    damn.

    here's some more fun shit:

    someone actually mentioned the song, i had never heard it. it has pretty much everything you need to study right there. if you want to know whats up, interpret this shit. i forget who said sunshower, but this is a great song, thanks.

    [RZA]
    Yo... this song is...
    Aiyyo Dunn this song is called Sunshower
    Cause we approachin the final hour
    You know I ahh all I can say to my brothers and sisters right now
    Is stay close to your families, and all your loved ones
    Cause this globe is about to explode with hatred
    They killin for pennies, knahmsayin?
    Peace to the Gods, we got a heavy job... yo, yo

    Trouble follows behind a wicked mind, 20/20 vision
    of the prism of light but still blind
    because you lack the inner, every sinner
    will end up in the everlastin winter of hellfire
    Throw on this mix just picks your third eye out
    you cry out your words fly out, and sounds die out
    You remain unheard, sufferin eternally, internal external
    Along with your wicked fraternal from generals to colonels
    Releasin thermonuclear heat that burns you firmly
    And permanently upon this journey
    Through the journal of the book of life
    Those who took a life without justice
    will become just ice ice ice
    It's been taught that your worst enemy can harm you
    as much as your own wicked thoughts
    What devils fought we wrought, and let's annoint
    Now you're bein persecuted by that universal court court court
    Iron hell with the strong blend of rape and blend of sandal
    with rose petals and jasmine, as men use talismans
    Burn some incense, chantin witchcraft to reach high dimensions
    I'm convinced, Allah is God always has been always will be
    You could travel every square inch of the planet and still be
    Ninety-three million miles away from the sun
    Til you realize you and the sun is one, like the knowledge
    Know the ledge to where your heart is
    or fall off into the internal hell that's uncharted
    Light travels at the rate of 186,000 miles per second
    through time and space, until it reach a target
    And once we're freed of darkness, and show em where the path
    Yo as the Red Sea was parted, into these straight
    at the narrow gate, but why that's a road to destruction and hate
    What you thought life was a sport? A game?
    One hundred years short, know the soul is immortal
    Walk through many portals, and those who go astray
    will pay a judgment day, and these few years of wicked bullshit
    ain't worth the eternity inside a sulfur lake
    With dragons and snakes, and any pain you can imaginate
    Instead, I chose to become a newlywed to the true bread
    of life and fed God Degree of light to my head
    It's been said, the fool who sleep is already dead, so I stay awake
    And take care of my brother, and uncover reveal the skin
    so we can see each other, cause every color
    that makes the light appear duller, who's the colored man?
    Who's the original, who's the biochemical
    Who's the grafted digital, digital, digital, digital
    Digital.. yo, yo, yo, yo, yo

    Two hundred thousand million atmosphere cubic feet of air we breath
    While niggaz minds are trapped twenty thousand fathoms beneath
    the sea of reality, they can't inhale deep, devils have em
    Stagnant, a trapping, the .45 magnum
    And shatter bone fragments
    Cops love the block you gettin backed up by Dragnet
    Thrown into a six by a steel cabinet
    Flippin weights readin ancient tablets, back on the block nobody's havin it
    Those who haven't learnt get returned
    You freaky ass niggaz get burned
    Some walk around like they ain't concerned
    with the hell goin on inside the world
    The body of old men molest little girls
    Is it because the girl's breast has swelled
    to the size of a woman, although she's twelve
    The whole world is sick, sick, sick
    Trapped up in six, six, six
    I started off as a pawn in this marathon of life
    Tryin to carry on, wishin I had a bomb to blow up Babylon
    A vagabond, tryin to steal his corpse we're from paragon
    goin in circles, like a ferris wheel
    Undernourished meals I cherish hope, drown inside the sea of life
    Use my third eye for a periscope, and take flight to the edge of night
    To far heights so dark that even wit a bright light
    you couldn't see a spark of light
    While others play ball, ID call, me and GZA Dirty
    hangin in halls, bangin on walls
    Kickin rhymes three hours straight with no pause
    Boostin from Freeport sunrise to Amityville morgue
    Kept razorblade between the jaws, breakin all laws
    Started out writin fables to makin beats on lunchroom tables
    to wearin long cables that hung down to the navel
    So pack some crack and fat sacks of skunk
    to funnel the P-Funk, smokin woolie blunts
    Dust cocktails and primos, shot more dice than casinos
    Back when Wu-Gambinos were called F.O.I. MC's
    All and together now crew B.C.C.
    REC Posse, G.P., D.M.D.
    Ol Dirty stalked East New York GZA maintained Franklin Lane
    I was going to time with the Jeff, when students got slain
    Polo got nervous walked me to Shaolin sent me to Curtis
    Took share time in Marquis, New God general contractin service
    While Meth Chef and Dead was off the Nu-dol
    For white boys who took steroids
    Buildin up bicep tricep pectoids and deltoids
    Back when our girlfriends was virgins
    Cuttin class with Ghost tryin to bag hoes in Mary Birchem
    A Maybeldine beacon night school Washington Irving
    These young Gods was seekin
    Hoes in Westinghouse and Clara Parton and Medina
    Girls who sung like Sarafina
    On the corner of Belmont and Picket Avenue I seen her
    As if I dreamed her
    I was dead broke, now I will use key notes to make G-notes
    So it's always hope
    See subway train run through the city like blood through the veins
    To the heart of Medina, but Shaolin is the brain
    So take heed to these words
    And feel the power of the Sunshower

    Approachin the final hour
    Power equality, Allah sees everything
    Let's come together under the wings
    And take flight, Wu-Tang, the saga, Ryzarecta
    In your sector

    just to clear up a mistake that i always see in the lyrics to this song online...cuz no1 knows the Staten Island references that Rzas talkin about..

    after he says "Gza maintained Franklin Lane" hes sayin he was going to high school at the Jeff, which is Thomas Jefferson high school in Bklyn...its a really bad, rough skool so i guess some students "got slain" ther and then wut hes saying is "Old Earth got nervous, brought me to Shaolin sent me to Curtis"...Curtis is a high school on Staten Island...and then a little after that he says "while Meth,Chef, and Deck was off in NEW DORP"....thats another high school on Staten Island....

    doesnt really hav nething to do with symbolism but i just wanted to clear that up for ppl....i live in SI....


    and one more thing......can nebody break down these Rza lyrics from the end of Rzas verse in The Abduction???

    Rza
    ...the ice cube link u bought off the jew for 80 geez
    was only appraised at 42
    gazed upon by the eyes of multitude, of people
    who would trade gold for food
    i heard Boar's Head kill more than nuclear wars head
    and street sons who walk around dressed in all red.."

    thats an interesting one.....who can figure it out?

    the whole of north america is what he's talking about. I don't know how old this song is but what's goin on in Iraq and other places fits; wherever they've exploited the earth to thier own base end$$$ they are esssentially trading the fruit of the planet away for short term profit. I consider the exploitation of human beings to be in that category as well whether it's killing for oil or making Nike shoes in the phillipines or assisting murderous south american dictators to gain access to resouces. Also the effects can be seen at home rich get richer and the middle class becomes poorer and poorer. Culture wars too: why people like the Wu get angry when some ignorant muthafucka gets on the mic, spits a bunch of bullshit and collects his millions. They're poisoning the youth of the planet everytime they open their mouth. before sunshower starts he says it again...."They killin for pennies....knahmsaying?"

    i heard Boar's Head kill more than nuclear wars head
    and street sons who walk around dressed in all red.."


    This is a guess: either pork or pork eaters cause more death and destruction then nuclear war or gangland battles. Since they would be directly responsible for the first and a bit more indirectly for the second I'd say that's about right. I read that first line like this...

    i heard Boar's Head kill more than nuclear wars, head

    like he's reffering directly to the listener. Like "didn't you know?"

    I'm not too sure about this one. But, the first time I heard the skit at the beginning of Spot Rushers I got a feeling that Ghost and Rae were talking about global warming. Anyone else think that too?

We are not Muslims, that is a MAJOR mis-conception. Muslims practice Islam as a religion and 5 Percenters live out Islam as the original man's culture (or way of life). It's the way we act, how we think, what we eat, ect. We only teach those who want to be taught. Christians & Muslims however would condemn you and say your going to "hell" if u don't follow their religions.

    At least you show your respect. PEACE to you bro.

    do you have to be black to live out a 5% lifestyle and believe in all that stuff?
