Orthodox hip hop

I have no idea what he’s saying, but this is awesome. In English the name of the song is “Abandoned by God.”

Renowned Rapper Believes Church and Hip-Hop Have Much In Common

Moscow, 2 June 2010, Interfax – Ideals of hip-hop culture don’t contradict the teaching of the Church, Russian rapper, composer and former participant in the Star Factory Dominic Joker believes.

“There are many things in common – in attitude to neighbors, in street postulates that instruct not to offend the sick, to help the sick,” Joker told Interfax-Religion.

According to the rapper, “Hip-hop postulates correspond to the spiritual ones” and there’s nothing contradicting the Church commandments. “There are individual representatives who are far from spiritual values, but it doesn’t cast shadow to the whole culture,” he said.

Joker also said that there are a lot of Orthodox people in hip-hop culture and even a special trend called “Orthodox rap.”

He urged young people to be kinder. “Kindness is strength, only a strong man can be kind, anger is sickness. Be kinder and you’ll save the world,” Joker said.

“After a chess tournament, all figures: the king, the queen, the bishop, the pawn – all are collected in one box. We come here and we leave this place absolutely alone, we won’t take anything with us; then does it make sense to ruin your priceless soul?” wonders the rap-musician.

  1. Found the Russian lyrics: this was Google Chrome's translation of the lyrics, fwiw:

    It is difficult – to stand at the edge of the abyss
    Not this story
    I asked for us.
    In the past, all that
    What would come
    And then the pain to bear, just no power.
    All this time is ridiculously easy
    Rhinestones glittered like real stars.
    I foolishly risked and soul at stake put,
    I did not see that the game is without rules.
    In the redemption of the night and life derailed
    Do not feel pain and no more tears,
    Just one night passers-by.
    The truth and the truth is not always alike.

    Knife in the heart caught as they ran.
    I know how to forgive, forget I can not.
    Who knows why have such
    Life Line is shorter than all the others?
    Do not remember the prayer to the gods,
    Do not get out of a coma from his injuries.
    And do not swim more, but hold on,
    Focusing in the game to life.

    Abandoned by God, heaven Forgotten
    Do not prepay such loans
    Steel to change the hearts bleed injured …
    Wind in the empty pockets tusuet,
    In the heart of the music player of the streets.
    Abandoned by God wanderer in the desert
    Stone.

    Female pain has long been my trail,
    Anyway, for the life of anger there.
    This ragged wound late or early
    Anyway, the lights failed.
    Fate is for two one,
    When out of the different halves of it.
    But led to the middle of my half
    And then already yours.

    It's simple, do not need reasons.
    Poor warm sun of three halves.
    Following captions will end,
    It is a pity that not happy, as in most films.
    God above, and the people around
    They learn not to hear unwanted sound.
    You – my air, and so late rush.
    Do not breathe – it is unlikely to live.

    Abandoned by God, heaven forgotten
    Do not prepay such loans
    Steel betrayal heart bleed injured …
    Wind in the empty pockets tusuet,
    The player of the heart music of the streets.
    Abandoned by God wanderer in the desert
    Stone.

    Abandoned by God, heaven forgotten
    Do not prepay such loans
    Steel to change the hearts bleed injured …
    Wind in the empty pockets tusuet,
    The player of the heart music of the streets.
    Abandoned by God wanderer in the desert
    Stone.

    In my prayers no more tears, they left.
    One tired-that's all I got.
    But to hell with pity!
    Although gram, although just a little,
    I used to without good
    And lived and breathed.
    But every day the earth comes initially to the night,
    And happiness is greater than the time it is shorter.
    So hard to be strong, if have nothing to lose
    But I will pray that you had no chance to learn about it.

    Abandoned by God, heaven forgotten
    Do not prepay such loans
    Steel to change the hearts bleed injured …
    Wind in the empty pockets tusuet,
    In the heart of the music player of the streets.
    Abandoned by God wanderer in the desert
    Stone.

    It is difficult – to stand at the edge of the abyss
    Not this story
    I asked for us.
    In the past, all that
    What would come
    And then the pain to bear, just no power.

  2. Neat song. A couple of others of his on YouTube are also pretty cool – I like the “Moi Mir” song with the lady called “NG”. Makes me wish I understood more Russian.
