{     Masta Killa "No Said Date"     }    

After what seems to have been 23 years of repeatedly disappointing Wu-Tang releases (a string so bad that it has rendered the Wu "rep" almost entirely worthless) and snapping at the heels of a 75% release from Ghostface that rocked my ass on the first listen and then quickly slid down the most slippery of slopes, comes a release from a lesser known Wu, Masta Killa. I'm not a rap encyclopedia like others 'round these parts, so the guy is new to me. Hell, it could have been another ODB alias for all I knew. So, with all that leaning against it, I was ready for something weak, but luckily I was wrong. What I got instead was the first Wu disc in ages that didn't leave me with my fingertip on the 'Next' button for 3/4 the tracks, which as we all know is incredibly rare these days with rap discs in general. Title track "No Said Date" is the burner, but the whole disc is quality, with production straight outta '96 (and that is very good, can you say "Ironman"?). This dude has ripped the chalice from the hands of those tired Wu elders (what the fuck Meth, you used to be my boy!), and in my eyes has healed a wealth of damage done by the countless other 'Tangs in recent years. I mean, seriously, did you ever think you would see a good Wu album review again? You know you didn't and neither did we, but contrary to what we all thought, and besides a horrible album cover that we've seen varied about 83 times by now, here it is.

Sounds good. I'm still waiting for the new ODB (aka Dirt McGirt) to drop.
