Track One (Timebomb) leads things off to a good start, with an ill acoustic-sounding beat & references to President ObamA & the factors that lead nations to war. The mellow sounds of the intro track quickly give way to the more driving & urgent-sounding track & scratches of "Brazen Bull" feat. Devine Carama, Sheisty Khrist & JK-47. "Shit Israel" feat. Vegas Posada definitely stands out as one of my favorite joints on the album. The Dirty vibe of the organ-laced track provide a perfect background for the ill 5% Nation, Secret society & New World Order/Population control lyrical picture being painted here. other standout cuts include "Take The sun Away," "Reaction" feat Blitz, "Blood Letters" feat Vegas Posada & Father Jah, and "God Is Insanity" feat Perseverance & Chief Kamachi. "blood Letters" features some supreme lyricism from Vegas Posada & Father Jah, rolling in with his signature flow, over a crazy piano line.
"What you looking in the sky for? ...Worship the invisible & die poor-your theories on God & Angels is incorrect-the forces behind your imagination & intellect-the same mind that wrote the mathematics for the internet, devil ain't nothing-inner God Power been a threat."
"Your faith will waver-Every time you ask a favor-the Lord ignores you-still bless your evil neighbor-on your knees praying, screaming for a people's Savior-it's contradictory, save your people player..."
The above is just a sample, or example of what makes "God Is Insanity" one of-if not the BEST cut on the album. A critical examination of some of the hypocrisies of religion-over outstanding production. Isn't that what Hip Hop is supposed to be about? Substance?
