would have shaped your wanting to be activist and lead to lyricism to speak out?

Blessing in disguise? I guess you can say that. I have always said it was a blessed curse. Meaning I have been blessed to have found my purpose in life, yet I am cursed with all the ill affects of living the life I have lived. But yes you can say it has been a blessing in disguise. Truth be told, there are a lot of ill rappers out there. What separates me from a lot of them is the simple fact that I do not bullshit at all. I refuse to comprise my message for a doper flow or any of that. I speak what I have lived, or I channel the truth of others that’s what matters most to me. Yea a lot of rappers claim to keep it real, but let’s be for real.
As for academically accredited activists, they are necessary without question, but again the voice of experience, true life experience speaks louder than a story teller or someone that just states learned facts. The fact I do it in rhyme too, that keeps ones attention young and old.
For real I think if I had never got locked up, I would have been all about the police brutality and corruption or the bullshit school system. Word up something. There’s is a lot to be grateful for in life, but we are still in need of much change. Again though I will agree that yes, my past turned out to be a blessing in disguise. That may become the title and concept for a track, word up.

What do you think as a society we can do to change the way the Prison System in regards to the treatment of “minorities” is handled?

Sabac Red (formally of NoN-Phixion) said it best; we need to “Organize”. It was Abraham Lincoln who told us “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.” We need to overcome our fears and raise our voices. We the people need to stop being so fucking dependent on a governmental system that don’t give a shit about us. Injustices, brutality, corruption, I’m saying the victims amount into the millions. When we going to say enough is enough? The only reason injustice still thrives, and the only reason oppression, repression and modern day slavery still exists is because we the people allow it. We need to organize and let it be known that we are not going to stand for it anymore. We need the numbers. Get involved!

In 2008 you walked 1,700 miles from New Jersey to Texas, in protest of Capitol Punishment, what was that experience like?

It was sobering first and foremost. Though it got media attention all over the world, it failed to motivate the people in the way that I had hoped for. Don’t get me wrong it served a great purpose. It brought hope to a lot of the brothers on the row. It also brought hope to their families, and the family members of victims that are against the death penalty. Though it wasn’t as earth shaking as some expected, it was empowering. It sure tested my faith. God does provide, I can testify to that. The poem “Footprints” has a whole new meaning for me now word up.
Some people thought I was doing it for publicity. Some people thought I did it for money. All those people can go fuck themselves. I did it for the brothas and sistas on the row and I would do it again in a New York minute.

You definitely do more than just talk about your opinions, you bring them to life with actions, what are some key things people should pay attention to and make a difference?

Number one, the death penalty. We need to abolish the death penalty in the US as they have in most all other industrialized countries. Understand that there have been 250 exonerations in the United States, 139 exonerations from death row as of 11-3-2009 according to the Death Penalty Information Center meaning even the innocent get found guilty and sentenced to death in America. According to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, it is constitutional to execute an innocent person as long as they had a fair trial. Like poor people can even get a fair trial in the US. Think about that. That puts us all at risk. Capitol punishment basically means those without capital, get the punishment.
The 13th Amendment. Modern day slavery. Don’t think that it can’t happen to you? Do you have any idea how many cats I was locked up with that thought like that at one point in their lives? Well let me tell you, it can happen to anyone including you. One in every one hundred Americans is now locked up in prison or under some sort of correctional supervision. They are profiting big time in the punishment industry. The prison industrial complex is only second to the military industrial complex. It’s a billion dollar industry. In the new modernized slave trade, these mother fuckers make money if you work in the fields or not. They make 30 to 75 thousand dollars per prison bunk per year filled or not at tax payer’s expense. Like Scarface of the Ghetto Boy’s said, “they smart”.
Fuck learning sports statistics and fuck keeping up on politics and policies through the media. Pick up a book and arm yourselves with the truth and don’t be afraid to fire at will. Mass incarceration, the drug war, immigration I am telling you it’s only going to get worse. The Incarcerated States Of America, that’s our future. That is our destiny unless we organize and take action. The land of the free, imprisons more of its citizens than any other country in the entire world. What more proof do you need? Soon we will have just two social statuses, the free and the imprisoned. Arm yourselves with the truth word up.

Your involved with many different organizations, what are some that your working with right now?

At the present time I am working hard on developing and strengthening international relations. The struggle is world wide as you know. Most recent I have been working with Caramundo. Caramundo works with at risk youths in Latin America. Millions of youths live in poor, urban areas in Latin America. Many of these youths are born with potential and filled with dreams. Yet they lack the support and resources to achieve what they are capable of. Deprived of education, opportunities and a social support system, many resort to criminal activity and prostitution.
Caramundo’s experience is that, if only given the opportunity, many of these youths at risk will choose to develop into creative and productive members of their communities.
Caramundo is committed to providing these young people with this opportunity. We support motivated youths (ages 12-30) in realizing their talents and acquiring the tools to attain economic self-sufficiency. By doing so, we enable them to achieve a better life for themselves and their communities.
Caramundo is a youth-driven, registered non-profit organization. The organization is almost entirely run and operated by local young leaders in Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador and volunteers in the Netherlands. www.caramundo.org
I have also allied with A.I.M. The A.I.M. are a group of activists, poets and rappers who are fighting together to achieve the slow but steady destruction of global injustice. The A.I.M. Are based in Scotland, UK. www.antiinjusticemovement.com
I am also very closely tied to Juan Melendez’s “Voices United for Justice Project”. An innovative project that provides educational services throughout the country (USA) directly addressing the controversial and divisive issue of the death penalty. www.voicesunited4justice.com Just to name a few.

I do believe a lot of people, especially men of color, are given harsher punishments, and some are even innocent and still accused guilty, however, there are some that have done cruel & torturous crimes, Rape, Murder, etc do you think the Death Penalty shouldn’t apply to them?

Killing as a punishment for killing, to me just doesn’t make any sense at all. I strongly believe so long as governments set the example of killing their enemies, private citizens will also kill theirs. Hate breeds hate, and yes, killing just breeds more killing.
The one fact everyone needs to realize is, that there is an alternative to the death penalty and that is life without the possibility of parole. It is a just punishment. Even those with their hearts set on revenge should be appeased, even elated. “With life without parole, you are dying a hard death. One that lingers and toys with you.” -Jack Henry Abbott.
The death penalty system is fraught with error. It discriminates on the basis of socioeconomic status, race and geography. It is arbitrary and capricious, including its use against the mentally ill and defendants who did not actually kill anyone and did not intend anyone to be killed (The Law of Party’s). And for those worrying about their taxes, the death penalty costs more than life in prison. I’ve done the math.
America prides itself on human decency and common sense, yet the death penalty contradicts both. The country should reject such senseless cruelty. It is a cruel and inhuman punishment, brutalizing to all who are involved in the process. It is a system which is irreversible and is prone to error and the execution of the innocent.
I believe only God has the right to take life. We as people don’t have that right under any circumstances.

What advice do you have for the youth going down the wrong path?

Read. Even when I was running the streets I kept a book in my back pocket. I was blessed that someone turned me on to reading when I was a young buck. “Books are dangerous where there is injustice”. This is why they forbid slaves to learn how to read. I believe this is why they make books scarce in prisons. They want to keep us ignorant…powerless. You don’t need money to read a book you can go and sit in the free public library near you and read all day. There is a wealth of information for the taking. Information is the most lethal weapon in the world.
Information you gather by reading are also like keys. These keys will open doors of opportunity that will present themselves to you as you learn, believe that. Find a subject you like. Any subject and master it. In this world people pay masters a lot for their services. Trust me, just read.

RapManiacz.Com Capital-X Cd "305375" Review


Translated by RapManiacz.com Staff:

CAPITAL-"X" - 305375 (The Voice Of The Voiceless) Volume 1

Reviewed by Mistadave
3.5 out of 5

The "X", the unknown, related to the great black leader of the past. 305375, the identification number he had known in his days in prison. An explicit reference (Voice of The Voiceless) to Mumia Abu Jamal, perhaps the worlds most famous convicted prisoner on death row. Once you've come to understand these concepts, then you're ready to plunge into the universe of Capital-"X", Puerto Rican origins, Brooklyn, New York born, a world which consists of strong feelings, blind fury, a desire for revenge, for justice, feelings that often collide with his hope for a better world, less corrupted, less cynical, one that needs a fresh start with a new youth education system. The albums mood is often nervous and obscure, related to a person that strongly believes that his prison experience deteriorated his life instead of correcting it, in a system that hides the motives of profits, the abuses, and the structures' precarious conditions. 305375 is a portrait of reality equivalent to a punch right in the stomach, a wake up call against the death penalty, which the artist fights against with numerous and praiseworthy activities (identified by the artist himself by the word "Raptivism"), with many interludes that brings directly to you the voices of the condemned. Goin' to the album specifics, "305375" a 23-tracks work, comprising interludes, brings back an imaginary connection with the militant and controvercial Rap once performed by Public Enemy and Paris, specifically in songs as the symbolic "Criminals Of War", by exposing similar conspiracy theories against America's powerful side, the one that tentatively crushes minorities, and by bringing to every ear that listens the prisons' inhumane conditions, being that experience of living in those places are something that a person carries with them forever.
The truth and passion exposed are well represented by the musical choices, the beats are raw and hard, the drums are tight, the keyboards are often solemn, and they contribute in creating a freezing atmosphere (“Stop Snitchin” fits the example very well), there are malinconico piano loops ("From The Frontlines", "Prison Of The Mind"), and there's little variations on the main themes, as many songs start and finish with the same combination of beat/loop. The overall work, despite its notable length, is interesting even after many listens and the number of skippable songs is reduced to a minimum, it is very good from a lyrical point of view, even if X's lyrical style is sometimes hard to comprehend (X eats many words, so possessing the written lyrics is fundamental to really understand what he says), a characteristic that collides with the urgence of the message involved. The best episodes are "Face The Music", a heavy boom bap which spits in the face of the corruption, the imposing "Conspiracy" and its anti-American dream, the touchy "999330", dedicated to Anthony Haynes, and the hypnotic/militant "Fight The Apathy", the discs highest point. "Spic In Black" also remains well impressed on the listener's mind, a sort of ballad accompanied by an acoustic guitar where X explains his legacy with the color black, honoring the lost and the defeated ones, a Johnny Cash-inspired concept track. It is a truthful album, a monothematic one but very important to listen to, often controversial, sometimes extreme, there are some concepts that some will disagree with, and can discuss for months, about the cruelty and the worst parts of this world that not everyone knows.
