Default Killah Priest, The Psychic World of Walter Reed Ė Coli Exclusive Interview

http://www.thecoli.com/2013/03/killa...ive-interview/

Jason Nelson: What do you think about the response to the album so far?

Killah Priest: Yo, Iím loving it! Iím just embracing it. You know, itís a good feeling because itís like if you put a lot of work in and the people appreciate it, thereís no other feeling better than that.

Thereís a lot of cats telling me that itís a classic already (laughs). You know they just keep hitting me with stuff. Itís so much to absorb right now, and this is just the beginning stages. They havenít even let the music fully sink in. When they let it sit in and understand the subject matter, then weíll see. But Iím very pleased.



JN: What made you decide to make it 41 tracks?

KP: Itís just something that I wanted to give to the fans and Hip Hop in general. Thereís no set boundaries or laws. Itís music. We make it all the time, so why not just do it. The process of it was that I just wanted to talk about different subjects, different things that I always wanted to talk about. So that was my approach and to make sure the beats, the beats had to be right. I always wanted to do a song with my name, my Christian name, my government name, the name that my mother gave me.



JN: Youíve always had spiritual influences. What are your influences today? You have a song called ďEin Sof.Ē Do you study Kabbalah?

KP: Like I said, I was dabbling into a lot of stuff. I was getting into different types of atmospheres. And you know Iím always in tune with the Jewish teachings. I just went to the mystical parts, the Kabbalah, yeah I dabbled in Jewish mysticism. I got a lot of that influence in there. A lot of study, a lot of influence came in when I did this album.



JN: What books are you currently reading and which ones would you recommend for your fans?

KP: ďThe Life Beyond DeathĒ by Yogi Ramacharaka.



JN: What is your view on the current state of Hip Hop? How do you feel about the new generation of rappers like Kendrick Lamar that are bringing lyricism back?

KP: Kendrick Lamar is dope. I respect him. I love it. Lyricism is a part of the art thatís coming back around. Kendrick Lamar, thereís so much to be said about him. There are others out there. Itís music and music is a revolving thing. Now the real stuff is coming back. People are starting to put [effort] into it, and I applaud this generation for even looking into that. Because itís so much weíve got to fight against, this soft, iPod ring tone type of style. But I donít concern myself with those types of issues.



JN: People have compared Jay Electronica to you, saying youíve influenced his style. Have you ever met him? And how do you feel about the comparison?

KP: I have met Jay Electronica. Jay Electronica is dope. Thatís all I can say. I met the brother. We hung out for a little while. He picked me up and showed me a lot of love. I felt that. I take it as a compliment, because, heís dope. For a dope emcee like that, and for people to compare his style to my style, that [shows] we all work together. So if I can do that, I did my job.



JN: Are there any plans in the works for another ďSunz of ManĒ album or ďBlack Market Militia?Ē

KP: Yeah, definitely. I talked to Razah. Heís doing way better now. Thereís no problem man for everybody to sit down. Itís just that everybodyís got to come to the table.



JN: Whatís the status of The Horsemen? Is there going to be a reunion at some point?

KP: Weíll see how everything plays itself out. Itís too early to tell. But I know one thing, me and Ras Kass, weíre always together. I had a Horseman joint that I held back on this album because it was a little too much. Not that I didnít come with 41 joints (laughs). At first it was 40 because it rained 40 days. So like Noah, with 41, I washed away all the wack music thatís out there.



JN: Youíre hosting Tha Advocates new mixtape, ďDigital Dynasty 24,Ē and the new song, ďThe Orange,Ē was recently released. You seem to be in the studio 24/7?

KP: I got so much stuff. I mean, I put 41 out. Imagine, I didnít even put everything on the album. Weíre about to reign. Weíre about to take over for a minute, man. Weíre about to do a whole priesthood reign. So itís going to be like I got another mixtape [project] called ďCastle HopĒ thatís going to come out. Iím also working on my next album called ďPlanet of the Gods.Ē



JN: Are there any Wu-Tang plans in the works?

KP: Me and Ghostface are touring and we throw fresh ideas at each other. Weíre working on something that is bound to happen. Weíre going to get GZA on it. Itís still too early, but itís going to be crazy.



JN: Tell me about the book youíre working on.

KP: Man, itís just going to be my life. Itís like [my version of] ďThe Psychic WorldĒ of Walter Reed. Itís going to be dealing with touring and some real deep stuff. Itís going to be like a Tao, like a Bible of things that Iíve dealt with like scriptures. Itís going to be crazy, itís going to be esoteric, though, so get your thinking caps on.



JN: Is there anything else you would like to cover?

KP: I have a new video coming out for the song ďThe Winged People.Ē They going to say Iím crazy after this (laughs).

JN: Thanks for your time.

KP: Peace.

"There’s a lot of cats telling me that it’s a classic already (laughs). "

Now we all know he visited Wu-Tang Corp. I like his personality, hate how other rappers mention how they're going to drop classic albums when they're average at best.
