The first verse of this track says it all. The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad is a man that many have attempted to write out and whiteout of history. That's one thing that moved the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan to rebuild The Nation of Islam starting back in 1977. Many may not admit it, but we're indebted.
In their latest release "Elijah Rock", The Ranks Music pays tribute to the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and the impact he has had and is still having on the world. The beautiful voice of Mahalia Jackson graces the hook. The Ranks Music, a Chicago based hip-hop/rap group, features members of the NOI bringing a new sound and energy to hip hop.
