"B.I.B.L.E." = Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth

Killah Priest - B.I.B.L.E. => LISTEN

Killah Priest is an affiliate of the Wu-Tang Clan and this track was featured on GZA's Liquid Swords, released in 1995. That album frequently makes it onto 'top 10 albums of all-time' lists (including mine). With that being said, this was his breakout track. It established him as religiously-conscious, a trend that was expanded upon on his first solo album, Heavy Mental, released in 1998. Pay particular attention to how his biblical references connect to the contemporary African-American experience.

The contemporary African-American experience? Didn't we just say there is not one narrow AA experience? :)
