This LP is a classic there is only 1 joint that I dont like too much. There are 17 tracks total including one of the illest intros I ever heard. His rhymes are on another level and after hearing this Lp I can truly say that lyrically at this moment I dont see no emcee in the game nicer then him not even the Wu brothers can match his rhymes!!!

"GO COP THE LP"

Best 3 track imo

1. Uprising- Dope track with some hard drums the beat sounds like a Bronze beat.
2. Standstill fet Bloodsport,Immortal Technique, Tech destroys this track with crazy verse!!!
3. Ghetto Jezus- KP writing on this track is so vivid feels like a movie!!!

just finished listening to every track.....a few songs had me like screamin and buggin out cuz Priest just exploded lyrically on here...his flow on every song is amazing and he just lyrically murders everything..

i will say this hands down n u can quote me on this: Killah Priest is the illest lyricist right now (and possibly ever).

and he totally was on point on this entire album...

Inner G--->i LOVE the old 4th beat and im ecstatic that he used it....PRIEST DESTROYED THIS TRACK...listenin to his verse im thinking like, "there is really is no other human being on this planet who makes rhymes for a living (or even for a hobby) who can touch this man"...he is the KING of all emcees, of this i have no doubt..
the other Horsemen were a little bit of a dissapointment tho, there flows were slow n lyrically OK...i have a feeling Priest might've switched the beat after having them record on a slower one cuz he just flipped out n killed everything with a mean flow n then the song just slows down...

here's the tracklist, everybody get this and spread it around....i have a feeling this is gonna be like a revolutionary album, gonna change things...

1. The Offering (intro) - prod by MOD The Black Marvel for Godzwrath Productions
2. Salvation - prod by Arythmetic
3. Gun For Gun f/ Nas - prod by Kount Fif

SIXSHOT ALBUM REVIEW - Killah Priest - The Offering


I first heard Killah Priest's unique flow and style on B.I.B.L.E (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) and then on other projects like the Horsemen Project (the supergroup comprising of Killah Priest, Kurupt, Ras Kass and Canibus). Killah Priest comes hard on this album with a number of guest spots and still infuses the gangster rap with stories of far lands, theological and biblical references and unconventional metaphors. It is an unparalleled combination, but only a lyricist with as much skill and respect as Killah Priest can pull it off.


"My brains a replica of Mecca, my mind holds the secrets of Egypt
However I stay on some street shit..."
Killah Priest - Osirus' Eyes


"Uprising" stands out to me on the album, with the beat composed of sped-up-vocals in the background and a hard bass which go immaculately with Priest's flow and intelligent rhymes. The joint with Nas is hot as always, with both flows reppin New York to the fullest and showing what real hip hop is really about. However, the joint "Inner G" with other members of the Horsemen Project is a complete let down. The beat is terrible, and Priest is the only rapper on it to save face with his flow. It seems unconceivable but it sounds like Ras Kass, Canibus and Kurupt all fell off on the same song.


"I'm like Tutankhamen with the tools in my garment"
Killah Priest - Gun for Gun


The melodic piano beats create an eerie atmosphere where Killah Priest finds his ground to drop knowledge and gangster rap on both "Ghetto Jesus" and "Osirus Eyes". In my opinion these two are the best songs on the album. With an album like this coming out of New York, its a wonder how people say that it fell off and how joints like 'This is Why I'm Hot' by Mims sells more than this old fashioned pure and raw hip hop.
Notable tracks: Ghetto Jesus, Osirus Eyes, Till Thee Angels Come, Gun for Gun

In conclusion, this is real hip hop and a real rap. If you're into intelligent lyrics that represent the block as well as stimulate your mind, and you're sick of the 99% of bullshit hip hop out right now, then cop this. If you happy with dumbed down music, then stay away 'cause this might make your head ache...

ON anthoer note there really isn't anything ethically wrong if u download a leaked grouprip if u know you are gonna buy it. IMHO a grouprip is gonna be much higher quaility than if I try to rip it myself since i don't know which programs to use and how to best optimize them. I always grouprip of albums I am going to buy or albums i've already bought.

LYrics: 92% (KP's verses are sick, but his hooks are pretty annoying esp: PriestHood)
Beats: 84% (Hits and misses, Melodic pt2 is def a beast)
Overall: 88%

9/10

Great album

This is how I rate Kp's albums.

1. Heavy Mental 10/10....Underground Classic
2. Black August Revisted 9/10....Eerie beats make this album)
3. The Offering 9/10....VERY SOLID, each track is sick (believe it or not but Gun 4 Gun is my least favorite track and that alone lyrically is a 5/5)
4. Black August 8/10
5. Priesthood 7.5/10
6. View from Masada 7.5/10


The offering is tied for 2nd, but I gave #2 to Revisted because it stood the test of time.


Of course my feeling for this album can change at any time...

i received a PM from chambermusik staff that there was a DL link for this album. i was coming up in here ready to ban fools but the link was deleted. lucky for the guy who posted the link cuz your ass would've been grass if i got here beforehand.

to those who got it before the link was axed and seem to like it. is it REALLY THAT good??? i see people praising this album like its the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

There are some stand out tracks on this album I especially like HAPPY.

after listening to this front to back twice i think this is a solid effort from KP. not as good as you people are hyping it to be but not bad in the least.

BTW, immortal technique had arguably the best verse on this whole album. this guy nukes every track he's on.

07's Classic:

http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m267/DeeInfamous001/priest.jpg

The Offering (Intro) - 4.5/5
Salvation - 5/5
Gun For Gun - 5/5 I had this 4.5/5 but shit after a few more listens, this is a sick sick banger.
How Many - 4.5/5 Another rating change, I had this 4/5 but man this is my 4th time listining to the album and I love it more and more.
Uprising- 5/5 Been Bumping this for a few days now...EDIT: Had this at 4.5 now 5. AMAZING!!!!!
Melodic - 5/5
Priesthood - 5/5 I am in love with this track.
Inner G - 3.5/5 (this track is a fucking mess...Kurupt's rhymes and flow suck ass, and I am really disappointed at Canibus here. Ras-Kass was decent.
Ghetto Jezus - 4.5/5
The Offering - 5/5 Classic.
Truth B Told - 5/5 This shit is serious
Osirus Eyes - 5/5 The begginging of this (the way he flows) reminds me of something Nas did in the past. Sick anyway I Love this track though.
Stand Still - 5/5 This is beyond Serious
PJ'S - 5/5 The hook to this is just amazing.
Happy - 4.5/5
Essential - 5/5
Till Thee Angels Come - 5/5 Some Timbo King would have been nice...oh well lol


Wow the back-end of the album is amazing. One thing I hate is when an album is banging but it dies out at the end. Not this one. I can say the weak stuff is at the begging of the album. I rate this album 5/5 This is the best album of 07 thus far.

Listened to it twice through...

It's a good album.

Positives:
Some really excellent production
Killah Priest is an awesome MC

Negatives:
Not too many impressive guest spots (exceptions Nas, Hell Razah, Immortal Technique)
Production is bad on a few tracks
Some bad hooks (I hate hooks where it sounds like they're yelling or chanting or something)

I'd have to say Melodic, The Offering, PJs, Happy, and Osirus Eyes are my favorites. They blend in dope production, MCin, and better hooks

deadlymelody
08-25-2007, 04:07 PM
I will say that this album is near or at the level of Cilvaringz' effort, although lyrically The Offering is far superior. This is better than Renaissance Child, but it still doesn't reach The Great Migration's level. Man, what an album The Great Migration is!

1st off the CD is bang'n^O^ last weekend i went to they only FYE & Circuit City in my city Melbourne, Florida. neather of them had it, so i was gonna order it online right @ the store in C-City. but it said it was back order so i ordered it from amazon right there.

so i got home from work today checked the mailbox saw the lil slip 4 a package 2 big 4 the mailbox, so i was like "IT's HERE PREIST:lmao:" ran over 2 the condo office got my package, riped the box open eyes got big like oh shit, so i ran back 2 my condo up the stairs yelling killah priest, lol. when i got in my unit i was like which stereo should i give the 1st spin. so popped into the home theater dvd player, to blast it over my 5.1 Cerwin Vega Surround. and just sat back on the sofa. trying 2 take it all in:nerdy:

the intro just came blaring on, music rap'n. was like whoa. i'm really loving "PriestHood" had 2 replay several times started dancing around the living room. it was some much 2 take in gotta give it more listens. i know it will get better and better as i play it. can't wait 2 hear it in my Car over the 20 speaker @ 3000 watt system so i can play it LOUD:spin: and hear the real low bass notes. and won't have 2 worry bout neighbors.


the only thing i was dissappointed in was NO "Behind the Stain Glass" track;( that made me sad, i love that track the moment i heard it on his myspace page. thats classic heavy mental sound. Also the only other thing was NO moive clip samples, intrludes or skits what ever u call it. i love hearing those clips from movies and stuff, it helps give the album a feeling of quiet moments and gives it ups and downs and feels like all tracks go together. makes the album feel like a movie. Just something i like. :)


Great album!!:spin: Thanx Priest

and Killah Priest just absolutely murders everything on that joint...i was goin nuts when i first heard that verse..

i did that the others came a little slow on there tho...Ras Kass sucked, Canibus was pretty good, and Kurupt was surprisingly good...didnt know he cood spit that kinda shit

I cant fuckin rate it because I went to 2 CD places in Toronto here and they didn't fuckin have it!!!!! I asked the bitch at one and first she types in her computer "Kill A Priest" and I laughed and said no no its "Killah" which is all good cause she doesnt know any better. But then she says "yeah we don't have any copies of that" I'm like "it was released this Tuesday right?" and she looks and goes according to our computer here this album came out in MARCH!!!! I just looked at her and thought "why you stupid cunt!" but then I realized that Canada blows for having their ear to the ground. I'll probably be able to get the album in a month or so. CANADA CD stores dont know shit about music.

I really love this album but to say it's on par with Heavy Mental or even better is just ridiculous. Although Priest's flow is tighter here at times, his subject matter, lyrics and structure are far superior on Heavy Mental. As are the beats, feel and structure. Of course he does spit a lot great stuff on the Offering, some is a regression to more simplistic gunplay lyrics, which at times fit, but get annoying after awhile. This is not to say that this album isn't great though, it is and so is he. He is really one of the greatest MC's of all time and it's a crime he gets no shine whatsoever. Everytime I let someone who hates hip hop listen to Heavy Mental, they are completely impressed.


The Offering (Intro) - Perfect Intro
Salvation - Great beat, Great lyrics, army hymn hook is annoying
Gun For Gun - The remix actually accentuates the flows better but still good
How Many - Great flow
Uprising- Incredible one of the best tracks
Melodic - See Above
Priesthood - Always loved this track, still do
Inner G - Average at best, a posse cut should be a highlight. Kurupt is horrible as usual
Ghetto Jezus - Not feeling it as most people but good
The Offering - Fantastic
Truth B Told - Like it, but belongs more on a mixtape and something else should have taken it's place like Stained Glass or Nightfall
Osirus Eyes -I can't stop playing this track, absolute beast
Stand Still - Great verses with a subpar beat
PJ'S - Great song, nice hearing his son
Happy - Absolutely great
Essential - See above, Priest keeps it going on a long song
Till Thee Angels Come -Good end song.

Yeah, but that's nothing new. That skeleton hands shit gets me pumpin'. Kurupt though...goddamn

"You're lookin' too closely
And I don't wanna have to bust ya eyes...
Fuck it. FUCK ya eyes! FUCK ya momma!"

It reminds me of Masta Killa on Wu-Banga 101. Flow is different, but it's so deadly.

"You drop, nigga, you shot. Screamin' like a bitch!"

And yeah, 4th owned that beat.....fuck of a lot better than Horsementality.

On a side note, I went to the biggest HMV in london to get this and they were sold out, so I asked the guy on the computer to check the database to see which other stores had it in stock. He told me that the HMV further down had four so I rushed out and picked it up.....im glad I did.

1. The offering **3/4. I just wasnt felling it. nice beat.
2. Salvation ***. nice sweet track.
3. Gun 4 gun. ***1/4. nas is dope on this one. lyrically this song kicks butt!
4. how many ****. I love the sound and killah priest flow.
5. uprising ***3/4. A near excellent track.
6. melodic part2. ***1/2. nice beat.
7. Preisthood. ****1/2. I think this is a banger.
8. Inner ****. The beat isnt really banger quality yet. its just lyricaly awesome.
9. gheto jesus. ***1/2. decent track
10. The offering ***. killah is the goat
11. Truth b told. ****1/2. probaly my fav track on the album. I like the story how gayfen didnt think kp was worth it.
12. osirus eyes. ***
13. standstill. ***1/2. nice specail apearence by immortal tecnique
14. pj's. ****. this song is cool.
15. happy ****1/4. such a beautiful song
16. essential. **3/4. my least fav track.
17, angels. ***1/2. nice song

thats my review.after 1 soin. i guess its really good. not a classic or a banger. my opinion will change. this is the second kp album I ever bought.
heavy mental is still the better album. when I first bought heavy mental I thought half of the album was boring. 2 years later its a classic for me. maybe the offering will be a classic for me. im not bashing this album but I think black market militia album is slighty better then the offering.

Killah Priest :: The Offering :: Good Hands Records (http://www.myspace.com/goodhandsrecords)
as reviewed by Arthur Gailes Sometimes, a person's greatest blessing can be his greatest curse in disguise. When GZA put Killah Priest's "B.I.B.L.E." on "Liquid Swords" it gave the world a glimpse into the mind and talents of Killah Priest. At the same time, it pigeon-holed him into the role of a second-tier Wu-Tang affiliate. Twelve years after his record debut, and nearly a decade after "Heavy Mental," his first album, Killah Priest is still hampered by these expectations, at once praised and criticized whether he expands his range or stays within it.
"The Offering" sees Priest mostly dealing within the latter. Aided by the most consistent production of his career, Priest deals in his usual variety of street metaphors and allusions. When on top of his game, he's one of the most visual rappers to pick up a microphone. Everything he rap about gains an aura of incredible importance, as if even the smallest occurrences in his life relate to some universal truth. He re-introduces himself on the opening title track, where he makes even his childhood look as if it had a greater meaning, rhyming, "for instance, when I would color/I'd paint the figures with blood to describe a slain hustler."
Fortunately for fans, Priest is on top of his game here. Even better, he's aided by production that fits him extremely well. Dark and foreboding, the beats only make Priest come off more sure of himself, an undeniably authorities figure. The lyrics here are very complex, with incredible metaphors, references, and wordplay, but are more grounded than he's ever been. Gone are the rhymes where he gets lost in his own metaphors, on "The Offering" he's the best, the most visual he's ever been.
(Essential)
"The (k)night's a dark lord, well dressed, seducing our son
Upon the dawning of a full day, he usually would come
Galloping upon his winged horse, leaving trails of stars
Across the planet; night scene of New York
Comes a life with lights, pubs, clubs with thugs
Mobsters, gangsters, criminals, dealers with drugs
Loud music; crowds are moving up and down blocks
In and out of spots, cops watch for a foul shooting
So how we moving?
My soul scour through the clouds where the moon will sit
Like a wise owl searching through the gloomy mist
Six; I bring a casket down to his tomb
Another child get pushed through the uterus
From the womb, we intuitive
Eternal peace or damnation, depending what we do with it
A genius, or a lunatic
A general, or a fugitive
It's essential..."
The problem with "The Offering" isn't one of quality, it's of accessibility. There is no attempt here to reach out to newcomers, people who are not already at least acquainted to Killah Priest. Priest is only worried about himself and his core fans here, and so while it is very good music, it's hard to get into from a cold start. Granted, it's well worth the effort for anyone who generally likes rap music, but it's doubtful that many will make the effort. "B.I.B.L.E." stood out because it was such a polar change of theme in "Liquid Swords." There's nothing to set that up here, and so "The Offering" comes off as consistently good, or even great, but never revolutionary.
And while Priest is consistently at his best, the people he works with don't step up to the task. Collaborations with Immortal Technique, Canibus and Ras Kass all fall short of the greatness they could inspire. Even the much hyped "Gun for Gun," featuring Nas, is not what it could have been. Even the production generally suffers from not being outstanding enough to keep the album from dragging at points. The beats all work, its just clear that Priest is a class above them.
Ironically, with all the complexity of Priest's rhymes, it's the simplest of songs that stand out most. The up-tempo "How Many" demands that he be put beside the greatest of rappers, while paying tribute to those same legends. But it's the ultra-personal "Happy" that absolutely stands alone among the rest:
"My friend wrote his mother
"Mom, I'm doing better now"
[...]
"I love you momma, sincerely yours"
As the nurse pours
From reading her his letter, body attached to a cord
And to a breathing pump, the stroke she had was too much
She's in a coma, been that way for a few months
And if her son knew, believe me, he'd split in two
And go back to doing drugs before quitting school
But rest(?) now, 'cause your mother's still here
Try to live and be proud, make her heart full of cheer
Fill your mind with tranquility – she's free
Give your heart space and liberty, and then peace"
While it's sometimes hampered by sub-standard guests, and beats, "The Offering" is, much more often than not, a stunning success. It's not the easiest album to get into, but given half a chance, Killah Priest will pull you into his universe, which is one of the most vivid hip hop has to offer. Priest is the best he's ever been here, and "The Offering" is guaranteed to please not only his fan base, but fans of great lyricism in general.

I had no idea this already came out! Can i get a review or two before i cop? Appreciate it.

Cop it. You won't regret it. As the review above said, Priest have never been a better MC than he is on The Offering. He's on another level right now.

Imagine a track called 'Killahs vs Killas' with Masta Killa & Killa Sin vs Ghostface & Priest!

No real point to it, but it would be a fucking nasty track!

I purchased the offering a couple of weeks ago. It took a while to filter down to Australia! I would have to say that it is one of the best Hip Hop albums period. Heavy Mental is one of the greatest albums ever released and The Offering is right up there along side it.

I would rate both albums as 10/10. They are different and not every song is going to be appealing to everyone, but it is rare to get an album where you can put it in and press play and not feel the need to skip a track. It is even rarer to feel that way a few weeks after listening to the cd.

Priest is definitely on top of the game now and he knew it making this cd.

I still favour Heavy Mental just due to the fact that after 10 years it still has the initial magic that it had the first time I played it. I don't think there is anything more beautiful than Wisdom off of Heavy Mental.

This CD is just ill. Inner G, with that menacing bass line, is murdered by Canibus. He is sick by himself, but when he gets with the other 3 Horsemen, his game seems to elevate even more. I still can't see why more people don't be bumpin Priest. I'm like the only cat around here the listen to him. Dude is underrated for real....

04-18-2008, 10:31 PM
wow i hated the horseman track. kurupt just gave up halfway thru his verse, but he still wouldnt shut up. typically on priest albums i end up skipping any tracks with the horsemen. rest of the album was banging.

i dont know what that last reviewer was talking about with immortal technique not comming hard. his verse was ridonkulous.

nazi pope in my sniper scope/ shot him in church!!!!

the whole ish was sick bars front to back. PEACE

The Offering is one of the dopest albums to ever drop in a long time. From begining to end it's almost flawless. KP has always been one of my fav emcees. The album cover is crazy.

i've realized i never took the time to write a full review of this album after i said that i would...


tonight i got a Killah Priest mood and started checking out all the new stuff he's puttin out to promote the new album Behind the Stained Glass and i'm very impressed (as always)....so i figured I'd do a quick review of this amazing album in light of the new one dropping soon..


first off, i love the fact that he put all the lyrics in the booklet...this is a great touch especially for an artist who's so well-known for his lyrics..



1. The Offering (intro) prod by Godz Wrath
awesome....perfect..the changing of the beat along with the changing of the Priest's tone and everything is perfect..
and i love that he just keeps on going for a long time..excellent opening
5/5


2. Salvation - prod by Arythmetic
some might get annoyed by the chorus but i love it and i love the idea of him making it sound like an army is addressing him..
the beat is fuckin great, a nice kingly melody....he starts to drift off a little in the 2nd verse but still an ill song overall
4/5

3. Gun For Gun f/ Nas - prod by Kount Fif
my least favorite song on the album, mostly cuz I'm not crazy about the beat on it...I'm a big Nas fan but he doesn't impress me at all on here, matter of fact u might say that Priest murdered him (even tho i hate talkin about emcees on the same track like that but KP outshines him)...second Priest verse is evil, i love it
3/5


4. How Many - prod by Subliminal
this song shoulda got a ton of radio play (maybe it did, i dono..i never listen to the radio anymore), it's got a catchy beat and Priest just verbally dances on this, he shows so many different flows on this album it's unbelievable...
4.5/5


5. Uprising - prod by Shakim Allah
my favorite song on the album...i LOVE the beat and the imagery from Priest gives me goosebumps..i just wish it was longer
5/5


6. Melodic Pt. 2 f/ Hell Razah - prod by Jordan River Banks
AMAZING song...Priest just twirls this beat around on his finger, the man was born to emcee..
for such a deep and serious cat, the part about the aliens is fucking hilarious..this is just pure entertainment through music
5/5


7. Priesthood - prod by DJ Sane 720
"bout to get dark"--pretty good description...certainly a dark and powerful song, i love when he gets in this mode and this beat was made perfectly for KP..
4/5


8. InnerG f/ Ras Kass, Canibus & Kurupt - prod by 4th Disciple
KILLAH PRIEST FUCKING MURDERS THIS SONG...i've said a bunch of times and i'll say it again: in an imaginary scene where there was a rap battle which my life depended on and i had to choose an emcee to defend me i would choose Killah Priest without hesitation...who can respond to a verse like this?????????
the other Horsemen suck ass on here tho..
3/5

9. Ghetto Jezuz - prod by Jordan River Banks
sick beat, these Godz Wrath cats are awesome...
i love the flow, lyrics, and creativeness of this track..songs like this make me pissed that someone like Nas gets so much attention but Priest very little (in the mainstream) cuz this is up there with Nas' shit....just grimey-er
5/5


10. The Offering - prod by Chucky Madness
the next two songs were released almost 2 years before the album dropped....i love the beat on here but I wasn't totally impressed with Priest lyrically on it..(i can't worship every track of his) i always thought this coulda been a little better, especially for the title track...still a solid:
4/5


11. Truth b Told - prod by Jordan River Banks
one of my favorites...the beat is horror movie-esque and Priest gets so dark and yet poetic on here, saying shit nobody in hip hop would ever say:

"...like the Catholic church and child nudity pictures,
that's like the Virgin Mary performin kama sutra wit Hitler!"

^^possibly my favorite line on the album...
5/5

(i hope there's eventually a part 2 of it)


12. Osirus Eyes - prod by Ciph Barker for Godzwrath Productions
another awesome Godz Wrath beat..

the chorus is way too long but Priest murders this song...love the flow
4.5/5


13. Standstill f/ Blood Sport & Immortal Technique - prod by Ciph Barker for Godzwrath Productions
i've never been too much into Immortal Tech..i just haven't listened to him too much, but the Dance with the Devil song is incredible...nevertheless i hate his verse on this song (and i take it that almost everyone on here will disagree with that opinion)
Blood Sport is dope and Priest is ill as usual, i like his approach on his verse..
beat is insane too
4.5/5


14. PJs f/ Zariya aka Z-Man - prod by Ben Grymm
smooth loveliness..Priest displays the versatility and puts together a dope song (another one that the general public would love if it were getting the radio play it deserves)
5/5


15. Happy f/ Stori James prod by Shakim Allah
i skip this song alot but that doesn't mean i think it's bad....again, it's a display of Priest's versatility but alota times i just don't feel like hearing it...it's a dope (deep) song and i love the beat flip and stuff but----like i said, i skip it alot
4/5


16. Essential - prod by DJ Huggy
a nice outro type of song...3 solid verses
4/5


17. BONUS: Till Thee Angels Come f/ Hell Razah & Ambassador - prod by Sam Sneed
i love this one....some dramatic dark crazy shit from Priest, just a sick ass flow....his second verse is one of the best on the album
4/5



Lyrics: 5/5
Beats: 4/5
OVERALL: 9/10

daaaamn this album keeps growing on me, I seriously starts thinking this is better than "Heavy Mental". I've listened to both today and I can't really decide, both are masterpieces - I can't remember the last album I gave a perfect 5/5 rating but i'm considering if "The Offering" is worth just that, it's a masterpiece!

the offering is straight up classic, every track is ill, "peep these jewels while you rolling a dutch". shit gets you lifted with the harmonous beats, I love how priest sampled "War" on the PJ's, beat is ill. Its classic priest is the most underated artist right now, he's making ill music on a low budget. While jigga and lil wayne making millions, making garbage. I'll say it Killah Priest Is King of Hip Hop...... "Been through so many struggles only to perservere" ~Cormega

Well said homie, is sad that but true that artists like lil wayne and souljah boy who have no lyrical talent what so ever make millions, while artists such as KP are being left behind. KP is probly the most lyrical mc today, plus the beats are amazing. From the beginning with the intro it hooks you. The intro kills most mainstream songd out today, then tracks like melodic pt.2 and PJs he spits that familiar priest style. IMO, its one of the best albums of 2007 if not he best

I heard this only recently. Didn't like View from Masada at all and didn't keep up with KP after that. But this is totally excellent. Wish there were more rappers like KP and I wish both he and MK had got the 9th slot. I think he'd have brought a lot to the Wu as a full member.
