    The Harsh Reality of Prison

    Kevin King, known as KK, has just been convicted of Armed Robbery and sentenced to 65 miaka gerezani. KK is 24 years-old. He must serve 85% of his 65-year sentence, which will make him about 70 when he is released from prison. KK is an only child, no nieces, wajukuu, cousins, wajomba, or aunts. His mother is on crack and the streets raised him. Once KK hits the jail most of the streets abandoned him. His homies disappeared. His girlfriend left. He could no longer provide the funds and good...SOMA ZAIDI


    Bear Witness to America’s Massacre

    It was seven when I heard the sirens I had to get away, but my legs wouldn’t move. I was running nowhere fast. Ghafla, I was face down. 1, 2, 3 officers hard tackled, knee in my back, arms wrestled behind me. My rights were never read; was told I had none. To take another man’s life is said to be the most egregious sin, and so is the denial of justice. Head mushed down, cop car door slammed shut. “We got ’em Capt!” Mistaken identity, my guilt...SOMA ZAIDI


    Happy Birthday: Massacre is Gone

    Oktoba 1 was the day I was born. There are many stories that began this way. An innocent young child welcomed to a cruel world. The world that I entered in 1979 alikuwa bado waning hangover kutoka maandamano ya '60s, na vyema ijulikane Black Power Movement. Baada ya muda mfupi, wakati miguu yangu alianza kupata mvua, Similac bado juu ya pumzi yangu, alikuja '80 ufa janga. Nadhani unaweza wito huu, nje na umri wa, na katika na mpya. Kama kila kitu kinachotokea kwa sababu labda hii ni ...SOMA ZAIDI


    Letter to the Bloods and Crips: Stop the Madness

    When I first started to write this post I told my brother Maal that it was going to be a banger, and I need time to get it right. I wanted my head to be in the right place. Before you read, know and understand that I’m addressing the Bloods and Crips of every state across the United States. I’m not just speaking on Jersey. I want to see change everywhere because we are losing this battle. Aren’t all of y’all tired of having your loved ones found dead in those streets?...SOMA ZAIDI


    A Man’s Man

    I’m so serious most of the time because, gerezani, only the fittest and most aggressive survive. A second cannot be wasted. Once seconds are lost, you lose, and losing is for losers! I keep an attitude because I never want to become complacent or okay with being in prison. My disdain for prison is what keeps me focused, planning, plotting, strategizing, and executing to get out of prison ASAP! To some I am extremely cocky and arrogant. But that’s only because I believe in me. My...SOMA ZAIDI

    Back in Solitary Confinement

    People, I would like to apologize for my inconsistent contributions to Live from Lockdown and the #RaiseUP movement as of late. I have been placed back in solitary confinement for allegedly speaking language associated with a gang. Madai, I was directing something. That is how the powers that be came at me. Katika tukio lolote, it was more political than that. I was transferred back to Trenton [New Jersey] State Prison from Rahway [East Jersey State Prison] and locked down. I spent sixteen days...SOMA ZAIDI

    Oath to Mission Statement

    I hereby take this oath . . . I remember reciting those words with aggression. With this oath I had no idea what I was really committing to. I had no ideas of the lives I was preparing to put at risk, including my own. I never believed or imagined speaking against this oath. On Machi 29, 2000, katika 12:31 am a boy joined the United Blood Nation. My permission was given in the form of excuses such as there was no love at home, I needed family, na orodha inaendelea. I told myself that I would...SOMA ZAIDI
