Loyalty Is Royalty
American rapper Masta Killa is best known for his involvement in the iconic hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan. The Clan has been hailed as the most influential hip hop of all time and even ranked as one of the greatest groups to ever exist and it’s clear that even when running solo, Masta Killa has still got it.
Loyalty Is Royalty is MK’s fourth solo studio album and took a staggering six years to complete. Comprised of 16 tracks the album is a testament to Masta Killa’s superb lyrical talents as he teams up with other big hitters such as Method Man, Redman, Sean Price, GZA, RZA and Cappadonna to deliver some serious bars. The rhymes are passionate and smart delivered with an effortless ease that can only come with experience. The tone of the album is somewhat nostalgic with boom bap drum beats and twangy guitars it creates a darker atmosphere than some of the more modern hip hop we’re seeing today.
Overall this is an album with star power, it shows that despite the time that’s passed that Masta Killer and the other members of Wu-Tang Clan are still hungry to create quality music.
