Seems like December is Wu-Tang’s month… first Inspectah Deck releases his mixtape entitled ‘Cynthia’s Son’, a compilation of Deck’s tracks over the course of his career with some new tracks inspired my his mother. Wu-Tang formed like Voltron to ensure A Better Tomorrow, one week later, the masked avenger known as Ghostface Killah returns after 36 Seasons to clean up Stapleton Projects, and now the First Lady of Hell Razah unleashes her final project from the Hell Razah Music Inc/Ghetto Govt Officials (HRMI) label.
Christian Gospel inspired Hip Hop is a hard market to turn heads. People walk past artists rhyming for the most high in city centres without batting an eyelid or even dropping a dime in the basket. If it’s not DMX on the mic, most hip hop heads don’t wanna know. Queen The Prophet wants to help change that. Under the guidance of the Wu-Tang Clan & Sunz of Man, QTP sees victory at her end of the tunnel.
Her final project under this label is not an end, rather a new beginning. ‘The First Lady, Vol 1’ hosted by DJ Flipcyide boasts guest appearances from Judah Priest, George Yung, Anthony Hamilton, Yung Razah, Hell Razah himself and more. Production credits go to Brandon Heat, Mackin Beats, Miverson and more.
Some highlights on the mixtape include ‘Samurai Jack Freestyle’, Where QTP goes in lyrically sword swinging like Mortal Kombat… In ‘Lois & Clark’, QTP & George Yung become a tag team over a frantic beat usually dismissed by hip hop heads, but their ferocious super heroic delivery is undeniable. Trust in Anthony Hamilton to bring that zoning out flava in ‘Ain’t Nobody’…
QTP has a unique way of keeping her music current to the young fans while spreading the good word… letting them know the true meaning of the word S.W.A.G. in Black Dragon Rose, and for those Wu-Tang Fans who love that Wu-Tang sound, she visits that chamber along with Hell Razah in the epic ‘Keeper of The Flame’.
