    Default Killah Priest-the Untold Story Of Walter Reed




    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.


    4 OUT 5 STARS

    If you separated Classic & Superior, I would've chose Superior. Chose banging but this tape was great.

    This is insane, and just to call it a mixtape is more insanely.

    Imagine what the album would sound like?

    Also second part of the mixtape?
