The wait is almost over as the amazing wordsmith from the Wu-Tang Clan, Masta Killa will be finally releasing his debut album. Ten years ago he could first be heard on the incredible song Da Mystery Off Chessboxin off the hip-hop classic Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers. Four group albums and a long list of solo albums by other group members later it’s finally time for the Masta to kill his audience by giving them his masterpiece ironically named No Said Date.
The first single has already dropped early 2003 entitled Digi Warfare with the song No Said Date on the B side. Produced by RZA and Choco, they’re not the only ones that have contributed their creative instrumentals to this album. Production will also come from other Wu-Tang related producers such as Mathematics, True Master and a couple of others.
From the slow moving Mathematics produced Love Spell to the fast paced RZA produced No Said Date, from the lovely song for the ladies Queen to the rugged Silverbacks with fellow clansmen GZA/Genius and Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa delivers a diverse album while still maintaining that old Wu-Tang sound people have loved so much over the years. Thirteen will be the number of tracks on this work of art as the thirteenth letter in the alphabet is the M from Masta Killa.
No Said Date features appearances by all the clan members a la their first classic solo albums such as Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Ironman, Tical, etc. Other artists that will be on the album are Killah Priest, Streetlife, and Prodigal Sunn.
The next single, Queen with Silverbacks on the B-Side, will be in stores this month. The album, No Said Date will follow early May this year.
To reward those fans who have waited patiently for nearly 10 years, comes the launch of masta killa's officlal website MastaKilla.net. Here, you are invited to stay in tune with Masta's every calculated move as he drop jewels, his touring schedule, exclusive music, interviews and more. The mysterious 9th chamber has finally been revealed, completing the Wu-tang saga, and marking a new generation of shaolin style. Must be the work of a Masta.
