illuminati gig facebook banner2

Fresh from Chicago, via Sydney, comes Illuminati Congo a conscious rasta hip hop artist. In his words: Having studied and taught Kundalini Yoga and Rebirthing Breathwork as well as being an avid herbalist in the Rastafarian community, Jahns true goal is to heal. Heal the world of its ills through awareness of self and the practice of unconditional love. Hip hop is an art form that has the ability to communicate complex ideas to a potentially large audience, let it not go to waste!

This is gonna be an Epic Night – Illuminati Congo live and direct MCing on the Mighty Black Giant Sound System.

A chat between friends about Friday the 5th of August – has allowed two collusus (giants!) to combine. Black Giant Sound System will now be combining forces with Illuminati Congo for a very special event.

Illluminati Congo hails from Chicago Illanois and brings a concious fusion of Reggae and Hip Hop elements. Guided by higher conciousness and drawing inspiration from African and Eastern mysticism, Illuminati Congo will be taking us on an epic musical journey – Hold Tight and Get ready Y’all!

Selectors Di Genera,l Nealske and Grassroots will be fielding heavyweight Roots and Dancehall vinyl through the newly refurbed Black Giant bass speaker stacks. Booyaka Shot!

Extra Special Guest Selector DJ Orikol has been mashing up Auckland Dancefloors over the past year playing the latest Dancefloor heat outta Africa. Dancefloor Nah Cease!

JAHN THE BAPTIST

Illcongo pfofilepicJahn The Baptist is unlike any other rapper out there. He is able to utilize his mantra of “as above, so below” to formulate a refreshing unity of the higher self and lower self. His lyrics reflect both his practice of spirituality and his embrace of earthly, human desires.

His words are meant to appeal both to Yogis as well as the inner city Hood- with an authoritative demeanor that lets you know he is equally of both. Having studied and taught Kundalini Yoga and Rebirthing Breathwork as well as being an avid herbalist in the Rastafarian community, Jahns true goal is to heal. Heal the world of its ills through awareness of self and the practice of unconditional love. Hip hop is an art form that has the ability to communicate complex ideas to a potentially large audience, let it not go to waste!

[verse 1]

I had sex with girls who caught tourette’s

They’ll never forget

one thing that they do regret they got tourettes

But they will never forget the way we had sex

I can’t help it that I’m the man I’m the best

[chorus 1]

Yeah that’s what i’m gonna do

Yeah I’m gonna give tourette’s to you

Yeah That’s what I’m gonna do

Going ta have to give tourette’s to you

[verse 2]

I had sex with girls who caught tourette’s

They’ll never forget

The way that we had sex

Cos i’m the best

Well they don’t like it they got tourettes

Well i don’t care

I’m goin’ta have my sex it’s awesome where

[chorus 2]

Yeah that’s what I’m gonna do

Yeah I’m gonna give tourette’s to you

Yeah That’s what I’m gonna do

Going ta have to give tourette’s to you

[bridge]

Then she’s talking whole lotta kinds of dirty things… and i don’t mind at all

[guitar solo over verse]

[chorus 3]

[bass solo w/ spoken word fictional dialogue]

It’s the ninth girl i’ve caught you with this week what the hell am i

Lyrics for Cultural Psychopath

[intro]

That way. It’s a new day. It’s a happy day. Finally in a better place. In a better land.

[chorus 1]

Smoke weed every day that’s what I do.

It’s my life and my rights and my mind to throwa way into orbit too.

And who are you to say that is so bad and who are you any fucking how?

And how come its taking so long? You’re a cultural psychopath treating people that way, that way, that way.

[verse 1 – fathe]

That way; What I really wanna say… is that one day, we will fly away;

To a better place, to better land, to a better life, where there is no talking about mean or nice.

Just me and you in paradise, shake it shake it like a dice.

Finally in a better place. In a better land, in a better life.

In a better land, in a better life where there is no talking about mean or nice.

Just my journey in your paradise, don’t shake me like a dice. (x 2)

[chorus 2]

[verse 2 – Sir Funkalot]

Mmmmmm. Who ‘ you to do those things?

Who ‘ you to do the things that you do? Those things?

But give thanks every day that’s what i do.

I’m not contributing less than you.

I’m not a criminal im just like you.

I’m a person with hopes and dreams of freedom one day that are true.

And I won’t stop till I’m through. But I’m through you… and you… because…

You’re a cultural psychopath, treating people that way, that way, that way.

[chorus] x 3

[in a better land] repeats

[mmmm] edit / medley / keyboard solo

[outro – Fathe]

Weed, smoking weed now, I feeling like irie what more can I say?

Show the beat one time, too many now.

None of that fiction museum (Marijuana)

I and I are feeling Irie (Marijuana)

Smoke weed every day….. (and a better life)
