Despite his affiliation with the Wu-Tang Clan, none of its members appear on the album.[11]View from Masada was produced principally by Wiz and Just Blaze.[12]

Exclaim! wrote: “Now trying to mesh his spiritual allusions with party-rocking lyrics, Killah Priest predictably fails to do either very well.”[11] The Hartford Courant deemed the album “an eclectic reflection of the everyday battle between heaven and hell.”[13] The Boston Herald thought that “Priest confuses matters on View From Masada, adopting a part-time gangsta persona that allows him to play both sides of the street in a way that seems cynical, given his previous street-tough idealism.”[14]
