Ren - Illest Of Our Time

  • Published on Mar 28, 2023 veröffentlicht
    Want to say a big thank you for everyones support over the years. During the years trapped inside with chronic health problems the main thing that kept me going was a belief that one day I would come out the other side, and be able to achieve success through music. I don’t have a label, and sometimes pushing these things as hard as I want becomes a massive challenge, and I find myself frustrated that there aren’t enough hours in the day to push it as far as I want to. I would love to ask a favour to anyone who has ever enjoyed my music over the years, and it will only take a few minutes of your day.It would mean the world to me if you shared these tracks as much as you can, over social media platforms, with friends, over email. Together, and with your help I can hopefully reach people all over the world, and get one step closer to the dream I always had! Thank you so much for the support so far!

    Stream Illest Of Our Time on every platform here
    As always here are the lyrics for anyone who wants them!
    One two three
    Spitting bullets on the beat
    I'm a sick little puppy
    Who gets lucky when he speaks
    Blessed with a silver tongue
    Chest with an iron lung
    Extra terrestrial, tentacles, alien
    Psychopathic tendencies
    A pathologic entity
    If everything is set in stone
    Then this is how it's meant to be
    Elementary dear Watson, you might find
    Yourself in side the mind of the illest of our time
    Lets get it Popping, Hot rocking,
    Im Freddy Kruger, I’m chopping,
    I turn it up to eleven, the Demigorgon of Oppin
    The strangest thing I’m the boss when
    The danger - lingers I’m plotting
    Sweet like a spoon full of sugar
    Because Im Mary like Poppins
    The double barrel is cocking
    A shotgun shell to the noggin
    Im coughing catchy bronchitis
    Your in your funeral coffin
    No blocking, stoping me not when
    I pick the world up - I’m squatting
    And when I take from the rich
    i’m in your hood and Im Robbin
    Four, five, six, spit a crucifix
    Six six six flow, crucify a catholic
    Maverick, anti-hero ,villain not protagonist
    Words are kind of muffled when you’re sucking on my massive…
    Who’s the fucking illest, who’s the realest, who’s the baddest kid?
    Call the police on this beat before I damage it
    A kiddie called screech on the streets I’m a masochist,
    So far from reach, I’m the type to kill a pacifist
    Catalyst for chemical combustion I’m the analyst
    Of metaphors and similes and synonyms an alchemist
    Evangelist - spread the words I speak like they’re cancerous
    Pragmatist - think before I speak then I answer it
    Pull up, pull up, pull up to the place
    When I pull it, bang, a bullet sang, it shot right into space
    Music for the hooligans let loose on the estate,
    call the police and the riot vans the people want to play, hey!
    Freedom now, has lost all meaning, how
    can we all be free in a hierarchic breeding ground
    The poor get poorer while
    The rich get rich in style
    Ill be a heretic, kill a king, take his crown
    Top of the throne, top of the kingdom I own, top of the streets that I roam
    top of the dome, spitting for britain I show em bars like a cellular phone
    Hyping like Tyson, an icon, go twice in,
    left, right in, I’m striking like I’m biting like a python
    Ready? I’m heavy, I’m Mercury, I am Freddy,
    So eat my words fill your belly
    Like alphabet spaghetti
    I am a rap star
    Don’t believe me the facts are
    I spit fast like I’m nascar
    Don’t believe me?
    Then fuck ya,
    ah shit
    I don’t feel so well
    I don’t feel so well
    I don’t feel so well
    Call a medic for myself
    I don’t feel so hot my brother
    Aching, shaking, stop then stutter
    Things gone wrong
    Hit by king king kong
    A Swan-ton bomb like Hardy Brothers
    I don't feel so fresh my bro
    Things get slurry speaking slow
    Head in Hong Kong wonton soup
    Is what I have for Brains I know
    That I want to spread these tattered wings hold them high
    Banished from the heavens but Im knocking on the sky
    Living with depression is a blessing in disguise
    Never second guessing, intuition getting wise
    Want to sink into the pupil of my eye
    Travel to the corner of my cornea and mind
    Look for all the answers that I never seem to find
    Till then I guess I’m still the illest of our time

    A video I'm quite proud of. We were absolutely up against it filming this over one evening into the early hours. Not only under time restraints but fearful of being robbed of the kit or attacked for most of it. All of these things feel worth it when seeing the final video. Hope you all love it!

    Ren.. doubt you’ll see this but I want to thank you for getting this 73 yo Gma of 2 20 yr old grandsons to better understand and appreciate rap. I like (and listen to) all types of music, but I had avoided rap. Your posts, and the gazillion reactions to them, have helped me with how this music is structured.. and how better to understand it. You have such a gift and I believe you know how to best use it. I hope you are able to fully recover from your battle with auto-immune issues.. or at least are able to fully live with them and thrive. Be well and take care of yourself; your light is bright and beautiful right now.. don’t let it dim!!

      Same, my 17 yr old son is always throwing out rhymes at me which I usually try to ignore; BUT I'm 48 and sort of finding out why he likes this type of music. I love music that tells a story, and Ren definitely does that in every new video I've been discovering on YT. Might not understand or keep up with everything, but I appreciate how incredibly talented he and everyone around him must be to put these amazing videos together.

Or you're just trolling because you're bored, either way, YES. YES let's absolutely do that. And the contribution of one bitter individual or not will not change anything. Touch grass.

    Rap don't usually capture my attention. But there's something about your music - like every song I've heard so far, as I went down the rabbit hole - that's quite litteraly enchanting. It's like I'm suddenly being transported into a bubble of pure chaos and then realizing it's strangely peaceful and even soothing to be there. Curiously examining the twisted darkness of humanity through my own reflection...👀

  • Sympathy ForTheDevil
    Sympathy ForTheDevil 2 months ago +19

    The song feels like an act of vulnerability and authenticity because he's showing us a darker side of himself, that is just as true & real to him as his other sides. We know from his previous songs he has at least 2 sides: the genius side and the physically ill side. It's easy to empathize with these, appreciate them, and value them. But with 'Illest of our Time' I think he shows us a 3rd side that is harder to empathize with -- the dark/twisted side of Ren. The lyrics are brutal, twisted, violent, to some degree. And they are also him. And that's fine--we all have some 'twistedness' in us--we just conceal it to different degrees. Ren in this case is revealing his darkness, putting it on display for all to see. His final scheme lyrically here ties it all together by suggesting he is a 'fallen angel' with tattered wings, banished from heaven. But then he says 'Living with depression is a blessing in disguise, never second guessing intuition getting wise.' His depression helped him grow wiser, more self-aware, & Ren exposing his dark/twisted side like this, unapologetically, could be seen as an act of self-awareness-borne-from-suffering, authenticity, and vulnerability. His wearing white, I think, is meant to contrast the partial perception we might form of him (heroic, savior, goodness, vulnerable, soft) against the violent backdrop of animals fighting each other in an abandoned warehouse.

      Dust 2 Glow Housekeeping Month ago

      😢😮 wow this is a very twisted up song/rap. I truly hope he gets the help he is searching for. To me this song is him calling for attention... he is wearing white as a symbol of spreading his wings far and wide, has rebelled christianity perhaps, struggling with religion... everyday society anxious issues, financial struggles, living expenses, all rolled into one.

    • SandstoneSpires
      SandstoneSpires Month ago +4

      Haha nah, he's just not religious, simple as. Was kinda strange seeing allll these Americans thinking he was a Christian tbh! Why worry about a man who writes bars like 'I am the demigorgon of oppin'? That shows you exactly his depth of the wider, hidden world, and it is entirely not Christian, dude is a Gnostic if anything. Interesting interpretations from the OP but the comment that was worrying about him is misplaced imo. He's leagues above most religious people when it comes to serious existential thought - this vid is proof enough

Everyday I come to your channel to listen to your music and every time I feel this warm feeling in my heart when I see how the number of your subscribers and listeners are rising and rising even more. Me, hopefully a starting artist, want to thank you Ren for being a paragon for us all - a paragon of not giving up and being brave and strong. You deserve all the love you have got and will get in the future. You are a huge idol for all of us - the younger ones and for the older ones as well. Thank you. Also, I can't wait to hear this song, I'm sure it will be amazing

      Have you seen Anna Vaskelainen's reaction to Hi Ren? She's Finnish and speaks Finnish in the reaction (eek, thankfully subtitles for me) and it's just beautiful. Worth a watch and she comes across as a wonderful person as well.

    @Ren honestly you sir are one of the greatest artists to personificate the mental struggles that this generation is trying to cope with. I am truly in awe of how your music touches the hearts of the struggles so many of us try to work through. I can honestly say watching through your channel I am star struck by the talent you have and the way you are able to explain your message with the beautiful diversity you have gives me a sense of love and community. I hope you truly know how much we appreciate you.

    It’s crazy to think that a month ago I’d seen Ren on a TikTok short with the right here right now video using the fatboy slim sample. I remember thinking that’s pretty original and the lyrics were so relatable to my own adolescence. Then I was gratefully introduced to Hi Ren and I can’t recall any time in my life where I so emotionally moved and intrigued by the Bloke on my screen. Since then I’ve become pretty much addicted to everything about him. The more I look, the more I find. How the actual fuck had I never heard of such an amazing artist. It seems like the words finally getting out and the world’s witnessing the rise of a absolute legend 👊
