I’m Probably All Alone On This One…

rebellion (noun)  \ri-ˈbel-yən\ 

opposition to one in authority or dominance

Rebellion in the eyes of rebeller(s) is always the necessary thing to do and  in the eyes of authority figures it’s not a viable option for subordinates.

Track 12 on Ab-Soul’s recently released album Control System touches on the departure from the norm and taking action against police, clergy, and whoever he sees fit.

Perhaps coincidentally, both “A Rebellion” and the song it samples, “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” by Paul Simon both touch on departing from something or someone. The Curtiss King produced track samples the snares from 1975 song about getting away from your significant other.

The song also features the late Alori Joh borrowing parts of the hook from the Black Eyed Peas “Joints & Jam.”

 The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

– Albert Camus

Who’s bold enough to rebel?
