I never watched the anime Berserk, as Samurai Champloo & Naruto were my shinobi anime of choice, but producer and microphone-killer ThaGod Fahim melds our closeted nerd-love with his rhymes to bring us Shadows Over Nazereth. Track two "Shogunn (ft. Smoke)" has a beat sampled from the Japanese string instrument Sanshin. From there, Fahim's flow is reminiscent of ninjas moving through tree-tops stalking their prey: "Wrap shogun / murdering MC's until they soul's numb / I spout our enemies and pull triggers numb".
What separates ThaGod Fahim from many MC's, and what I enjoy immensely about his work, is his ability to create a humorous atmosphere with his skits; particularly with the "Commercial Break (skit)", while it cuts into the flow of the mixtape and ThaGod sets away from the music, it's just so funny you don't even care: "With my services, call 1800-sue-a-motherfucker. There's always a motherfucker to be sued". Channel your inner shinobi with ThaGod.
