In his first re-emergence for 2014, New York City’s own Wordspit The ILLest steps back on the scene with a fresh and polished view of not only his musical capabilities, but a rare and refreshing glimpse into his mind and reality. Taking the popularized “New God Flow” to new dimensions, Wordspit wrote this personal letter as an introduction to his first reveal of many to come this year:
I struggle with my own conflict of religion.
I believe in spiritually, god, the natural force of the universe that combines us all as we intertwine with our daily plights. But I don’t believe in the division that religion tends to cause, so I stray from religious sects.
I was born to a family of Christians.
I grew up as a young child with my grandmother, (god bless Everlyna White), and lived out my teen life with my mother. I was given two fathers: One who raised me since a child when he didn’t have to; and the other– absent from my life due to jail (or what ever story he gave me), who found god, Allah, a divine calling to be righteous. So I’ve been around the notion of religion all my life.
The concept of “City Of God” was to show the natural conflict that us, as human beings, deal with when it comes to our relationship with religion and god. It deal’ with two very real perspectives that occur in everyday society: losing faith and restoring it.
Shout out to Dirty Souf Yankee for bringing this idea to life .
Shouts to Max Sphinx for allowing me to sit down with him on the editing process.
Much love to all my actors:
