Killah Priest, Wu-Tang

Another Priest Album: Mr. Universe

It seems that every moon cycle Killah Priest manages to drop another album. This time around he got one with Jordan River Banks again, after the 2020 The Third Eye In Technicolor. The album continues the current style Priest has managed since Rocket To Nebula, also back in 2020. So it might not be everyone’s cup of tea.

And if you are wondering what Priest has been up to, you can visit his Bandcamp to find Rocket To Nebula, The Third Eye In Technicolor, The Last Ride with the HRMN, Ragnarok, The Goddess and The Priest with Bliss, and Savage Sanctuary with The Holocaust/Warcloud.

What is missing from this list of the last two years is Lord Sun Heavy Mental 1.1, Summer End Cafe, Divine Intervention with True Master, The Three Fantastic Supermen Epic, and Horrah Scope.

As you can see, Priest has been very consistent in his output of music.

Ol' Dirty Bastard, The RZA

Where did this ODB track come from?

Pretty sick tune that crossed my path the other day. An unreleased track by Ol’ Dirty, of which there are not many left any more. Produced by The RZA, and it is actually banging. Too bad about the quality, but it leave me wondering from which era this is. Sounds like his 2nd album though.

RZA Returns With Digital Potions

Looks like RZA is going to give us a 3rd EP in two years with Digital Potions. He talked about this EP previously with the release of Pugilism back in April 2021. This is the end transformed into the Saturday Afternoon Kung Fu Theater EP with DJ Scratch. Yes I am just as confused as you are. (That last one was also called RZA vs bobby digital at one point.) Even more so since there has been no update on his website or in any outlets. Just on the websites of the various records stores who are stating it as a Record Store Day release.

It seems to feature the following 7 songs:

  1. Fashion
  2. Better Than Yours
  3. Flagrant Flavors
  4. Garden State
  5. Rain on Em
  6. Attack of the Lioness
  7. Don’t Cry on My Shoulder

An Inside Story Of How Protect Ya Neck Was Shot

Recently I came across this story. And the preview underneath here says it all. Insane.

This is an older story from 2012, but didn’t see it posted here or translated anywhere, and thought it was a cool story. Something might get lost in translation. Anyway: Osmo Walden ended up filming Wu-Tang Clan debut single “Protect Ya Neck” in 1992. Osmo Walden from Helsinki studied film industry in the 1990s at the Tisch School of the Arts in the New York University. After you graduated, you automatically got a one year working permit. So after his studies, Osmo stayed in the city to

Masta Killa interview with Forbes

With his last album Loyalty is Royalty just released. One that was in the works for quite some time. Most fans know that Noodles takes his time. But he also wants to really do it by himself. And in this interview with Forbes Masta explains his ways. A good short read.

Zilla Rocca speaks with Wu-Tang member Masta Killa about his solo career, working with PETA, and the modern state of music consumption.

Ghostface is backing an ICO

The amount of people, spending their days investing & trading in cryptocurrencies is still growing. Once seen as a fad by some 3-4 years ago. Crypto is most certainly here to stay. And with the new wave of attention, there is the introduction of ICO’s. This one quite nicely, or quite standardly, named C.R.E.A.M. A reference to the famous Wu-Tang Clan song of the same name about money. But also slang for money.

The interesting tidbit about this ICO is that it is backed by one of the original nine members of the Wu-Tang Clan: Ghostface Killah. Known for his vivid wordplay & storytelling on a crime & fantastiscal level. Though C.R.E.A.M. does play a role as a recurring topic in many of his songs and albums. The always colourfull Tony Starks is not really known for his investment skills. One is only left to wonder what to make of this.

One of Wu Tang Clan’??s members is apparently throwing himself behind a new ICO

Bloomberg Critical On OUATIS Clan credits

Over on Bloomberg an article has been published that is very critical of the Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album. Through interviews with Killa Sin, Shyheim & the manager of U-God a reconstruction is attempted of the making of OUATIS. Echoed by these people is the sentiment that this started out as a new record for Cilvaringz, and not a Clan record. Besides that, many of them fell hurt & disrespected by the scheming around the recent release of the project. It’s a nice read to add to the ever revolving saga around this concept album.

Shkreli, who currently faces a prison sentence for fraud, may himself have been deceived about his $2 million purchase.
