Fame it a breed wit de money an ting. Se de rich man a glide while de poor man a cling. Blinded the nations all bow down kings Cause fame it a breed wit de money and ting. Fame is their god an breeding money from fame. An de truth is in flames as de youth play this game. Rumors of war … we all are to blame When de nations collide fiya de the sake of a name Deception mek de great seem greater Confusion an Illusion make de crooked seem straighter So trust me de children will cry Every man dem wan fi heaven but no man dem wan fi die see Fame is their god breeding destruction from fame No end to their power and no point to their game I see war … an we all are to blame Why must we die fi de sake of a name Fame it a breed wit de money an ting. An de poor man is wretched an de rich man is king Destruction of de nations is what this will bring Cause Fame it a breed wit de money and ting. Fame is their god breeding power from fame. An de world is in flames as de youth play this game. Destruction as the net casts the blame. Ruination of all for the sake of a name Fame … dat Pheme bring round An de trumpets will blare an de hammers will pound. But de Famous will one day remove from their fame As the wolves introduce all a de sheep to the game An we do what we’re told An de people dong in de east dem cyan come in from a de cold The darkness consume an destruction will fly Death pon de ground with our heads in de skye Fame it a breed when de money come round Your head pon clouds but ya na dep pon de ground Destruction of de nations revelation will sound Cause Fame it a breed when de money come round Fame it a breed wit de money an ting. Se de rich man a glide while de poor man a cling. Blinded the nations all bow down kings Cause fame it a breed wit de money and ting.

about

“Rich Man Is King” is collaboration between dr. Israel and DJ Sep. Available in three versions, the song is inspired by Pheme, the personification of fame and renown in Greek mythology. Her favor being notability and her wrath being scandalous rumor, Pheme was said to have pried into the affairs of mortals and gods. She repeated what she learned, starting off at first with just a whisper, but repeating it louder each time, until everyone knew. In other words, she would’ve fit in perfectly in our social-media-infused, fame-and-fortune-obsessed world.

A multi-talented vocalist, producer, engineer, and DJ, based out of Brooklyn, N.Y., dr. Israel has been making underground music for over 20 years. www.drisraelmusic.com

DJ Sep is a long-time San Francisco/Bay Area-based DJ and producer, and the founder of Dub Mission, one of the longest-running reggae clubs in the world (1996-2019). www.djsep.com
