1. Intro

2.Rebel Music
A nice opening track, Hell Razah spits his usual rhyme. He sounds on point and the beat is just right for the lyrics on here, so this is a pretty solid track. 3.5/5

3.Article One
Ok as soon as the track comes on you're ready for the beat to drop on here and it does. Hell Razah goes in on this joint
Ayo the Bush's got plans to lock down Afghanistan
Take all of the Heroin, bring it out to Desert land
The black man, write his war, why we was neva fam
I be a Sun of Man, blood kin of Abraham
Holy wars in Iran, now we're be eye-scanned
Divided we stand, united we fall
Like Babylon, they built the Twin Towers too tall
In these days of Revelation, ain't nobody could ball
Hand writings on the Project walls written in Hebrew
With hand made Desert Eagle, I kill evil
Four hundred years later, we still feeble
My inmates that's locked in hell, we still need you
I be the breath of life for dead people
Valley and drop o's, I dare who try to sit it in my throne
He's ass hole, for thinkin' he could fuck wit our zone
He better spit that weak shit about them diamonds and hoes

he shreds this joint with no problem, verse does sound familar but it sounds real nice on here. 4th Disciple does a great job on this one.

4.High Science
This is an ok joint, pretty average on here, Hell Razah does stick to the title on here and drops science on alot of cats, lyrics are on point, the beat is pretty average though which kind of kills the steam. 3.5/5

5.One Harmony
I fucks with this joint right here, I love the hook on here " I'm Reality, Poverty, Poetry, Prophecy, Honesty...." he just goes on this one. Hell Razah is dropping that knowledge, niggaz need to wake up, then he shouts out G.G.O. (Ghetto Government Official). His second verse is reused from another song (Rowdy, Rowdy). It's all good a good track is still produced. 4/5

This is a nice joint right here, I'm feeling the beat by 4th and Hell Razah does not disappoint aswell, he is crazy throughout this whole album. 4.5/5

7.Oh! Baby
This is ok, I like it at times then sometimes I don't feel it that much, this sounds like he is speaking to the world on the pupil on this joint,
the beat by 4th is nice and Hell Razah spits raw on here. I'm listening to the track now and I'm feeling it.

8.Way of Life
It's something about this beat I do not like at all and it just makes me want to hit the skip button, Hell Razah takes us through a hip-hop journey on this one, but the beat makes me unaware... 3/5

9.Baby Girl
I'm not feeling this joint either, I skip this track everytime aswell, beat is weak, Hell Razah comes ok, but this isn't good enough for a full listen, he keeps it real though. 3/5

10.Take Ya Time
This is an ok joint, i like his last verse on here, some smooth jazz shit, people need to listen to Razah's words, he spits the truth on this joint.
In my ghetto, son, the walls have ears
Same rumors carried on for years, more and more forties and beers
Reminiscin' on the pictures we shared, coffee park
You blunted on the benches and stairs, and never scared
Nigga violate at all, toe to toe in the square
Elevator ride, you play a corner or catch a black eye
Hot piece and butter, find a bell, taste the fat guy
Back then, Black and Sly Time, had the loudest ride
We went from petty crime, to up north, to federal time
Money circulate, some paper chase for nickels and dimes
Some will die while they was holdin' they steel, in automobiles
You noticin' the snake eyes was all in his grill
From success, come the envious, revenge and sex
In the projects, no tellin' if you death be next
Gamblin' bets, debts turn to techs and threats
We all strugglin' from Puerto Ricans down to Aztecs

a nice cool joint right here. I like the beat switch on this joint too.

11.Same Ol' Thugs
Ok now enough of the games, here's the best 3 tracks on this album
in order, this is the first one right here, Hell Razah spits about Women
just bulding with them on here, the hook tells it all, he meets the chick
and just wants to build, nice storytelling on this joint, I love the end of
the first verse "I lit a cigarette and laughed and proceeded to walk"
that's real smooth right there if you can picture that scene, Hell Razah
came nice. Second verse is even better and you can just picture the
scene clearly.

The second time I've seen her, it was up in Club Cheetah's
Like Solomon and Queen Ashibah, but I be cheaper
Watched her before I greet her, she kept dissin' all the fake thugs trynna meet her
Blowin' they reefer, askin' her to write down they cell phone and beeper
From here I can read her, but damn, she is a diva
A primadonna, might be an anaconda
I crept up from behind her, tapped the shoulder
She turned around, noticed it's me, played me closer
Sippin' on a cold Corona, this ain't a place for an older
Mature like woman, who stay sober, we left before the party's over
I know a better place to chill and build about our black culture...

that shit was mad real right there it don't get better than that,
and the beat by 4th just keeps you in tuned all the way.

12.Project Love
This joint is mad nice. The beat by 4th is ill and it's just real. Hell Razah
comes real sharp on the mic and keeps it 100. This one is strictly for the
hood niggaz out there, he goes in on the second verse...

Drug shipments, welfare recipients worship Clinton
Meanwhile, we got no food in the kitchen
Grandmothers turned Christian, try to warn 'em but he ain't listen
Now it's phone calls from prison, daddy little girl is missin'
Thirteen when she started kissing, she came in late pops was flippin'
Momma's boy, sold his cracks, to be employed
Not noticin' we caught in the trap, to be destroyed
Lookin' out of cab window, same babies in the carriage, now sell indo
Carry an info', the sore losers can't win, so they spread rumors
Corrupt cops, either lock or shoot us
We love the hood with a ghetto respect, Nat Turner
The burner be the mind first amendment, say it, cause I meant
Don't care about those who get offended
We rock like Jimi Hendrix, me and my kindred
Street corner experts, in jeans and a sweatshirt
Teammates kick dirt, for CREAM and a network
Your back'll get stabbed for that cash money bag
You ain't a thug, 'cause your chain, gun and doo-rag
New car, new lab, powerful weed from just two drags
You coughin' on oregano, be careful who you follow bro'
Someone to push your Bentley, but they ain't ready though
Someone to be an M.C., and on the radio
Some sell yayo, it's tricks in the ghettio
Chick where my cash go? You just like the last hoe
Bloomberg fucked up the crack flow, we let gats blow
Twisted colors on our capsule, turn projects to castles
You ever heard of the Black Jews? You seen us on the five o'clock news

this is some real shit right here, Hell Razah did his thing for sure.

13.Who Gonna Die Next?
This beat is crazy and smooth, 4th Disciple came correct, you are instantly
in tuned on here, and Hell Razah just delivers, everything is on point..

It's Hell in here, fear death row, electric chairs
The time is near, riots in Times Square
We sick of welfare, doing labor in the slaves career, afros, no wavy hair
No charity pair, on Black Saladatory Day
We gotta overthrow the government, the Maccabee way
They out to stop my airplane, cuz they fear what I say
But my people got ears, and can't hear what I say
The poor is hated, even by his own neighbors
But the rich have many friends, and traders, ho's and playa haters
Some die, lost they life, cuz of foolish anger
A mad man, only one letter short from danger
We inhabit, live in the land of strangers
Family famin, breakin' every ten commandment
Take ya life for granted, on the Christ's planet
Firin' cannons, cocked at whoever standing
As road blocks to quiet planning
Cops harass us, even though they trespass us
You not allowed to serve two masters
We lost sheep from the lost pastors


14.Angel Tears
This song just kills the vibe after those three tracks.
Re-used verse and the beat is really all the great which makes this joint
very skippable.

15.We Can Do That Too
This joint is right, Hell Razah goes in hard and the beat is on point,
this album is definitely underrated. He came hard on here, nothing else to say.


16.Underground to da Heavens
Smashed! Hell Razah just goes in on here, i could quote this shit line from
line if i wanted to. 4th delivers a banger and Hell Razah just cuts off heads
on this one, no doubt..
I'm more advanced than computer technology, invade your privacy
Interruptions with no apology, take your mind for a great odyssey
Drop a fishnet, so follow me where the prophets be
Hollywood be astronomy, adul-atry rap
The battle axe split your wig back
Blood drip, leavin the track
I got pressin plants scared to put me on wax
From a thought to a debt-trap and two inch reels
Wanna catch up where I'm at? Renew your skills
Concentratin on my next move, lose your deal
Stay on tour like a homeless traveller
Some be wildin out their character
They wonder why the ghetto's mad at ya
I be the champion without a challenger
My .40 caliber take your next days of the Roman calendar
Hangin rappers by their gold chain, at a close range
Scratch your name off the contract, get out of the game
Pull your plug out from backstage on Soul Train
I be a threat at a young age, the Hell to the Raze
Solid rays be the diamond that your girl can't appraise
To the most high in Christ, from my life give him praise

He just went in on this joint.

17.Don't Hate
This is ok, I get where he's going on this joint, I was feeling this joint at
first, I like those sounds in the back, sounds like i'm playing a machine
or something, but this is a re-used verse again so this can be skipped.


This joint is ok to an extent, the hook is kinda suspect, but Hell Razah
does spit the truth on here and when 7th Ambassador comes in
and says "Hit the road bitch and give me back all my doe..." that
shit sounds so grimey, I get hyped for some reason.

19. R.A.Z.A.H.
I wasn't feeling this joint at first listen becuase this doesn't fit the vibe
of the album at all. This is actually ok though, nothing too hype don't get

20.We the People
This is an good outro, the beat is flames but too short. 3.5/5

Beats- 4/5
Lyrics - 4.5/5
Overall - 4/5

This is a slept on Banger, i know these weren't the type of beats ya'll were
expecting from 4th Disciple but it fits the vibe of the album. The transition
between tracks 11-13 is just mad ill, you can feel the vibe & Hell Razah spits
crazy on this joint aswell, the only thing I don't like is that some tracks contain
the same verses from other albums or share the same verses from different
songs on the album. Still a banger. ****Overall 4/5**** ****Certified Wu-banger****

famenchuan 07-02-2008 09:06 PM

Wack album. Bout 3 good songs on it.

FasterBlade 05-12-2009 08:30 PM

always thought this was a slept on project

4th went experimental with some of the beats, worked for me i like pretty much all of his stuff

Razah needs to drop the sequal to this instead of all this extra shit like Ultrasounds

OddioPellMell 05-18-2009 10:15 PM

i love this cd cant get enough of it right up there with Goodie mob soul food

Wu Apprentice 10-17-2012 12:22 PM

I love 4th and Razah but this album was very dissapointing, it's not whack just seems rushed and lazy idk
