Masta Killa turned some heads in 2004 when he delivered No Said Date. Though Wu alums RZA, Mathematics, and Choco are jettisoned for external producers Pete Rock, MF Doom, and PF Cuttin, it‘s essentially more of the same: good enough to impress Wu devotees, but probably too true to early ‘90s hip-hop for those who’ve moved on. Purists, however, will revel in the bangin’ lead single “Ringing Bells,” and the raw drum track that Nature Sounds’ honcho Dev 1 lays beneath “Brooklyn King.” Even in a year saturated with Wu releases, Made in Brooklyn is definitely worth a few spins.
