Killah Priest - The 3 Day Theory (2010)

Killah Priest finally did the best thing possible and got with a producer that doesn't make one good track and then a bunch of boring ones. Priest has always been one of the best writers in hip hop and now he has an excellent backdrop to convey those raps. I personally think most of the guest verses suck on here (especially Copywrite and Canibus) but for the most part Killah Priest demands most of the focus.

1. Look at Life
2. Shadows
3. Betrayal featuring Cappadonna
4. Brolic featuring Empuls
5. Priest History
6. Fire Reign featuring Copywrite and Jakki Da Moto Mouth
