Killah Priest - Red Eyed Fly - April 21, 2006

Remember when I said that Wu-Tang was hitting Austin in a big way this year?!? So this Friday, April 21st, Killah Priest will be hitting Red Eyed Fly hard! Definitely promoting his upcoming album "The Offering".... Also performing will be M.O.S (Master of Self) and Notion.

Hope everyone had a good Easter! I spent mine with my buddy Vikas for his bday... at an Indian "strip club"... no nudity... so imagine a cross between ISA (Indian Students Association) talent show and Bollywood movie... good times! :)


Killah Priest returned to rapping in 1995, appearing on several Wu projects. All of his cameos were noteworthy, but his role on Liquid Swords earned special attention. By the end of 1996, he formed his own side project, the Sunz of Man. In 1997, GZA suggested to Geffen that they sign Killah Priest, and the label took his advice. Killah worked on the album with True Master and 4th Disciple, two producers associated with the Clan. The resulting album, Heavy Mental, was dense with religious imagery and filled with evocative sounds. It received excellent reviews upon its March 1998 release and was a respectable commercial success, debuting at number 24 on the pop charts. Killah Priest issued his second album, View from Masada, in the spring of 2000, further bolstering his status as one of the most compelling solo artists in the Wu-Tang stable.
