Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Dipset, Slick Rick Rock Classics


Here's a strange sentence: something called The Red Bull Music Academy spent five days celebrating landmark hip-hop albums by organizing workshops and public talks in each of the five boroughs. Each night culminated with a live run-through of the classic album in question.

If the idea of an energy drink buying hip-hop cred by organizing a workshop sounds a bit...odd...it should be noted that the five albums in question are Slick Rick's 1988 album The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, Black Moon’s Enta Da Stage from 1993, Wu-Tang Clan's ‘Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers),’ also from 1993, Mobb Deep's The Infamous from 1995 and Dipset’s Diplomatic Immunity from 2003. Considering that entire college courses...no...entire universities could be devoted to the teachings of 36 Chambers, this Academy can be commended for its selections.

You can watch a highlights video from the event above. Could probably use more question and answer sessions devoted to Cam'ron wardrobe decisions.

Soul - Words of wisdom #2 from The RZA (“The Tao of Wu)

Enter Canada: Wu-Tang Clan come north of the border

There’s a half-smoked joint on an American passport at the Yonge Street headquarters of Raekwon the Chef’s new Canadian office. Raekwon, one of the founding members of the Wu-Tang Clan, hip hop pioneers from rap’s golden age, is launching Ice H20 Records, and he’s smoking to christen the new digs.

“We grew up thinking about Canada like there’s bears up there, log cabins, but it’s not like that. Toronto’s a real city and they respect people who understand the streets and understand the business,” says Raekwon (a.k.a. Corey Woods), an artist whose combined record sales near 10 million albums. “This isn’t just about Toronto, but everywhere in Canada. It’s another industry up here and we want to be the ones to say we’re part of building that s–t. I’m planting the flag.”

Wu-Tang first burst onto the music scene in 1993 with their groundbreaking album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Arranged by RZA, a producer who has worked with everyone from Kanye West to Quentin Tarantino, the nine-member group was designed to spark individual solo careers for its artists. Today, one of its most popular members is Ghostface Killah, a musician currently playing 20 dates across Canada, from Toronto to Victoria.

“On the way in, they hit me up real quick – they got me out of the car, frisked me … they didn’t handcuff me, though, they just searched me, put me in a room and did all that dumb s–t,” says Ghostface, who we reached immediately after crossing the Canadian border. The artist, whose criminal record kept him out of the country on previous Wu-Tang tours, says he supports Raekwon’s new label, and misses touring with his band.

“One time me and Rae had a fire extinguisher and we went to Meth’s room and smoked him out,” he says, adding that Method Man was promoting his first album Tical at the time, and wearing his hair in a giant Afro. “He came out; he had his hair snow white, his face snow white and he says, ‘You all play too much.’ We had a lot of good times.”

Of course, there’s no talk of the good times without mention of the bad, and Ghostface says he still misses the deceased Wu-Tang rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard. “He was a real key element to what we had — it’s like if you lose your leg, you don’t stand the same,” Ghostface says. “I miss the realness about him. Sometimes I feel like a boxer losing one of his hands.”

Currently, the members of Wu-Tang are involved in a variety of projects. In addition to music, RZA recently released a line of headphones and will act opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson in Django Unchained, the new Tarantino film, while GZA will lecture on creativity at Harvard Dec. 1.

Sitting in his Yonge Street corner office, his eyes as glassy as the condominiums spotting Toronto’s downtown skyline, Raekwon says the Wu-Tang design is unfurling exactly according to plan.

“You can be thirsty and take whatever you see on top or you can be a real cool G and do it better on your own, and that’s Wu-Tang,” says Raekwon, who envisions a big commemorative tour next year to celebrate the group’s 20 years. “Don’t get it twisted, we still form like Voltron. You see the rings on these fingers? You don’t get that from taking a walk in the park.”

Ghostface Killah plays Toronto Dec. 2, Calgary Dec. 8 and Edmonton Dec. 9. For the latest on Raekwon the Chef’s label Ice H20, visit nohandouts.net.

The RZA's Top 5 MC's


Jadakiss: “Jadakiss rhymes…like his catch phrases even from years ago with the LOX, he rhymes like he has the experience of a father, like a grown man nah mean? He remind me of somebody that got all the wisdom from all the older cats while he was young and everything he is spitting is like it has the older cat mentality, like a Grand Puba or something, but at a young age. Jadakiss, he doesn’t play with that mic yo.”


Nas: “The early Nas, the first three albums of Nas yo, nah mean. I don’t think too many solo MCs will ever surpass the creativity, ideas and individualization that he put inside his lyrics and songs. Two of the best rhymes I thought written was when he wrote the song ‘One Love’ to his man in jail. You look at Eminem’s ‘Stan,’ that’s ‘One Love.’ That was the inspiration of a man sitting here writing a letter to his man in jail.

Then you take a look at him writing his song [about the gun] ‘I Gave You Power’; describing the tech feeling this way, the rusty gun…taking the individualization of a gun describing. The only other MC doing that was the GZA where he took on the labels and made one meaning a whole ‘nother meaning.”


Big Daddy Kane: “Big Daddy Kane was the one of the first MCs with swagger. In the old days you always used to argue who was better Big Daddy Kane, Rakim or Kool G Rap. But the reason why Big Daddy Kane I think you know was even in that category and some people would say was because his swagger was an MCs swagger. This fuckin ese had the Brooklyn aggressiveness, and yet he still has all the girls on him and he still had hardcore styles. You know his first rhyme when he came out like, “It’s the Kane in the flesh of course I’m fresh, You thought I was rotten, beg your pardon,” when he came with that [‘Just Rhymin’ With Biz’] that shocked almost every MC in New York.

Even to this day when I worked with him, he still is a ice cold ass muthafucker. I always felt like Slick Rick and Snoop Dogg are two of the ice coldest MCs ever because of their voices, they styles. But when I was hanging with Kane, I was like, ‘Naw, you up in there not only as being a dope lyricist and dope MC, but as also one of the ice coldest muthafucker G,’ he really is a unique individual.”


Kool G Rap: “G Rap is the father of drug Rap yo. Off course you know I think Raekwon and Ghostface bought it to our generation and took it to a hands on thing cause that’s where we came from. But G Rap’s Road to the Riches, Wanted Dead or Alive, when he had that lyric, “Crack head searching a dead man’s pocket,” they put you right on the block with that one. Or take his lyrics off ‘The Symphony’ which at that time Kane was the hottest rapper but G Rap stole that song.:


Wu-Tang Clan (GZA, Raekwon & Ghostface): “Well to me, and this is just my personal opinion, no other MC is better than GZA. Two reasons; first of all look at what he spawned. He spawned some of the other best MCs in the world. So that shows his talent was so strong that he taught all of us. Some people put Method Man in their top 50 emcees and he’s a product of the GZA. If you take that song “Fame” where he says, ‘Police Sean Comb through the evidence and Robert Diggs the beat,’ nahmean, if you take that lyric alone where he takes all the names of different celebrities and [makes a] whole story out of it. He did it with ‘Labels,’ it’s a little trademark he does on every album.

Back in the days he was signed to Cold Chillin’ and Kane was like he thought I was GZA, cause he didn’t know my face or whatever, and was looking to battle this nigga cause he knew that the nigga was one of the dope MCs out there and this is what Kane said when we was in the studio. But the GZA yo, his words, his ideas and poetry of his sentences to me makes him one of the best. I am going to give you an example from “Killa Hils 10304” from the Liquid Swords album. “Restaurants on a stake-out so order the food to take out, chaos outside a spark steakhouse, Maintain the power, I feel the deal’s gone sour, N***a Mr. Wedding, late a fuckin half hour and his man who bought land from Tony Starks, while he was contractin bricklayin jobs in city parks, he’s a loan shark, bitches raise a grand to a finger, in a garment that’s stretched, got it sewn like Singer.” Some artist rap four rhymes or four lines most just right lyrics cause they are looking for punch lines.

Raekwon; s**t it took years to figure out what Raekwon was saying. He bought the most slang to the Rap game out of anybody. He is like a slang therapist and if you listen to his lyrics it’s like slang on top of slang. First “politic ditto” that not a catch phrase, it is now. “Africans robbing n****s up in yellow cabs, waving their arms musty like Arabs.” [laughs] It’s like this n***a is crazy; you know the back of a cab be funky… He made it make sense. Back then people was making all there rhymes with “like,” “like,” “like,” but he wasn’t using “like.”

Then if you go to Ghost; to me I just quote what Quentin Tarrentino said to me. He said there are two favorite writers in music from all the writers he listens to , Bob Dylan and Ghostface Killah. Ghost, one of the lines I be using is, “I got to f**k something tonight if not I’m f**king my girl.” He got lines after lines I think he described the street like Nas did it one way that was crazy but Ghost you could tell was not talking from third party experience. Like a lot of MCs tell from they man’s experience, nah, Ghost was the man that did it, saw and could write about it in a way that make you feel like you are doing it.

People didn’t even think Ghost was good at first cause he didn’t get a chance to shine on 36 Chambers, but once he did Cuban Linx… he never turned back. Ghost used to have a lot of headaches and s**t and once he finished the Cuban Linx… album the headaches kinda went away—of course he had a few medical things he had to deal with but I remember Dirty said, “Yo G, you f**king was busting your brain God. In one to two years you developed ten years of talent.” Cause at one point Ghost looked at Dirty as being iller. But [Ghost] was going so hard to make the rhymes to tell his life and tell his story through these rhymes. He used a lot of “likes,” but his “likes” was unorthodox; naming foods and all that s**t. [“Apollo Kids”]”


That’s my top five right there, not to mention Inspector Deck. Inspector Deck is one of the most under rated MCs out of all MCs if you take his verse from “Triumph” alone G. That’s got to be in the top twenty verses ever written!

Raekwon Upcoming New EP "Dope On The Table" Produced by Andrew Kelley



A standout track off ‘09 Wu-Tang compilation Chamber Music, Ill Figures found Raekwon sharing the mic with M.O.P. and Kool G Rap. Today, the star-studded banger gets a production makeover courtesy of Andrew Kelley, the beatsmith who was involved in both “Chamber Music” projects. Part of a never-completed mixtape project created in conjunction with the Chef’s management,this freshly-released remix finds Kelley trading Fizzy Womack and Josh Werner‘s boom-bap boardwork for something a touch more aggressive, centering his bass-led groove around a sample from dancehall hitmaker Yellowman’s Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt (also famously flipped by Eazy-E). The result is a laid-back yet driving revamp that does ample justice to the original. Here’s what the man himself had to say about his remix: “ It’s just a nod to one of my favorite Eazy-E records of all time.

Originally it had 3 verses from Raekwon on it that his management gave me, but I scrapped that version in favor of having M.O.P. & G Rap on it. Its just a different take on an already bangin’ track. Enjoy.”

Andrew Kelley’s and Raekwon’s “Dope on the Table” tape will be released as a Booth-exclusive, seven-song EP on December 1. In the meantime you can already check out the remix here: http://www.djbooth.net/index/tracks/radio/raekwon-ill-figures-rmx/ ”

Method Man Movie "The Mortician" Will Be Released On Valentine’s Day 2012

The Mortician will hit DVD and OnDemand next year.



Method Man has come a long way from his early days of making his name with the Wu-Tang Clan. The Staten Island emcee has appeared in more than a dozen movies since his first showing (1997’s One Eight Seven), and his next film, The Mortician, adds another starring role to his résumé. In the film, Meth plays the titular character, a lonely mortician in a bleak future world who finds a measure of joy in helping others say goodbye to their loved ones. His routine is disrupted when he encounters a boy is running from his father, a local crime boss.

The film, which was written and directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts, showed at several film festivals this year, including New Orleans Film Festival, Berlinale Berlin Film Festival, German Fantasy Fest and Sitges Film Festival. It didn’t secure theater distribution, but you can catch Method Man’s performance OnDemand and on DVD.

Wu Wednesday Exclusive: RZA Featuring Lil Chuuch - Anotha Moment in Chuuch


ANOTHA MOMENT IN CHUUUCH by RZAWU

Raekwon & Masta Killa Speak On The Significance Of "Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)

Nearly 20 years after its release, Raekwon and Masta Killa speak on the importance of "Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)."

Although to some it may seem like it’s only been a handful of years since Wu-Tang’s 1993 album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) was released the album is now nearing its 20th anniversary. Despite having been released nearly two decades ago Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) remains one of Hip Hop’s most praised albums.

NBC New York recently caught up with both Raekwon and Masta Killa to speak on the significance of Wu-Tang’s iconic debut album.

“I think that album has been so much defined as a great album because of the experience we all went through at that time of making it, you know. Like I said you dealing with eight legends that was legends even in the street as far as the way that they lived, the way that they had they respect in the neighborhood, and of course they craft on being writers and emcee’s,” Raekwon explained. “So when we made that album we broke the mold. We came, we brung a new sound to the table. We inspired so many different people to change they lives in a great way to be self-preserved as a man or as a woman out in this big world. We just showed everybody that dreams can come true. They can start from the bottom up. And that album was just the beginning of greatness.”

Masta Killa echoed Raekwon’s sentiment in regards to the importance of Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) by adding that their debut album played a major role in bringing the energy back to Hip Hop at that particular time.

“I think that album is a classic. I think that album right there put a mark in Hip Hop that was missing. It’s always about filling a void,” said Masta Killa. “Whenever you can fill the void it’s gonna be special. Well, Hip Hop it needed a kick start and I think we was a part of that kick start. That kind of brung the energy back up. Because I know for me, for a minute, in Hip Hop I had stopped listening to it. I went reggae because it still had that vintage vibe of rawness. Until my brothers came and we brung back that vintage raw vibe that came from the streets.”

The Making of RZA aka Bobby Digital Presents Northstar


As Naratted by ChristBearer (Northstar) For Wu-International


There is a whole album of songs that we and RZA THE GREAT wanted for this album but the execs over at Koch was like no, no, no so we put it out our selves several times :0) and called it Northstar presents West Coast Killa Beez which was first called Underground Sh*t az a lot of fans know Warcloud was all over that album being that at the time he had left Black Knight over creative differences even though they were still cool and working together and he was mainly riding wit us but when Koch said they wanted us to record it in LA we did just that to make a long story short, a lot changed when we went back to re-record the album.

Kinetic, Pachino and Ninth got involved because they knew we needed the support, same wit everybody else from Trife to Freemurder, Mathematics, Suga Bang Bang, Solomon Childs, Krymelife, The Knigths etc all family, Masta Killa and Dirty (ODB RIP) was supposed to get on but due to miscommunication it never happened, Masta Killah even had a verse that I never got to hear for Red Rum.

All and All it was received great on the underground and it even got great write ups in almost every major hip hop mag you can name Vive, The Source, Double XL, etc yet the label and RZA THE GREAT could not see eye to eye and they wanted the album NOW! RZA THE GREAT wanted what he wanted so I must admit that between me and Alan Grumblat over there at Koch we did some gangster yet junky shit when RZA was out of town to get the masters for press cuzz I wanted that album out as bad as them on the East, North, West and Central Long Beach city!!! :0) yet RZA THE GREAT did some gangster shit too and cut the tour short and kept the video money, and changed the title from The RZA presents to Bobby Digital presents thats why you saw the first covers were almost different :0) so there it is.. may it reign for ever and a day Bobby Digital presents according to CHRIST BEARER THE GREAT;0)

Raekwon Brings H2O Label to Canada with New Toronto Office, Promises Cuban Linx III in 2012

Earlier this year, we reported that Wu-Tang legend Raekwon had signed Toronto rapper JD Era to his new Ice H2O label. The Canadian love doesn't end there, though, as Rae has expanded his label operations with a Toronto office.

As Raekwon's publicist has informed us, the rapper has set up an office at the Yonge/Bloor area of Toronto at 619 Yonge St., with plans to sign more Canadian artists and help bring them to a worldwide audience. To show he's serious about making Toronto his home base, Raekwon has even bought a condo in the city.

Aside from more material from JD Era, Raekwon is planning to release Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... Pt. III on the Ice H2O imprint. According to Rae's rep, the album will be available in 2012.

Stay tuned for more info on the label and the move in an upcoming Exclaim! interview with Raekwon.

What museum technologists can learn from the Wu-Tang Clan


For those of you that made it to Atlanta, I did a brief presentation at MCN2011 about collaboration to create digital interactive exhibits. Some people noted that my presentation contained references to the hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan. Why the Wu? I choose them because they are an extraordinary example of the benefits of working on projects as a team. Here are seven tips from the Wu-Tang way of working that we can learn from.

You Gotta Have a Crew
Wu-Tang clan is made up of eight rappers (nine before the death of ODB). When you have this many collaborators in one group, you have lots of creative minds working together to reach the same goal. Having a team of people work on a project means you have better and faster results because the responsibility is shared. However…

There Must Be A Strong Leader
In Wu-Tang, RZA runs the show. Sure, there are a lot of strong personalities contributing to the product, but RZA chooses the direction they go, and he has final say. On technology projects, someone has to take responsibility for setting the goals to reach. Committee doesn’t make great projects. Have a leader, have a vision, and take the expertise of each group member and put it where it can enrich the whole.

C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me)
Maybe not all of you are familiar with the term, but it’s applicable to all of our work. Technology projects are expensive. The costs of the devices and the hours of labor to develop and implement them add up quickly. Focus on the outcomes, divide labor between the members of the group, and have deadlines for each project.

Work With What You Have
The first few Wu-Tang albums sound like they were recorded in a basement. That’s because they were recorded in RZA’s basement. You have to use what’s available to you, and you have to maximize that to your advantage. It’s not going to be perfect, but if you are doing something original that has engaging content, most of your audience won’t mind.

Have A Network
Wu-Tang is not just a group of rappers, they are also collaborators with a number of other groups. Their willingness to share what they learned and their success has opened doors for other artists. Your institution can’t work in a void. Find other organizations to share knowledge and information with. Everyone benefits.

Innovate, Don’t Recreate
Wu-Tang is influential because they took their interests, 60′s and 70′s kung-fu cinema, and put it in the framework of hip-hop music. They didn’t reinvent the genre, just spun it in a way that highlighted their strengths. You don’t have to create something brand new for your museum. Take what you have available to you and put your mark on it.

On 11/13 Please tribute to our lost Wu-Tang Brother, Mr Russell Jones aka Ol Dirty Bastard on by posting his photo on your social network pages, post his videos and stories you may have concerning him, and call and email your local Radio and Video shows and ask them to pay tribute to the man that brought "Keeping it Real" to life.


I became friends with Russell Jones then known as Ason Unique late in 1991 after meeting him through RZA. I worked with him for Wu-Tang, and also for Elektra on his first album. I never got the chance to link up with ODB after he got out of Jail since we had lost touch during that time, I was going to see him ,but he passed away a day before I was to reunite with him. I miss him, it was hard to think of the world without Russell Jones. I remember rolling with him shortly after he had been shot years ago, for all of the things he went through, he seemed larger than life.

Many of you may never of had the chance to meet Russell Jones, he was the Ol Dirty Bastard....what you saw live was how he lived his life. He was one of the most giving artists I know, rolling with him was always an adventure.... I remember @ one college show, he washed his socks in the sink, then tried to dry them in an oven that was in the area they had for us (note to you all....it doesn't work...all you get is burnt socks LOL!). He was one of the realest people I've had the pleasure of knowing and calling a friend. He was original in style and spoke his mind ( as many of you saw in the Grammy's LOL!), and one of Hip Hop's most memorable MC's

Back in 2007 on MySpace I started a campaign to get Radio Stations and Video Shows all over the World to pay ODB the respect he deserves on the anniversary of his death on Nov 13, 2004.

It's a shame when each year stations play tributes to Biggie and Pac on the anniversaries of their deaths ,but show no love to ODB. It's wrong since ODB always showed Radio and Video Shows love when he was in each Market. They don't give a damn about artists unless it benefits them, so we need you the listeners to show them that ODB still matters to you !


Thanks,

"G" (the Promoter)

Ol' Dirty Bastard - 'Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version (DELUXE RE-ISSUE) (WALLET + ID CARD + POSTER + STICKER)'


Drops Tuesday, November 22, 2011

It's safe to say that hip-hop has never seen an album like Ol' Dirty Bastard's 1995 solo debut Return to the 36 Chambers. The brief glimpses of ODB's unhinged genius provided by Wu-Tang Clan's landmark Enter the Wu-Tang album two years earlier were begging to be expanded on to a larger canvas, and, with RZA guiding production, the album promised to give Dirty the creative license to make one of the most bizarre, entertaining and original LPs in hip-hop history. With his raspy, drunken flow and dark sense of humor, Dirty fearlessly attacks from all angles, throwing himself fearlessly into punchy rhyme attacks ("Damage," with GZA), drugged-out party jams (the monster singles "Brooklyn Zoo" and "Shimmy Shimmy Ya") and bizarre, grimly hilarious fantasies of sex and violence ("Don't U Know" and the R&B-tinged "Sweet Sugar Pie"). Backed by RZA's appropriately gritty, dissonant beats and appearances from the Clan, Return became an instant hit, selling over 1 million copies and earning a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album in 1996. The album stands as a high water mark in the Wu-Tang Clan's collective creative output and was selected as one of the Best 100 Rap Albums by The Source magazine in 1998. In honoring the legacy of one of hip-hop's most innovative releases, Get On Down is proud to present this incredible and unique special edition of Ol' Dirty Bastard's Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version on double CD which contains the complete original album, remastered for optimal sound quality, plus a 13-track second disc featuring remixes, a capellas, instrumentals and rarities from the Return to the 36 Chambers sessions. The two-disc set comes packaged in a deluxe bill fold wallet, designed especially for this release, which includes a reproduction of the laminated food stamp card featured on the album's iconic cover art. Also included are a vintage "On Tour" poster, promotion sticker, extended artwork and detailed liner notes.

Raekwon: "Chupacabra" Ft Capone-N-Noreaga


New song from Raekwon's upcoming Mixtape as announced early on this blog, Planned to drop the 25th of November. Free download from the mixtape featuring CNN

Method Man & RedMan Working on Blackout 3

Method Man and Redman have been rap running buddies for over a decade, and the two MCs have no plans of slowing down. In a recent interview with Montreality, Redman says he and Meth are currently working on both movie and music collaborations.

“Red and Meth is opening their own video company, production company rather. We wanna call it Blunt Brothers Cinema," he said in a sit-down with Montreality. Though the name isn't final, Red said the company will produce a new Red and Meth vehicle in the same vein as the How High movies.

“Doing How High 2 the company Universal owns that name; they own the characters in the movie. So that means we can’t take How High to another company and use them characters…So what we gonna do is probably work on shooting our own movie. Call it something else. It will be marijuana related.”

In addition to the film project, Redman said he and his old partner in rhyme were working on a third entry to their fan-favorite Blackout! album series.

"Blackout! 3, Red and Meth, we coming. We coming with an album, Blackout! 3," he said. "We don’t know when it’s gonna drop, but we’re gonna try and put a single out next year."

The "Let's Get Dirty" rapper also said he was prepping a sequel to his 1997 album Muddy Waters.

Wu-Tang Clan – Mystagogue Vol. 1 (Rare Slap Magazine Mix)


Since posting part 2 of this exclusive and rare find, had to dig deep to find vol. 1 somewhere online, this was supposedly included as a bonus with the first handful of issues of an old skate magazin sometime between 1996 and 1998. Ripped from the original cassette, this contains a seamless, consistent mix of various Wu-Tang material, arranged and sequenced by the RZA himself. Some of the material, assuming this was actually distributed in '96, was unreleased at the time.
