There are some white five percenters. But they do not call themselves God.

I have read this whole thread and am very happy that people are talking about this,

A lot of the quotes of rhymes have been by a few members of Wu-Tang members namely -

The Rza
O.D.B.
GZA
Killah Priest
Inspectah Deck
Masta Killa
U-God

I have a few other artists that deal with this type of matter -

Immortal Technique
Canibus
Ras Kass
Jedi Mind Tricks
Jus Allah
Ikon Da Mic King
Virtuoso
Sabac Red
Goretex

And I would recommend listening to "Poet Laurete Infinity" Canibus talks about a lot of stuff on symbolism and basically everything under the Sun.

Also "Man Of The Hour" Virtuoso talks some serious amounts of interesting things on that.

Can anyone give more examples of tunes on this type of level of mental?
And does anyone think tahat all the members are on this and if not who is and who is not.
In The Older Gods - Wu-Tang Forever, Raekwon says "Most of my team 5%"
any chance someone could put up a list tunes or any other artist?

Married to Babylon means that I am a victim of the system and a slave to the white man which causes my woman who is supposed to look up to me as GOD to view me as a pawn. Sideswiped by the white horse could mean cocaine addiction or again the global white supremacist system that most of us believe in. On ODB's verse it says 3 billion 600 abc. Your white head came out my black pussy refers to the history of Abraham Lincoln who they say had a black grandmother which explains some of his features and some say the reason he's on the penny with his face going the other way. It also explains the fact that all human beings are descendants of Africans. All races come from Black which has been scientifically proven which makes the ideology of white supremacy ridiculous. The Black gene is the oldest and the most dominant. This is why they dont teach this in school. This is y there is such a concerted effort by Eugenicists to destroy Black people worldwide. When he says I ran ripvan winkle all forests mountains...he's referring to the time in history when the original man ruled and after the creation of the grafted wicked devil they had to run him out of Heaven/Eden/Africa/Pangaea/Asia or whatever you wana call it because he couldn't survive in the heat and was rebellious to the natural universal laws so they had to run him into the caves and hillsides of Europe because he was not agreeable to get along with in peace. As you can see what they have done with the Earth today with the science of islam while suppressing the masses with their false corrupted version of christ-insanity. When he says Tarzan in a jar and then came out Jane, flinstones in my gravel pit, he's speaking on the scientific, process of breaking the original black gene down (grafting) to bring out the albino mutation and stabilize it (the white race). That's the story of Yacub. The result is the caveman and woman, Jane and Flintstones, respectively. Gravel Pit is the black woman's vagina, the black hole from which all things come from. And Rza says Fine-wine vintage, walked trillions of square inches, meaning as a Black God I have traveled the Earth. 10percentage trying to drain me of my mental strengthage. Heavy wattage knowledge cleans the clots or blockages placed in ourmindbythe devils when they stuck pins and needles in ourheadsmadeusbelieve that there is a God in the sky somewhere that's going to save us and in our ignorance made human beings slaves to them so we as gods of all races need the proper knowledge but no race more in need than the original black man and woman who is perishing in Satan's World.

Boar's Head is referring to a famous supplier of Deli meats so he is referring to the meat industry. The human body was not designed to consume meats or u wouldn't have to cook it. then u season it to make it taste like vegetables. So dead flesh is killing us more than nuclear weapons

???

Human consumption of Red Meat played a large role in the development of our brains.

i feel like if our bodies weren't able to ingest meat, then we probably would have stopped thousands of years ago.

or maybe I just don't understand the amazing power of the American Meat Industry.

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.
I know thers alot of out east especialy in New York.If you dont live on da east coast,lets say CHICAGO.Where can I find 5% knowlege here?

Default Don't let this thread die!

Firstly, I just want to thank LordReveal, ryanmeister, Sun Tzu, and everyone else for the sort of discussion I came here for! Your open and candid views and civil arguments are as refreshing as! I thought this was the sort of stuff that people listened to The Wu for, and am rather shocked at how many people are so oblivious.

That said, I want to stick up for Wu-tang Fan. Give this youngun some leeway, damn! He started off hot-headed (as would any 17 year old who's just had one of their favourite rap groups exposed as a lot more than he thought/discovered that he knew shit about them), but he explained he didn't know what you were on about. Could we not maybe start to explain a little of this incredibly deep and complex stuff to the kid? I know if I weren't brought up the way I was, and didn't put so much research into what they were talking about, I'd be just as oblivious. I'm still learning more and more every day, and I've been listenin' to Wu for over 10 years!

Last, I have some really left-field ideas on one of the lines from the start of this thread ("Australians, Venezuelans, illegal aliens..."), but I've got a bit more knowledge to do on it before I'm gonna start flippin' your whole world on its head... It's pretty big, and I'm no scholar, however the more I look into this, the less I have to disprove it.

Expect some more from me soon...

Oh yeah, and a big thanks to Osirus3000! You explained a lot about the late genius' lyrics for me that I don't think I'd be able to find out where I am. I always knew there was a lot more goin' on with him and his lyrics than I could pick with my experience.
