What do Jay Z, Nas, Joey Badass, Erykah Badu, Jay Electronica, Wu Tang Clan and Rakim have in common? Outside of the fact that they have all created enduring music, if you dig a little deeper you will have also noticed that they have either used Five Percent Nation slang repeatedly or referenced their teachings in their rhymes. Toronto-based rapper Raz Fresco who recently teamed up with hip hop icon Nas signee Bishop Nehru on “Equinox”, rap don Raekwon on “Influenza”, and grime rap star Tre Mission on “Swerving in Bape” for his debut album Pablo Frescobar – and whose production credits include Big Sean, Tyga, French Montana, Mac Miller, Wale and B.O.B, details the influence of the Five Percent Nation on his own daily life in his new video “God Body” featuring Arkansas-based Bakers Club member Lo Thraxx.

Described as one of the most thought-provoking singles from his critically-acclaimed debut Pablo Frescobar (available on iTunes – see link below), the video was shot in New York at the Allah School in Medina and arrives just as Raz preps his sophomore Time Waits For No Man album slated for a fall 2016 release.
