on the back cover of the mf doom album doomsday, doom and another guy are wearing the robes of the holy tabernacle ministries the cultish church started by malachi z york, also called the The United Nuwaubian Nation Of Moors, they're a bit like the 5 percent nation and seem to be having a slightly simular affect on hip hop and a few high profile stars,however the 5 percent natin refute some of their claims.

they live in a compound in putnam county,and like Louis farrakhan the leader has a history as a popular singer..


the belief system is a massive mixture of isoteric islam,buddhism, judaism and ufology.

that originates in a pre nation of islam group called the moorish science temple ran by a guy called noble drew ali, whom makachi was a follower of..


they have convinced many back us voters around putnam county to register..

recent developments have seen wesley snipes, who has started up amen-ra films and his private security force called the royal guard of amen ra buying property next to the compound, he is a follower.. one of many alledged millionaire Nuwaubians.


also malachi and his wife were arrested on suspicious charges of child molestation.


incidentally this bunch are pretty popular, there is a nuwaubian bookshop in hackney.

anyone know any more stuff?
