When I first listened to this cd after I bought it, all i could think of was, "damn, this is what Method Man's cd should have felt like." Masta Killa, and all the production(Rza, Mathematics, True Master, ETC) made me proud to be a Wu fan once again. This album is not just good because 99.9% of new rap sucks, but because Masta Killa comes into his own with a killer lyrical flow. In most of the tracks, Masta Killa starts out with a nice, steady verse, but he kicks it into a 2nd gear halfway through the song, and you can really feel the intensity and lyrical assasination that Masta Killa is putting on us. This is what I have been looking for in a post-golden rap era album, tight production throughout the cd, with a connection between all of the songs, and an mc who has not sold out. I reccomend this to any and all Wu fans, or to anyone who is tired of the crap on the radio. No Said Date is up there with Tical, Only Built, Liquid Swords, Ironman, and Return to the 36 chambers. The best songs on this cd are the ones produced by the RZA(no said date, school, old man), but some other nice tracks include grab the mic(brock), DTD(mathematics), secret rivals(true master), last drink(mathematics), silverbacks(true master), and masta killa(baby dooks). The production is fantastic because they kept it all in house with Wu-affiliates, and this is what they should be doing on all Wu albums. Go pick up this cd so Masta Killa can get PAID for this masterpiece.
