Grimey at a Glitterey Time
By 1997 Wu Tang clan was getting pretty a little bit lame. Wu-Tang Forever was shamefully promoted with all kinds of cornball gimmicks (If you got your parents permission, you could call 1-900 numbers with pre-recorded messages from each member! Just like N'Sync!). They were still making good music, but I found it hard to listen to a lot of their shit at the time with all the frat boy types wearing Wu-Wear etc. etc. etc. The guys in Killa Army were lyrically inferior, but the beats by 4th Disciple were ridiculous, and you werenât going to see Killa Sin doing a cameo on some UPN sitcom. At the time Killa Army was filling a void for me.
