More info:

Walter Reed, better known as Killah Priest or simply Priest (as "Killah" was officially dropped from his nickname)[1], is an American rapper and affiliate of the hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan. He is known for intensely spiritual lyrics loaded with metaphors and religious references. He is also connected to the Black Hebrew Israelites (specifically the Israeli Church of Universal Practical Knowledge) and the Nation of Gods and Earths (Five Percenters) through his rhymes, and is known for controversial, highly Afrocentric subject matter. He is also apart of supergroup The HRSMN along with: Canibus, Ras Kass, and Kurupt.

Priest first made himself known to the hip hop world rapping on two songs on the Gravediggaz album 6 Feet Deep in 1994 (1994), and followed this with appearances on two Wu-Tang Clan solo albums, Ol' Dirty Bastard's Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version and GZA's Liquid Swords, both from 1995 (see 1995 in music). Liquid Swords in fact included a Killah Priest solo track titled "B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth)". Also in 1995, Priest formed the group Sunz Of Man with rappers Hell Razah, 60 Second Assassin, Prodigal Sunn. Initially Sunz Of Man included Shabazz the Disciple, who had previously been in a duo with Priest called The Disciples, but Shabazz left the group amicably a year after its formation.
