Check Out This Atheist Hiphop Song Dealing with Religious Immorality

Rapper Ensomniak has just released a digital track called “Morality” and the song is incredible.

Seriously. Listen to it:

Biblical morality/ is fictional/ a fallacy/
If you thought it’s real/ you’re showing symptoms of a malady/
When mentioned it’s so sad to see/ another mental tragedy/
Thinking this book full of brutality/ is reality

I know some believers/ have the best of intentions
And just cherry pick from what each testament mentions
But these messed up editions of ancient lesser conditions
Support people being in oppressive positions
That’s why it’s so strange/ my culture is so addicted
To a book that helped their freedom remain restricted
They’re afflicted to something/ contagious and outrageous
Singing praises to the pages/ that keep ‘em in cages

I’ve listened to it three times while writing this post alone. (Gotta love any song that samples Sam Harris.)

If you like it, too, consider downloading the track for a dollar so this sort of music keeps coming.

        nah, depends on the rock. There’s a couple groups that I listened to regularly without even knowing it was Christian. others are absolutely terrible. Now Christian movies, yeah those are terrible.

      tom, i grok that a lot of people don’t like nor understand hip hop. i can’t stand kkkountry music, myself. but if you know about the history of hip hop, and what it comes from (greats like Aretha and Ray and others i’m sure you at least respect) and the political struggle for it to even be legal, you might like it a bit more.

      it’s a music for anyone who has ever been marginalized, just for who they are. that’s what makes this song awesome. soooo much hip hop has blown goats these last few years, being at the “sell out” period that a lot of the artists are. this goes back to the early days, of Plain Speaking and calling out BS.

      it’s an awesome song, trust me.

        kkkountry music

        Is there a relationship between country music and the Klan?

      • Tom in Raleigh

        I grew up on hip hop in NYC, so spare me the lesson. This is simply as silly as any christian rock.

      Are you challenging us to find a counter example :-)

      I don’t grok hip hop myself, but this one is listenable.

    As cool as it is to hear music speak out against religion, this song is just awful. It pains me to say that I’ve heard Christian rap that sounds better than this.

    The music isn’t quite to my taste, at least not yet, but I love the lyrics.

    This is a very well done hip hop song. Great job.

  • rustygh

    I like those words!

  • roberthughmclean

    Pity it’s Hip Hop the lyric is so good. Perhaps Elton or Burt could whip up a melodic tune to suit.

  • Jett Perrobone

    Pretty good! “Same Love” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis is awesome too – all about gay rights.

    Check out Greydon Square if you haven’t heard of him. Until today, he was the only atheist hip-hopster I had found.
