Exquisitely timed to coincide with yesterday's announcement that scientists at the Cern Large Hadron Collider in Geneva had finally identified the elusive subatomic Higgs Boson particle—which is thought to be the key to differentiating matter from non-matter, and so therefore responsible for everything in the universe—Kanye West and Pusha T released a fittingly amazing new record called "New God Flow." It samples a snippet from Ghostface Killah's 2001 "Mighty Healthy," on which Ghost re-interpolates a rhyme Sir Ibu rapped on "Divine Force's" 1987 nugget "Holy War." Coming on the heels of Pusha T's recent and bone-chilling Drake diss, "Exodus 23:1," it definitely evidences Kanye's assertion that his Good Music collective runs this shit today. And here is a wonderful video of Stephen Hawking discussing the discovery, and how it cost him the $100 he'd bet Michigan University physicist Gordon Kane twelve years ago that Higgs boson would never be found—and then smiling. Divine Force were friends with Big Daddy Kane, and members, like Ghostface, of the Five Percent Nation of Islam, a.k.a. The Gods.
