Greetings and welcome to this special edition of the Hip Hop War Report. Today we bring to you a podcast based on the most important thing in your life: YOUR HEALTH!. The War Report has teamed with KhaazRa MaaRanu from www.dpeeps.com and www.holisticperspective.net to get his insight on the topic of "gene mutation". KhaazRa breaks it down into common terms so we can all understand the importance of this topic. The Hip Hop War Report is dedicated to keeping the public informed with truth. In order to enjoy a healthy life we have to change our eating habits and at least recognize what is bad for our bodies. We start this podcast with great words from the world renowned journalist and political prisoner, Mumia Abu Jamal. Mumia weighs in on the topic of global warming. This piece is titled the "Planets Death Row". Please take time to listen to the facts and truth about this very serious problem.
I would like to give you this information passed on to me by a War Report correspondent, Da Da the Goldenchild. Its a comparison between WATER and COKE. You be the judge!
#1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
(Likely applies to half the world population.)
#2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.
#3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.
#4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
#5. Lack of water, is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
#6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
#7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
#8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%., and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer. Are you drinking the amount of water you should drink every day?
#1. In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.
#2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke and it will be gone in two days.
#3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china.
#4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers:
Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.
#5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.
#6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
#7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.
#8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
#1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.
#2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial trucks must use a hazardous Material place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.
#3. The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean engines of the trucks for about 20 years!
Now the question is, would you like a glass of water? or Coke?

Welcome to another episode of the Hip Hop War Report. Today's episode features interviews JR, the Minister of Information, from the Block Report. JR interviews Flava Flav and Chuck D. from the world renowned hip hop group, "Public Enemy". JR and Flava Flav discuss the legacy of "Public Enemy", as well as Stanley "Tookie" Williams and Flav's reality show.
The second segment features our independent artists spotlight. Today's spotlight will feature Brooklyn's own DaDa the Golden Child. This interview will be conducted by Akir. In this interview Akir and Golden Child discuss the collaborative effort known as The Reavers. The Reavers is a group comprised of eleven independent hip-hop artists from across the nation. The Reavers' album is an incredible effort boasting many great names such as: Golden Child, Hasan Salaam, Akir, Billy Woods, Karniege, Keith Masters and Priviledge, just to name a few.
The Reavers first single is entitled "The Slums"and was produced by Golden Child. "The Slums" is a recording reality that delves into the lives of people in the hood. The emcees performing on this song express their views, good and bad, about the places where we dwell. "The Slums" communicates how the people in the hood fight back. The creative lyricism displayed on "The Slums" illustrates how the poor neighborhoods and projects were designed as traps. These traps keep people contained in a distressed state and fighting amongst themselves despite what the media may tell us. We highly recommend The Reavers' album "Terror Firma".
They go on to discuss DaDa the Golden Child's hip-hop/reggae band "Plan B". Akir and Golden Child talk about how progressive hip-hop is becoming as it pertains to the live show. Golden Child also discusses the Original Sessions' Band Showcase, in which Plan B is currently involved. We are also pleased to announce that Golden Child will be a new correspondent for the Hip Hop War Report.
Finally, this episode concludes with an interview between JR and Chuck D, in which they discuss independent labels and freelance media. Chuck D expresses his opinion on the record industry vs. the music business.
