Top Customer Reviews
Wordplay, beats, and concepts are unrivaled on this album. Masta Killa is more commonly recognized for verses with gritty tones and a hood mentality, but on No Said Date he successfully demonstrates variety which helps diversify this classic LP. From the laid back "Grab the Mic" to the hypnotic "Digi Warfare" and the grand finale "Masta Killa" the album delivers classic cuts that will be stored forever in the vault with other wu classics. Recognize that Masta Killa holds his weight with ease and that the guest appearances from the entire Wu-Tang Clan aren't there to save this album but to compliment it.
But No Said Date is by no means bad. It's one the best Wu-Tang albums in a long time. Mainly because it actually sounds like the Wu-Tang. Masta Killa really takes it back to 36 Chambers with this album.
Masta chose to stay in-house for production on this cd and it shows. The beats are crazy and every single one is of top-notch quality done by The Rza, 4th Disciple, True Master, and Allah Mathematics.
Masta also chose to stay in-house for his guest appearances, featuring all of the Wu-Tang. And I have to say that there isn't one weak guest on this album. Raekwon, Ghostface, Gza, Inspektah Deck, they all rip it up on the album. Especially Gza and Deck on the track "Silverbacks".
So if you're lookin for a good hip-hop album, or if you're a fan of the Wu-Tang. Ya gotta pick this cd up. Plus I haven't even mentioned the cool and Free dvd that comes with the album. Its got tons of cool footage and audio from Masta and the rest of the Clan. So get get this. NOW!
Masta Killa keeps it in the family with this one, featuring all of the members of the Wu-Tang Clan (though U-God's whatever-it-is doesn't particularly stand out), as well as the usual Killah Priest appearance, and some other Killa Beez. Despite this, Masta Killa has several tracks with just him rapping, which are excellent and show his own ability by himself as an MC.
Some of the best tracks on the album are:
"No Said Date" which is just Masta Killa over an awesome RZA beat.
"Last Drink" which is again Masta Killa by himself over an excellent Mathematics-produced beat.
"D.T.D." showcases the extreme talents of Masta Killa along with Ghostface and Raekwon... another song produced by Mathematics with an excellent beat.
"Old Man" features Ol' Dirty and RZA... Ol' Dirty does his thing which entertains as usual, and RZA and Masta Killa lay down some ill rhymes. This is also produced by RZA.
"School" once again features RZA and is produced by RZA. And although he is not the best rapper in the Wu-Tang Clan, RZA does rip it up in this song, and it's amazing.
"Masta Killa" is the last track on the album and is Masta Killa by himself.Read more ›
But Masta Killa's new album "No Said Date" almost hits that level. This is by no means an instant classic the way "Liquid Swords" was, but this is the best Wu solo in a long time and definately worth a 5-star rating. The beats are straight out of 1995, the lyrics flow with a self-awareness that is completely absent from modern rap and hip-hop.
The decision to stay in-house on this album was absolutely the right call for Masta. The production on the disc is high quality, especially considering it is not a major-label release. Anyone who listens to this will instantly realize how much the Clan members need the RZA and the other Wu producers to succeed. Compare the beats used on this disc (especially on the title tracks, and others like "Grab the Mic" and "Queen") to the beats on "Tical: 0" or (especially) "The Movement" and think how much better those other albums could've been with some solid production work.
Masta also gets solid help from his Wu brothers with guest vocals.Read more ›
