Description

The second chapter, “Arm, Leg, Leg, Arm, Head: This is God body,” suggests the body is central to, in, and for Five Percenters religion – given that Five Percenters consider the black body proof of God’s existence and central to gaining what is known in the movement as “knowledge of self”.
