The 5 Percent Nation’s Impact On Hip-Hop’s Golden Era – Rock The Bells

The Essence

ManifestingBuildingLetting knowledge be born.
In 1986, urban America (and a growing segment of the rest of the country) was experiencing and repeating the Supreme Mathematics of the 5% Nation of The Gods & Earths.

MC Shan proudly proclaimed in the same year “I got the knowledge to know, the wisdom to speak, the understanding of my rhyme is at its fullest peak.” It was primarily youth in New York City and the surrounding Tri-State area who understood why Just-Ice referred to the Bronx as “Pelan” on “Going Way Back,” his classic 1987 single with KRS-One.

In The Eyes Of The Beast A Black Man With A Weapon Is Always The Enemy

Tekashi 6ix9ine finally got his wish for someone to “test his gangsta” and accepting the challenge was none other than the alphabet boys themselves as the young rapper was arrested and hit with a multitude of serious charges.

Another individual who had his gangsta tested and came off worst was missionary John Chau who went to the North Sentinel Islands illegally and was killed by the indigenous people who don’t take too kindly to outsiders.

As the year draws to a close, there seems to be no end in sight to Black men being killed by cold-blooded police. In the eyes of the beast, a Black man with a gun is always the enemy Continue reading
