Timeless cuts like "My Life" and "My Hood" with a few others, but also there are a few tracks that are not exactly great material. Tracks like "Heat of the Moment" and "Theme Song" but overall this album is nice considering what hip-hop has become lately.
Priesthood breaks down the basic facts of street life and the struggle of religion. If you wish to elevate your mind and catch a heavy mental of what hip-hop should be more like, then check this album out.
When you check it out, listen to it a few times before you make a decision of how ill this work of art really can be. Return of Masada the Beloved The beats here aren't as gritty as a lotta joints off Heavy Mental, but they're good. Lyrically, Priest has never lost his touch. With one of the best rhyme structures in Hip Hop, K. Personally, I was disappointed that "Places Where Pharoah's Go" recorded in similar fashion to the track "Heavy Mental" is so short compared to it's predecessor.
That fact doesn't really take away from the album, but had it been longer it coulda added something. But yo, Priest shines again, and shows a lotta promise for things to come. Priesthood, at least lyrically if not musically, is one of the best pieces of work in Hip Hop this year. If you don't love lyrics, and aren't inclined to spiritual things, then leave this album alone.

And as if Priest's lyrical power wasn't enough to bring this album home, 4th Disciple probably hooked up his best batch of beats for "Heavy Mental" - not to mention True Master's and Y-Kim's contributions. I remember an article in HipHopConnection back around where they crowned Priest's debut "the best hip-hop album of all time" and while there's no singular dopest LP ever made in my opinion, it's definitely up there.
This is spiritual hip-hop at it's finest and there's a big difference between religion and spirituality. Yesterday I got a six minute snippet reel from a poster at the Philaflava forums featuring a bunch of songs that most likely was recorded for the album but didn't make the final cut.
This gave me the idea to put together a lil' companion piece to my favorite Killa Beez release of all time, especially since there's so much dope material that didn't make the final cut that would be a great diservice for any Priest fan to miss out on. I wrote out a small description for each song on the mix to give you some background info while you're listening. The original " Blessed Are Those " was for the longest supposed to be the one we'd hear on the album instead of the minimalistic, but still very atmospheric and great, remix we now hear on the LP.
For this version underrated producer Y-Kim makes great use of an Al Green sample over the same drums that really beefs up the track. Unfortunately, Green refused sample clearance of the song for the reason of the Killah part of the artists name. According to K.
This mix appeared on Y-Kim's producer compilation "Monster Reborn". Hell Razah.Heavy Mental was the debut album from Killah Priest. He first emerged with the single, B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth), which was included as the final track on GZA's seminal Wu-Tang classic, Liquid Swords/5(20).
