View From Masada
Preaching not from the old skool but the Old Testament..
Killah isn't quite Jesus, though: he's Masada, an exciting new alias which stands for Most Analysing Situations And Drama Artistically (nope, us neither). Assisted briefly by Canibus and Ras Kaas, and through the medium of gentle Spanish guitar licks mixed with generic beats production, the message he promotes is familiar and not especially original. 'Rap Legend', 'Places I've Been', 'Live By The Gun': this is Killah Priest's life, it's been tough. But it's also been pretty dull.
