Fresh from the release of the Wu-Tang Clan documentary that premiered on Showtime titled “Wu-Tang: Of Mics & Men,” we get some new Wu-Tang music. A seven track EP drops today and we get this tasty team up with RZA and Ghostface, who are “On That Shit Again.”
It’s been 25 years since Wu-Tang Clan dropped Enter the 36 Chambers and A Tribe Called Quest released Midnight Marauders on November 9th, 1993. To celebrate these classic releases dropping on the same day, DJ Filthy Rich blends instrumentals and vocals from both albums to form “Enter The Marauders.”
“The intent was not to improve on the originals in any way… that would be impossible, as I consider them both to be perfect bodies of work,” Rich says. “Rather, it was about orchestrating a fun concept, and putting a totally new spin on these well-worn classics. The contrast of Wu’s gritty street raps over Tribe’s jazzy production works in a pleasantly unexpected way.”
Yeah, this will get you through the weekend and then some.
DJ Critical Hype comes correct yet again. After blessing us with Chance the Dropout (Chance & Kanye), The DAMN Chronic (Dr. Dre & Kendrick Lamar) or More 9th (Drake & 9th Wonder), Hype delivers an ill mashup of 2 Chainz lyrics and Wu Tang Clan beats on Wu Chainz: 36 Trap Houses. 23 minutes of dopeness for your listening pleasure.
“When A3C approached me about Wu-Chainz, I thought the concept was sick and was instantly curious about how it would sound,” Critical Hype says. “Grinding the project out over the last few months, it became clear pretty quickly 2 Chainz witty southern raps sounded right at home over the incredible RZA/Wu production. I always enjoy the process of blending two different sounds together to create something new – so having the opportunity to do it with a legendary act like Wu-Tang and one of my favorite artists in 2 Chainz has been an amazing experience.”
Forever M.C. and It’s Different keeps things rolling as they team up with Raekwon, Masta Killa, Ghostface Killah and Cappadonna for “Piranhas.”
Things take a turn for the worst when Redman, Inspectah Deck and Mathematics have a body in the trunk in the video for “Lesson Learn’d.”
Redman, Method Man, Raekwon and U-God flex on the remix of “Hood Go Bang” produced by Mathematics.
Method Man gets the spotlight in the videos for “If Time Is Money” and “Hood Go Bang” off of the Wu’s The Saga Continues album. There’s no doubt about it, Meth still has it.
Ghostface Killah, RZA, Cappadonna and DJ Mathematics perform “My Only One” with Steven Latorre on the Tonight Show. I hope you have that new Wu-Tang purchased or else you’re sleeping on something special.
On October 13th, the Wu-Tang Clan will release Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues. To add to the hype, the visuals for the Redman assisted “People Say” have been released as Method Man, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck and Masta Killa drop rhymes over Mathematics production. There’s a quest for what’s inside of a box with a Wu insignia on it throughout the video.
Another joint off of the Wu-Tang Clan’s recently announced The Saga Continues album that finds Reggie Noble alongside Inspectah Deck on the Mathematics produced “Lesson Learn’d.”
