Accuser Records Threats From Zulu Nation


Earlier this year several men came forward with shocking claims they had been sexually molested as teens by Hip Hop pioneer and Zulu Nation founder Afrika Bambaataa [click here if you missed that].

Now members of the Zulu Nation have been caught on tape threatening the victims...

From Thump 
...two taped phone calls between Ronald [Bee-Stinger] Savage and a pair of top Zulu Nation lieutenants—including Mickey Bentson, a sometimes-road manager for rapper and TV star Ice-T—suggest that Savage was subjected to veiled threats, bullying, and attempts to get him to retract his accusations against the hip-hop icon and Zulu Nation leader.
"You damn hurt everybody in our whole organization, bro—and we would not expect that from you," Bentson says in a 22-minute, expletive-filled conversation with Savage, a recording of which was obtained by THUMP. "[If it was] anybody else [but you] we'd be like, 'Man, fuck that nigga.' We'd tear that nigga's head off. Stomp him the fuck out, B. For real, B. He'd be missing in action." Over the phone with THUMP, Bentson confirmed that it was him on the call to Savage.
According to Savage, 50, the heated call between him and Bentson occurred on March 30, a day after his appearance on The Star Chamber. Bentson flatly dismisses Savage's allegations, saying on the tape: "Anything a motherfucker did—he wanted to do it, man. Ain't nobody force nobody to do nothing, bro. Ain't nobody put no knife to their throat, didn't put no gun to their head—no one took no bat to their face. Niggas did what they wanted to do, man, because they wanted to do that."
Bentson, currently on the road with Ice-T for the rapper's touring "Art of Rap" festival, repeatedly accuses Savage of trying to harm the Zulu Nation in the recording.
"I'm 57 years old, man," Bentson says. "Bam is 60 years old, man. Y'all are tearing us apart with the bullshit. If this was something that was on your mind, this shit should have been out 20 years ago, 25 years ago. Why are we hurting the brand that we have, man? This is a brand, B."

...so he is acknowledging sexual acts happened, but thinks we are foolish enough to think that the only way to rape/molest someone is with a gun to their head? ok.

They don't care that what was (allegedly) done to this man and the others 30 or so years ago still affects them today. Stay strong, brother. Keep telling your story. Fuck their brand. Their brand only benefits them and those that control them, while you and the others suffered in silence for years and probably didn't get a damn thing other than mental anguish. How do you tell someone what to express and when to express themselves? They may not get the justice they are seeking or deserve, but this may bring them peace of mind if nothing else. This reminds me of the Cosby situation. People act like just because someone is famous and put up a certain image that certain things are beneath them. They are still human.

This dudes booty hole was savagely destroyed. Why was he not in school? Where was his mom? Why is Bambaataa not in jail? Why is KRS loves young 1's still protecting him? Where they lovers or do they have something in common? Where are all the so called journalist and bloggers who refuse to investigate?

@1:46 3:18 & 3:36 I agree with all 3 of you Wholeheartedly. "Anything a motherfucker did—he wanted to do it, man. Ain't nobody force nobody to do nothing, bro. Ain't nobody put no knife to their throat, didn't put no gun to their head—no one took no bat to their face. Niggas did what they wanted to do, man, because they wanted to do that." That right there confirmed what these men have come out and said. Because who in the hell would say something like that. They knew what was going on and were probably apart of it also. Who knows how many others there are out there. But are too ashamed to come forward to tell their story. I just Pray that God continues to work on them...
