    Default How Wu know so much smart shit

    I just been listening to my "View From Masada" album by Killah Priest and my favourite song is Maccabean Revolt. So anyways I listening to it and start thinking what the hell is the Maccabean revolt, and I find this out. The Maccabean Revolt occured in Isreal between 174 - 164 BC when the Greeks had rule of Isreal they tried to crush the jewish religion in Isreal "The greatest outrage committed by Antiochus IV occurred in 167 B.C. when he entered the Temple in Jerusalm, erected an altar to the pagan god Zeus, and sacrificed a pig on it. That desecration, dated as the 25th of Kislev according to the Bible Calender, triggered the Maccabean Revolt by the Hasmoneans. Their eventual victory and cleansing of the Temple is still commemorated by Jews today by the annual Festival of Hanukkah."

    HOW THE FUCK KILLAH PRIEST LEARN THAT SHIT?

    There's so many examples of their extensive knowledge of history like in "Daily Routine" Rza makes the reference to Kermit which is what the Egyptians called Egypt "Before Egpyt was called Kermit before the bloods and crips tomahawks and pimps"

    they went to the University of Self
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    Really? Well how many books in your journey through wisdom have you studied about the Maccabean Revolt? And you saying this thread is stupid? What the hell does "read a book from various authers" mean? Shit God don't know why you had to come at me like that, but perhaps you should take time to study your grammatical errors before labeling something as "stupid". PEACE

    Yeah I agree. As much as I love Wu, just because they quote something from a history book doesn't mean they're "smart". I'm all for self education, but let's be realistic...do you really think if you were to go up to those guys and ask them about the 12 tribes of Israel that they would even know or give a shit? Maybe Killah Priest. I picked up the Wu Manual and was really disappointed. A lot of RZA's theories just seemed a little too much like jibberish.

    Who gives a fuck about the Maccabean Revolt? Who cares about so-called wisdom if you can't do shit with it.
