California rap ensemble Black Knights of the Northstar were discovered by Wu Tang Clan founder and leader RAZ, becoming the first group from the West Coast to be signed to Wu Tang Records. The group later separated in 2000 into two groups: Black Knights (Crisis, Rugged Monk, Holocaust and Doc Doom) and Northstar (Christ Bearer and Meko The Pharaoh), while still continuing to work closely together over the years. These West Coast Killa Beez have made appearances on some of Wu Tang’s classic RIAA certified Platinum and Gold releases “Wu Tang Killa Beez: The Swarm” and “The Sting”, all of RZA’s Bobby Digital projects, and numerous RZA film soundtracks including Ghost Dog and Afro Samurai. Now, for the first time, they’ve reunited to record their debut album, “Northstar On The Blackest Night” as RZA envisioned when he signed them over 20 years ago. This debut also introduces a new member, West London’s Shaka Amazulu The 7th and features special guest appearances by RZA, Ghostface Killa, Cappadonna, Killarmy and Kurupt. The Black Knights of the Northstar’s highly anticipated reunion is spearheaded by their RZA introduced single/video “Time (Truth I Master Equally)”, which delivers the addictive raw Wu-Tang energy the world got hooked on in the 1990s. The Skarekrow produced number invokes a spiritual-like trance while each word wizard takes turns spitting their righteous spell. The skillfully animated visual imagines a sinister cinema coming to life, jumping out of the silver screen to invade real life. When speaking about “T.I.M.E.” the California collective declared, “Timing is everything. It’s our time. It’s time for the truth.” Listen to “T.I.M.E. (Truth I Master Equally)” below.
