Thank you all so much for your continued support over the years. I appreciate everyone who has taken time out of their busy day in order to read an article posted here.
After much thought, I decided that I am going to start updating the categories and content featured here. I don’t really follow the social norm as far as blogging is concerned. I know a lot of folks pick what kind of blog they want and dedicate their posting around a certain topic. That never really worked for me because I like to represent on my blog what and who I really am.
I am a person who has worked (and still does) for over 17 years in the field of Human/Social Services working with families, children, and individuals with disabilities. I am a person who has worked and still works in the music/ entertainment industry not only as an artist, but in many different administrative functions. I am a person who has been an entrepreneur for over a decade and I am a person who not only talks about God, but someone who tries their best to walk that belief out in my everyday life.
I’ve done a lot of growing and maturing since I started this blog and someone very dear to my heart always has told me that everything God allows you to go through is to help someone else. So I feel inclined to give away everything that I’ve learned so that hopefully it will help someone else. With that being said, currently my life is so hectic I don’t fall asleep, I pretty much collapse at the end of the day. I am a full-time caregiver, I manage a full-time health staff and do 170 hours of payroll bi-weekly. I am a full-time care manager (which is someone who coordinates all health and community programs for an individual with a disability), I care for several children full-time Monday-Friday, I am the First Lady to Hell Razah’s (Wu-Tang Clan/Sunz of Man risendocumentary.com) Ghetto Govt Global Movement, I oversee the development and Management of two independent record labels, as well as work in my church administrative office while managing to make time for family and friends, and at some point attempt to work on my own music and book. Yes. I do all of this 7 days a week, I rarely get a break and if you ask me how, I can only spell out J-E-S-U-S, that’s how LOL.
So in my re-design, I’m going to keep a lot of things like music I’m involved with, interviews, Encouragement articles, Hip-Hop 101 for Independent Artists, and #TeamQueen but I really want to add a lot of stuff I’ve learned over the last few years like how to feed 8 kids on a budget, parenting techniques, time management, budgeting, and personal organization. I also want to address things that are important to me because after all it is my blog. I hope that you all will enjoy the updates, thank you all for your continued support!
As you may have seen, the promotion for the Ghetto Government Album has started recently. Although no exact date for album release has been made public as of yet, it is in fact coming soon. 2012-2014 Hell Razah Music, Inc. has probably pushed out more free music for the public then any other camp between individual and collaborative project efforts. 2014-2015 individual projects and albums were released. With that being said, now that we are leading up to the actual #GGO Album, we have decided that the next series leading up to the album release will be dictated by the fans/ supporters.
The first round of voting will be choosing your top 20 tracks from all of the collaborative mix tape releases, the second round of voting will be your top 20 tracks of individual release projects, and the third round of voting will be your top 20 tracks from all of Razah’s individual releases. This series is a “Best of Ghetto Government” and although there is a small handful of folks that are no longer active members, if their track was a part of the collection you may absolutely still vote for that track. Good music is good music and the collection is going to be compiled of the top fan choice tracks. Votes for the first round will be accepted from now – Wednesday, September 30th at midnight.

On March 5th I chopped it up with Hell Razah Music, Inc. / GGO producer Miverson in regards to his upcoming debut full production project “Witness the Strength”. If you missed the interview, you can scroll down a few posts and find it. Today after three years of hard work, WTS is now released and available for free download via AudioMack!
This 46-track project features Hell Razah, iNtell (son of Wu-Tang Clan’s U-God), Fes Taylor, Jahmal, Stealf Bombz, Ruthless Bastards, Stumik (of Ice-Water), Mic Check, and of course yours truly Queen the Prophet just to name a few.
For those of you who don’t know, Hell Razah/ Heaven Razah (Wu-Tang Clan/ Sunz of Man/ Hell Razah Music, Inc./ Ghetto Govt Movement/ GGO Ghetto Govt Officialz President) will be releasing his album entitled “El Raziel” this Easter 2015.
In 2012, Razah released “Living After Death” to iTunes and was his first release since his brain aneurysm in 2010. In October 2014, new Hell Razah music was released by Dr. G on “The Coalition Album” and is available for purchase via iTunes, and various Hell Razah Music, Inc/ GGO mix tape projects have been released for the past few years via Dat Piff and other mix tape sites. Although still in recovery, “El Raziel” marks the beginning of a long series of upcoming/ unheard Hell Razah/ Heaven Razah projects. So I decided to sit down once again with the man behind the movement.
QTP: Good afternoon Razah Rubiez
RAZAH: Good afternoon, Wingz Up, Halo
QTP: First things, first. How are you? How are you feeling?
RAZAH: I am feeling blessed. I am much better then how I was when I first got home. I’m getting stronger, faster and way more independent.
QTP: Raz, there has been a lot of things said about you during the past few years, in regards to your recovery and your music. Your fans have speculated that much like 2Pac, you have tons of unheard music and the exact opposite has been speculated. Folks have said you don’t have any music, you can’t rap anymore and one of the nastiest comments I saw was someone actually said you were dead. You want to shed some light on that?
RAZAH: Actually, I did die. I died and came back. I wasn’t finished with my Father’s work so He sent me back. Those same people that say things about me, will be the first one’s online ready to buy the new stuff when it comes out.
QTP: So how much unreleased music is there and when will it start being released?
RAZAH: The Raziel album will be released Easter 2015. The rest will be released in the right season. There’s a season for everything. I was always on my own time, and my own money. While people wanted to hang out at clubs, I was working on my music.
QTP: Can we please address the “Razah can’t rap” nonsense? Can you still rap and is it the way you used to?
RAZAH: I rap even better. There was a time I couldn’t even talk. I have a new style and delivery that’s different, but even if I still couldn’t talk, I’d still be rapping better then half these arrogant failure ego maniacs out here.
QTP: Amen LOL. So what kind of music is on Raziel? What can your fans expect?
RAZAH: There will be some old style, some new style. I wasn’t afraid to conceptually experiment. There’s also a lot of soul on this album meaning vibes of the songs and topics. Pretty much street spiritual radio music. There’s a lot of prophecy on this album. Raziel will be distributed through Empire.
QTP: For those that aren’t familiar with your forever concept changing and characters, can you break down the Hell/Heaven Razah concept and concept behind the name Raziel?
RAZAH: Hell Razah released an album called “The Renaissance Child”. The word Renaissance means “re-birth”. The re-birth of Hell Razah was Heaven Razah. Then Heaven Razah transforms into an angel and the angel’s name is El Raziel, which means “the messenger of God”. That defines the music.
QTP: Which concept mode are you in right now? Which do you identify the most with?
RAZAH: Heaven Razah. He see’s everything before it happens.
QTP: Over the next few years when your music continues to drop, which concept will we hear music from? Which character will it be?
RAZAH: It will be all three in one.
QTP: What does that mean?
RAZAH: It’s just me, myself, and I.
QTP: *laughs* I don’t even know what to think about that Rubiez. Let’s move on, you recently released a 60+ track mix tape (hosted by DJ Flipcyide) which is pretty much unheard of. What was it and why?
RAZAH: I’ve been held back for so long, I was able to stack so much music. Now I’m at a point where I can actually release it. The mix tape was called the GGO Inauguration 2015. There’s a lot of phony emcees out there and the people need to elect real emcees. If you want to keep real hip-hop alive? You have to elect real lyrical emcees.
QTP: Why 60+ tracks though?
RAZAH: I wanted to take mix tapes to the next level.
QTP: I think you already did that and now have gone beyond. It’s been said that GGO mix tapes are better than most people’s albums LOL. How does that make you feel?
RAZAH: We work hard enough for that. It makes me feel good because we work hard and it’s not like we’re making up some fairy tale.
QTP: From when you first started the GGO concept way back in the early 2000’s with your brother Tray, to what it is now that you have clothing, toys, and community outreach happening all over the globe in the name of your legacy how in the world does that make you feel?
RAZAH: It makes me feel good. I know that God hears and answers my prayers. These are things I prayed for in private and He rewarded me openly.
QTP: You recently launched a web site.
RAZAH: Yes, hellrazahdigital.com I wanted to make it easy for people to find what I was doing, and who is involved with me and who is not.
QTP: You have new unheard music out. For those that don’t know, what projects have you appeared on recently?
RAZAH: The Dr. G “Coalition Album” (on iTunes), GGO USA Volume 3 “Election Day” has an unheard track and some new remixes, Judah Priest “The Dark Ages” album (on iTunes), and Domingo “Same game, new rules” album (on iTunes).
QTP: Besides “El Raziel”, will there be any other major projects coming out in 2015?
RAZAH: The GGO Album is going to drop later this year.
QTP: Is there anything else that you want your fans & supporters to know?
RAZAH: They can log on to my website hellrazahdigital.com and get the toys, clothing, and all of the mix tapes.
