I was introduced to Muja Messiah when I saw him open for GZA's "Liquid
Swords" tour some years ago (two? three?). Expecting so much out of Gary
and getting so much from Muja was a complete letdown and lucky surprise
in equal turns. Muja's wry and lithe stage presence, crux, and flow
haven't yet seemed to propel as far as I remember thinking he'd go (by
now), but next month's release of M-16's
Firstly, the Benzilla
-produced single "Gary Coleman" - which I thought was a little middling compared to his "Paper Planes" send-up, or the piany-lovely "At All Cost [My Economics]" (hear both at his Myspace
). But you be the judge.
