Killah Priest - Heavy Mental
So you have Liquid Swords, right? The last song from that album, B.I.B.L.E., was not GZA, but this guy. But the song was deemed so compelling by RZA and company that they had to place it as the bookend to the Genius' classic album. Then, Killah Priest got to do his solo album between Wu releases, and this is it. Really, it should have been KP over Cappadonna for the last roster spot in the Clan after ODB got locked up, but for whatever reason they picked Cappa, who probably would have been like the fourth best member of Killarmy. KP's gravely voice dominates over classical-era Wu production; so if you love Liquid Swords, Heavy Mental should find good rotation in yr iTunes.
