Wu-Tang Clan Affiliate Killah Priest Launches Kickstarter Campaign for New Book
Killah Priest is entering the literary world. The longtime Wu-Tang Clan affiliate has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his book ‘The Psychic World of Walter Reed: The Illuminated Lyrics’ which is tentatively scheduled to be released in the fall.
The book includes 160 pages focusing on the creative process behind Killah Priest’s album of the same name as well as history of the Wu-Tang Clan as told by members such as RZA, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and Inspectah Deck.
“This is something I have spent so long working on, I am grateful to finally be able to give my fans another piece of me outside of just my poetry in song form,” Priest says. “The ‘Illuminated Lyrics’ is for many the first look into the psyche of a true Hip-Hop icon as my Wu-Tang Clan brothers and I embark on a landmark 20 years in music and culture.”
Pledges for ‘Illuminated Lyrics’ can range from as little as $2 to as much as $6500. The packages vary in the content as backers can receive such items as an exclusive EP of lost tracks from the album, posters, autographed Allique boots, promotion of your business/organization on social media or even a personal call from Killah Priest.
