The 1st Rhyme Masta Killa Ever Wrote Was For Wu-Tang Clan’s 36 Chambers (Video)
Masta Killa made a last minute debut on a Rap classic: Wu-Tang Clan’s Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). What Heads may not realize is that was the Brooklyn, New York MC’s first rhyme and his first time in the studio. Having described himself as the “little brother” within the Clan, Jamel Irief is in fact, an O.G. He was a B-Boy since the 1980s when he grew up within an earshot of Big Daddy Kane, and experienced lunchroom battles at Jesse Owens High School P.S. 26 in BK. In the years since, he released a standout album in 2004’s No Said Date, rhymed on multiple Wu singles, and put in work with Public Enemy, Afu-Ra, and R.A. The Rugged Man. Long before he was a PETA-endorsed vegan, teenaged Killa was flipping Big Macs and Egg McMuffins at McD’s, alongside Jeru The Damaja. There is so much more to a story that was Made In Brooklyn.
Preparing for next month’s Loyalty Is Royalty, Ambrosia For Heads is proud to present the “Now You See Me” version of the “OGs Told Me” single by Masta Killa, featuring Boy Backs and Wu affiliate Moe-Roc. Produced by Dame Grease, this song shows that Killa is the O.G., and he may always have been.
