Brooklyn stand up! Masta Killa was first introduced to the Hip-Hop world on the Wu-Tang Clan smash hit, “Da Mystery Of Chessboxin” in 1993 from the Wu’s classic Platinum debut Enter The 36 Chambers. As an original member of the legendary crew, Masta Killa has been predominantly featured on every Wu-Tang Clan album and has made appearances on every group members solo projects; most notably Raekwon’s Only Built For Cuban Linx, Ghostface’s Supreme Clientele and GZA’s Liquid Swords.
In 2004, Masta Killa released his debut solo-album, No Said Date, which received rave reviews from critics and fans alike. Sticking to the formula the fans loved, No Said Date was the first solo-release by a Wu-Tang Clan member to feature appearances by ALL of his fellow Clansmen.
More then two years after the release of No Said Date, Masta Killa gears up to release his sophomore album, Made In Brooklyn, which will be released on 8-8-06. Once again the album boasts rhymes from each member of the Wu-Tang Clan, a feat not matched sink MK did it himself (and before that on Raekwon’s Cuban Linx in 1996). This time around, Masta Killa has enlisted variety of Hip-Hop notable beatsmiths to create his soundscapes including names like MF Doom, Pete Rock and Bronze Nazareth. Speaking on his new album Masta Killa states “it’s basically the same formula as No Said Date, but with more of a Brooklyn swagger. It’s a piece of me, where I come from and a dedication to the MC’s, producers and the people from the neighborhood.” Diehard Wu-Tang fans beware; another Wu-Banga is on the way!
