About Us

Our Story

The Evolution didn’t began with Rattler Publishing Global but with Shunya Limited in the autumn of 1986 down in the Bayou, New Orleans, Louisiana. After hearing a young composer do a sound check; Anujia Hatal approached the young composer with the idea of keeping his music out of mainstream recording studios which was controlled by whites, something David was certainly interested in. She told him if kept his sound in small intimate setting where the listener can go on the journey with the composer the music would mature with the wisdom of the journey and David agreed.

In autumn of the following year Shunya Limited was born. The first order of business was to serve as a watchdog for Rattler Music and Literary works, by limiting access to written material. The company since them holds seminars teaching young artist about the importance of maintaining the rights to their works and the dangers of dealing with un-melanated artists (or white thieves) who most certainly will re-engineer melanated music then call it their own, a major problem Shunya brutally guarded against in the early days of its creation.


Rattler Publishing

Rattler Publishing began its journey in the spring of 2012 in Northern New England. A philosophy developed it into a concept and redesigned into a lock step matrix.

After the creation of the constitution, the bylaws, and the articles, Rattler Publishing quickly employed the by us for only us philosophy across the board. The new company wasted on time defining it’s interest in underground circles of music and literary, and with extreme brutality caused a cataclysmic shift in the operations, and seized control of The story Teller’s Lair. After forcing white readers and melanated sympathizers out the organization; Rattler Publishing permanently slammed the door, and although; they’ve never admitted it, its believed the act was a direct retaliatory response for the Indian removal act of the 1800’s which is rumored to be connected personally to the psychological thriller novelest.

Since that cold rocky start in autumn of 2012, Rattler Publishing has moved forward on a global quest with the same aggressive forward motion that launched it. Besides from Gemini the latest edition to the Rattler Publishing conglomerate of companies is Melanated Community Radio-US and MCR-Caribbean which follows the same by us for only us philosophy of Rattler Publishing and Shunya Limited.

The Gemini


Gemini Website Design and Hosting

Gemini website design and hosting is the brain child of Nasrene Muhammad. The company take the name Gemini not only based the symbolism and philosophy that created Rattler Publishing, but more of the connecting between the president of Rattler Publishing (Ursula Turray) and the co-owner (David Rattler) having been born in the same year, on the same day, one at sunrise in the Arkansas Delta, the other at sunset in Ibadan Nigeria. Gemini is more than just a website design company that focuses on advance technologies that pushes beyond known boundaries of excellence, but its name pays homage to the importance of the connection between Ursula and David.

Melanated Community Radio

After seeing the need to bring melanated people together globally, David Rattler launched the online radio station with a single purpose connecting Melanated people for the purpose of discovering, reconnecting and maintaining our cultural way of life. Taking from a philosophy introduced to him, by his grandmother during his childhood growing up in the Arkansas Delta. “To whom much is given; to many must he give, but to whom nothing is given; to many more shell he give” and being reminded of this philosophy at his grandmother graveside; David then looked for ways to breath life into this prophetic concept of a people, and in July 2017 Melanated Community Radio was born.

The Station along with the Global Community connects melanated people on a single time line with a single purpose of finding long term logical solutions (not failed religious ideologies) to the issues faced daily as people of colour. Although Rattler Publishing do not allow religious rhetoric to be broadcast on the stream, they do allow cultural spirituality as it pertains to individual cultures. In the second year of its operation Rattler Publishing launch Melanated Community Radio-Caribbean and name Denyse Reyes as executive director.

The Global Community

The Global Community is the foundation that drives the purpose of Melanated Community Radio. The global community is the starting point where melanated people from all walks of life come together and discuss strategies to obtain long term solutions to issues that prevent people of colour from obtaining true identities and self worth as a person. Its a place where topics are discussed globally concerning police brutality’s directed at people of colour, community defense tactics, healthy living, relationships, cultural preservation of our melanated youth, economic empowerment for our families and business.

Our Direction

Rattler Publishing, Gemini, and Shunya Limited all operate under the by us for only us with no exceptions. To help build economic empowerment by connecting melanated people with a single concept of employing self-determination. By any means we rise above our pale oppressors and control the narrative to the story we write; discovering who we are and not who they say we are and becoming more, self-assured, culturally preserved, and economically  powerful tomorrow then we were today is the sole purpose of Melanated Community Radio and The Global Community.

“For if melanated people allows the pale people to tell their story and deceive them of who God is and what their culture should be; Believe not the story of fools, for he love his enemy. Remember not his culture, say not a single pray to his God; least you too shall be like grains of sand swept across the desert by the coming forth of truth”
