Terror plotter rapped about bombing, Old Bailey told

A man who planned an Islamic State-inspired terror attack made a rap recording in which he stated, I’ll be sending bombs and you’ll be getting smoked, a court has heard.

Sahayb Abu, 27, from south-east London, denies preparing for a terrorist attack by buying a sword, knife and combat clothing.

His brother Muhamed Abu, 32, denies knowing what Sahayb was planning and failing to report him to the police.

They are on trial at the Old Bailey.

The court heard Sahayb had written that Islam was about killing infidels.

Prosecutor John McGuinness QC told jurors that the brothers had extremist views and violent mindsets and that they supported the beliefs, the aims and methods of Islamic State.

The court heard that one audio message Muhamed, from Dagenham, east London, had sent his younger brother contained a rap saying: Let’s get merky, let’s get hurty, I’ve got got bombs that are just worthy… I will attack man.

The court was told that merky meant killing people.

Sahayb, from South Norwood, Croydon, replied with a rap, saying: Got my under armour on, cos I gotta stay strong…. I’ll be sending bombs and you’ll be getting smoked.

The rap continued: You’ll be getting crushed under my boot… I’ll send you to the clouds, 10 shots in your chest.
