Members of the Nation of Gods and Earths are, for the majority of the time, assigned names based on attributes identified by both the potential member and their enlightener or Poor Righteous Teacher. For example, I was given the attributes Justice Equality Supreme Allah by my enlightener, Ka-Born Allah when I started on the path of mastering the 120 Degrees in late 2007.
I say all this so as to acknowledge that sometimes it is inevitable that some members may bear the same attributes — or something very similar, to others. Case in point is West Coast veteran emcee Born Allah, aka The Apostle Sweet Daddy Grace of Tabernacle MCz, who to an outsider, may be confused with King Born Allah (of Movement Ex) or Born King M. Allah who is a part of Toronto rap group Almighty Shing Shing Regime.
Daddy Grace/Born Allah, who has been dealing truth and standing firmly on his square, with over 20 years of experience in the rap game, will release his debut solo album No Hip Hop For Grown Men on September 9th.
Before the arrival of the LP, the Los Angeles emcee — who some may recall from his appearance on Sway & King Tech’s Wake Up Show Freestyles Vol. 3 (circa 1996) with this freestyle — drops off the album’s first visual for “Black Cream,” directed by Wackoe.
