Words to Our Knowledge, was written by Illustrious and features Rasta, a rapper from Syria. Both Illustrious and Rasta are with the label Bone Chiller Records. Individually, the two are very different but their views are very similar. Both like to create controversy in a positive way and always deliver a small message of hope. “There’s enough serious things in the world and we want to just have some fun but also be heard.” The track is about becoming a better person, the world, life & overcoming those hard times & backstabbers.
