Above album cover art for Busta Ryhmes’ latest record, ‘Extinction Level 2: The Wrath of God’, naturally it is replete with Five Percent Nation, symbolism , phraseology and ideology. I have written about the philosophical underpinnings of rappers before, who adhere to teachings of The Nation of Gods and Earth’s. The ‘Wrath of God, the albums name, is indicative of Rhymes’ , Five Percent ideology, which posits that the so called Asiatic black man is god and his proper name is Allah. The number seven is of significance since the Five Percenter’s adhere to numerology and call this Supreme Mathematics, resultantly , since they claim to be gods, G being the seventh letter of the English alphabet is of primary significance in their arcana.
Here is what they call their flag or logo, it bears an eight pointed star, superimposed by an Islamic crescent, the moon, the five pointed star and the number seven, above are the words In the name of Allah meaning them. They consider themselves and all black people to be Allah i.e. god. They are the poor righteous teachers, or the five percent whose duty it is to awaken, the global black population to their god hood. Killah priest who was an active member of Wutang Clan in its hey day, was a strong proponent of Five Percenter teaching, presently he has incorporated Hindu and Buddhist teaching and spirituality, into his ideology and album cover packaging for more info see his YouTube channel.

In another post I will go in depth on who Malachi York is and his profound influence on Hip-Hop in the 90’s till the present.Killah Priest and all of Wutang Clan are all proponents of esotericism , Kabalism and occultism in general, anyone familiar with their musical content, delivery and packaging will not be able to deny this.
Busta Rhymes, like most of the so called conscious rappers is a disciple of the NGE’s Killah Priest and Wutang Clan in its entirety . Now I will resume my examination of Rhymes’ recent offering Extinction Level 2.
Rhymes addresses the current global pandemic, throughout the record , stressing that he predicted 9/11, and that 9/11 was no accident . His belief that he is a god, is false according to the teaching of the Holy Bible. The NGE is a totally un-Islamic just like their predecessor, the Nation of Islam (NOI). Islam is a monotheist religion, that stresses in the belief and worship of the one God , whom they call Allah. As per the teachings of Koranic Islam then, the doctrines and philosophiy espoused by Busta Rhymes are shirk, polytheism. I went into some depth on these matters previously in other post’s click the following links for more info, there will be future post’s on Jay Z and his mentor Jaz O and their ties to the Ansaru Allah temple, founded by none other than Dwight York aka Dr. Malachi Z York.
