The Buddha Monk. The man which all Wu-heads recognize mainly for his track 'Got's Like Come On Thru' (the original version, which doesn't appear on the album) which is a fair sort of recognition for him as it exhibits his style well.

'The Prophecy' is an album, which basically claims to write the future - Buddha Monk being a Profit. During the album he tells us of things to come as well as including a little 2pac-'Dear-Mama'-wannabe track 'Dedicated.' The album really ranges in terms of style. They're all pretty similar in terms of featuring heavily 'wu-fam' (affiliated Wu-Tang artists) and one chorus singer - ODB. It is a pretty good album as far as things go although some parts do become weird. 'Buddha Monk At The Opera' is an interlude in which he sings like an opera singer about sticking your d*ck in various places. The title track 'The Prophecy' works really well, and tracks like 'Life's A Scheme' and 'Killa From The Villa' make the album that little bit more eclectic (selecting ideas from various sources), however this improves the album. The drawbacks are that some of the tracks just aren't as influential or inspirational as I'd have wished, they have little depth. 'Spark Somebody Up' is an example of this. The main flaw with 'Spark Somebody Up' is that it is edited. I don't mind about censorship provided you can't tell that it has been censored, but here you can. The original says "You're gonna make me f*ck somebody up" but the new, edited version says "You're gonna make me SPARK somebody up," Buddha Monk shouts "Spark" which spoils it. Overall quite a good wu-related album. On it, it states that it's the first of many Br'Klyn Zoo, Manchuz, D.R.U.G.S. albums to come.
