Child Molestation Victim Ronald Savage Drops Track Dissing Afrika Bambaattaa

(AllHipHop News) New York politician Ronald “Bee Stinger” Savage has teamed up with producer Jonathan Hay, KXNG Crooked, Truth Ali, and JC Flores for the new track “Don’t Close Your Eyes,” which addresses Savages allegations of child molestation against Hip-Hop icon Afrika Bambaataa.

The new track is actually a remix created by producer Johnathan Hay.

The producer says he was inspired to do the remix after hearing the poignant lyrics from Truth Ali on the original version with the MC rhyming “I was touched in a way that no kid should have to talk about.”

The remix features keys from Bambaataa’s classic track “Planet Rock” replayed by Hay while accuser Ronald Savage issues a very bold challenge to president Barack Obama.

“Children are being molested every day. I was molested by a world Hip-Hop icon,” states Savage. “My question is to the President of the United States of America: what are you going to do about the child molestation crisis of America?”

On the track Truth Ali speaks about his past victimization while Savage sheds light on his own story.

 In a previous interview with AllHipHop.com, Ronald Savage also had some very choice words for Hip-Hop representative KRS-One and his apparent defense of Afrika Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation.

Ronald Savage was recently reported to be the target of threats from two of the Zulu Nation’s top lieutenants, as indicated by two recorded phone conversations suggesting that the accuser was vehemently coerced to retract his claims.

Give the track a listen below.
