What’s up, everybody? I just laid down some freestyles. My engineer was like, ‘Yo, you did four right now?’ They came out pretty good. The freestyles come from what we used to do on the block. I want to just start giving you freestyles and take you back to the basics where they came from. Usually they’re off the head. Sometimes I write my freestyles. Cat will bug out because I’ll have a freestyle and I won’t even think about it. I may use the first word you say. They’re different.
When I think of dope freestylers I think of Supernat. Sometimes the only way I can rock a freestyle though is by putting the words down and then looking at the words and putting them all together. So the new freestyles came about because I have to stay out there and give the streets what they want. And plus it’s just time. It’s time for me to get off my ass and just do it.
The “Priestyles” series is all MF Doom beats that 730 sent me one day because he thought I’d sound good over them. And the Chief Kamachi Beautiful Minds album is already done. I even have a freestyle addressing that. I’m about to flood the airwaves and give the people something different and something hot.
And just to clarify, the first four “Priestyles” are all telling a story about how I’m coming back into the game and how this rap industry makes you kill yourself because you have all types of obstacles that you have to go through. You have cats in the industry that play games but true talent is always going to shine. I just got mad love out there for the fans who really love and support real hip-hop music. Freestyles are the way to go if you don’t got an album coming out now or I might just be in the studio and knock one out or I might just write some stuff.
Oh, let me tell you about this. I got a call from G Cleft at ChamberMusik. He’s a supporter and there’s no beef. My people was just telling me it wasn’t up there and I was shocked when I heard that.
Let’s move over to WuTangCorp. I haven’t heard nothing from those guys. They were supposed to have put out some shit disrespecting me. All the internet brothers that log on, it’s all good. I don’t have beef with you and I don’t even know nobody over there. I don’t even care. That’s not even my world. But let me tell you something. They put out something that actually makes me laugh right now. They said they were coming against me. What the fuck is wrong with these niggas? What’s going on with these internet companies or whatever you call them and shit? These internet houses…These dudes…I’m not talking about brothers that log on. I’m talking about the cats that run the shit. Get your money and do whatever you do, whatever, whatever. People tell me they’re the controller of this and that and then I don’t see none of my shit up there. If WuTangCorp got a problem with me and this is straight up, I don’t want none of the log on cats to take this personally unless you’re down with those dudes. They don’t really know about me. I haven’t heard nothing from the dude that’s supposed to be running the joint or any of them. I speak to RZA and I know a lot of cats are running their mouths. But WuTangCorp, they didn’t show no support. I’m not even looking for that no more. It is what it is and I’m still going to do what I do. It’s about the music at the end of the day. I’m going to put out good music and that’s all I can do. I’m not going to be dissing a website. I’m laughing right now. I’m not going to be dissing the WuTangCorp computer network. None of those niggas know anyone in the Clan. I’m not going to put my energy into dissing that website. I got my own website, KillahPriest.com. Go on it and get your hate on or your love on and go on and check it. I check it. Talk to me personally and to the brothers that are on it, good looking. Keep your head up and keep it thorough. That’s how we do it.
Yo, Chief Kamachi is a nice-ass MC. That dude is incredible. He’s dope. Chief Kamachi, he came out to Cali and we got it popping. We did that album in probably three days. We connected. He came with some fly shit and that shit was it. He came with some fly shit and we just did it. We put our minds together and we sat down. That’s how real hip-hop happens. That should be coming out in September or early October or something like that. That’s when that should be dropping and that’s going to be something for the heads. Big ups to Philly and all the children of Babylon. That shit is gonna be dope.
And then I got the I Am Rothchild album. And I’m working with DJ Calysto who gave me some beats on Black August. So I’m just connecting with a lot of cats that I was working with before. So we’re just putting in work. We’re just putting in work for real.
And the GZA let me hear some of his joints for the album. That’s going to be dope. I heard “Paper Plates”. I know everybody’s heard that one by now. That’s dope. I just had to laugh on that one. I think I’m on the album. I definitely laid my verse down when I got out there. I should be on the album. I didn’t hear everything though. I speak to him mostly all of the time. He’s in a good mindstate and he’s happy about hip-hop coming back. All of the good MCs were in a depressed state. Nobody was fucking selling and the whole government is in a recession period. So it is what it is. Welcome to our world. Cats have been struggling so now everybody is coming down to that point. I told you beautiful music is always going to shine. We’re going to give you beautiful music and something to make you think.
I know in my heart that Behind the Stained Glass is a genuine record and people are going to have to go back and get that. People are still talking about DJ Woool. He’s going to get even sharper ‘cause after this every real dude gets stronger. I heard dudes criticize his beats but let me hear them criticize him. Woool is the homie and a real dude so what y’all mouths. He makes beats for me, P. Sunn, Ghost and the Brooklyn Zu and even the RZA feels his joints. Now let’s lay that body in its coffin.
To the cats that are coming out, they’re really putting the pen down. And I’m a big fan of Snoop Doggy Dogg. Let me get that out there. I like his music and I made a statement and some people took it the wrong way or whatever. I was just saying that we all use this game to get what we want. I’m just saying to let a brother eat so we all can eat.
I’m working with Tiffany right now. She was the reporter on Behind the Stained Glass. I’m making some big moves out here in Cali. Big ups to Planet Asia and DJ Muggs. I’m out here and we’re doing big things. We’re definitely moving. I got a lot of shows coming up by myself and with the GZA so I’ll be on the road getting my bread and everything.

Journal Entry #41
What’s up? We’re back and The Almighty is coming out right now. I heard the album. It sounds really good. That album should be good.
I want to touch on my first week sales. It kind of hurt me but I accept what it is. 840 Babylon, that’s my new thing. 840 Babylon is my new thing because that was my first week sales. We’re living in tumultuous times right now and that just goes to show you. Big up to the 800. I mean, nobody’s selling. Even the big dogs out there who used to sell millions of records back in the days, they’re settling down now. So I don’t look for nobody to go ahead and sell records. I just want to say that I don’t do this for my health and we pay for this. I wish that people would support artists like that. I know the sales have dropped tremendously. So I chose “840” because that’s my first week sales and I chose “Babylon” because I’m going to show them how to do it in these confusing times.
Why didn’t the album sell so many copies? I don’t know. There’s different reasons. A lot of people downloaded the album. It’s due to a lot of downloads. And this album is more of a personal album. People gotta get used to that. Artists are always changing. That’s the beauty of rap. A lot of artists, they stay in one genre. I can do songs like “Heavy Mental” and albums like The Offering and I can do an album where it’s all in-depth. That’s the creativity of an artist. A lot of people are like, ‘It’s boring’ but you gotta listen to the album for awhile. The people, they don’t want the in-depth stuff because of the way the media controls people’s thoughts. This is music for the future. This is music you can look back on. I’m not making no music for now. This is music that you can look back on and say, “This shit is gonna last.”
And I got great feedback on the album. I got great feedback from a lot of people. They liked that it was so in-depth. They liked the spirituality of it. They liked that it was uplifting people and that’s what counts. A lot of people didn’t like the beats. The beats are really good in my opinion and I have a good ear for beats. I have a good ear for beats. A lot of people on the MySpace, they hit me with nothing but positive comments. It makes me feel good when people tell me their spirituality was uplifted on the album. And DJ Woool is very talented. I’m known for discovering a lot of talent. Look at what me and 4th Disciple did. These cats, nobody was messing with. None of the Clan or anything like that. Me and him made beautiful music. We made “B.I.B.L.E.” Then I met Just Blaze and he had some sounds that were incredible. I used to tell him he was the future and he was like, ‘Yo, man, I just want to get out there.’ Then after that I met Tru Master. That’s after 4th Disciple. I worked with him on “One Step”. So Tru Master came through and blessed me with that. Nobody was messing with Tru Master. I was the first one with “One Step” and then he came with some ill beats for Black August. And then I brought Godz Wrath to the table. I used him for Black Market when I was originally going to use them for my album. Nobody knew them and we utilized them. We sat down and we did some great music out there. And now DJ Woool. DJ Woool has dope beats. Everybody has time to grow but DJ Woool has some incredible beats. They fit exactly what I want to do.
So that brings us up to now. When you have an artist like me, you have an artist who’s always going to do something and switch up and take their listeners somewhere else. They have albums with concepts and this album was about spiritual enlightenment. It was something different from The Offering. That’s what they said they wanted. I got The Offering. The Offering is me. But I wanted to take it beyond The Offering. But Behind the Stained Glass 1 and 2, that’s the movement.
Behind the Stained Glass 2 is done. That’s in the packages. I got the Chief Kamachi album coming too. That’s incredible. We made some dope music together. That brother is a highly talented MC. We got The Almighty and Swashbuckler and Count Fif. We got some dope stuff coming too with them. I got all that coming out.
Go get Behind the Stained Glass. That album is for the future. It’s something you can look at with your telescopic thought and it will give you some spiritual upliftment.
And let me say this. Yo, I don’t know what it was. There was a lot of different reasons, but I looked on ChamberMusik. I did an interview with them and they didn’t have my album up there. WuTangCorp didn’t have it up there either. All the Wu sites…I did an interview with ChamberMusik and I don’t know why my album wasn’t up there. I just want to put that out there. WuTangCorp and ChamberMusik.com, I don’t know what’s going on. I saw Digi Snax up there, RZA’s joint, but I didn’t see Behind the Stained Glass up there. And that album is a jewel. And that’s sad. And these cats did an interview with me and they didn’t put it up there. I saw a couple of people complaining about why they aren’t supporting Killah Priest. Come on. I’m a vet and my music is real. It’s something like a jewel. It’s something to be taken to the heart. When I see websites not taking care of the cats that support them then I just look at them like they’re all clowns and all buffoonery. They’re falling into the same trap.
I’m not on the web as much as my team but they’ll call me. I’m selling a lot of my stuff online. I’m always checking HipHopGame for new songs and stuff. Big up to y’all. But I don’t get that much time because I’m always making music. But there will be times when cats come up to me from the internet. I sell a lot of merchandise online at KillahPriest.com. Sometimes I get on there and I leave my own comments on my website. A lot of rappers don’t do that. But I care about my fans. The work I do is sincere and I think it comes from a real place. I appreciate everybody. I appreciate everybody who goes out there and buys my albums and I appreciate that from the bottom of my heart. I’m not one of those rappers who just wants to make music and have it sound good but it’s not a passion. It’s a passion with me. I’ve been rhyming for a very long time. A lot of MCs, they say things and just want to make it sound good. But for me it’s more than that. I’m intrigued by the art and it’s a passion. I love doing it. I love being an MC. But at the same time, you have to get paid for what you do and get better at it. I just want people to pick up the album and hear it. Killah Priest is probably not for everybody but you should come through and check out the album.
The Almighty and the Chief Kamachi joints are going to be crazy. I’m really excited about those albums. And Behind the Stained Glass Part 2 is coming. I got a lot of good material coming. I’m also working on I Am Roguechild. I try to stay busy. I’m over here and right now we’re working on another situation too. I’m writing a book and my movie script should be finished in a few. I want to show cats that I have other talents as well and I got other things that I can do too.
And y’all give me more support than ChamberMusik. I gave them an interview for an hour and this shit trips me out. At the end of the day we’re all trying to survive. I’ve been doing this for decades. I’ve been doing this for awhile and it’s always been about who can stand the test of time and stick it out and still be the same person from when they came in. I endured that. I endured a lot. I’ve endured numerous personalities, different types of personalities. When you have a different MC like me around you, it sparks up a lot of brothers and a lot of cats. They want to be closer to it and they want to be around it and that type of energy. That can be a gift and a curse. A lot of cats see you and it’s crazy. But I endured all of that, man. Nas has been crucified in his video but a lot of us have been crucified too.

I’m up in the studio finishing up some freestyles. I got four albums done! We were just working on the G-Ciples project. We’re finishing up part 2 of the Stained Glass. I’m also about to be doing something with Chief Kamachi. I wanted to put that out there. The G-Ciples album is coming out sick! There’s a lot of work.
I can’t believe they acquitted all the policeman with the Sean Bell case. If you can tell me this system is not corrupt, I don’t know what you’re looking at. It’s just fucked up. Word. They acquitted all the police! They acquitted them! I’m not feeling that foulness or that situation. Brothers are going to retaliate. That’s real sick out there. Watch yourselves in those streets. The police being foul, that’s all part of the system. I told cats to watch their heads. The system is unjust. That shit makes me think about the election and everything that this government does. It’s all corrupt. We gotta find somebody to represent us. Word.
Getting back to this album, we’re just finishing up The Stained Glass Part 2. That’s coming out real good. That’s a good situation.
I’m about to go on tour with the GZA. We’re going to be going on tour for Behind the Stained Glass. I’m also going to start updating KillahPriest.com. I know I’ve been coming in here and there and there are a lot of cats holding down my website and big ups to them. It is up and running and I’m going to start updating it now. We’re also getting the G-Ciples logo started.
Shout out to everybody that’s been feeling the music so far. I’ve been getting a lot of great feedback on the music and there’s a lot more where that’s coming from and you’ll be feeling that when it comes out. It’s not going to stop. I’m going to be dropping more music this summer and you’re going to start hearing some stuff from Behind the Stained Glass Part 2. I’m planning on touring and doing a lot of shows. I got a lot of spot dates so I’ll be coming to a town near you. That’s a good thing.
In the meantime, I’m still out here in Cali. I’ve been busy out here. I’ve been getting my Makaveli on out here. Shout out to all my people out here. The Mexican brothers have been coming through and have been showing me mega-love out here!
There’s one mistake on the tracklisting to Behind the Stained Glass. The singer on “Oh Emmanuel” is Jeni Fujita. She murked that and she’s a G-Ciple now. Now she’s in the G-Ciples camp. She got on that track and it was real good.
Also, this album coming out is just part 1. There’s a new Behind the Stained Glass coming after this one. I also shot four videos. I shot a video for “Ghetto Jesus” also. That one is from The Offering. We should be shooting some more too. I’m definitely trying to get 60 down for “What Profit A Man”. I shot a video for “A Shot for Tomorrow”. We should be shooting “Looking Glass” too I believe. We should be shooting a couple this week.
I wanna give a shout to my man Crown Prince. I lost my phone at my VA show so I had no contacts. Pardon me for that. You don’t remember numbers anymore. Everything is programmed for us now. I wonder how James Brown and them did it back then. There were no cell phones.
I’m also going to be updating KillahPriest.com more also. Tune into my MySpace. The Behind the Stained Glass freestyles are coming too. I’m also about to get back with J-Ronin and do a new Prelude mixtape. If we don’t get it done in time, there’s definitely going to be a prelude for Behind the Stained Glass Part 2.

Journal Entry #39
Peace! I got a lot of responses from the last journal entry and I just want to clear up everything. I’m not religious. I’m spiritual. I’m just heavy on it because this album is so deep. I think it’s what my fans want. It’s on another level and plus it’s taking it back to real MCing, man. You don’t have to be braggadocios all the time. You can talk about something different. That’s what it’s all about – talking about something different and being creative. It’s about putting creativity back in the art and back in the music. That’s what this album means to me. That’s what Behind the Stained Glass Part 1 is about. This is only the first half of it. After this I got the other half. And there’s a G-Ciples album almost completed. I got so many projects coming out.
And let me clear something up about all these groups. The reason why there are so many groups…I put the Sunz of Man together and I did it with the Maccabeez and Daddy Rose got locked up so we reformed with Hell Razah and Timbo. We did Black Market. I did so much for these brothers. I put them with Black Market. And then at the end of the day, I think the best thing to do is get this out there because everybody’s a man and I love everybody. I’ve never had a beef with Hell Razah. It’s all good. They’re doing their thing and I wish them the best with that. I’m a fan of hip-hop. Just be real. I know a lot about hip-hop. I learned from Slick Rick and Rakim and all those brothers. When I came into this, I was brought in through the GZA and I got a certain respect for the game and a certain respect for brothers who I’ve been around and I’ll never disrespect that. I’ll never say, “Yo, GZA didn’t do shit but he did bring me into this game.” I brought certain people in the game, but not everybody, but the thing about it is, when I help people and I work with you and if you don’t give a person respect and any type of respect, then I lose a certain type of respect for you as an artist. That’s the problem with me and with some of these groups. Most of these groups are the same people from the other groups, as far as Sunz of Man and Maccabeez.
I’m just addressing a couple of issues. I don’t have no beef with nobody. I don’t want none of my fans thinking I have beef with anybody. I wish everybody the best and Shabazz has my support with everything that he does. We’re all grown men and I just want everybody to do their thing. That should clear that up because people have been saying this and that. Just do your thing and give back to the game and the game will give back to you. I’ve been doing this for a minute and bringing real hip-hop since I started way before ’97, before Heavy Mental. I just was building with RZA and he was telling me a lot of stuff. He was telling me that I came in with my own style and that influenced a lot of them because it was something different and I’m going to continue to hit you with that because that’s what’s real. And that’s just on the music side. On the other side, I’ve just been enjoying myself doing shows and enjoying living life. I’ve been hiking in the mountains. Don’t think I fell off. I was just having a little me time. After being in the studio and working on so many projects, my brain is on overdrive right now.
And big up to J-Ronin. I’ve been speaking with J-Ronin and he’s good peoples. Me and that brother kicked it. And everybody that gets in the game, just remember to stay tough with it. Don’t forget the people you came in with because this game ain’t promised and this world isn’t promised. You gotta grow and you gotta learn, but make sure you’re doing it for a big purpose because at the end of the day, all this shit is trash and all you got is your art and what you put from your heart.
This album, Behind the Stained Glass, is just to educate a lot of people. It’s personal to me. It’s a good album and I’m very excited. This is the true me. This is my truth. That’s my truth and that’s why I’m excited I’m working with Good Hands and we’re doing it big. I’m letting you know that Priest is on point and I’m very on point. At the end of the day, we all have to seek the higher truth and have the higher truth. It comes through movies and it comes through music and it comes through everyday life. I’m just happy and excited about moving on with this new album and with this movement. And let me tell you something, the G-Ciples are strong and I’m so happy that the G-Ciples are strong. I just built with the Tragic Allies and I got so many cats that I roll with. I even got females. I just want to give a big shout out to the females because they came through and blessed the album too. There’s a lot of creativity on this album and I hope artists buy the album.
There’s another issue I want to address – buying the album. I pay for the studio time. The album costs $10. Do you know how much money studio time costs? When we do tracks, we gotta pay the producers and you’re beefing about $15? Do you know how much money we have to pay out of pocket to make this music? When you support artists, that’s what you’re paying for. I’ve been with the struggle and I’m never going to give that up. It’s about bringing real hip-hop to the forefront. I want everybody just to support all the real hip-hop groups out there like dead prez and all the brothers that are out there doing real stuff. Most of all, support Behind the Stained Glass. I’m paying all this money for studio time and it’s ridiculous. And y’all are downloading it! If you want artists like myself to continue, you gotta support. I’m paying my money and some of y’all are just taking. That’s just another issue. It’s about the movement and it’s about everybody staying focused and paying attention to what’s going on right now, man.
And let me make this clear – I’ve been doing my solo situation for a very long time. First it was me and 60. Then me and ‘Bazz got together and we formed a group. But ‘Bazz was a solo artist too. He deserves a lot of respect. He’s a solo artist also along with myself. We were going to do our solo careers also and that was good. That was the plan. Just respect the movement. That was just to give you a little history. When you hear “Proverbs of a Man”, I break it down clear. Everybody’s strong and everybody’s a grown man now. Let’s make music. That’s all I’m doing right now. I’m making my music and I like what’s going on out there and I want my fans to support hip-hop and support my music because Behind the Stained Glass is going to be the joint. I promise.

Journal Entry #38
What’s the deal? What’s up? I know it’s been a long time. It’s just been stressful. The Offering took so long to come out and I was on the road a lot and was getting everything together for so long that I just wanted to get back into the studio and work. It’s done and I got back in the studio and it’s a new time and it’s a new era. Rap is changing and I’m glad for that. All my brothers that are holding it down, keep your head up and keep holding it down. The war is definitely on for real hip-hop. It’s on.
The first thing I want to say is that I just got out of the studio and everything is sounding incredible. The album Behind the Stained Glass is exactly what I want and I think a lot of the fans are going to dig this. I’m not braggadocios about rhyming. It’s about street spirituality. It’s my truth and it’s my struggle on this album just to let cats know what I’m going through and how I see the world. I’m attacking all types of real issues from homeboys being real with each other to love. That’s one thing we really have to look at in each other – love. I’m just tired of the same old thing with all of this hate and hate. We have to start uniting more and talk more about love. Cats are scared to talk about love like it’s a sucker thing and it’s not like that. Just be real with your homeboys because these times that we’re living in, it’s drastic that your team is tight and that everything is together. Don’t be swaying to the side. So many groups, they sway to the side. They go to the left and they go to the right and that has to do with money. That has to do with greed and that has to do with wealth and power. If all of you started in this thing together, if you come up, you have to be strong.
There’s a big importance on unity. I’m not dealing with anybody who slacks on the side. They say they’re revolutionary until the time comes but they just want fame. That’s one very important thing. On Behind the Stained Glass, let me make this clear. It’s all new material and the double album, it might be one that’s going to come out and then the next one’s gonna come out because me and DJ Truth from Good Hands were talking and we want to just keep hittin’ y’all. I got over five albums in stores. I got Behind the Stained Glass and something coming behind that. They’re all issues hitting the heart and the people can feel something from this. A lot of cats try to be braggadocios in their raps and all of that. Let’s talk about something real and let’s talk about issues that deal with today. Today, I want everybody to realize that if you’re coming up and regardless of what religion you’re in, just make sure that y’all stay focused in this time and keep your head up and breathe.
I need all my Christian brothers and sisters, I know y’all are out there. Everything is about the root. Just move it on over to Isreal because you’re almost there. To my brothers who are Muslim, keep it right there to the top and keep it heavy because this album, I’m telling you, this album is about some real, real stuff and we need to unite instead of separate right now.
I’ve been listening to the music a lot. I changed my coast for a minute. I’ve been out here in Cali. Everybody always catches me out here. This is where I’m at and this is where I’m staying. I’m working on some new material. Me and GZA have some shows coming up.
With the whole 50 Cent issue, I was there. That’s not really a touchy subject. I think GZA spoke about what he really wanted to speak about and it’s real. Let’s see what happens. Nothing happens so I guess we’re going to nip that in the bud. I don’t know what everybody else has up their sleeve.
Another thing is I just can’t stop thinking about Behind the Stained Glass. The album is going to probably be out in April. And I got a new clique – G-Ciples. We’re not the D-Ciples because we’re not dealing with the devil and we’re not students of any organization. We’re students of God and that’s what we’re saying right now.
And let me clear this up. You have the Maccabeez and the Sunz of Man. Right now I’m just concentrating on my clique right now because I haven’t seen or heard from anybody. I’ve seen the Clan, but I haven’t heard from no Maccabeez. I got 60 out in Cali. He was with me because we drove out to California together. That was fun. We got to touch up on some old times and that was good. Times are changing and everybody’s doing their own thing, so I’ll go back to the grassroots. I grabbed 60 up and we recorded a couple of songs. One is on my MySpace. That’s going to be on my album. I’ve been getting a lot of good feedback on that. That’s been great.
I told GZA how I felt about 8 Diagrams. I think people wanted something different. They wanted something hard and it has to be undeniable. And it was deniable. It has to grow on you and we’re living in a time where people don’t want to let stuff grow on them. You need to hear the truth.
As far as the industry, I’m glad at where it’s going. The industry is declining and they’re killing most of these artists. We’re living in a spiritual time. All that gangbanging cats are talking about, talk about God. If you’re getting shot and you want to be a gangster and all of that, I’m not with that. The real gangsters are the righteous cats. Don’t let the devil fool you. A gangster is a revolutionary and righteousness is a revolutionary act. It’s an act from the Powers Above. Righteousness is a revolutionary act against the foulness of this nation. Now this nation and everybody around this country, if they was practicing peace, then we wouldn’t have peace. But we don’t have peace because this is not Heaven.
A lot of cats in the ancient times went to war for righteousness like King David. It’s a war right now and we’re getting our crew together. The Four Horseman are still popping. I saw Canibus out here. I didn’t see Ras. Kurupt’s still my brother. I’ve been out here and there’s a lot of stuff that I can’t even put in this journal right now. I want to give you enough though. There’s a lot of stuff.
We all know what’s going on in the Clan. Let me just tell you because we’re all grown men. Behind the Stained Glass is a grown man’s album. And for the kids who want to get out there and do something, get it popping. The G-Ciples is cracking all the way and it’s nothing against the Maccabeez or none of my other cliques. Daddy Rose is coming home soon. I’m just trying to get with my brothers and do something. It’s a new day. I’ve been by myself. I’ve just been meditating and I’ve just been reading a lot. My vision is sharper and my mind is clear. I’m handling my business. I got artists. What’s different now is that I got artists that I’m working with that I’m putting out on my own label, Proverbs Records. We got a nice little budget. I got a system and a team working out here now. That’s really been popping. I’ve been looking at a lot of the situations going on out there. I’ve been talking to Timbo and Holocaust is talking about joining the label. That’s going to be crazy.
And let me say this. This is very important. If you’re Christian, you’re going to want to cross over. You’re already at the door. You might as well go with the vibration. And my Islam brothers, we’re talking about Abraham and we can spread that amongst us. The science is already in there. We can take the foundation and just let the root run through all our things. We’re living in 2008 and it’s no time to be blind. Let’s run up the righteous hill and I’m going to fight this war. Y’all are going to be in this war whether you like it or not. It’s a spiritual war. When it gets physical, that’s just the cleaning up part. That’s the part of the victor. The war is just to clean up stuff because when the spirit comes down, I know cats are going to be calling me from the street. They think I’m bugging now but Priest is not bugging. The man nest to you is not going to tell you that and the judge is not going to tell you that. I am. I’m going to tell you the truth. The government has their plans. It’s a very hard time for brothers and sisters. Get your plan together. I already got my side up.
We’re living in an age where the computers are overtaking the situations and I knew that was going to happen. When we clutch this sword of the Lord and we’re fighting righteousness, I’m telling you, you gotta get yourself together.
I’m not preaching and I don’t mean to be preachy, but that’s what the situation is. If you don’t like it, I don’t care. The cats going along with this industry, y’all are going to fall right along with Babylon. I don’t care. I know what I’m talking about and I’m just glad that the fans that have been supporting are still here. Don’t worry, it’s coming. And I want all my brothers who haven’t gotten in touch with me to get in touch with me. I don’t have no problems with anybody on the outside, but come on back, man. We can reason and I’m a grown man about situations. This is for the inquiring minds about who I’m talking about and everybody knows who I’m talking about. Let’s sit down and talk. Come on back. I got some generals that I’m kicking it with. These are smart men. They’re very intelligent brothers. They’re all over the place and they’re all over the world. My generals know who I’m talking about and I only negotiate with generals. We’re going to sit down and we’re going to talk about the real issues. I’m going to let y’all know more about the G-Ciples. This is a movement. We’re going to see where is the righteous sword to grab in the holy war. When you look at Behind the Stained Glass, you’re going to see that Priest is focused in what he talks about.
To all the cats who have been supportive of Priest, this is the album you want. It’s going to be crazy. Me and DJ Truth are going to be having fun with Good Hands and I got my own label now and it’s going to be on and popping. And let’s get this straight – Priest is not religious. I’m in a spiritual zone and that’s where it’s at. And my love for hip-hop is all in the album Behind the Stained Glass. It’s not going to be the double album like I promised. I promised a double album and I have enough material for a triple album, but we’re going to flood the industry waves and we’re going to get this thing popping.
G-Ciples. Behind the Stained Glass. One love.
REACT TO KILLAH PRIEST'S 38th JOURNAL ENTRY
Journal Entry #37
What up, everyone? The Offering was selling out of everywhere it was in. I want to thank the fans for supporting real hip-hop. It wasn’t in the Best Buy on time. I don’t know if that was because Babygrande had a different date set on it or what exactly happened there. But everywhere it was in, it was selling out and I thank the fans for that. A lot of people got it online too. I want a lot of people to have it in their hands. I took a lot of time with the lyrics on the album and there’s nothing like having the stained glass in your hand. I’m very pleased. I’m very pleased at the response and all of the reviews, I’ve been overwhelmed at and I’ve been hearing a lot of good stuff about the album. I guess my point is that I’m in a good place and I’m going to let this rock for a minute and then we’re going to do The Stained Glass and The Midnight Offering.
It seems that a lot of people really like the album. Thank you. This time, I really got the chance to prove my point. Black August was supposed to be my comeback album because that album was really dope, but the people that were behind it, they didn’t promote it the way I wanted them to. They just wanted to make money. My point was to know that I still had loyal fans and that I could do well if I just had the marketing. A lot of companies were looking at me like, ‘What about your last record?’ I told them, “All you have to do is put it out.” With MySpace and the internet, I can prove my point because a lot of people check on their computers and then a lot of people are talking about my album. Really, I felt like I was back in the Heavy Mental era when everybody was talking about, “Yo, Killah Priest, Killah Priest.” Now my name is in the mouths of a lot of people and that’s what I wanted. I just wanted to build my fanbase like everybody else did and I did it with consistency. I’m going to keep on giving it to them. It feels good because it feels like I proved a point to myself and I let people know that I can sell records. If the people know that the record is out there, I think that will want to make them go out and pick it up. And if they don’t want to, somebody else will. I’m letting them know that I’m a really good artist. I proved my point on this and I hope that some of the labels can see that also.
I have a new piece of jewelry. It’s a stained glass piece. I first debuted it at the Rock the Bells in San Diego. Raekwon was bugging on that. I don’t have to rock blood diamonds. There are more precious elements that are out there that aren’t diamonds. I have a few pieces of stained glass and it looks dope. Everybody was commenting on it and everybody can rock that, I just have to let them know to remember who started that.
I’m in Vegas now with my family. All of my sons are with me and we’re just hanging out. Some of my younger sons have never been out to the West Coast. So we’re out here chilling. I have to call DJ Truth about the sales. He’s been very good and he’s been very understanding. I want Traffic to overflow the stores, but I think that I proved to my peers also that I could sell units. When my peers see me, they’ll see that I’ve been doing it for awhile, that I can still sell records and that I can make great albums. That’s all I need to keep on going as well as the support of the people. If it weren’t for the people and HipHopGame, where would hip-hop be right now? Where would it be without the real supporters like y’all? This is why we can put out the great music that y’all feel is so memorable.
The Chicago show was also deep. The whole Clan went out there and they went out to the afterparties. There were some good things going on there. It was a real good show out there and that was something that I had put together and I’m sorry that I missed that.
You can catch me getting ready for my tour. I’m getting ready to start touring. I’m doing a little bit of spot dates but I’m hitting the road in the end of September and early October. I’ll be doing a whole tour. I have a new booking agent now so we’re doing big things. We’re going to be doing a lot of tours for The Offering and it’s going to start at the end of September and go through October. I’m looking forward to cats coming out and rocking. I’m also talking about a tour now with a couple of other artists. We’re going to put something together because they’re finishing up their albums.
I have some freestyles I’m going to be dropping soon too. Thanks for the support.
Peace! I want to straighten out the album cover to The Offering. A lot of people have seen it and I just want to straighten one thing out. The album cover is stained glass. I had to let everybody see that. Coming back after a couple of years, I had to light up my cover. The sensation of the color of light, nobody’s ever done that before.
When I said that Babygrande wanted to change my cover, they didn’t want to change my cover, but they wanted to redo it so that somebody else would get the credit for it. They wanted their people to come in and do that same cover so their people could get the credit for it. I wanted to keep the credit for that because I had that cover for a couple of years. I always come with something different and I’m always changing. No one ever did that. It’s just something different.
Right now, I’m still out in Cali. I have a show with the GZA out in Chicago. That’s going to be fun. That’s going to be cool. I think Dreddy Kruger is going to be there and a lot of other cats that I haven’t seen in a long time. That’s going to be fun. I’m still working. My next album is damn-near done. I’ve just been working and having fun. I’m chilling with my man Black Moses right now and I’m about to go out to Mexico City to take a few pictures.
I ended up hosting an after-awards joint to the BET Awards. Priest had his three-piece suit on! It was crazy. I was killing them with the way I rolled up. Everybody was like, ‘Oh, that’s Priest!’ I ended up running up on some cats from the Lyricists Lounge. I got there so late and I had to host the after-party over at Club 702. My man Brody hooked that up. They said I couldn’t get into the awards because I came too late. I was about to Debo my way up in there. We had The Offering flyers and we were making a little riot outside of it. I don’t think they caught it on the news but they definitely knew that we were there. If I was in there, I would have walked on stage. So after the awards, there were so many parties going on. I told everybody to come through because I was hired. I was supposed to do it with Rihanna. The person that hired me for the party didn’t even show up. They paid me though! They told me Mary J was supposed to be there and nobody ended up coming. They told me I should perform and I was like, ‘Man, I’m not going to perform!’ Some of the people were kind of pissed because they were told Rihanna and Mary J were coming to sing and I was the only cat that came there. I got my money up. I spoke to Planet Asia and he said he would come through but he didn’t. That’s cool. I don’t know. He was probably at another party.
I’ve been in the studio with my man DJ Wool. Big up to him. Me and my man V.I. are working. You’re going to hear a lot from him. That’s another artist I’m working with. We were just in there making music and shouting like we were in church. It’s spiritual music that you have to be in the spirit to understand. It’s some different stuff.
We went to Shavo’s crib from System of a Down and they wanted me to jump on this joint. RZA had given me a call and said the cats from System of a Down wanted me to knock out a verse for this project they’re doing. Reverend Burke was there and he had me on the floor! We were at Shavo’s house. I did the track and we were in there bugging out all night long. Tech from Sway and Tech came through and I let him hear the album. He was like, ‘What is this?’ We went up on the radio and played some songs. It was heavy up there. He played two of the joints and the phone lines blew up. The phones were blowing up and we were just chilling.
Then we ended up going to Divine Force’s radio station. That was one of the deepest radio stations I’ve ever been to. If all the radio stations were like that, I think we would be in a much better place. He’s into a lot of conscious stuff. The radio station is really, really that deep.
And for everybody that doesn’t know, the album comes out August 21, 2007. I did a little freestyle about it with a little kid’s voice. Check out the MySpace. Wizzy Dee!
What’s up, everybody? I’m in the studio now, finishing up with the mixing and mastering. Everything’s done. You should be hearing the album soon. We got the album cover and everything going out to press. Everything is looking good at this point. Everything is good with that. There were a few changes we wanted to make, but that’s cool now.
Summertime is a good time for The Offering. This album sounds like summer. This album sounds like going back to school and getting back together and all that. Shout out to Amal and Dove, my publicist. I’ve worked with her a few times and she’s good. Shout out to my people holding me down in Cali and Schematics out in Minnesota.
The single should be dropping soon. It’ll probably be “Gun For Gun” featuring Nas and another song I have, “Happy.” It’s a little something different and it’s a little more personal. A lot of people know how I can come lyrical, but “Happy” is very personal to me. I went through a lot this year with my grandma passing and my sister passing. I just want to be “Happy.” The song is very inspirational. The song with Nas is fire. When the streets get that, it’s going to be good.
I want to say Rest In Peace to Stack Bundles. I know he had shouted me out on a couple of joints. He was a cool brother.
It’s always the last part that’s the part that’s the hardest with the album. When you got a sound in your head about how a sound sounded and then you know how it wants to come out and the engineer doesn’t get it, you have to play the music. We were going through that on this one song. So Amal runs downstairs, gets the instrument and plays the music live. Sometimes a studio has a song sounding one way, and then when you get out of the studio, the sound sounds totally different.
I spoke to Ras Kass and finally got the Four Horsemen on the album. Ras and Kurupt went crazy on this shit. That was fun doing.
Shout out to DJ Cocoa Chanelle. That’s a deep sister right there. I really enjoy her because she plays real good music. As a DJ, she’s dope.
Speaking of radio, I should be getting some radio love for The Offering. I’m not pushing for that and I wasn’t even thinking about radio when I was making The Offering, but I got some joints that should get played, like the Nas joint. We’re about real, hard music that will keep your head nodding. There’s a song on the album called “Salvation.” That’s real hard. That song means a lot to me because I’m getting a lot out that was bottled up. My man Arrhythmic blessed me with the beat and the beat was so hard that I had to really go down, deep inside, and decide where I was at with The Offering. There’s different flows and trying differing things on this. “Salvation” is about me vibing on that next level. It’s just some other shit.
Thanks for holding me down and reading these journals. Thanks for holding me down. Look for more Marvin Gaye songs. And after The Offering, I’ll be coming with a double album. I got a lot more music in store for cats that I might just come with a double after The Offering.
Whaddup, everybody? I just finished my tour in Germany. When I got off tour, I had to turn in my album. I did a whole month out in Germany. I don’t even know if I made my deadline for the album. If anything, the album will be coming out in September. But the shows went real well. I was out in Hamburg, Berlin and a bunch of other places. I had my son out there with me so it was fun.
I also had to do a little bit of tweaking with the sequencing and everything. We’re trying to get the single for it, but I had these shows booked already and I couldn’t turn down those shows. I had to get there for the people. It just so happened that the timing was all crazy. I’ve been popping this shit all the time about getting a deal for the album and putting it out, and then when it happens and I have to turn in the album, I’m late.
But I also had to go to my sister’s funeral. When I got back from San Francisco, a lot of personal stuff happened. The Offering is coming though and Kurupt is on the album now. I got the 4 Horsemen on the album now! Kurupt murdered it! When cats hear that, they’re going to be loving it. It wasn’t too hard getting Kurupt. At first, we were both always on the move and we were always doing our shows. I didn’t know Kurupt was on the internet like that. Once we started talking through the internet, we got that shit done.
But it feels so good to have the album done and coming out. I’m at the point where everything I’m doing, I’m throwing down hard on. I’m just so happy to be having another album come out and having another chance to do this. I know what I want to do. I wanted The Offering to be a double album, but hey, you can’t expect everything to go your way. But I’m going to give you a bonus CD. All the stuff is going to come right after that. I got the album and then the album The Holiest of the Holies with Remedy. That’s almost done. I’m just smiling right now.
There’s been a lot of talk lately on foul language in music. I think Master P is taking a mature perspective on it. But you have to be very careful with who you side with. Do it because you want to do it. Don’t do it because somebody told you to. I’m with promoting more of the positive because of all the violence that happens. I think that Master P is one of the dopest dudes in the game. He started a lot of things in the game even though his stuff is not as potent as it was before. But he’s got enough money to be a distributor. I want to holler at Master P. It’s all good.
Right now I’m about to send HipHopGame another Marvin Gaye song. I want to do a whole series with Marvin Gaye songs. Why? Because I love Marvin Gaye’s music! He’s a big influence on me. My parents used to play him. Plus on the last freestyle I dropped, I talked a lot about my sister. She practically raised me and her name lives on in my music. There’s no better way to describe her than by doing it through Marvin Gaye. I felt like Marvin Gaye would have understood what was going on. I was looking at the world through a telescope when I wrote that.
I’m in a good mindstate. I feel like I’m in a good place right now. I feel like I don’t have to talk about everything I’m going to be doing. It’s just going to get done. I’m shooting out to LA to shoot my own video. With Good Hands, it’s crazy right now. We’re about to do it up. Also look out for me and GZA to be doing more stuff. For the record, I’m in VA right now with my man Kount Fif. We’re working on some stuff. I’m also flying out to LA to talk to my boy Ryan about a Killah Priest reality show. It’s about to be Priesthood time. This is my era.
I also want to thank everyone for reading this. The single should be out in the next few weeks to hold everybody down.
It’s a wrap! The deal is done and the album will be out in August. Good Hands Records gave me the deal I wanted, the opportunity I wanted and they’re going to put up the cake behind it. They gave me the nice advance and now I can show the critics and unbelievers what I can really do. I’m going to really clown their ass now. I’m happy and my team is in order. My team is ready to roll. It’s time to get ready for real hip-hop.
At this point, I’m just happy I’m getting The Offering out. It’s going to be available in stores and all over the place. It’s going to be in Europe. You’re going to get to see Priest do his thing again. You’re going to get more than my freestyles that are just one take in the studio. Now I’m going to be bringing cats the pain. It’s going to be straight-up hip-hop, completely raw. Everything I drop now is going to be dope.
Getting this deal had its ups and its down. To me, there was just no respect from other labels. This thing we do is called “rap.” A lot of these companies and a lot of these dudes don’t have respect for the artists anymore. It’s sad. They think they can just disrespect and run around dudes because of how the game is structured. I stood on my word and now I get the chance to put out my album strictly by me. This is something I orchestrated and it’s going to have all the elements on there. Hopefully we fly. There’s all the old fans out there and all the new fans I’ve gained doing shows. For them, hopefully this is worth the wait.
I’m going to be doing a lot of promo now and a lot of interviews. I’m going to be all over the place. After The Offering, I have another one ready to go. I’m four albums deep right now. I have a side project I’m working on like my album with Remedy and Black Market 2. I just talked to Tragedy. These are not Killah Priest albums, they’re Killah Priest projects. Even though I would love to give everybody all these albums at once, I can’t do that. The deal for The Offering is official now and I’m just happy right now. I just have to stick to my word right now about putting real hip-hop and real knowledge back into the game.
I’ll be taking it easy tonight. I have a couple of shows out here tonight. I’m in the Bay Area. I’m going to get on the phone and call up a couple of my comrades. I’m going to probably kick it with GZA later on and we can toast on this. I’m not going to lie, I’m just happy. I’m going to call up my guy who did the album cover. It’s been done for three years! I’m just happy. What can I say but “bring the pain”? My Priesthood team is going to release joints here and there. We’re going to flood up HipHopGame and flood the streets. Big ups to Raw Dawgs in the Bronx. We’re going to do another mixtape too because I’m tired of sitting on songs.
Get ready. I’m ready for whatever. I’m getting everything together and I’m ready to hit the studio and record. We’re about to come through your neighborhood in helicopters.
I just want everybody to pray for my sister. My older sister is very, very sick. I’m putting this out there because I love her and she’s dear close to me. I love her and I’m not there right now, but I’ll be there in a second. I just want to send all my energy to her because she’s been on my mind since I heard she was in the hospital and that she wasn’t doing very well. Every time when you’re elevating, there’s always something that happens. When I put out Heavy Mental, my nephew got killed, and that’s my sister’s son. The doctors are saying she’s on her last stage, but I don’t believe them. They’re just doing medical practice. We have to look to the Most High. I guess sometimes sickness can humble a person when it hits your family, your real family.
Last week I got into some label politics. I’m still heated. After RZA put me onto Babygrande, I got a call from Cilvaringz telling me more. There’s this dude up there named Jesse trying to change my album cover. He told me, “We got this dude named Nubian.” Big ups to Nubian, but my man already laced it. I’m starting the Stained-Glass Movement. A lot of cats in my camp have already seen the cover. It’s crazy.
Back to the point, these dudes tried to change my album cover. They told me they “saw where I was going” and could touch it up. It’s already hot. I’m doing shows with the GZA and these dudes are calling me, telling me they want to change my album cover. I felt disrespected. I love the album and I love the way it sounds.
I had a meeting with Nas and they were really feeling it. It’s really coming out. This summer I’m going to have to go back in the studio.
Those dudes at Babygrande, they don’t have love for this shit. They told me, “Priest, look, the game is changing.” Man, change the game! I’m making enough money anyway and I don’t deal with middle men. Everybody knows Priest stays doing shows. I got more respect in the hip-hop world than those niggas can ever get.
I don’t have to rush to the first deal. I have the ultimate plan. Cats who shout at me on the MySpace from the last journal, big up. I was glad to read Rah Digga’s journal. She’s stepping out. We’re not going for this no more. It’s time to change the game up.
You have these independent labels acting like majors. It’s independent, stupid-ass. My man did his thing with the independent shit there and I’m not dissing artists on Babygrande. It’s just the heads. It’s too bad I couldn’t be labelmates with some of those artists because you have these dudes coming up with slippers on telling me they want to put out my album “real fast.” Real fast? You’re disrespecting a revolutionary lyricist saying that. Come on, man, where’s the love at? The bottom line is they’re clowns.
A lot of people just don’t respect the music. I’ve put out mixtapes that have sold a lot and they’re talking about my sales history for past albums. I’m not begging anyone for a deal and I will not be disrespected by anyone. I can’t believe they had the audacity to talk to me like that. I could never associate myself with that. Big ups to Charley.
Have you seen 300 yet? See 300 and come back to me. We’re riding 300 strong. I’m only rolling with the cats who are really, really ready to roll. I’m 120% ready and I’m going back in the studio. These guys got me mad. I’m going to go back in the studio and I’m going to do 100 more songs.
Whoever says I should stop writing journals because I have no release date, those are the weak-hearted guys. Those are the dudes who will stand for nothing. Those are the dudes who are engulfed by the radio. Stand up and be a man. I know what I’m doing. It’s maneuvers. I’ve been all over the planet stacking up on my shows, making maneuvers. I’ll embarrass your favorite rapper.
Big ups to the West Coast. I have armies everywhere and I know The Offering is going to drop. I could never lose my anticipation. Your favorite rapper’s brain just exploded.
It’s just that time. It’s really, really serious right now. I’m focused right now because I have a couple things up my sleeve that are going to be good. How many rappers out there can drop as many freestyles as I did that sound way better than cats’ albums? And I’m doing all of those in one take. Don’t get it twisted. Everyone who rated it 4 ½ and 5, those were in one take. I’m getting my business tighter and I have people in my corner who believe in my work. You can’t stop me. None of that shit is going to stop me. I’m not going to stop. Big ups to Canibus too. I had a nice conversation with him. I can’t believe there are still dudes out there who don’t believe. They’re going to catch it though.
Another thing is, forget all the fly shit. We have a lot of spiritual problems out there where cats get caught up because their heart is not strong enough. You have to build yourself up internally first. This is mental warfare. You have to have armor inside to hold that fort down because I’m going to do it. I’m doing it. This is real right now. I’m speaking for the future and that’s even stronger right now and for all the ones coming up. I’m tired of these old sellouts and these dudes who don’t know what they’re doing. Everything is real. We’re at the closing of the hour and shit is getting real. It’s getting more and more real and I’m getting strong. We have to be strong and we can’t devour the ones who are standing strong for something.
The silly and the fools, God bless them, but they’re not riding. If you’re trying to roll for dolo and all you’re doing is biting and all you have is lying and deceit in your heart, we’re going to crush you anyway so keep doing it. They’re going to rise and fall just like Rome. It’s going to be just like the coming of the Dark Ages. It’s Constantine the Great. Cats who don’t respect that are effeminate. They don’t understand that warlike attitude. They need a manicure and pedicure.
What’s up, everybody? I’m glad a lot of people enjoyed the last entry. I’ll be out in Canada doing some shows. I just got back from Vegas from the All-Star Game and Magic. It was great. The parties were packed and there were mad girls. I had fun. There’s something about Vegas. I also like the desert life.
Let me address something. I want to put this out to all the fans waiting for The Offering. The Offering is not going to come out on Babygrande. We were trying to work out some details, but they don’t want to give me the deal I feel I deserve. Those guys over there weren’t really looking out. They said the album was hot, but they don’t want to give me the deal it’s worth. They tried to lowball me and I can’t fuck with a label like that. Labels like that, I have to send my goons up there to go talk to them.
It’s frustrating when these dudes know the album is hot but they want to give you crumbs. Their excuse is sales, but look who they put out. Just go over there if you have nothing popping. You’ll probably get $7,000 and if you’re established, you’ll probably get $5 g’s. I just don’t understand it.
They gave my man Dreddy a nice deal for Wu-Tang Meets Indie and that was his first project. They gave him more respect than me. The album is going to be coming out in May. Babygrande wanted to rush me and put my album out March 27. They put it out there like it was coming out. I love the anticipation, but I don’t want anybody fucking my shit up. Then Babygrande came back and said they couldn’t do it because “things were funny now.” I can’t really mess with them. I’m from the streets first. I can’t have none of these fake labelheads coming up to me, especially them, and tell me anything. We parted ways and I can’t mess with them. I’m not giving them the project.
I don’t do child’s play. The album will come out. Trust me.
I’m working with my man Kenyatta today where Q-Tip used to work at Mindswerve Studios. You know Priest is the hardest working man in showbusiness.
I’m excited about going to Canada. It’s beautiful up there. I like it because they party like us. There’s beautiful women and nice scenery. They like hip-hop out there so it’s all good.
I’m glad the track I did with Gumz is getting a good response. I met him on MySpace. He also did some work with Hell Razah before. I heard his stuff and it was cool. I don’t even have the finished version yet. Big ups to Gumz and to the Molemen for the beat. I never rocked a Molemen beat before. Just know that I have to like your shit before I jump on it.
I got two mixtapes I’m working on now. I’m working on a joint for Canibus too.
I was also balling with Flavor Flav. That was crazy. The RZA came out too. Me, RZA and Flavor Flav were doing it up big in LA. We were having some fun out there. Flavor Flav has the key to the city out there, literally. Homeboy has a free pass everywhere. Flavor Flav is the man right now. We were walking through the mall and everybody was going crazy over that dude. And you know I’ve been trying to cut back on my drinking, but we did a little sipping. It got crazy when RZA got there. Eddie Griffin was there too and we were bugging out. That dude is really a funny dude. Eddie Griffin was cracking jokes on these dudes. He’s a real comedian. He was busting on this dude. We were balling out. We were Grey Goosing it up.
Flav is a wild dude but he’s way down to earth. He’s just doing his thing right now. And for me to see that is inspiration. Son was in the game for a long time and look how he’s popping off now.
RZA called me to go up in the studio and you can only guess what that’s for.
The Offering is dropping in May. Holler at your boy. It’s coming out. 100.
What’s up, everybody? Another day, another journal. Right now, I’m back in LA. I just left Arizona. I was out there with my boys, The Vendetta Kings. They’re hot. I’m about to sign them up and bring them through my plugs. It’s about starting an enterprise. I liked what they were kicking. They were kicking some real spiritual things. That was a very good start out there. I like the weather in Arizona too. That was very nice even though it was hailing out there when I first got out there. I was bugging the fuck out.
I got some good tracks done out there. Right now, I’m about 400 songs deep.
Hell Razah’s album, The Renaissance Child, will be out in a couple of days. I’m on that. You know that’s fam right there. He’s preparing himself for the release. I haven’t seen him since we were in the studio working on the album, but it’s finally coming out. It’ll be out on February 20. It’s dope. I got two songs on there but we did way more than that. It’s real spiritual on it and it’s got a lot of spiritual meaning and value to it. It uplifts your mind. It’s really his first real album so I’m really excited to see how everything goes with that. He’s real excited about that too. If you want to hear some shit that uplifts your mind, go cop that album.
I was talking to Mike Brinkley at Ill Will about some tours coming up. Things are looking good. I’m working on stacking my cake up. Your favorite MC’s favorite MC can’t be broke on the corner.
I’ll also be out in Vegas for All-Star Weekend. I heard a lot of good stuff and I’m also getting back into my books and my movies heavy right now because that’s where it all lies at. I just kept building a lot and I’ve been dealing with that cosmic energy and letting that shit flow.
The last movie I saw was Apocalypto. That movie took me right in there. The way Mel Gibson shot the movie, it takes you right in there. It shows you the sacrifices of the Aztecs and the Mayans and it was just deep. It’s real heavy dealing with the spiritual and seeing the pyramids unfold and it was real dope. They covered a lot of deep shit. I’m not going to give it away. I would advise everybody to get the DVD if you can’t see it in theaters.
I also saw Blood Diamond. It’s deep on what the fuck they’re doing, but they made it with Leo DiCaprio…They made him into the Superman of blood diamonds.
You know I’ve been out in LA a lot. I wouldn’t mind living out here. It’s already my second home. I got my sister out here and I got friends out here. I got a friend, Crystal Graves, who’s a poet out here. But I got my seeds back in NY so I always have to out and chill, but the love they show me out here is real and they appreciate hip-hop. It’s not all saturated and not everybody is going crazy over the same shit like out in NY. I have to step out of that madness. Nobody in NY can get along and what’s killing me is everybody thinks they’re making the real shit, but they’re really scared of real lyricism.
Speaking of that, I was just out here with Canibus and we had a long conversation with GZA. I also got to chill with Flavor Flav and we went to a house party with GZA. We went to the Sky Bar and then we went to this house party. Anyway, Canibus gave me the track he wants me on. He’s still spitting. I don’t know what to call him. He’s a deity when it comes to spitting. He’s incredible. He already gave me the track. You know how ‘Bis goes in. He just blacks out. Him and Ras are crazy. I’m looking for Kurupt so we can do this Horsemen shit.
You’re going to get the Horsemen album. Everybody’s running around and you need the Horsemen to bring the Apocalypse. Nas said hip-hop is dead and you’re going to need us to bring the Apocalypse.
I’m finally starting to see some light. The anticipation for The Offering is crazy. Everywhere I go, everybody is saying they heard about the album and the anticipation is very beautiful. I’m very happy that it’s finally going to come out. We have situations open that are very interesting, with release dates. Right now, I’m not going to put it off any longer. I got release dates and I’m excited and I’m glad that it’s finally coming out. This isn’t the end though. I got other shit. I don’t think I took that long, but it definitely took long. When cats see the album coming, it’s going to be nice. I’m also out here doing shows and everything and that makes me feel good.
Big ups to Hussein and Mel for holding me down on the shows. I got a show coming out in Santa Cruz. I’m also working on this organization with this young lady who’s always traveling out to Africa and is about upliftment. We’re going to start something for the youth. We’re going to try to make something real big with that too. That’s in my plans too.
Don’t support that bullshit and whoever supports that bullshit, it’s on y’all. I know what I’m coming with. To all those haters out there, you’re all making me laugh. You don’t even know my history. It’s sad that dudes don’t respect cats who really do this shit from the heart.
I’m feeling humble and doing these shows show me how much people want the music and how much they respect it. That’s wonderful. Inspiration, travel and respect to yourself is key. I always try to tell the younger brothers coming up and the older brothers who never made it, who are still young, I tell them to preserve themselves until they come out. I’ll be rhyming until the clock stops. I’m not going to give it up. I want everybody reading this to know to not ever give up. Don’t ever give up on what you want to do because everybody has a chance.
What’s up, everyone? I’m out in Cali again. I just left San Francisco. I had a show out there. I’m doing a little tour with the GZA. I’m only out here for five days.
I know rumors are going around on the internet that The Offering is coming out on March 27. All I can tell you is that The Offering is coming out this year. Right now I’m in talks with a few places. It’s about the best offer and I can’t really say where it’s going right now. I know you’re tired of hearing that, but I’m real close to signing this deal. The process is moving and I’m very happy with the way the support has been from the fans and the way everything’s been going. I can’t really complain.
I would like to complain because I wanted The Offering to come in ’06, but it’s definitely going to come out in ’07 along with some other stuff. The mixtape is on hold for now though. I held back on that because I think people want the album. I’ve been working hard and I want to give people the album. You’ll be getting a lot of stuff though on the mixtapes and on HipHopGame. It seems like this should be a big year for Priest. This should also be a big year for real hip-hop. I’m excited about the way everything is sounding so far. I’m loving where I’m at right now and how I’m feeling. I’m feeling great and I’m feeling like I’m going to get the best deal possible.
The Offering is going to be a straight-up Killah Priest album. It came out exactly how I wanted it to sound. And it’s most definitely coming out this year. It’s going to be the biggest shit coming out. It might not be on the biggest label, but it’s going to be the biggest and the hardest fucking album out this year.
What up, what up! I’m back. The Nas album is crazy. If everybody loves that, they’re going to love The Offering. If hip-hop is dead, then The Offering is going to be the autopsy.
But Nas’ album was incredible. He had some stuff on there. Nas has always been a great lyricist. I think he really had to inspire himself because there’s not too much inspiring music out there. I like the first track where it’s an angry Nas and he’s mad at the system. That’s when his creativity level goes up.
The single “Hip-Hop Is Dead” is cool, but the beat was used before. Lyric-for-lyric, he’s saying a lot of shit. It was definitely good, but it wasn’t his best work though. I think the statement was stronger than the song, but the album overall is one of the best albums to come out lately. Hip-hop is definitely in a coma. I’m trying to give it a bypass and check the plasma screen.
Royce is hot. I can see why Nas would want to sign him. Royce has always been dope. Signing me was definitely something we always kicked it about and it would be a great move, but everything’s not established yet. When they get everything up and running, I’m there. If the offer is there, I’m there.
I’d do well with Nas. I heard him and Cormega got back together. I was away in Vegas at that time. That was a good look. I think if he surrounds himself around the right people, he can successfully put artists out. There are a lot of cats who are not very talented at the rap and a lot of dudes are dumbing down their ears. This is not about geek music. This is real. A lot of people are dumbing down their ears and they want to hear so much superficial shit like gun-clapping. That’s not what rap is about. Rap is about skills. I think if Nas surrounded himself around the right people, he would do well.
I feel blessed to be around the people fans consider the greats. A lot of the greats look up to me. They all show me the respect. It doesn’t do anything to me when people are out there hating.
Vegas was very good. I went out there to chill. I stayed out there ‘til New Year’s to see how it would happen out there. I built with Canibus out there. I hadn’t seen him in a minute. Everything was cool. I went out there and had a good time. I was chilling and I tried not to gamble out there. I saw the ball drop out there. They got a New York out there. I’ve just been chilling. I’ve been doing a lot of traveling lately which is great for me. Whenever I go places like Cali it opens my mind up. Sometimes I feel like I have to get in higher zones.
Christmas was cool. I don’t really celebrate the Christmas thing. That’s for the kids. They enjoy that. I do enjoy the love and spirit of Christmas. I wish that we as a people would feel that way all of the time. You won’t catch me doing the holiday thing but you won’t catch me like Scrooge neither.
My New Year’s resolutions are to stay consistent, to drop good music and to get this album out. It’ll probably be out in March or April and I have another one coming after that. I have a whole bunch of stuff that’s going to come.
I’ve been working on the freestyles. I have another one coming. I might not even drop the Prelude Part 2. I think somebody had leaked out a couple of the freestyles I did. I’m not sure about that yet. I’ve just been working. I’ve been working and I’ve been doing freestyles because I don’t have to think too hard at the moment. I can just put those out there. I see I’ve been getting some mixed messages on them. Sometimes those freestyles are some real shit where you’re getting stuff off your chest. That’s some real shit right there.
The album is definitely coming this year. That’s a promise. That’s a good thing. I look forward to building with everybody. Hell Razah’s The Renaissance is dropping. Pick up the Nas album and Ras Kass’ music. Buy GZA’s music. Support good hip-hop and keep it live.
What’s up, everybody? It’s been a minute, I know. I’ve been out here working. I’m just shocked at so many of these labels. A lot of these people who claim that they like real hip-hop, they have to support real hip-hop. These labels don’t want to fuck with the real. That’s why I’m going the independent route with The Offering.
This girl at Def Jam heard that album and she wanted me to get up with Jay-Z. But you know how that goes. She wanted Jay-Z to hear my album, but I never heard back. I haven’t heard nothing back from her. If you’re reading this, let me know what’s up Mrs. Michelle. The funny part is she heard the album and was like, “He’s kind of nice. Who is this cat?” My man was playing the album to her and she just got crazy open. I’m supposed to meet up with Jay-Z but I’m not holding my breath.
The dude getting shot in Queens by the police is bullshit. This police brutality has to come to a cease or we’re going to have to do something about it. My whole thing is we have to police our own selves. There’s been a problem with the police. I’m glad this story went major. This has been happening all over the world. Police shoot first and ask questions last. We have to stand up as a nation and not put up with this bullshit. We can’t be letting those cops just do anything. That goes with unity and the people straight up. Nothing is going to happen if we don’t have unity.
The first step to getting that unity is self-awareness. We have to examine ourselves. We have to come in to who we are and become our own government. We have to know who we are. It all exists within our self. That’s the first situation. We also have to check ourselves. I’m not talking about the brother who got shot, but we have to be more wise on how we move and be more strategic. I have this song called “Cryin’ Frontier” that talks about stuff like that. I don’t know if it’s going to make the album or not, but it’s a good song. It’s talking about how we have to move more strategically and how we don’t have anymore leaders. We have to get ourselves focused and stand up for ourselves. We have to stand up. There are no more Malcolm X’s. The little ones in the projects, it’s our duty to train them. They’re going to jail. We have to train them and tell them to focus on the right things and situations.
And for everyone saying that it’s not a race issue, of course it was a race issue. It was ignorance. I think what’s more stupid is that you had black cops in there too shooting. It was all of that. The race issue is now about being young and black. Sometimes the old folks don’t like the young folks. If you’re an officer, sometimes you have that chip in your head where you think like them. If you’re white and you’re not an officer, you’re a part of us. We’re all a part of the renegade team. They have everybody targeted. And that’s not to take the focus off black people because that’s where it started at. We’ve been telling them for years that we have to move more strategic and know how to move within ourselves because they know how to move. They’re training. We have to be training and get our minds right. I’m not going to reveal too much in this journal. It has more to do with things besides race. It has more to do with things than we think about.
I think it’s bullshit that Kramer got more play in the media than this shooting. He’s an inferior, scared-ass motherfucker. He’s simpleminded. He’s a millionaire for being a comedian. That’s what’s wrong with this world we live in. Ignorance is promoted. Doctors are downplayed in this society. This is a modern-day Babylonia. Nothing’s changed. Simplicity is pushed to a high level. If you want to live, you have to roll with it. A lot of these people are fake-ass sellouts behind closed doors. They’re talking all that revolutionary shit but they’re not real about it. I know who you are. You have to come out the closet like R.Kelly said.
Jesse Jackson said we should stop using the word “nigga.” That’s stupid. He’s down with them too. How long has he been in politics? Ain’t shit change yet! A lot of politicians are talking about “don’t use the n-word.” The power is out of that word. The word is used so much. Niggas don’t even know their true nationality. I don’t think using that word makes any difference. If you’re my nigga, you’re my nigga. So what? I have to keep it real. These political leaders kill me. Jesse Jackson is sitting up there saying, “Don’t use the n-word.” That’s because he’s up there with them. If anything, try to figure out and tell us what happened with Martin Luther King Jr. Tell us the truth. I don’t care who gets mad at that. There are a lot of political secrets and things that are going to go down if they open their eyes and ears. This is Priest. I’m talking this shit. It’s real.
I don’t give a fuck who says the word “nigga.” White people can’t really use that word, but I don’t give a fuck about it. It doesn’t really bother me when white people say it. It’s like a slang now. A lot of people are emotional about it. I don’t give a fuck who uses that word. Just don’t use it out of context. It’s how you use it. “That’s my nigga right there.” That’s whatever. I don’t care about it no more. I never used to say that word, but I started saying that word as a form of rebellion. I feel you could make an acronym out of that. You know me, I make acronyms out of anything.
And I didn’t buy Kramer’s apology. I don’t buy no apologies. I don’t accept apologies. If you want to apologize, do something for the hood. Fuck all of that. All those apologies don’t mean nothing. You got cats out here starving. I was just talking with this African sister and she was telling me how they treat the brothers over there in the mining industry. I’m not even rocking ice anymore. All my jewelry is going to be on my shelf. Everybody should stop rocking that shit for a minute. All that shining is bullshit. Niggas are dying over that. I used to rock a lot of diamonds in the ‘90’s. I wore a lot of jewelry. The whole Clan knows. I gave all that stuff to my moms and I don’t rock that no more. When I saw what’s happening with it, I said, “I can’t rock it anymore.”
I can’t speak on what my Wu brothers will do, but they should stop rocking ice. I’m not doing it though. Rae and them are iced out. There ain’t nothing wrong with flossing, but there is with a certain type of jewelry. Ghost wears a lot of gold. Fuck all of those diamonds. Motherfuckers can’t afford that shit and people are getting killed for it and we’re over here doing nothing. It looks beautiful though. It looks good, but they’re going through hell over there.
When kids in Africa and Puerto Rico were young, from the stories I’ve heard, they used to play with jewelry. I’ll stick to that. The value of work is everything.
The mixtape, Prelude to the Offering 2, is done. I’m going to continue putting out product and music. I’m going to become like Katrina. I’m going to flood all the hoods and I’m not going to stop. This is the Lord’s work I have to do. I feel I have a higher cause to do this. I’m going to have all kinds of demons coming at me and I’m prepared to battle. It’s the Byzantine King Supreme. I’m going to have all types of negatives but I’m ready for that. I’m riding for the truth and I have my sword drawn. The truth will set you free. I’m not mixing or diluting my shit. I’m not watering nothing down. You can’t mess with this. I’m a grown man and I know where I stand. I’m riding for the truth. Anybody else riding for the truth, come on. Anybody else not riding for the truth, you better get out of the way. Even if you think you’re going to stop me, I’m riding with power. There’s going to be thousands and millions…144,000 getting shot. Y’all do the math. The smart ones know what I’m talking about. And that’s men and women. I’ve been meeting a lot of revolutionary sisters ready to roll for the truth. That’s good because they play a part in this too.
I don’t have anything else to say unless it’s intelligent and a movement. Don’t come to me and talk to me about something stupid about some rapper. If you come up to me, tell me about something that will change my life or about how to change our living environment and mentality. I’m talking about everybody. This is about changing the mentality because if everyone can learn how to respect everybody else, that will make a great change on the way we’re living. That’s real talk.
Peace and harmony. I’m headed back to the tombs right now to finish up some of my scribes. Y’all will hear from me in a minute. For all you haters out there, y’all are going against God’s work. You make me laugh.
What’s up, everybody? My phone is a little messed up. I have to get it fixed or something. Maybe I’ll get a new phone.
We’re throwing an Ol’ Dirty party tonight in his remembrance. Me and 12 O’Clock did it. I think everybody is going to come through and represent for him. His family feels there’s not enough support so we have to go through and represent for him tonight. We put this whole shit together with Matt Levine.
ODB is underappreciated in hip-hop to an extent. A lot of people don’t show the dedication to him like they did for Biggie and ‘Pac. 12 O’Clock was saying how the rest of the Clan needs to put that out there more. He’s always going to be missed and I know his family is real supportive.
I’m getting ready to release some more joints. I’m going to send them to HipHopGame first. I’ve been seeing all the new shit. I heard the Jay-Z and Nas joint. It wasn’t that crazy, but it was good. It was cool. What’s more amazing is that they both got on there and they did their thing. I was just looking for something else. You got Jay-Z and Nas on a track, forget about it. Nas killed it but Jay-Z didn’t sound all the way in there. That’s my opinion. I didn’t hate it either. Just to see them two get on a track together is crazy. I think Big Daddy Kane and Rakim should have done that.
I know a lot of the fans are disappointed I don’t have a deal yet. Just keep rolling with me and support real shit. It bugs me out. These labels are bugged the fuck out now. I want to put this out there: Def Jam, Jay-Z, I’m looking to come over there.
And for everyone wondering about True Master, everything’s cool. I just saw him and he was chilling. He was in the studio with me, Kane, RZA and GZA. I don’t know about him getting slapped at the VH1 Hip-Hop Honors but I heard Poppa Wu was flipping out on the bouncers. That’s nothing new. Poppa Wu always put it down.
For everyone wondering why I shout out 730, it’s because he’s been supporting the real shit and there’s a lot of people not supporting. Him and HipHopGame gave me the chance to get my journal out there and they play my songs. It’s all good.
I’m heading out to Cali on the 17th. I’ll be knocking out some shows out there. Make sure you come out.
I know Jay’s album is out there but I haven’t even listened to it yet. I’m focusing on my shit right now.
I think it’s dope that Ghost is dropping a new album. That’s Ghostface! I think Jay is just trying to get everybody out there and flood the market. Ghost always delivers most of the time.
I have to get back to this cooking right now. I’m making some Chinese food right now, chopping it up. I can put it down in the kitchen. Chinese food, lasagna, all that good shit. I’ll let you know more about that in the next journal. The next journal will be a lot better. I just got this party on my mind right now.

Journal Entry #25
What’s up, everybody? I was just in the studio with GZA, RZA, Big Daddy Kane and True Master. That was crazy. We were just bugging out. It was crazy to be in the room with Kane. He laid down his track real quick. Me and Big Daddy Kane were talking about collaborating. To be in the studio with him, GZA and RZA, that was a crazy night. I wanted to go get me a camera.
And Kane still has it. Kane killed his verse. He said some wild shit. Kane’s still got it. GZA’s working on his project. We’ve all been working on our stuff.
I see I got 4 ½ stars for my “The Format” freestyle. That was just something that I had to get off of my chest and to let everyone know that I still put it down. That was something that came from the heart. I already loved that beat from Primo and I loved the song that AZ did to it. I’m hoping AZ hears it and we can do a remix to it. I’ve been getting a lot of good responses on that. It’s crazy right now. That’s peace that people are loving it. It’s time to come back to the real and the art of emceeing. I’m looking around at who’s albums are dropping and I’m really seeing that change coming in hip-hop. I’m going to definitely contribute what I have to contribute to it. It’s falling right into that zone where I like it to be. Jay’s coming out and he’s spitting. Nas is coming out and he’s spitting. Immortal Technique is coming out and I’m coming out. When I come out it’s going to be some shit. The response that I’m getting on this freestyle is crazy. I got a lot more from where that’s coming from and I really appreciate the feedback on tracks like “The Format” and “The Covenant.” It’s just about sitting down and making those songs right. I definitely enjoy the feedback on HipHopGame and on my MySpace.
I’m not sure right now when the Prelude to the Offering 2 is going to come out. It depends on how fast the deal comes for The Offering. The work is done for it and I got so many songs already released that cats can make their own album and call it what they want. There is so much stuff from my mixtapes to stuff I just dropped on HipHopGame.
I haven’t heard the Game album but I heard it’s hot. I’m surprised it got leaked online. I think that’s mad old school to leak his album. I think he’s just doing it the way cats used to do it when you really wanted to hear some hot shit. He’s been taking his jabs at 50 and I’ve been taking my jabs…I’m just sick and tired of being sick and tired. Whatever happens from here on out, I’m just going to make good music, regardless of what anyone does. I just want to make good, authentic hip-hop.
It was really, really good to be around those legends. From what they were saying, it just shows me that I’m on my A-game. I just need to push the numbers up a little more because when cats hear me, they’ll tune in. HipHopGame has done a lot for me because I’ve gotten a lot of new fans from here.
I’m trying to get down to Atlanta to knock out some stuff down there and I got a show on the 17th out in LA. I want everybody in the West Coast region to come through. For this whole week I’ll just be sorting things out.
good? I'm back from hiatus. Sorry for the delay, but I've got a lot of
good things in store. I've been chilling out this whole week making moves.
I saw Jim Jones the other day at the spot. We were just kicking it. I'm
still waiting to hear back from Ras Kass to hear about what really happened
with that fight.
checking on HipHopGame and checking out the feedback to my new tracks.
I'm going to keep sending in tracks on a consistent basis. Everyone needs
some KP in their life.
I think Nas'
new music is crazy. What I don't understand is why Jay signs Nas and then
he drops an album out of nowhere. I think it's crazy. They've always been
around each other, but I just don't understand that. Plus "Hip-Hop
Is Dead" is the same sample as "Thief's Theme," but he's
definitely coming through on that shit, lyrics-wise.
The big question
on everyone's mind seems to be if Nas can make something better than Illmatic.
I wouldn't put anything past the brother. He's got a great mind. It's
really up to the individual on what you do. I feel that The Offering is
way better than Heavy Mental. I really feel like I'm in my prime now.
Heavy Mental was my beginning. Right after Heavy Mental, I faced so much
crazy shit with the labels that I thought it was a conspiracy. I just
left the label after View from Masada and went independent. I thought
Black August was going to be my comeback but that got taken apart. The
Offering is not changing anymore. I'm not changing it anymore. It is what
it is. If
anything, I overdid Heavy Mental.
And for anyone
wondering if I'm going at G-Unit on the new freestyle, to be honest with
you, I'm just tired of the way shit is going on this hip-hop thing. I
met those brothers a couple of times. It's where hip-hop is right now.
That was something I just threw up in there that was real special for
real cats who want hardcore lyrics. It wasn't just for Wu fans but for
fans craving for something more than what's happening now. You still got
the cats like me, Nas, AZ, Cormega and Tragedy Khadafi. There are a lot
of dudes putting it down.
wondering, there is eventually going to be another Black Market Militia
album. I'm just concentrating on this right now because I don't think
everybody is focused on it right now. Tragedy also has something that
he's doing. I haven't spoken to him in a long time.
out for Prelude to the Offering II with J-Ronin. I have to get up with
Phenom. I don't know what Phenom and Remedy are doing at the studio but
J-Ronin was ready to work so we're knocking out some joints. I'm working
on some new material until I get ready to drop. Hopefully in the next
journal I'll be able to tell you what label The Offering is coming out
I won the
case against the people trying to take KillahPriest.com from me. I got
was crazy! The thing about Halloween is it's not even scary no more. It's
sexy. I saw more ass and titties yesterday than any day of my life. It's
unheard of. I was bugging. I went to Flava Flav's party. Like every guy
there I was looking for Deelishis just to pay homage. I had a good time
I also really
have to thank myself for not rushing and putting out The Offering yet.
I put out enough little songs that everyone waiting for The Offering can
put their own version together. I was supposed to go on tour with RZA
but they fronted and cancelled the show. I think he's still shooting his
I want everybody
to try to do some research on the Law of Attraction. That's about always
staying positive. I want everybody to deal with positive thinking. Anything
you put out in this universe comes back to you so I want everybody to
know that if they put out positive vibes, it will all come back to you.
It's really real. I'm staying in a positive mindstate and a real mindstate.
Doors are opening up because I'm staying in a positive and real mindstate.
I also can't wait until everybody sees this album cover. HipHopGame is
going to get it first. I love everybody and everybody, stay up.

Journal Entry #23
up, everybody? I've been chilling and finishing up the sequencing and
the artwork to The Offering. I'm also working on a new mixtape. I'm working
on some things for The Offering. There's a major label that is supposedly
trying to set up a meeting with me. The next move right now is to develop
this movement and develop my family. Right now it's all about the seeds.
I recommend traveling. I've been doing a lot of traveling. I enjoy simple
things like checking out the arts and seeing old ruins and sites. I use
trips like that to study and have fun.
trying to eat healthy. I'm trying to keep my system away from too much
sugar. That's the No. 1 drug. I was watching a documentary and there's
four different types of sugars in some things. We have to keep our dietary
frame in shape if we want to exist into the next millennium. We're not
going to do that if we keep eating all this robot food. It's turning us
I know I
have an active imagination. Nobody really seems to be trying. The word
"hot" is so corny now. Everything's "hot." We need
DJ's to support the movement. I think everybody's coming back down. You
can keep it simple and witty. There is no more wittiness involved in it.
There's a lack of originality but you already knew that.
Family Guy is killing it. I love cartoons. At least they're telling the
situation is something I heard about but I haven't spoken to Tragedy yet.
We don't need stuff like that. I need to hear more before I talk about
it. I know both of those dudes are real. It's crazy how Trag and Ras Kass
are having these situations.
I don't get with that foolishness. I don't put myself in those situations.
I don't know exactly what happened with my brothers, but everybody knows
I'm a peaceful brother. I don't try to start no beef but if it comes my
way, I just try to resolve it as quick as possible. I don't have time
to be fighting with people.
I was talking to 'Pac before he passed away. Those were my wild days when
I was in the club. We were kicking it with 'Pac and he was like, You're
wild. We were fighting people if they bumped us. A lot of people I was
around with were goons. I did my thing back then. I'm more respected in
the clubs now. I got my G-pass. I can probably get in before Jay. 'Pac
was telling us how we were wild and he started telling me about "B.I.B.L.E."
I never told anybody this story. He called it "The Liquid Swords
that I get with I always school. My man just came back from jail and we
talked about life. I do what the Most High gives me to do, and that's
building. Rapping is all good, but at the end of the day, it's not all
about rapping. It's about talking about what I'm really about. I'm really
about the Most High and putting forth His will because we all have some
part of us that's spiritual. It's like a stove that's on. The gas is the
spirit but you just have to turn it on and that way you can cook. Once
you cook, you get that food. That's that food for thought.
everybody? I'm in Orlando. Orlando is cool. The shows are going well.
We got a lot of new fans and that's great for me. There were a lot of
white kids who came to the show and they were very supportive. They got
the t-shirts and the CD's.
heard too much about the Ras Kass/Game beef but I think it's crazy from
what I heard. I have to call Ras to find out what's going on. I heard
about the bottle and all that. As soon as Ras tells me what happened I'll
tell you what I think.
I have known Ras for awhile and he's never been the type of person to
make stuff up or try for publicity stunts. I think what they say happened
happened. I have to call Ras. I do know Ras is a cocky dude. He's not
overzealous with it but he's a real dude. He's not going to hold his breath
against nobody. I don't know who started that and what's what. I'm going
to get the information. It's crazy though. Big Game and little Ras.
I don't think
I need any beefs right now. Nobody wants to get into it with me, plus
I don't need any publicity. I'm here with 12 O'Clock. I'm going to give
him the pen for a
minute. Here's 12. Hold on, he's cooking right now.
Yo, what's going on? I'm just chilling, cooking. It feels real good being
in the journal. We've been hitting the whole South. We've been killing
a lot of things going down right now. We're recording the Brooklyn Zu
album and we're working on a movie about Dirty and our life together.
Everybody's in it. We got a song on this new record for Dirty too. We
got two videos for the album too. The Brooklyn Zu album is hot. It's incredible.
The Dedication is coming out November 15. It's beautiful. I don't want
to say too much. When you hear it, you'll love it.
staying busy and trying to keep my name out there. I've been concentrating
on Brooklyn Zu. You know I have to keep my big brother's name alive. My
brother's heart was good and if you met him one time you were considered
family. I don't really look at people using his name in vein unless it's
for a negative thing. And something may look negative but they could be
doing it for a good reason. That's the way I look at it. Dirty is a giant
and I love him and I miss him right now. That's who I'm doing this for.
And for everybody
who doesn't know, I've been on every Dirty album ever put out. I'm on
the latest GZA record, the Nutty Professor Soundtrack and Iron Flag. We're
giving you a part of his life. His life is our life. It's something you
can believe in and it's going to bring hip-hop back. It's some grown people
music. Big up to HipHopGame. HipHopGame forever. I'm going to put you
guys back on with Killah.
Yo! I thought you guys would like that. We just did twelve dates in the
last fourteen days. We got to meet a lot of people. I'm supposed to go
back out with the RZA in November. I'm just working. As soon as I get
back to New York I'm going to hit you with some more material.
up, everybody? I'm good. I'm on the road right now. I'm going to South
Carolina, Orlando, Tallahassee and then Tennessee. I have shows all over.
We're rocking shit.
getting a great response down here. People really come out to the shows
and it's a chance for me to get new fans. I've been going all out on the
shows too. I've been doing the whole Heavy Mental set and they're loving
it. They're enjoying it. That's a great thing to see.
A lot of
people up North think there's a lot of racism down here. I don't really
see it right now. One drunk old man walked up to me and said, I'm drunk
as a buggy-eyed nigger. This was in Columbia, South Carolina. I said,
It's ok, you're drunk. If he wasn't drunk I would have hit him. I think
a lot of people think things but don't actually say them until they're
drunk. The liquor gives them a confidence.
And I can't
believe it's been ten years since 2Pac's death. He was a martyr and a
legend. It's sad that he went in such a violent way. He was spitting the
truth. He really had the chance to push what was really deep down in his
soul. He told us all his difficulties and the conspiracies the government
was doing through 2Pac. We as black people lost a lot as well as the whole
favorite 2Pac album? I would have to say Makaveli: The 7 Day Theory. My
favorite 'Pac songs are "White Manz World" and "Hail Mary"
That was a hard decision. There's a lot of great ones out there. 2Pac
inspired me because I knew he was always being honest with his fans and
trying to give them knowledge at the same time. He was for the people.
He was on that plight. I feel like we were both soldiers in that plight.
He got up there and really told the world how he felt. His pain showed
and most of what he went through was shown on TV. I had a chance to build
with him and he was actually a big fan of "B.I.B.L.E."
I told you
all last week about Conversations with God Part One. As soon as I finish
Part One I'm getting Parts Two and Three.
pretty tired now. I'm probably going to go get some sleep and get ready
for these shows. We got a whole bunch of shows coming up and we're going
to kill every one.
up? I'm very good right now. I'm real good right now. I'm reading Conversations
With God right now. A good friend introduced me to that book. That'll
be the book of the week to read this week.
I want to
talk about Black August a little bit. That was my comeback album. That
right there was my album to show everybody that I was back and that if
you put me in the studio by myself, I can eventually come up with something
brilliant. Black August was also broken apart. That's why I had to put
out Black August: Revisited. The label didn't want to clear any samples.
I told them we would be under the radar anyway. They took off some songs
and they wanted some commercial songs on there. They weren't professional
enough to come to me for that. They went behind my back on that. Black
August, in general, is a great album but it would have been a classic
if they kept a couple songs on it and didn't add a couple. I had one commercial
song I did as a joke and they added it. This album was like my rebirth
to getting on point where I could record songs like "Déjà
the album but I wasn't very happy with the response. Some people loved
it and some people said it was a very good album. I knew the potential
it had. That's probably why it upsets me. I wanted to kick more knowledge
on there. I wanted the original intro which is on Black August: Revisited.
I wanted to keep the album short and to the point.
definitely stood out. There was nobody I know who did a song like "Déjà
Vu" where a criminal keeps on murdering himself. It's crazy that
that song got overlooked. Nevertheless it's there. Then there's "When
I'm Writing." I know a lot of dudes heard that. That's a great song
right there and a lot of the lines right there got overlooked. That was
a song for every MC. Black August was a great album to me, still. I said,
I write rhymes like I'm doing time/Listen, when I hit the pen, I start
doing my sentence. A lot of dudes, that went over their head. When you
get locked up you do sentences
forward to checking out the Method Man album. He's one of my favorites.
I know he's complaining a lot about the media. I read somewhere where
he said the media shouldn't judge his stuff if they don't come from the
hood. I think Meth is going through something right now. How do I feel
about the media? I think they're full of shit. Pure music is pure music.
What they write depends on what they're looking for.
This is something
that's always been debated. I think you can still comment on rap music
if you've never grown up in the hood. Rap music is universal. It's for
everybody. A lot of my fans never grew up in the hood and a lot of them
did. I think at the end of the day the skills and techniques have to be
exciting. I just want the same push Method Man got. I'll take 60,000.
That's all right, especially if you put it out independently.
I never really
got caught up in reading reviews about myself. I tried to stay away from
that. I do get excited to hear what people have to say about the music
and the material. I do get excited sometimes because I do want to see
what the media says. It doesn't bother me though because I know who I
am. I know what I represent. Even though an album review may not be that
great, I know what point I'm trying to get across. I'll never stagnate
I heard the
Roots album is great. I haven't been hearing nothing lately. I definitely
have to check that out too. I think Black Thought is one of the most talented
MC's. He's a real crazy, talented MC. I definitely have to get the Roots
album. I have to hear what they're doing now. I think that as far as real
hip-hop coming back to the forefront, I think it's almost there. We have
to keep pushing and supporting the real shit. There's a crusade of pop
coming out and they're calling a lot of it "underground." I
don't know who gave it that title.
My new crib
is all good. I'm still getting settled but I'm having a great time. I'm
still adjusting and straightening things out.
change the Protocol of the Zion comment to please one person. I didn't
read the entire book. I read a lot of it, but I wanted to change that
quotation because there's a lot of controversy going on about that book.
I want to read it thoroughly before I comment on it.
and I definitely have to get back together. He's my boy so whatever we
do, we're going to do it up. I have to call him.
to check the MySpace for the tours. I'll be heading out soon. You'll see
what's coming next. I'll just put it that way.
up? I'm maintaining right now, just chilling. I've been hanging out a
lot. I just got up with Immortal Technique and GZA. We were having some
fun. Nas was there. It was all right. We talked about life in general.
We didn't talk so much about music as much as real shit. We looked at
the condition of music.
I'm in the
process of moving right now. That's crazy. I just need a place to get
my thoughts together. I just have to relax and get my thoughts together.
I have to try to execute a lot of my plans.
Let me clear
something up. The book, Protocol of the Zion, there's some bullshit going
on with that. When I told you to check it out, I wasn't supporting it.
I want to straighten that out. I'm not supporting that book in no way,
but I wanted you to be aware of it and see how corrupt the system is.
I didn't mean to say "check out that book." I meant to say "check
out the fallacies in the book."
the love on HipHopGame with the new tracks that went up.
news for the day is I'm going on tour on the 14th. I have another tour
coming up soon with the RZA. Me and him were talking and I think it'll
happen sometime in November. You can check it all out on my MySpace. I'm
just ready to get out on the road. We're hitting the whole Southeast region
so I'll be out in Florida.

up everybody? I'm feeling great. Right now I'm just chilling. I'm just
week, I'm planning on making some moves and getting back into it. I'm
looking for a book to study now.
I know getting
back to Brooklyn has made me more focused. I already have a thousand rhymes
in my head. It's the hood. You pick back up on the slang and what's going
on and all that, especially with different things going on in all parts
of Brooklyn. It's real. It's how you walk and how everybody looks at you
and all that. Everybody has their own style.
is bullshit right now. It just kills me how the media is right now. The
media is slowly draining the life out of real music. They're slowly draining
the life out of it and it's fucked up. They want to dumb us down and give
us nothing but lies. It's the result of ignorance. What kind of nation
are we going to be? I haven't picked up a magazine in so long. I remember
when the Quotable used to mean something. It used to mean strong lyrics.
When I get on there and see dudes lyrics, it's not all that deep. It's
I think it's
good for Papoose and his deal. Shout out to him and Kayslay. That's great
for them. That's crazy. Tell Jive I'll be up there tomorrow.
DMX is catching
some heat for not going overseas. I think he's going through a lot. Maybe
he's really against the war but whatever. We all know it's about oil.
Get those troops back home.
For the record,
The Offering is done. The problem is that I'm always adding songs to it.
I just added two new songs to it because I had to. I'm always going back
and forth on it, thinking of what to put on it and what to take off. I
know it's a classic album and it's just hard sitting on it. The Offering
is going to be a classic when it drops. It's going to save hip-hop. I
have no doubts about that.

for my tour. I'm going to try to catch up with Rakim too.

a lot of material. Cats are going to be bugging about that. Every time
we record it's special.

I'm back in BK, my home! I heard a lot of stuff was going on. I'm ready
to get back to business and release the album. We're just putting the
finishing touches on the album cover. It's great to be home. It's great
to see everybody. Me and my man were just kicking it and I was telling
him about the trip.
to let everyone know about Saviorz Day, the last Sunz of Man album and
how I wasn't on there. I was out there building with PSunn and I thought
it would be good to let everyone know why I wasn't on there. P said I
should let people know. It wasn't because I didn't want to be on it. On
the real, a lot of cats were going through different mentalities. I called
up to say, Put me on the album. At the time, Prodigal was like, Nah. I
remember calling one time and they hung up the phone. We went through
mad situations back then. I wanted to be on the album but a bigger price
was set for the Priest album. I said, Take the Sunz joint too. P and them
did the deal. I was going along minding my own business and then when
I heard they were doing an album and some of the Sunz called me and they
were complaining that they weren't getting that much money and it was
getting everybody fucked up. At the time I was like, Ok, bet, put me on
the album. I'm ready to come. Call me up. I called up and I spoke to P.
At that time, I think he was really at the forefront to running the whole
shit so he told me, Nah because they had something they were doing.
I felt that
was funny so I called up Razah and 60. They said I needed to be on the
album. Every time I called them I didn't know what they were working on,
but they did not want me on that album for some reason. That's crazy.
That's why I wasn't on Saviorz Day. I'm going to tell everybody the true
story. There are a lot of other true stories I'm going to tell because
I feel they're important and I'm a straight-up real Brooklyn dude. I'm
still riding. That's what happened. So for everybody who wants to know
the real story, I'll tell them. I said I was going to take time out to
address this in the journal. Prodigal was talking about situations with
the Sunz of Man and we shook on that.
happens when you get in these corporations. You have to be real with cats
because these corporations find out if you show any weakness. We all fall
short. You have to be strong. I need a thousand or even more dudes to
support what I'm doing. I know I have a great team behind me now and I
know that everybody's ready to roll and we're ready to roll as a unit.
I was telling dudes this a long time ago. Once your team is tight, look
at G-Unit, Dip Set, and even the Clan back in the day, everybody has to
be on point. The Clan is doing their own thing now and everybody still
comes together to make those efforts. But when you're just coming up and
you want a piece of this so-called American Dream, you can't be sleepwalking
through this shit because that's what they want. I want to taste the love
of the people instead of the illusion of the pie. In that aspect, that's
what happened, so my journal is going to be based on nothing but realness
was a great time in San Diego and I met some very interesting people up
there. You can still hit me on the MySpace too. Sometimes other people
are on it so it's not always me. I don't handle that all the time but
I'm checking it here and there.
formula for all that real shit, you'll see that I have not strayed from
that. We're going to team up and do this. I need a real, real team of
cats who will really run with a brother and we can scatter through this.
My team right now is solid but right now it's just based on a core of
true brothers I keep around me. I'm usually by myself. I keep the right
brothers around me. I make sure everybody around me is fam and that we
have the same ideal movement. My whole thing is I'm building up a family
right now. I've been getting a lot of love from females too. They're a
part of this movement. That's on the real. A lot of females are a part
of this movement and they've been showing me love. You can't just have
all testosterone around you. Some of these females can definitely roll.
They've written some of the greatest revolutionary rhymes. As I've gotten
older, I've started to realize that I have to be straight-forward with
everybody because I have a lot of shit that I've never came out with.
My fam is building up, plain and simple. If everybody is rolling with
the same idea, we're all good.
recording a lot lately. I have three albums worth of material. I've been
on the phone late nights a lot building with friends on some higher planes.
I'm advancing my mentality because I know what cats want from me, but
more importantly I know what I want from myself.
going to start getting more tracks from me on a regular basis. I got enough
stuff to start flooding the whole shit again. I still got killahpriest.net
and Wu-Tang Corps reached out to me for an interview. The fans want some
real deliverance and the fans need Priest for that. Music can't be held
on to so we're about to hit everyone with some real good shit. And to
the DJ's and websites fronting on me and my music, I think they're on
crack. They're approaching this game for the love of money and their names
will never be remembered. They'll be remembered as fools. They're talking
about mortal, today shit. In the sands of destiny, you'll just be a fraction
of a speck of a thought where we live eternally because the truth can't
be diluted and I think if you stand up for something it's greater than
falling for everything or bullshitting for an opportunity for today. That's
what they're doing. I'm for hip-hop. I'm here to give something to it.
I'm not here to just take. All these guys just want to take and take and
take and they're not putting anything back into the pyramid. They're chipping
away at it. They're getting cursed by the pharaoh in the tomb. I'm building
my place upon this pyramid, and not just the Egyptian one but the Mexican
one. We're going to make this for eternity.
need to listen now and people need to learn what true hip-hop is. It's
a true art. We have to retrain the listeners because they're listening

a fabricated softener. You want that hard truth. It's everything to me
and I love hip-hop like I've been saying over and over. That's all I want

my birthday! I'm hanging out and enjoying myself. I'm probably going to
go out to all the clubs. We're doing it big. August 16 is that day.
in California. I'm heading back soon. I stayed out so long because it's
dope and because I had so much work. I had twelve shows out here. That
kept me out here. I was doing some work with some cats in San Diego also.
I just want to tell Brooklyn, my borough, that I'm coming back. I'm setting
things straight. I always support my borough. I miss Brooklyn. I miss
the summertime in BK with the girls on the stoops and everybody is just
chilling. I miss that part. I don't miss the heat though. I just miss
the New York vibe of everybody just chilling out. I miss some of the parties
of New York.
I know Masta
Killa's album dropped. I haven't gotten a chance to hear it yet. I'm sure
he's got some shit on there though.
I heard Rick
Ross's album is at #1 on the charts. I don't even see the charts. All
I have to say is more people are supporting that shit than are supporting
that real shit. My album doesn't sound like it's going to be on any charts.
That's good. Support true hip-hop. If it dies out, then we can only blame
ourselves and crying about corporations destroying it is pointless. I
think the underground is bigger than the mainstream right now, it's just
the mainstream gets the most attention.
Oh, and I
got no presents today. Just me being here is my present. I got a call
from my seed and that's enough for me.
everybody to get out there and travel if you can. If you feel like you're
stuck in the hood, try to travel and get out. Learn about things. It's
a big world. SouthWest Airlines has some crazy rates.
trying to lay low and stay under the radar. Today is all about staying
low key and staying under the radar. I've been out of the loop for a minute.
I can't even tell you when the last time I bought an album was. All I
know is hip-hop is getting real sick.
I have no
books to recommend right now because I'm in the process of writing my
own book. I can't really speak on it too much right now. I'm going to
keep that on the low. I'm going to stay quiet on it but it's coming real
everybody on HipHopGame. I'm going to have some new freestyles on there
as soon as I can get them.

up, everybody? Long time no speak to everybody. I'm just rolling right
now in San Diego. I did the Rock the Bells show in San Diego and I also
did Street Scene. I did the Rock the Bells with Wu-Tang. It was an O.D.B.
tribute. It was crazy. Everybody was there. Big shout out to Mos Def and
Talib Kweli. They gave me a big shout-out. There were a lot of people
saying they listened to me when they were coming up. Lauryn Hill was there
too. It was crazy. It was like a big block party. The whole Wu-Tang came
out. That was crazy.
I was talking
to Kanye West backstage. We were talking about "B.I.B.L.E."
I was telling him, "Yo, I know you had to listen to that" because
I know he did "Jesus Walks." He said, "Yeah." "Jesus
Walks" is just like "B.I.B.L.E." except I never shot a
video for it. I gave him my mixtape and I told him to holler at me. His
eyes lit up when he got that. I said "whaddup" but I didn't
say anything else. Kanye is cool and everything. He says a lot of positive
things and he makes great music and makes a lot of great statements.
is crazy! Raekwon had to choke the shit out of Steve-O from Jackass. Steve-O
got naked and did two backflips for the O.D.B. He was locked up with him
but the brothers didn't know who he was so Raekwon snatched him up on
stage and made him apologize to the crowd. It was sad! He was standing
next to me trying to give me a five. It was bugged. Raekwon played the
shit out of him. Shit was real. I was like, "Damn, he's going to
knock this nigga out." Rae was like, "I'm going to go to jail
tonight if you don't apologize." I don't think he knew who he was.
It was crazy.
hip-hop. It's coming back. They love it on this coast. On my coast they're
playing that hip-pop. You have that homo radio everywhere. I'm sticking
to that real shit and everybody's asking me for The Offering. I was selling
a lot of the mixtapes there. If you don't have one yet go get one at killahpriest.net.
I saw a lot
of people talking about the conspiracy theories not being real. Anthony
J. Hilder is serious. For everybody who doesn't think it's serious, look
around you. Anthony J. Hilder interviewed me, RZA and Method Man. The
realest moment was when he interviewed me and RZA. I do research. I'm
not just going to take information from somebody when I don't know who
the fuck they are. I'm not going to sit there and listen to the Illuminati
when I don't know who's putting out that information. I don't read The
Scriptures as a devout Christian. I read it as real life like Jesus was
murdered. He was rolling with his twelve Disciples just like niggas roll
through the hood. We're just rolling like Christ and the Apostles. All
of us are Christ. We have to look inside ourselves before we look into
I got to
see Immortal Technique out here so we chatted it up. Big up to my man

to go back in. I got a freestyle for all the people. I got a lot of work
I'm about to be doing. I'm about to start this next mixtape. I just go
in there with whatever feelings I have and do it. I feel some shit tonight
and I feel like after coming from that hip-hop show, I see hip-hop is
in a definite state where it needs some CPR. It's dying on the fucking
table. I think The Offering is going to be the plasma for that.
a lot of MC's out there who really don't show skills. I'm completely out
of touch with what they're doing. I'm not hating, but I hate those fucking

up? I'm great. Cali was great, man. Everything was great. I'm on my way
back to NY right now. I'm ready to come back home. It was good. I got
to see a lot of things. I got with a group out there, Psycho Realm, that
was real dope. For the most part I'm enjoying the sun and getting my weight
is great and I'm real healthy, but I put on a couple pounds. A brother
loves to eat! I can't help that. I just have to eat healthier food. You
have your laws. You have your dietary law. You have your morality law.
And you have your civil law which is how you treat a person. That's how
you deal with life every day and how you deal with each other. Your civil
law is how you interact with each other. I'm just doing this dietary thing
and trying to wash out some of the toxins our body takes in. I'm just
trying to eat the foods that give your body energy. That's always a good
chilling out on everything. I'm just listening to my album right now with
my man Netalli and Black Moses. We're bugging out. Also the show was great.
Prodigal Sunn showed up. I sold some ill shirts too and sold some mixtapes.
been building with people and talking about a lot of things relating to
government conspiracies. Remember how I told you I met up with Anthony
J. Hilder? We were out here really kicking it and I was building with
some people outside of this music thing. Music is an instrument to talk
to the people. It's always great to do that but we have to build on other
planes as well because the world is a big, big place. I was just building
with a lot of people and educating them on the science whether it be moral
science or the Bible because things always come back to that.
get to go see any movies out here but we got real cinematic just by talking
and building on the government and where we're heading. They're coming
out with this microchip called the digital angel that they're going to
put in our heads. All you have to do is Google that. I can't think of
the website right now but go find it. It's all part of Revelations. If
you look at the 13th Chapter, you'll see that. It's about building and
seeing what moves we're going to make. It's not about talking anymore.
It's about showing and proving. It's about doing it and making moves and
educating yourself by any means necessary.
we have to get more spiritual. Look at how the stars are perfectly aligned.
We have to look because we are in line with that. Look at our body and
how that's in a line. We can be in harmony with other people once we're
in harmony with ourselves. That's the first step. There are worlds beyond
worlds and you may get into it so so ill that an angel will drop down.
He'll say, "He's on some high science. Let me see what he's talking."
This may be over some people's heads but this is for the ones who know.
We need that.
I can give

to give him straight medicine. We can't be playing around with it.
get out to many clubs out here, I just know that they're all on the Heavy
Mental shit out here. That's an album I have to go back to and study.
The more I look at that, the more I know where I am and where I have to
go. I realize I have to give the people what they want. I think they want
that straight raw, pure essence of hip-hop. I have the cure. I have the
fix. Every day I'm going in and right now I have a lot of stuff on my
hands. I don't ever want to stop writing as long as there's breath and
touch on subjects but I would rather get into them. Right now we live
in an age where practicing what you preach is very important. I'm looking
around and I just want to talk about the real hip-hop community and people
supporting that real stuff. When my album comes out, make sure you cop
it by any means necessary. I know what my fans want and it's time to go
to war against the system. I'm fed up with everything and I'm fed up with
how they're trying to destroy hip-hop, period. If rap were a heart it
would be time for a triple-bypass. We're going to have to pump that heart
and get the arteries pumping again. It can't be oversaturated music. That's
only more candy and more sugar slowing down your body because you're not
eating real food. This is herbal-hop. This is hip-hop detox.
I don't really
have a book for you this week. Life is the new book. Travel. Don't listen
to what the TV's telling you. The population would be shocked if I talked
about what I found out about the government. Look at how the government
knocked down the towers so we would trust them more. That's against the
Most High and who we are in our souls. It's very important to not be followers
of everything that's given to us. I just want everybody who's reading
this to stand up and take a stand. Be a man. Be a man of your word and
be a man of everything. Better yet be a god. Start your own government
and govern your own self. I found the light that guides me now. I have
to give that light to you in The Offering.

to parties and straightening up my artwork for it.
two shows out here in Orange County and they were amazing. I had a special
guest with Prodigal Sunn coming through. I had a lot of artists rocking
with me and there are a lot of artists out there who need to be pushed
to the forefront. It was great. I see that we're progressing slowly day
by day. Also for the record me and Prodigal Sunn talked about a new Sunz

We talked about a lot of things that happened in the past with Sunz of

I'm ready for it to come out like the fans are ready for it to come out.
I'm trying to live up to the hype. I just want everybody to remember what
I told them about The Offering. I'm not going to talk about it anymore.
It's just classic hip-hop shit. That's all I can say. I played it for
some of my peoples like Ghost and they're bugging out saying it's crazy.
been chilling at the beach. It was a great day down there. I had my umbrella
up there just doing my thing. It was great. Me and my lady were just sitting
there checking out the sun and the waves. I was just observing and thinking
about everything I have to do once I get back to the gritty New York.
I have to
get ready to go out to the Ghostface show. He's out here with Trife. The
reception out here has been crazy. I don't use a hypeman when I'm performing
so I can remember everything. But that's why I have to keep it short this
a whole lot going on this week. I'll have more next week, I'm just moving
right now. I'm about to go meet up with Ghost. And everybody has been
showing me mad love and everybody's checking out HipHopGame. There are

up, everyone? I'm chilling right now on the beach out in Cali. I'm taking
a little break from the studio. It is crazy out here. I'm just chilling
out. This past week has been great.
I got a chance
to meet Anthony J. Hilder. He's one of the top-dogs in the conspiracy
theory world. We talked about everything from the ancient empire to the
modern-day civilization. We talked about everything from President Bush
to what's going to be coming at us. I'm actually working on a song about
stuff like that. He somewhat inspires my music. He definitely has an influence
on me over what the government is doing and what's going on. We have to
pay attention to the poor children. They have to tune in to what this
government is doing. They're planning on hitting the Latinos and Black
populations first and they're going to trickle it down from there. We
have to get real information these days. We were talking about that and
his concerns. It's very interesting. I've been following his stuff for
years and for me to meet him out in Cali is crazy.
about my website. I actually own KillahPriest.com. They just took down
my site, but I own the name. It takes a disrespectful person to do that,
to take my website down for no reason. I'm past that. I own the name so
it's all good.
I love the
responses I'm getting from "Through Millenniums." Phenom and
I put that together and it's some real deep shit. That's just the tip
of the iceberg. Somebody showed me the comments the other day. I can't
believe it's already up to eighty-five.
I saw someone
wanted me to talk about me supposedly being the ninth member of the Wu-Tang
Clan. A lot of the members and fans always felt I could be the next member.
I always liked that. I could definitely hold it down. I'm not scared to
challenge anybody out there. It's all about sitting down and putting that
together. I'll definitely hold the torch. My concern now is just holding
down the fort.
For all the
fans out there and people listening, just know that anybody can get it.
That's how it goes. Big, small, old, young, or whatever. I'm about teaching
the babies and I never stopped doing that. I never stopped dropping jewels.
A lot of cats don't drop any jewels. They claim that everything's peace
and all that, but then they turn into drug kingpins. It's not about that.
The only kingpin I am is a king with a pen. I'm not no drug kingpin.
When I get
back to New York, I should be signing this deal for The Offering. We're
all frustrated with how long it's taking. It's all good. Everybody's still
supporting. The next mixtape will be out in a minute. It's funny to me
that some of these guys aren't respecting the real art. They're going
to be suckers when the real shit comes back. I'm going to remember all
that shit. Most of the people are just followers. They're not leaders.
I'm going to be selling a bunch of Black Market tapes. Those are my conspiracy
tapes that people haven't heard yet.
I also should
be working on a book soon. I'm going to start that in five minutes. I've
been thinking about this book. The book is basically going to be about
things I've been about things I've been about in my life. It's going to
be like "B.I.B.L.E." and things in the industry that you should
look for. The next book I write is going to be like science-fiction based
on a true story. It's going to be based on eastern philosophy and look
at ancient Israel to here. I'm going to go into 70 A.D. into fleeing to
Africa to avoid Roman persecution. It's going to be heavy. I've learned
a lot of information from traveling. With traveling comes great experience,
like meeting Anthony J. Hilder.
I have a
show out in Ocean in Orange County. I have a couple in Long Beach. I've
just been getting shows, but for the most part just chilling. I've been
maintaining. I'm also going to go to Vegas and just chill. I'm in the
beach and I'll hit the studio with DJ Muggs. I'm going to get back to
Santa Monica Beach. Until next week, I'm just taking pictures of something

KillahPriest.com and they're trying to take over my name and my site.
I'm working on getting the whole situation together. People are so silly
when they have to hold people down and pull people back. That's just dealing
with life, basically.
getting out of jail should be good for hip-hop. Most likely, being incarcerated

watch the BET Awards. I missed this one. I heard it was kind of bogus.
I heard it was kind of gay. That's what happens when you don't support
real hip-hop. They're trying to do to hip-hop what they did to jazz and
that's make it more mainstream and all that. It's going to come back,
just like my site. BET is not Black Entertainment Television. BET, I don't
know who they're hiring right now. I just have to stick to doing what
I do. All these corporations are run by a higher power that governs the
rules and they're all under the umbrella. It's all under the dark forces.
Young Jeezy, all those guys, they're all the same. I don't even watch
too much TV, but I would take MTV over BET because they're showing all
types of stuff.
on a new mixtape right now. There's going to be some new exclusives and
all that. I have some other things in the workings and I need to give
the people what they want from me. People want me to take them to another
planet. I'm well-respected and they want that raw Priest.
I'm real happy about is my son graduating from high school. I know I already
mentioned this, but I need to mention it again. The graduation was live.
I ain't even going to front. I had a son when I was real young and seeing
him graduate was incredible. The graduation was fly. Everybody was there
including his moms. It was just a beautiful feeling. I'm not going to
try to push emceeing on him. He's going to do what he wants to do. He's
been on one of my albums before. It's really up to him. My middle son
just takes the pen sometimes and starts putting stuff down. He has some
fly joints. I would never push it on them, though, because it's up to
them. I used to play a lot of football. That was my first love. You know
how the story goes...it turns into the streets. But I played for awhile
and then I started wanting to get into rap music.
I want to
talk about View From Masada because we haven't really talked to much about
that. That's better than a lot of albums out now. It was my second LP
and at the time, I think that a lot of songs on View From Masada that
got pulled off. It was definitely a dope album and it was different, and
a lot of people didn't take to it. It had some hard songs on there like
"Maccabee Revolt" and "Hard Times." There were some
party/happy joints on there too. They were still dope. I just don't think
MCA pushed it hard enough. It taught me to stick to what I do. They wanted
me to do songs that would play on the radio, but it's not about making
a song for the radio. It's about making songs to push to radio. It's not
about radio-friendly songs. It's about pushing the songs. A lot of dudes
are trying to make pretty-ass hooks and it's all fabricated because it's
about who's pushing it and how it's getting pushed. I think View From
Masada is dope even though they took off "Last Supper" and "Fall
of Solomon." There were a lot of tracks on there that showed different
sides. I showed "Gotta Eat" which was sick. I think that was
a different type of style where I could show cats Priest is gothic and
I study literature. I can also get drunk and I can also tell stories.
One song that a lot of people sleep on is "When Are We Ever Going
to Learn?" Another song that stands out is "If I Die."
I know a lot of MC's listen to that song right there because I can hear
it's influence. I just wanted to show another side of hip-hop and art.
At the time of View From Masada, I had just bought my house, my cousin
was alive, and I was talking to Amil at that time. There was a lot of
stuff going on then. My cousin died and I was starting to see a lot of
people's true colors. I had to do what I had to do so I could learn what
I had to learn.
I have a
show out in California soon. I'm going out there for a month just to get
everything right. Then I'm going to shoot back. I'm getting the album
cover solidified right now. That's what we're doing right now. It looks
great. I have volumes coming of The Offering. I have a lot of things that
I want to do. If anyone wants to collaborate with me, shout me out. You
can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you cop the mixtape too.

This past week has been pretty good. There's been a lot of progress going
on. I'm trying to get killahpriest.net back up. I had a little chaos,
but that's ok. I'll overcome all that. I've been with my sons, just chilling
out. One of my sons is graduating high school, so that's a great thing.
I'm very excited about that. He's going to college and he's very on point.
He's very quiet but very smart. I don't know if he'll follow in my hip-hop
footsteps. He'll choose his own route. He's probably going to get into
the business thing and he's going to manage clothes and things. He wants
to get behind the scenes. He's still young and developing.
A lot of
people are asking me if I feel old having a son graduating from high school.
The answer is no. I started young. A lot of people mistake us for brothers.
It's kind of funny because we don't even talk and tell people that when
we're chilling. It's cool because we can joke around and we can hang out,
go to the movies, and do all that.
I think Lord
Jamar's album is going to be good. He's a deep individual. They deal with
knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. He's from a 5% crew, and I am also
with Wu-Tang. He's spreading knowledge and that's a great thing. I don't
think there's enough knowledge out there today in hip-hop culture.
I think that
boycott Jay-Z is doing is wonderful. I think we should boycott a lot of
drinks and come out with our own drink. I think a lot of rappers should
come together and develop their own things because we have a lot of money
now and we can keep it in the hip-hop culture. We've bought a lot of other
products and a lot of their products are poison. Look at the food we're
eating. A lot of these major corporations are just drug dealers. The government
gave them a title to push their drugs out on people.
to switch my whole diet. I'm trying to leave all the Snickers alone. I

I'm trying to teach my seeds that. I don't eat mayonnaise. I'm trying
to get back on track and I have to give myself time to purge all that
poison out of my pores. Right now, I'm eating only nice food. I stopped
drinking for a minute and I feel very positive. A lot of these major companies
are getting on my nerves and trying to negotiate with their devil contracts.
All these fake revolutionaries need to get together and come down to the
people. Don't be scared to talk revolution to the people. I'm going all
over the place right now because that's how I feel. The world is all over
the place and you have to pick up all these rocks.
too many religions out there. There are too many religions out there and
all of that is part of a genocide program. Let me say this for the record.
What I was talking about on "B.I.B.L.E." was not about religion.
Really, it was a history song. You can learn stuff from the story. All
these religions try to grab on to things and put their teachings and pagan
ways on it and that's what messes up a lot of young individuals. Nobody
wants to relate to a faggot Christ. I'm not taking this out of text, but
you can't relate to a hippie-type dude who gets hit with rocks and turns
the other cheek. That's why people don't go to church, because the Jesus
they worship is wrong.
We need a
whole different book. We can't have dudes saying one verse in church and
then doing a split and giving out cornbread and fried chicken in the back.
That type of Jesus is the wrong type of Jesus. We need to know the original
guy who walked there in poverty and only went to the people who were in
poverty and kicked it only with them. He didn't go up to the government
and kick it with the rich people. In ancient Rome, when they found out
he was setting up something new, then they killed him and had him murdered.
A lot of people don't want to see the truth in that. Religion changes
things. That Jesus is a whole different deity. The Jesus they're pushing
out is really Zeus with a different name. It's getting deep, but it will
all be in The Offering.
I'm not worried
about people agreeing with me. The truth is for those who seek it. I don't
want anyone to take what I say at face value. Go research. Don't just
listen to me. Go research for yourself. You can look up your own information,
but you should seek knowledge. I went and searched for knowledge. If you're
just sitting behind the desk not agreeing with me because of your emotions,
that's wrong. This is not an emotional book, it's a spiritual book. We
have to put emotions aside sometimes. They think I have religious songs,
but I'm not religious. I'm just spiritual. The companies and corporations
don't understand me. I'm not trying to break out of a chain, but we have
to snap out of the bonds they put on our brains. I grew up in the church
like everyone else because I didn't have a choice, but I've seeked the
true meaning of being here.
is done. I'm not doing anymore songs for that. I'm just doing songs for
other projects. The last song I did is called "Essential" which
is a beautiful jewel for the album. The Offering is very strong. This
is not just talk. Everyone's heard my mixtape. I'm not going to be putting
out too many more freestyles because the young guys are going to think
this is how Priest is coming. I can back my shit up with my music because
I'm very confident in my music. I'm not cocky, I'm confident. I love hip-hop

set. We're going to gather up the lost tribes and celebrate. Once we take
down this weakened society and what they're putting on us, we're going
to put out music for the soul. There's a lot of fake MC's out there putting
out fake music. We're going to spearhead it with The Offering. I say "we"
because it's a movement and it's not just me. It's the Black Market Movement.
There's a real strong need for it. I feel their cries out there in hip-hop.

Tony Touch at the time, and I told him shit was just crazy. Tony said,
"Yo, we're going to bring it back though." I hadn't been out
to a club in awhile. I cut back on my drinking and I feel more spiritual
and more blessed. The more people hate, the greater I feel inside. There's

I can't stress strongly enough, we have to strongly support real hip-hop
and real lyrics. Don't let them fool you with that propaganda. There's
a couple DJ's out there on some deep shit, I was just talking with him.
They don't know what to do with this hip-hop music and it's a crying shame
that it's going on. For the younger dudes, get up on some real shit. Listen
to some real hip-hop for a minute. Listen to some dudes who kick some

You used to go to the club to listen to the joints over the speakers,
but now I go to the clubs to socialize and talk to girls. The girls are
changing now. It's crazy. Probably because back then there was Queen Latifah

This is hip-hop.
Hip-hop is supposed to be based on rebellion for not just young people
but all people. Put it this way, it's getting to the point where I put
down the vodka and am getting back to where I started. It starts with
knowledge, then wisdom, and then you understand. That's the jewels for
the day. Once you understand everything, the world is clear. I operate
my whole regime that same way. We move that way. We call ourselves the
Maccabeez and Immaculate Conception. It's real. The movement is about
to start right now and that's what hip-hop needs. And to all you finger-snapping
niggas who are hating, who are running up to the clubs with your gay little
suits on, you're about to get rolled on. We used to throw your ass out

rich in my head, as soon as I get in that fold, I'm going to grip this
game with a praying mantis grip.

My trip to
Russia was incredible. It was my first time out there. It was very nice
out there. The weather was beautiful out there. There was a great turnout
for the show. They came out and showed love. I sold a lot of mixtapes
out there, so it was a good thing. I can't even front. I slept on Russia
until I got out there. They can party out there. They showed us a real
good time. I had a friend who ran a studio out there where me and GZA
recorded at over here in the States, so we went and hung out with him.
And you know I had to taste the Russian vodka. That shit was good.
Coast needs to get their swagger back because overseas is into that real
hip-hop. I'm glad it's spread out and they respect the real shit. That's
what I respect. It's like the 1980's over there. They're breakdancing
over there. They treated us real nice over there. We did some nice sightseeing
over there. I saw the Castle of Saint Basil. The top of it is real gold.
We went to Lenin's tomb. We went to a couple of real good spots, let's
put it that way. And the Russian women, forget about it! They got some
nice girls over there! They're really beautiful.
Me and Muggs
were talking about doing a track. We had talked about that in Australia,
but now we have the beat and we're going to work on it. I'm looking at
longevity on this and I'm going to keep doing this.
for everyone wondering, Daddy Rose is still locked up. I went to see him
after his brother's funeral. He's sharper than ever, doing his number.
When he gets out, we're going to do something. I know he's talking with
AZ now. He's a true Maccabee and when he comes out, we're going to do
something. He'll be back and it'll be good. It's real sad about his brother.
I also want
to send a shout out because I have a lot of love for Allah Sun and I want
to thank everybody who supported him. A lot of people sent me sympathy
letters on him and I just want to let everyone know I read them and appreciate
I heard Method
Man is dropping his new album. I haven't heard it yet but it should be
about DMX getting in trouble again. DMX is crazy. Everybody goes through
something and the brother is obviously going through something. Spiritually,
I think I can hear him crying out. Hold your head. DMX is the new ODB.
We need to
build our own banks. We need that. The rich man is out to destroy the
poor and I think some of these leaders and financially-stable artists
need to get up and start their own bank. And don't be scared either. We
built this shit up. I have to get revolutionary here. And we as artists
need to get together and look at getting health benefits.
I also want
to talk about the political situation in the country and the unfairness
of black people in the justice system. Look at how these cops build their
power. You have some good cops and some cops are here to protect us. Where
I'm from in the hood, these cops are trying to put fear into the kids.
A cop should be a hero to all these kids. In the suburbs, a cop symbolizes
security. I don't like the mental abuse they build. We live in a sick-ass
country and sick-ass things happen. While I'm on this subject, I should
talk about women...just kidding.

everybody? I'm just getting ready to go to Russia. I'm about to take it
out there. I'm looking forward to going out there. I've never been out
there. It's crazy, though. You have to have your visa straight. They require
a lot of paperwork to get out there. I was actually just on HipHopGame
checking out the comments to the last entry and someone was telling me
A lot of
people are really supporting the movement. I see a whole different genre
coming. I don't want anybody to give up yet. I still haven't signed a
I saw someone
talking about the nazi movement going on in Russia. I'm not worried about
that. They're all over the globe. I'm not worried about them. We're good.
I didn't know they had a nazi movement going on over there. Fuck that.
I got something for them. If they want to start some nazi shit Plus
a lot of those dudes are ignorant. They don't even know what they're talking
about. I just read the Da Vinci Code and the symbolism means a lot. It
goes way back, and they're not even original with that.
someone asking my thoughts on the conflict in Palestine. I think it's
madness over there. Fighting over land is an ongoing fight over there
and what's making it worse is the government butting in and shooting people
and supplying guns. Everybody's fighting each other. I don't really want
to take sides, but real is real. First of all, I feel we, as black people,
belong over there. That land over there has to be cultivated first. It
has to be straightened out as far as settling the differences between
both nations. Peace will be restored when you have the true prince to
bring it in. The reason why everything is so corrupt right now is because
the government is getting involved. Don't believe everything you hear.
The government is supplying the guns and there's troops over there and
they don't even know what they're doing. War is money. It's been that
way from the beginning. People need to get wisdom now and look around.
All of these prophecies were spoken about in Revelations. Peace won't
be restored to Israel until the true princes come back. That's brothers
who are in the spirit and deal with the truth. There are brothers and
sisters all over who deal with the truth. We need to be the true princes
that we are. The world is too big for one person to be focused on shooting
one person over here. I don't promote violence. I talk about it because
it's real but glorifying violence is not real. There's no coming back
after that. I lost too many homeboys over here.
And to everyone
wondering about 9th Prince, I spoke to him a little while back, maybe
like six months ago. That was messed up what happened with him. He'll
be out. He's holding his head. He ain't doing too much but lifting weights
and puffing cigarettes. Sometimes a little time by yourself never hurt.
You can actually come out good from that. I'm looking forward to speaking
to that brother soon.
to get some knowledge. Don't just stay on the porno sites.
someone brought up the Shabazz the Disciple album. Sitting down and doing
it is nothing. We just have so many different projects going on. I saw
him at the funeral. It's sad, but sometimes death brings people closer.
'Bazz has been doing his thing from the get-go. We can definitely do an
album together right now. I don't have that many projects on my hands,
but everyone wants to do a Priest collabo.
Day and the summer coming up, I just want everyone to be on point. Keep
your mind straight because it gets dangerous out there. The cops are supposed
to be out there protecting us, but keep your eyes open and stay out of
I just did
an interview with this French magazine. They were asking me about some
of the bootleg material that's out there. Don't be listening to that material
out there. If people put out material on me, sometimes I'm not even knowing.
They'll just be throwing material out there like a new Sunz of Man album
and they get some verses from songs that aren't really done and they'll
call it The 8th Testament or The 7th Testament. Those are songs that are
put together. It's not really "me." I want to address that because
I don't want anybody to get it twisted. Some songs out there, I'm just
sounding wack on there and it sounds corny because the production is mad
low and the timing is off.
out there, Priest is a lyricist. I do emceeing. There's no half-stepping.
When you listen to me, go get Heavy Mental or The Last Shall be First.
Those are real songs and that's really the only real Sunz of Man album
we did together. All the other Testaments aren't really songs. They've
just been put together by somebody and thrown out there. I don't really
know who it was. Now you're going to get to see The Offering. You'll hear
the difference on my mixtape between real songs and put-together songs.
I'm out to Russia. Peace to everybody.

everyone? I'm doing good. I just came from the wake of my man Allah Sun.
That was sad. I'm just looking at the whole genocide program that these
governments are trying. It's so crazy looking at the cycle of life. We
have to enjoy the time that we have here and we have to place a lot of
consideration into the life we have. We have to take advantage of the
time we have on this planet to the maximum with what we do because you
never know when it's going to happen.
had a lot of family. AZ came through. Papoose came through and showed
love because that was their peoples also. Mostly it was just Brownsville
and Bedstuy out there. A lot of the gods showed up. Allah Sun had this
song called "They Left Me for Dead" where he's talking about
a lot of deep shit in his rhymes. We also did "The Last Shall Be
First" produced by Magnetic, who produced a couple of tracks for
my album. I was just checking out that whole science. It's deep.
It felt great
getting back to New York. I'm hearing a lot of positive feedback from
The Prelude to the Offering. People are ready for The Offering now and
I feel everybody. It's time for a change. I have meetings here and there.
Hopefully the right one will jump on it because I paid my dues. Now it's
time to show and prove. I'm going to prove it now. I'm not even going
to talk about it no more. I've told all these emcees and everyone else
that Priest is coming and I'm not going to stop now.
I saw somebody
on the comments was asking if I could bring Nas and Cormega back together.
Anything's possible, but I don't know the situation between them. All
I know is there's a beef. Anything's possible as long as I'm around. Me
and Cormega have to hook up. Every time that we see each other, it's all
peace. If I could do that, who knows? Anything's possible.
what everyone's thinking about Jay's verse on the "Hustling (Remix)."
It was kind of sick. I think Jay went in for the most part. I have to
listen to it again. That's the thing about it, with all these MC's, you
hear a lot of them, but you don't hear a lot of us. You get twenty albums
apiece, and then you get fifty albums of them in a group, so you know
their style and what they're coming with. What we got is vintage. I have
vintage shit. I don't mean to be cocky, but I've built with Rakim and
people put me up in those categories. It's time for something new. These
MC's come with all these albums and then part two's and three's and sequels
and it's just crazy.
hip-hop album I bought was the Cam'ron joint. I'm not going to front.
Cam'ron can rhyme. He makes me laugh my ass off sometimes, but he talks
mad gully so I definitely have to hear what he has to talk about.
But I'm going
to put out the album that's going to save the day. Nobody's putting out
an album that can move me like mine. I'm not worried about that. I don't
mean to sound cocky, but nothing out there is really messing with me right
now. It's not thought-provoking, there's no type of concept, there's no
type of cinematic feel to it, and I can see what MC's are trying to do
and where they're trying to go, but they're just not going there.
to go to Russia. I'm about to get my Russia on. I'm going out there with
the GZA on May 30. When I go to those places, I want to see the orthodox
churches. When I went to Australia, I wanted to see the Aborigines and
the jungles. I'll take my camera with me. I want to see a lot of the historic
parts. That's my first time I'm going to be out that way. I'm definitely
going to go out there and get shit moving.
to go see the Da Vinci Code. There's a lot of books out there I want everybody
to check out. This week's book is going to be The Protocols of the Zion
and William Cooper's Behold a Pale Horse. We're taking it back. The most
simple things and the things we've heard before are happening now. There's
a genocide going on right now. I'm serious. Look at what America is doing
right now. We're on a global takeover right now. Shit's about to get shut
down. We, as a people, are going to have to be in tune. This isn't no
scare message or no new-age movement or no religious cult movement. This
is a spiritual reality check. The soul, the body, and the mind are going
to have to be combined to fight off this genocide coming through. That's
why I have to come out with The Offering, The Midnight Offering, and all
these albums. It's gotten me to the point where I'm just going to record.
Go out and

from Australia. That trip was incredible. It was amazing. It was my first
time out there. I saw Perth, Sydney, and Melbourne. It was so wild how
the fans accepted me and GZA out there. They went crazy for GZA, but when
they saw I was the special guest, they lost their mind. That makes you
keep on pushing it. I also sold a lot of Prelude to the Offering mixtapes.
I went to
the beach out there. It was crazy. I saw a dolphin. Then we went to the
museum and aquarium. I like animals like that. We saw the sharks and the
dolphins and everything. Self-Scientific was chilling with us too. It
was crazy. Me and GZA spazzed out in the room and were going back-and-forth
with the rhyming, writing and chilling.
And DJ Muggs
is crazy! We were bugging out. We were actually going to record out there
but the people lost our luggage. Me and Muggs' luggage was lost for a
minute. We were going to knock some tracks out. Me and GZA worked on our
routines And I played The Offering for everyone and they lost their

It was sunny. It was like Cali and Miami mixed together. We saw surfers

a chance to sit back out there and think and plot. I'm ready to do another
mixtape and then hit them with The Offering.
gone for awhile, you're always happy to be home, but to be honest with
you, I could have done another six months out there. The hotel was bananas.
It was crazy. I have to go back out there. Australia's great.
I also got
to see the Aborigines. We got to see a couple of them. They were real
dark and they had pale hair. I didn't get to really build with none of
them, but it was amazing to see them.
I was in
the hotel and one dude came up to me like, "Yo Priest, whaddup?"
Then he started kicking "B.I.B.L.E." to me and he was breaking
down my albums and telling me how my albums touched him. It was crazy.
When me and
GZA were on stage, it was crazy. Our chemistry was so crazy that the promoters
said they always want me to be with GZA. GZA's show alone is incredible
and our chemistry works so well on stage. We did "4th Chamber"

This is important.
One of my peoples just passed away, Allah Sun, Mr. Sunshine. He was from
Maccabeez and Black Market. He was murdered. That really messed me up.
He was on "Live by the Gun" on View from Mesada. He was with
me throughout the making of The Offering. That's disturbing to me what
happened. He just did a song with Papoose. I want you to know he was a
beautiful brother. His poetry was sick and his flow was crazy. He always
kicked knowledge every time you'd see him. He had a cool demeanor about
him. He was a real brother. A real brother. You don't find too many like
that. He was very militant. He was a revolutionary at heart. I just want
the world to know we lost someone who was very strong and very talented
lyrically. He was a lyrical genius. Before 50 came along, he could sing
and rhyme at the same time, and he did it intelligently. He was Daddy
Rose's brother from Maccabeez. My condolences go out to his family and
right now is to get on the grind. I just hit up a couple execs and I have
a couple of meetings. The plan right now is to get The Offering out and
to let the world know that Priest is here. I've been getting a lot of
good feedback. I'm on my grind. People have been putting out a lot of
songs on me right now. I'm so focused on what I have to do that I'm not
going to let anything distract me from that. I have to execute this deal
now. I'm going to go real hard on the streets right now. That's what it's
about right now. I'm trying to get my name out there and stay busy. I'm
about to get up with some more cats. I've been reading some of the comments
on the journal about Nas. We just kicked it at a party, so that's going
to be great. We're going to do some work. That's my man right there. Everyone
loved the song we did together, that's not even for the album. We're definitely
going to work out some new things. That's a cool brother. Things are just

I'm great. I'm just chilling. I just did an interview on Shade45 with
Ras Kass. I'm on my way to Australia right now. I'm leaving at 6:00. I've
never been on that side of the world before.
A lot of
people have been coming up to me telling me about the journal. That's
been great. I've been loving the comments on the journal. I definitely
thank HipHopGame for giving me this opportunity because there is a lot
I have to tell you. I first came in through the RZA and the GZA. A lot
of cats don't even know that history and how I got here. For the RZA and
the GZA to take me in, I mean, I was their number-one student. I was their
number-one cat. Learning all that stuff around the RZA was crazy. Then
he took me to the GZA. Being around them and learning the game around
them and now having to come out on my own has been a great experience
as far as this music industry is concerned. I've had rocky roads, but
who doesn't? Everything has to come out right.
to know my stats. People tell me I've always been humble, but I know what
I'm worth and I know what I'm capable of. I've been around some of the
greatest MC's out there and I've been told by G. Rap and KRS-One that
my lyrics are dope. I'm fans of these dudes and they told me good things
about my lyrics. When G. Rap tells you that your shit is crazy, you've
got to be like, "Ok, I'm writing some shit now."
of cats ask if I'm religious. No. "Religion" comes from a Greek
word which means "to divide and conquer." I don't like to diss
any religion or sect, but I am not a part of any religion. I don't want
to discriminate against anybody because I know people love the music,
but I deal with nationalities.
check out Chino XL's album "Poison Pen." He's one of the greatest
lyricists. We were going back-and-forth on the phone. He told me, "When
we do this, it's going to be nuts." I knew that. As soon as we finish
up the Black Market Militia album, I want to do something with Chino.
What can I say about dude? He's incredible. He's got the total package.
He dropped an incredible verse on the song we did together, I did my thing,
and that was it.
I'm just concentrating on my album before we start working on the Black
Market Militia. I have to get in touch with Tragedy Khadafi. Right now,
everybody is just going strong. I have some people out in VA, Tribes of
Judah. I got my man Crown Prince. He's a very deep brother. He's on MySpace.
I saw the
comment about me doing an album with GZA. We were just talking about that.
We're thinking about that. I think it's time we come together and bring
it back to the way it used to be. We were talking about that over the
last couple of weeks. I think it's time for us to do it. When we get out
to Australia, we'll see what happens. We'll toss around some thoughts.
I think that it's time for us to put some real incredible shit together.
Let's do it.
I saw someone
asking me about the books I read. I've read a lot of history books and
a lot of spiritual books. Now they got movies that I'll be checking out.
I love checking out the movies and stuff like that. That's all a part
to explore the other side of the world this week. Going out to Australia
is going to be dope. I like animals. I definitely want to get over there
and check that out. Other than that, I'm just going to be doing shows
and selling CD's.
I hope you
checked out the Marvin Gaye Here, My Dear album. He was deep. He said
a lot of incredible stuff. He has this song called "God is Love."
He was there. I know the drugs took their toll, but Marvin Gaye is one
of my favorite artists.
I want to
check out the movie Silent Hill. I wanted to see V for Vendetta. Hell
Razah and Nas told me to check out that one.
I also got
"The Prelude to the Offering" out now. You can check that at

up, everyone? I've been on the internet a lot lately. It's a good way
for everyone to get their point across. It's a new way of learning.
I had a great
time last week. I did a show in Texas and I'm going to Australia on the
5th with the GZA. It's my first time going to Australia. You get to learn
a lot about history when you travel, so I do some research before I go
and then I do more when I get there. I want to learn my history. We're
taught differently, so when you actually get over there, you can actually
see how things are.
I saw someone
named No Name on the comment section wanted me to talk about the Horsemen
project. The Horsemen project is definitely going to come. Right now we
just have to get Kurupt. He's been doing the Dogg Pound thing, but it's
definitely going to come. We have songs recorded and we have more in store.
The Horsemen are definitely on my album. That's good. I know we're going
to be on Ras' album. The Horsemen project is going to be something hip-hop
really needs, to bring back that grassroots thing of just crazy emceeing.
Everybody is doing what they do.
said it would be dope if I collaborate with Cormega. I like Cormega. I
think Cormega is dope. That shit is definitely in the works. I always
liked Cormega and I always thought he was nice.
watching a lot of the NBA Playoffs. It's good, but it's too bad for the
Knicks. What's up with them? I think they're genetically created to fail
to keep New York stressed the fuck out.
And why is
New York stressed the fuck out? A lot of stuff started here, in New York,
and everyone got so used to playing one thing. I think that the media
has a lot to do with it. It's our job, it's the DJ's job, it's the people's
job, to push the real hip-hop where it started. New York had played one
type of music all the time, and then they start seeing the South doing
their thing, so New York started following the South. We're not doing
our own thing anymore. We're following.
I like the
Rick Ross Hustling song. It's a true story. It's all good. Get your hustle
on. Songs that are totally wack to me are songs like Laffy Taffy. I remember
rhyming only if you had skills. Now, everybody's doing their own records.
It's a hustle now. Part of hip-hop is rap music. That's like me saying
I'm a DJ, but I can only play classical music and never scratching. If
you're going to be a DJ, you're supposed to be scratching and doing parties.
If anybody can rap and you love them, that's disrespect to rap music.
I don't know if people know how to listen to rap music anymore. I know
when I listen, I listen for quality, flow, voice, and words. That's what
rap is supposed to do. It's supposed to provoke thought in one's mind,
musically. I've been listening to the new Ghost album. I like Ras Kass.
I think he's one of the illest MC's. I listen to 'Bis. I listen to GZA
and Inspectah Deck. I listen to Nas. I listen to all the dudes that are
coming through lyrically.
moving on The Offering. I don't want to throw too much out there, but
somebody told me Koch was looking for a radio song. I couldn't believe
that when I heard that. I was like, "Nah, not Koch." I'm going
to still go up there and see what they're saying. KillahPriest.com is
up and running now so I'm getting a lot of good feedback on that. The
Offering is what it is. Once everybody hears it, they're going to know
what time it is. I don't have a home for it yet, but I do have deals on
the table. I'm ready for it to come out now.
I know last
week I gave you a book to read. This week I've got a CD for you. Pick
up Marvin Gaye's Here, My Dear. That's the first diss album ever. That's
a dope-ass album because he was dissing his ex-wife on there. The whole
album is dedicated to her. Here, My Dear is a dope-ass album that I think
everybody should check out.

Right now, on my mind, I'm just looking at life and how the government
is taking over this country. The people are supposed to be in the hands
of the government. It's "we the people." It's foolish how they're
manipulating everybody. Nobody knows their race or heritage. It's crazy
how they're killing everybody through their politics. That's just mentally
crazy. We have to bring the truth in the music. That's the voice. The
voice of the people depends on what we do with our situation that we're
in, looking at these big corporate people and how they structure America
to be brainwashed through candy-mental music. You can't take a party song
home to listen to. It has its own time. The media has you believing you
can listen to it for twenty-four hours. There's no substance. My movement
is against the phony media that pushes this. I'm not trying to go out
with those dudes.
I think that
everything is planned. Look at the Earth itself. You have the word "plan"
in it and you have "it." "Planet." Everything is planned.
Everybody in the government is working together. That's what I think about
it and it's important for us to put down the truth. As artists, I think
that would be the best situation. Word.
I think it's
ignorant for New York artists to diss Southern music. New York has to
get themselves together first. We have to support each other first before
we tear them down. I like Southern music. I think the beats are incredible.
I think we need to support our own stuff, the real Hip Hop. Not that fake
radio shit. What we do, we ought to take it back to real shit, which is
hypocritical on our behalf. I blame this on a lot of the DJ's and the
media on what they push. I'm not going to lie to them. Some of the music
is so simple.
I think the
media isn't showing me a lot of love because they're really scared. They
know that what I pose is a threat. Anything is a threat that's a great
idea. I offer food for thought. It's easier to poison the people's minds.
It's easier to put any ingredients in food, it doesn't mean it's going
to be good for you. You can put sugar in anything and make it sweet. I
make sure my music is vitamins. I think it's mandatory for all artists
to show a little bit of shine and enlightenment. It's the art of it that
I love. I love Hip Hop and Hip Hop means a lot to me.
My show with
Ghost last week was crazy. I opened up. Ghost let me rock, which is ill.
I can't complain on that. He didn't even have "4th Chamber"
because he didn't know I was coming. We got on stage and knocked it out.
We got on stage and kicked freestyles. You know how that goes. He told
me to kick "Black August." I think Ghost really likes that song.
On that note, it was good.

amped knowing the fans came out and supported. It's a great thing for
me when the fans come out and show love. I just have to give it back.
Before a show, you'll probably catch Priest by himself chilling, or with
somebody talking. Damn, you can't hear that, but that's police sirens.

some different groups coming around now. I'm just getting more focused
on what I have to do. Right now, it's about motivating and building the
relationship with the people. I know exactly what they want to hear. I've
always said I'm a fan of Hip Hop and that's true.
your homework assignment for this week. I think you should all read "Nature
Knows No Color" by JA Rogers. That's about the Dark Ages and Black
people that ruled in Europe. A lot of people don't know about that. It's
in the early 1400's. That's a good book to chill with. And if you ever
get the chance, you should travel as much as you can. And if you can't,
just let your mind travel mentally, or get "The Offering."

Journal Entry #1
up HipHopGame? Aw man, I'm just looking at the whole industry today and
how they're treating music how the radio is treating artists it's
pure garbage. New York has to make a comeback right now. Look at how the
media is destroying rap right now. It's called "rap music."
You can never have too many lyrics or concepts. Hip Hop is one thing,
that's everything, that's DJ'ing, mixing, the way you walk, the way you
talk But rap is a part of Hip Hop. I think the more you get into
it, the more you should be appreciated. The iller you get, people should
respond. The reality, in looking at the media and these DJ's, they're
killing and choking the art form of what it's called. Rap music was appreciated
in the '90's and the '80's, and in the 2000's, it's less appreciated.
when Melle Mel came out with "The Message." He dropped some
jewels in "Beat Street." Look at how rap has evolved since "Children's
Story" by Slick Rick. There's less lyrics and more put into the beat
chilling right now. I'm just looking at the news and listening to what
the fuck is going on with Bush and that whole administration. I've been
keeping up with the current events. They discovered the lost books of
Judas. Check that out. They discovered that Judas was probably not a villain
but he was actually a hero, so they're coming up with new events now.
How that affects the whole situation of things is look at all the other
theories. A lot of truth is going to come out now.
is that politics and Hip Hop should coincide nicely. What you do on the
street is affected by the government. The government puts the drugs on
the streets, make an even bigger profit, and throw the people on the streets
in jail. More youth need to look into getting more political and look
at what Bush is doing. Become your own government and organize something.
Organize your own community in your hood where you can be president. Right
now we have drug kingpins. If you could turn that into something positive,
it could be more effective and get donations from your hood. Use that
money to clean up your hood.
heard of a drug dealer settling down. They don't get chubby and move to
Miami. Those niggas get shot and killed on the spot. Word. Or they're
doing 25-to-life. They're either doing eternal in the tomb or triple-life
in the jail.
Offering" is coming out lovely. It's coming out real great. Word.
I can't wait. "The Offering" is coming out classic. The work
ethic never stopped. Sitting down and writing it out is a masterpiece
in itself. "The Offering" is going through different chambers.
There are so many different flows and chambers in the album. I never went
to the studio when I used to be rhyming in the street. When you put me
in the studio with Rae and Ghost and they're going in the mic booth, I
didn't even want to do nothing there. "The Offering" is from
that experience up to now. That's from me doing "Heavy Mental,"
me doing "Priesthood" to "View From Mesada" to "Black
August" to "Black August: Revisited." Even the Sunz of
Man shit. Everything I came into the game with, I'm leaving with. "The
Offering" is going to be my baby.
I don't know
what label it's coming out on. These labels today are bugging. Everybody
that I play the album for loves it from the get-go. It's a matter of finding
the right deal for it. I'm talking to people. What I really need is marketing
and promotions. I'm not trying to go out there this time with a limited
budget. I'm not trying to hear that I can't get ads. This is "The
Offering." I'm trying to get a good offering. I've spoken to people
at Sony. I've spoken to people at Universal. I've spoken to people at
Koch. I have a lot of people helping me and right now we're trying to
get a good home for it. I'm definitely looking for it to come out in 2006.
I appreciate the love that I'm hearing on HipHopGame and the love that
I'm hearing everywhere, from the youth and everyone.
on my grind. Right now, I'm about to drop this mixtape. It's going to
be crazy. It's going to be a prelude. I'm getting up with 730 and we're
going to kill it. It's going to be crazy. It's going to be unreleased
rare joints, joints from "The Offering," some stuff that's not
going to make the album it's going to be straight Priest. I advise
everyone to get the mixtape. It's going to be like a "Cruicmixtape."
My boy Phenom came through with this crazy beat for the album. The song
is called "Nightfall." It's crazy. People tell me I write too
much crazy, dark shit. I think "Nightfall" is going to be the
I'm doing a show with Ghostface. I plan on going out to Chitown and give
my people out there a little something. Ain't nothing to it but to do
