Talking ISIS: Talking Nuke Or Talk (Love & Freedom Are Most Wanted)
“Allah commands the doing of good,
he forbids all shameful deeds.“
This is what the Koran says,
this is what ISIS must respect.
In the Middle East the spiral of violence
is heading towards nuclear war.
ISIS now better takes a step
for getting to the table to show respect.
Voices are there that say:
“Bomb the radicals to the table!“
“Bomb terror out of existence!“
It’s nuke or talk, peace or world war.
Love and Freedom are most wanted!
The answer is the doing of good,
not the doing of shameful deeds.
The answer is human unity,
not torture, killing, greed, rape and insanity.
That’s why I say to you:
“Turn your eyes more to the coming light
and less to any immediate darkness.
So the light grows always.“

After MGK sent shots Eminem's way with "Rap Devil," Em is ready to fire back with an eviscerating cut. "KILLSHOT" is exactly that, a diss track featuring Eminem tapping into his signature anger and going for MGK's throat by way of advanced wordplay. While the game is constantly changing, even in the forum of a diss track, Eminem keeps finding new ways of moving music forward.
Em hits Kells where it hurts, clowning everything from his career to his fashion sense, to his attempts at starting beef with Bay Area rapper G-Eazy. Did Eminem take out MGK with this one? Press play and find out which artist is walking away from this beef as the victor.
Producer-singer-songwriter-DJ-everything else rhêtorík bares his soul on ‘Behind Closed Doors.’ The EP is a sum of his whimsy and his triumphs, a showcase of his insecurities, but also a promise to himself and to his fans that there will be light in their lives. Across five songs and in 20 minutes, rhêtorík makes quick work of what hurts him and how he’s learned to heal himself.
“I took a year from 24 to 25, where I went completely stone-cold sober, really got into the vlogging, and just took a year of internal reflection,” he told DJBooth. His reflections led him to question himself and his motives, and ‘Behind Closed Doors’ is the immediate product of his weighty introspection. The indie-meets-EDM influences on the project undoubtedly move music forward, but it’s rhêtorík’s hopeful message that makes him a truly enduring artist.
