Clarence 13X Allah's rhapsody from Bellevue
Clarence 13X got arrested in 1965 just after Malcolm X’s death for vandalizing nearby buildings and blocking the street near the former headquarters of Muslim Mosque. He was visiting the Mosque No. 7 and when the cops told him to leave, him and several five percenters got agitated. When charged in a court he told the judge he was “Allah” and that the city would face judgment if he wasn’t released. The judge not being too pleased at that comment sent him to a psychiatric examination at the “Bellevue” Hospital Center.
Jay in essence is just trying to channel the thoughts through his music that provoked Clarence 13X calling himself “Allah”. Which is basically what being a five percenter is all about.
