For allot of the music game the stream of constant music versus the business is a struggle for allot of artist whom love the process of recording abundance of material and for Killah Priest, an emcee and a highly regarded associated with Black Market Militia, Sunz of Man and the Four Horsemen (or The Horsemen) and is a Wu-Tang Killa Bee as well. But with all the group situations have never held Priest back from ripping it up and down from his highly touted album “The Offering” (2007) to the remarkablely personal “Behind the Stained Glass” (2008) and his collaboration with Chief Kamachi on “Beautiful Mind” (2008) thus Priest has material stored for days, weeks and prolly years on end. And his recent mixtape “The Untold Story Of Walter Reed” (which will proceed his upcoming album “The Psychic World of Walter Reed”) has the strong essence of being an album rather than your typical mixtape that usually contains shotty quality and a DJ screaming all over and dropping a mountain of “tags” on records messing up the listening experience of the song and whole project. Priest went for the later in dropping a mixtape that played as well as any of his albums.

From the start of the tape comes in a hard knock banging strong gripping track that’s five minutes long titled the “Covenant” and goes directly at sucker emcees on “The Killah” and makes the vivid description of what the “Perfect MC” should be and sound like. But songs that I found most infiltrating to the mind is “Gabriels Palace” and “Never Exsisted” because of the lyrics and the how well the beats match the texture of what Priest spits about using allot of references to history, conspiracy and theology yet comes out so smooth even wit his sometimes monotone delivery you cannot ignore his lyrical skill.
In the breadth of allot this tape is revealations and thoughts plus it is a showcase of lyricism without scarficing integrity the way so many artist have just to make millions.
This is real rap music and you can find it in the evidence on songs like “ME” to the very oft kilter yet really simple yet metaphorically used term as the title of a track “Just Some Sh*t Off the Top”.

At times yes lyricist or fans like myself whom love lyrics and stories can be pretty heady if you don’t understand and lack the insight to grab the information Killah Priest is laying down. That’s not to discredit fans for not being intelligence but Priest isn’t everybody’s cup of tea to say the least. Overall I’m giving this mixtape a 4 out of 5 not exactly a classic yet very balanced where their listener can wrap his or head around. I would to have loved to see Priest branch out and drop the safety net just a little bit. Other than that I’d say if you think hip hop is dead you better get the pop out of your head and research one of the best to do it.

I just downloaded it this morning, and after going through half of it, this is a damn good tape. Lyrically, Priest shines. Not quite at the level he was at on 'Offering', but damn close. There's some crazy imagery on joints like 'Covenant'. I dont know who did the beats, but it sounds like Woool did the bulk of it. He's definitely improved since BTSG, but he uses the same drums on nearly every track.

Dope review. Yeah, I think we could of done without the drops between songs. I think some of the songs could be album material. Like Gabriel's Place, The Covenant, Recogize, Sanskrit, and a couple more.

All I could say is Damn, I finally downloaded this off limewire, and I'm not suprised priest
is definition of hip hop. Priest after all these years has yet to drop a mediocre album, All his albums are awesome in their own respect. Priest always comes correct wit the lyrics, and almost always has a ear for some
dark, ill beats that make u feel that shit & say Damn, Especially if you High. I personally like that slow metaphoric ill beats that priest usually drops jews on. he already has so many classic songs it's unreal, Peep "Musifixtion", through milleniums, Peep Profits of Man, Peep "Street Operah" & "Wisdom" Just to name a few all his music is ill, Dudes untouchable. Do your self a favor and don't miss any song from priest, Killah Priest Is a LIVING LEGEND give the man the honor and call him number 1.

They're just trying to Musify a Legend in our time, Support "Killah Priest"
