9th Prince (Born Terrance Hamlin) aka Madman and Iron Finger (adopted his name from the kung-fu movie "Shaolin Prince") is a founding member of the renowned collective Wu-Tang affiliated group Killarmy along side Dom Pachino, Islord, Beretta 9 aka Kinetic, Shogun Assasson, Killasin and super producer 4th Disciple, with 450,000+ cumulative units scanned and brother to Wu-Tang legend and impresario The RZA, has been away for a while but returns with a new album "Prince of New York" which is a reflection of The Wu-Tang Clan's indelible stamp on the development and evolution of hip-hop music and culture.
This album reflects the Wu-Tang's tradition of cutting edge lyricism and soul-inflected beats but this time it gets a shot of adrenaline
with the first time ever widespread release of his second album; Killarmy presents... Prince of New York.
Armed with brash lyrics and a self-proclaimed "Granddaddy" flow, 9th Prince enlists the services of his fellow Killarmy brothers Dom Pachino, Islord, Beretta 9 (Kinetic), along with Trife Da God, Tommy Whispers, Talented Tekitha and more to craft an album already being hailed as the modern day follow-up to the Wu-Tang Clan's classic double platinum debut 36 Chambers.
Including 6 never before heard bonus tracks (featuring an appearance from none other than Wu-Tang's own Masta Killa), "Prince of New York" demonstrates that 9th Prince has cultivated a style with a soul of its own, the successive chapter in the continually evolving Wu-Tang & Killarmy dynasty.
As album drops 11th of November, Wu-International catches up with the reigning prince of New York to find out about the album, Killarmy, Wu-Tang Clan, his time up north, Ol' Dirty Bastard and much more, Enjoy!
