MP3: Hell Razah - "Cinematic" prod. by 4th Disciple

Flips Famous Blaxploitation Names For Latest Single From Heaven Razah

The Song:

Wu-Tang affiliate, former Sunz Of Man member, and Red Hook, NY native releases his latest in anticipation of his upcoming album, Heaven Razah. The track, "Cinematic," opens with the sound of a flickering film reel, setting the tone for the track's vibe; as dramatic strings intertwine with vintage movie quotes, Hell Razah is able to conjure images of classic cinema, giving the track an undeniable air of nostalgia. Throughout the song's entirety, Razah stays true to the title, referencing iconic blaxploitation film personalities including Pam Grier and Dolemite, weaving an intricate story that gives new life to the big screen characters of the '70s.

Aside from the rapper's uncanny ability to lyrically paint his own picture of a classic film, Razah's his life has been cinematic, in its own right. Heaven Razah was completed in late March and was originally slated for release earlier this summer. True to any tragic hero, Razah stumbled upon a twist in his own journey when unforeseen medical conditions landed him in the hospital shortly after the album's completion. While the emcee recovers, an amazing supporting cast of characters from his label, Nature Sounds, have announced that the album is ready for release, and will be donating profits from the album to help support Razah's family in these trying times.

The Background:

In recent years, Brooklyn-bred MC Hell Razah has become one of the most prolific artists in hip-hop’s underground, releasing albums with 4th Disciple, T.H.U.G. Anglez, Blue Sky Black Death, and his super-group, Black Market Militia (Razah, Tragedy Khadafi, Killah Priest, and Timbo King). The Wu-Tang Clan affiliate and former Sunz of Man member released his acclaimed debut Renaissance Child in 2007, and fans have been eagerly awaiting his follow-up ever since. However, a health emergency landed Razah in the hospital in April, just after he finished recording his new album, Heaven Razah, to be released through Nature Sounds on September 28th. Heaven Razah marks a rebrith for Razah, who has re-fashioned himself as a modern day hip-hop prophet, spitting spiritual wisdom about the apocalypse, the presence of demons, mortality, and the afterlife.
