Now this album is on point!! I know some may not accept the message and content of this concept  album but it's beats and rhymes are good. After for years dropping a little knowledge about the Nation Of Gods and Earths or the 5%  Nation in Brand Nubian albums Lord Jamar drops an album totally devoted to teachings of the NGE. Now as a Sunni (traditional) Muslim I must say what the NGE teaches isn't based upon the religion of Islam, the teachings of the Qur'aan or the life the Prophet Muhammad. I won't go into too much about the NGE here I'll just direct you to the wikipedia page about them. Although there is misinformation on the wiki page it still it is a good starting point for those who never heard or never known members of the NGE.
