“The Destroyer” Production Notes: From the Making of Killah Priest’s “The 3 Day Theory”

The song “The Destroyer” came about in weird way. Both Kount Fif and I are big fans of Onyx and we were having a discussion about how dope and slept on Sonny Seeza was. At that time we were working on “The Swashbuckler” and had been looking for another artist for the song “Return of the Duck Alert” with RA The Rugged Man. I contacted Sonny and he told me he was available to come down in the next week or so. Plan was Sonny would come down for a couple of days and we would lay down a couple of verses. I got a call about a week later and Sonny was on his way. During the phone conversation he mentioned Killah Priest was coming with him. Sonny and Priest had been friends for years but had never done a song together. Also in the car was Steven King, an MC that Sonny had been working with. Audio and link after the jump…

Sonny got in to town and went right to work. During the whole time Sonny was writing for the tracks, Steven was also writing, we hadn’t asked him to record any verses or even made any mention of it. After Sonny would deliver his verses, Steven would then do his in the control room. We had not heard of Steven before then, but he quickly impressed us with his fast pen and clever punch-lines. Priest would record next and would deliver an aggressive, violent verse that was penned on the back of a UPS Envelope. Steven then shared with us his brutal punch-line riddled offering which we then recorded. In the course of everything going on I had spoken with Philly and now internationally known MC, iCON The Mic King. Mic was in or around town and came through the studio. We played him what we were currently working on for “The Destroyer” track and in a matter of minutes he came up with the hook. Lastly Empuls laid down his unforgettable verse were he states he wishes “Pocahontas would’ve killed John Smith” this line alone melts most of modern MC’s whole verses. Kount Fif and I picked out a boxing sample and the track was done. To us it is a major stand out on “The 3 Day Theory.”
