"Introducing KIllArmy, the militant branch of the Wu-Tang tree. This album was a good introduction of KillArmy. The original plan was to release an album under the Population Clique (now The United Kingdom) collective, which constisted of KillArmy, Sunz Of Man, and Royal Fam. "Wake Up" was initially credited as Population Clique's first single but ended up on KillArmy's album, featuring Sunz Of Man. The other singles ("Wu-Renegades" and "Fair, Love and War") are straight bangers. KillArmy also initially consisted of Staten Island, New York MCs 9th Prince (The RZA's little brother), Killa Sin (Wu-Tang evecutive Oli "Power" Grant's little brother), puerto rican MC Dom Paccino aka P.R. Terrorist, and Islord. Two other members were later added to the group: Baretta 9 and Shogun Assassin, both from Ohio, due to their connection with Wu-Tang producer 4th Disciple. Speaking of 4th, he produced the bulk of this album, showing and proving that he can hang with the best of them. KillArmy MC Islord contributed very little to this album due to the fact that he was incarserated at the time. Guest appearances include Streetlife, Masta Killa, and the aforementioned Sunz Of Man. This album was eagerly anticipated by hip-hop fans at that time due to Wu-Tang's popularity at the time (SILENT WEAPONS... was released a few months after WU-TANG FOREVER). The album quickly went gold, establishing KillArmy's hard-core following (not necessarily Wu fans, though the majority are) across the east coast. A big Rest In Peace shout-out to General Wise, the God whom this album was dedicated to, who happened to be KillArmy's manager. He died a few months before the release of this album, in a shoot-out. In PEACE you rest, General Wise aka Wise God Allah."

"I copped this album the minute it first hit the stores. It's still my nr1 favorite album to date. The mood of this album is incredible. Some fools argue over lack of skill lyrically, but they must honestly not have a clue of what these emcees are about. They bring their lyrics the way they do because it works like a subliminal message that way. Man I had some of their lyrics poppin'in my head after 3 years that got me thinking:"what song did I get that from?",followed by "so that's that lyric, that's what he said!" and Like Islord said:"watch this underrated expert do his work". And he was right, maybe at first he seemed like the worst of the bunch, but after letting it sink in I even have to say his skill is unprecedented and over the years he's become a minor favorite. Pr terrorist and killa sin have easy on-beat flows, which is why most claim them to be the best. This doesn't mean I don't like them, and I certainly think Killa Sin is incredible and dom pachino is da biz too, it's just that they got a more typical and instantly catchy flow, especially dom. Shogun tends to get overlooked, his raw style and voice taps straight into the spinal cord,and he has some of the illest lyrics ever as he spit it on dirty weaponry's "unite to fight" and on fear love&war's "sweathop". 9th prince's style is murderous and cutting like a lumberjack. If you think this guy ain't feeling the flow you don't know jack and need to shut up. Beretta 9 is another one of those underrated mc's, lyrically deep and his flow is like a ninja. They got so underrated because they are simply ahead of time with this album, which is also what makes this is album such a timeless classic.
There isn't a single track on this album that isn't build to perfection, this was 4th disciple's finest hour no doubt.
I guess most that were actually disappointed with this album were expecting to hear something similar to the traditional wu-tang sound but what they failed to notice was that this was just so much better and more lasting at that. All of y'all naysayers just don't have a clue of what this real hiphoptish is all about."

"Alot of people are complaining about "repetitive RZA beats" or "out of sync lyrics". I got news for you, if you wanted that go pick up P. Diddy and call it a day. I swear you wouldnt know hard core ill lyrics if they slapped you in the face. In fact two of the hardest artists in the game today reside right in Killarmy. I could listen to this album 15 times a day with absolutely NO background sound whatsoever. Over most of the album they give a real lesson in how hard lyrics should be."
