Default Killah Priest - Heavy Mental

Killah Priest - Heavy Mental (1998 )



01 : Intro
02 : One Step ft. Tekitha & Hell Razah
03 : Blessed Are Those
04 : From Then Till Now
05 : Cross My Heart ft. Inspectah Deck & GZA
06 : Fake MC's
07 : It's Over
08 : Crosaids
09 : Tai Chi ft. Hell Razah, 60 Second Assassin & Father Lord
10 : Heavy Mental
11 : If You Don't Know ft. Ol' Dirty Bastard

15 : B.I.B.L.E.
16 : Mystic City
17 : Information
18 : Science Project ft. Hell Razah
19 : Almost There
20 : The Professional


Out of any Wu-fam album debate of "which is the best fam solo?", you better believe that Heavy Mental will be mentioned. Some hip hop critics would catigorize this album as one of the best lyrical albums in hip hop with "dense with religious imagery and filled with evocative sounds"(wutangcorp.com discography).

If I remember correctly, this album is certified gold.

The success of this album may be one of the reason why Killah Priest is one of the most widely known and possibly popular wu fam members (of course some would say Cap)

Anyway.....I rate this album 10/10. And Im not even the type of person that would give a 10 to every Wu album before 1997.

Lyrics, lyrics, and more lyrics. I don't think many people who listen to this album are gonna understand it, because 90% of the stuff is over peoples heads. This album is way too ahead of it's time. Take Killah Priest, and insert some of the most knowledgeable lyrics ever, combine that with True Master and 4th Disciple on the boards, and something totally original and unheard of comes out. There are many classic songs on this album. This isn't a classic to me, but it's 9.5/10. Go pick it up this album is so amazing.

Priests best effort. A really classic album. It goes from Gorgeous to a fucking tyrannosaurus. I love those Movie quotes dunno from which movie, about Judas betraying Christ. Really well planned album, production is good and Priest is outstanding lyrically

not only best wu fam but one of the best wu albums. The only one I'd put on the same level is Wu Forever. It's all about the education.

10/10 Best Wu album ever hands down (and he's Wu Fam). From start to end it is a hip hop massacre. No doubt Priests a fucken lyrical madman. Buy it...

I cant take it, Beauty that was once sacred
is getting face lifts, fake tits & fake lips,
cold embraces, memory erases, from the slave ships
my princess, used to spot her from a distance,
holding my infant, burning incense,
moment intent, for her to step into my wife tents,
now we step in pre-sents, for your ebony prince, the smell of frankincense
was once treated like a pharaoh, with royal apparel,
anointed with myrrh and aloe,
we used to wallow, amongst the mallow,
we had herds of sheep and cattle, now we battle
used to pass over the brooks of Qeron,
towers of Lebanon and the pools of Yechuan
we used to sing songs, upon, Mt Hebron,
how is gold turned to bronze, how is gold turned to bronze

we was the wisest and the richest, now we turn to snitches,
women turn to bitches, in the time of harvest
we was the smartest, worshipped wisdom like a goddess,
now we act retarded, forsook the wisdom of the fathers,
we used to have 1000 flaggons of wine, in Palestine.
now we sip Ballentyne, and raise up in the violent mind
we used to have 100 measures of oil, 80 measures of wheat and barley,
we lived godly, listening to Bob Marley,
until the devils robbed me, chasing us through the African Safari

^^^ Love that verse

Dope Album. I'd give it a 8.5/10. The first half of the album is just amazing, some of the best lyrics you'll ever hear. I think it falls off just a little bit towards the end, it is a must have.
