#Learn about “Freedom of Speech” by Hell Razah & 4th Disciple & Intro w/Article 1 (lyrics and track)

I wanted to make a #Throwback today on Hell Razah & 4th Disciple’s album “Freedom Of Speech” that was release on March 2005.

I had the chance to talk to Hell Razah himself about this album and I asked him what were the motivations behind it, the messages and also why did they chose this name, this is his answer:

“Freedom of speech is the right to articulate one’s opinions and ideas without fear of government retaliation or censorship, or societal sanction. The term freedom of expression is sometimes used synonymously, but includes any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. Hip hop is how I use that now today still.

The government is slowly taking away these things from the citizens who are not aware or using them wisely. This album is with 4th disciple and it was afterwards 911 happening in America, and the whole George Bush Ben laden conspiracy going on. We got together for few days and just record music together about the times.”

I also asked him to explain to me a bit what was the Article 1 of the U.S constitution, in reference to the track “Article One” (out of the album and that you will find below), and the best way to understand what it is to read this introduction below to the Article 1:

Article 1 U.S. Constitution
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Lyrics – Article 1

Yeah, Freedom of Speech, Article One
Rebel Music, feather pen, sword written in blood here
Uh-huh, 4th Disciple, Razah, paint the white house black
Freedom of speech, we say what we want, do what we say
Live what we say, take the oath, and tell the truth

Aiyo, the Bush’s got plans, to lock down the pan and stand
Take all the heroine, take it out the desert land
The black man, write his war, why, we would never fear
I be a Sun of Man, blood kin of Abraham
Holy wars in Iran, now we be in Askan
Divided we stand, united we fall
Like Babylon, they build the twin towers too tall
In these days of revelations, ain’t nobody could ball
Hand writings on the project walls, written in Hebrew
With hand made Desert Eagles, 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 an asshole for thinkin’ he can fuck with our zone
He better spit that weak shit about them diamonds and hoes

Aiyo, it’s article one, break you down like the parts of a gun
Razah and 4th, Article One

Which way the paint game, we been in the flame, hot tracks
With a mean Shaq / Shaft, after Penny go flow
Son of Daniel, we’ll read the manual to a pro
Over our head be a halo, my tray eight’o
Come in colors like Play-Doh, and kid Lego’s
Most losers turn Judas when they see peso’s
Well alrighty then, we rhyme like David and his mighty men
Drivin’ in a shiny benz without tiny rims
Oh you a peeler, he’s a dealer, so what, we still iller
Now it’s time to meet your parents for real, like Ben Stiller
Chain glitter, like a chandelier, fam’s got hammers in here
So you better show some manners this year
Aiyo, my first name is Hell, last name Razah
We ain’t try’nna deal with no snakes and no traitors
First name 4th, last name Disciple
We them maniacs, comin’ back for the title

Are you anti technology, are you anti science? (No not all
The question that I’m askin’, is this
Are we happier? For the human race, is the world
Fundimently a better place, because of science and technology)
