This is one from his lost period when he literally went mad. Gripping, though.

This is an uplifting KP track. Can anyone source the sample?

Killah Priest threads in 2017, lawd.

I wonder who my generation's Killah Priest is going to end up being? It couldn't be Ab-Soul.

Thanks for those tracks, Craner - I thought they were all great.

DannyL taped me "B.I.B.L.E." back in the day and I love the first LP, but haven't had the patience to wade through stuff after that, so you have saved me a job.

Been picking up the early Wu solo CDs on ebay for pence and just finished the Michael Muhammad Knight book on the Five Percenters, so this thread is timely.

It's quite good, but not amazing. He is a bit of a geek and has difficulty being critical of anything but the most batshit crazy stuff. Worth a go if you're interested -it has footnotes but is more gonzo than academic.

Cheers luka, I'm enjoying these a lot. Might have to watch Ghost Dog again, great film.

The astro-Egyptian mysticism makes me think of Sun Ra.

The track from Ghost Dog. An early Wu associate classic, to be sure.

Tasty Morricone sample.

KP in full psychopathic, dramaturgy mode on this early Sunz track. 30 Second Assassin, Hell Razah and Prodigal Sunn all on good form here too. Album, as a whole, was a bit disappointing, though, considering the talent on offer.

KP verse about 1.30 in.

Tracks you can't get on YouTube but are great include:

Maccabean Revolt from the View from Masada LP

KP's verse on the title track of GZA's Beneath the Surface LP

Edit: found the former...

Another good one you can't get on YouTube but can here:

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x24h9b7_gravediggaz-repentance-day_music

KP in full dramaturgy, doom-laden Afrofuturist mode on second (and underrated, I think) Gravediggaz album
