GZA Speaks: The Lost Art of Lyricism

Music is forever changing. Hip-hop is not going to be what it was 15 or 20 years ago. Everything changes. There are different sounds, different dances. But at the end of the day, to me it’s all about the lyrics.

Hip-hop started with street poets with great lyrical skills, and that’s what hip-hop has always been about for me. If you hear people talking about the Golden Era of rap they’re usually talking about the early-Wu Tang Clan era. And then Nas and Biggie and so on. But for me it goes back to the 80s — 1986 to 1989.

Raekwon Chefed Up a Pair of "Wu-Tang" New Balances

Raekwon once professed that, "On the Island they tried to challenge God for the New Bals," and he just customized a pair of 574s that live up to that standard.

Rae, one of the cornerstones of the Wu-Tang Clan, was invited by New Balance recently to "get a sneak peak at upcoming styles and to pick up some custom NB1s," according to the brand's Twitter account. The result was a pair of black-and-yellow 574s, that were Made in USA and all too dope.
It's a far cry from an actual collaboration between the two entities, but they serve as an inspiration from anyone looking to make their own pair, which can be done here.

Method Man Dishes on 50 Cent's Bankruptcy and Jay-Z & Solange's Elevator Incident - WWHL

Method Man dishes on his celeb pot-smoking friends, (SPOILER ALERT: Mike Tyson and Snoop Dogg) whether he thinks 50 Cent is actually broke/bankrupt, and his take on Jay-Z and Solange's Elevator incident in this round of Plead the Fifth?

"Watch What Happens" as Bravo Andy Cohen interviews today's hottest celebrities. (This episode features Method Man and John Cena).

**UPDATE PART 1 & 2** Bronson Apologizes

Earlier this month Bronson appeared on ESPN's SportsNation and appeared to take a shot at the Wu Tang Clan legend.

“I think it’s indifferent at this point. People compare Coke and Pepsi. People compare everything. No matter what, you’re going to get a comparison to something. I’m just glad it’s one of the greats," Bronson said initially, before starting to big himself up. "He’s not rapping like this no more.”

Uh, oh!
Ghostface responded Monday, July 20, by posting a YouTube video, where he blacks out on Action. (Check out the video POSTED YESTERDAY here on WuDisciples )

Action apparently saw the video and responded with an apology via Twitter.

**UPDATE 2**

Tensions were high yesterday between Ghostface Killah and Action Bronson after GFK released a fiery video where he dissed and threatened Bam Bam for throwing shots at him earlier in the month. Once the video hit the net, Bronson took to Twitter to publicly apologize to Ghostface for what he said, and admitted that he was wrong in the situation.

Well, Ghostface isn't having anything to do with that apology, and he's making sure people know it, as he flat out told Revolt last night that he wasn't accepting the apology from Bronson. So, while Bronson probably just wants this situation to go away, it appears that Ghostface is letting it play out as long as he can. Check out the short video HERE [via REVOLT].

Ghostface Killah To Action Bronson: "You Have To Learn To Watch What You Say"

Action Bronson has often been compared to Ghostface Killah throughout his career, and while GFK has previously said that even he has confused the two, they've always shown a mutual respect for each other. Now, after Bronson took a few slight shots at Ghostface during an ESPN appearance earlier this month, it appears that Ghostface is fed up with the situation, and has released a wild video calling out Bronson.

In the video, which you can watch above, Ghostface directly goes at Bam Bam, while calling him out for sounding like him and saying that he has to learn to watch what he says about people. Ghostface then threatened Action, while saying that he has people who will commit acts of violence all around the country—and for free, too. "I know the tour schedule, I know the tour schedule, breh. Just keep my name out your fucking mouth," Ghostface said. "This fat, funky ass n***a is a fraud. I called this n***a, right. The day I heard that shit, and I checked his ass," Ghostface continued. This situation is probably going to get worse before it gets better, so stay tuned.

ODB tribute by B. Dolan

This ODB tribute by B. Dolan borrows the style and format of Bob Dylan's "Who Killed Davey Moore?" to examine the brilliant, controversial and tragic arc of Russell Jones (AKA Old Dirty Bastard.) The repeated question of the song's chorus demands an answer, though the verses suggest there might be enough blame for all of us to share.

This footage was taken from a performance in Hull, UK (October, 2013) when the venue blew a fuse halfway through B. Dolan's first song. In an attempt to appease a room of 500 restless fans, Dolan switched gears and gave spoken word performance of a new song, "Who Killed Russell Jones?" A photographer in the front row named Carl Spring switched his camera to 'video' mode and recorded this footage, which was then edited and animated by motion designer Alex Dobbin.

B. Dolan's "KILL THE WOLF" droped July 10, 2015:
