(Video) Killah Priest [ @killahpriest ] - ''The Document''

Killah Priest is one of my favorite emcees of all time....in my top 5....yes I said top 5.....


Longtime Wu affiliate Killah Priest is preparing a brand new project, following July's "The 3 Day Theory". Set for January, the LP is titled "The Psychic World Of Walter Reed".

To get fans ready, Priest just released the album's first offering, a cut called "The Document," in which he details the harsh realities of the world -- corruption and suffering at the hands of a handful of powerful men.

In the Rogue Science Lab-directed clip, Priest spits bars as animated depictions of the Pope, George Bush and Barack Obama take part in pay-offs, murder, and underworld evil. From taking part in cult-like rituals from planned out hits to stealing money from the population ... all for "The Document."

"The Psychic World Of Walter Reed" is due out January 30th, 2012. Visit KillahPriest.com for more info.

"Nuclear Winter represents many things. It represents dark times in our lives, it represents the state of NY hip hop & how I feel about it, & it represents my blueprint on how I think the music should be done going forward into the future. This is my manifesto to all the people that doubted me & the kryptonite to all selfishness. It's a journey from darkness into light, & from bondage & the huge amounts of weight on our shoulders to breaking free and regaining our freedom. Nuclear Winter we're coming to take shine....." - Willie Maze
