Once every so often, the wind blows a legend into your county; someone who still plays the big gigs but sees the value in rocking the up close and personal venues. Last month, Wu Tang’s silent assassin “Masta Killa” passed through our home base of San Diego. Still carrying his precise delivery and the skills that provided him the last spot on the Wu Tang roster, Killa proves life has purpose. Verse after verse he delivers his classic features and joints, makes time for fans and dips to the green room to politic with TheLIEshow in private.
Before the video is finished we felt it would only be right to give you a few gems he dropped on us and intended for you.
Blest-”Without further adieu, I give you Masta Killa and he is gonna tell you what he has been doin’ these past few years”
Masta Killa- “Doin’ what I do, man, keeping it basic, doin’ this music, building this family, just liven life nah mean.”
Blest- “Let’s let the people know how much this Wu Tang affiliation is embedded in your heart?
Masta Killa- “Man, Wu Tang is my family. I’m sayin’. Its always gonna be my family. Its a blessing that I had the talent to add to the cypher. Being a fan and a student of this music at the same time. To be able to give something back, that is real official, is just a blessing to me”
Blest- “How do you remain humble being such a gifted emcee?”
Masta Killa- “Very early in life my Grandmother gave me a jewel, I didn’t know it then, I needed to build my intelligence to understand it better but she said………..
“Grandson, never forget that no matter how high a bird flies, he has to come down to earth to get his food.”
“That really stuck with me. We are all people, Universal people.”
If you haven’t caught on by now this gentleman and monster emcee is focused on delivering a great message, if you choose to listen. All the while continuing to stomp through NY seeing the universe and the power it possesses.
See the video version of this interview in its entirety soon. Keep your eyes on TheLIEshow to see what happens next.

Back from vacation and still on point, we caught up with our brother Ian Crosby as soon as he got home. He dropped by the lab, got a glimpse of Malik’s Whiskey Session and instantly wanted a guitar. Since he spent a lot of his time in the woods up north jammin’ and writing he was more than prepared for the one-take run. The crew grabbed a bottle, struck a set and hit record. For those who know Crosby they are prepared for a gift in some form; but those who don’t will receive more than a surprise when punk rock roots run straight into soul. Keep your ears and eyes on this beast.
Hope you enjoy Whiskey & Water Sessions Vol.2, we did!
