"Nature of the Threat" is a song by Hip Hop artist Ras Kass, which appeared on his 1996 debut album Soul on Ice. The song "Nature of the Threat" was considered controversial upon its release. Ras Kass touched on issues such as religion, homosexuality, afrocentrism, government corruption and the history of western civilization. Toward the end of the song Ras Kass makes mention of an author/scholar by the name of Ishakamusa Barashango.
If you are unfamiliar with Ishakamusa Barashango's work, then I would recommend you read his book "Afrikan People and European Holidays A Mental Genocide". This book documents the horrifying history behind many of the holidays that people of Afrikan descent blindly celebrate.
