Being the eldest son of U-God from the legendary Wu-tang clan iNTeLL never fails to deliver hard bars and beats, baked in the oven at 450 degrees, then laced with a topping of social awareness and intelligence. iNTeLL was featured on Method Man's latest Album The Meth Lab and his verse definitely stacks up there with the veterans. This young Lord has put out a handful of Mixtapes & EP's, some with Wu-Tang flavor and some with his own style. However, one thing remains clear this artist is not to be slept on.
When Wu-Tang Clan emerged with their debut album Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers in 1993, it warned the Rap world to protect its neck from the collective’s chokehold. ONYX did the same when they “slammed” anything and anyone in their way.
Five years later, in 1998, Wu-Tang and ONYX reached new plateaus success, establishing them as two of the most unpredictable crews in Hip-Hop. Each group’s aesthetic of graveyard grit lyricism, personal tales of their crime-filled neighborhoods, WWE levels of in-your-face intensity, and Timberland boot-stomping beats gave them endless amounts of street credibility.
So when the Killa Bees of Staten Island and the bald headed Queens crew joined forces for their long-awaited 1998 collaboration, it was aptly titled “The Worst” because that’s exactly what they had ambitiously set to inflict on their foes.
RZA’s latest venture might be his most unusual yet and that’s saying something. The Abbot of the Wu-Tang Clan has partnered with Chipotle Mexican Grill for SAVOR.WAVS, a “musical experience” inspired by the ingredients of the restaurant’s chain.
The acclaimed producer has crafted 51 sounds to coincide with the ingredients available at Chipotle. Aspiring producers can go to the SAVOR.WAVS site to mix these sounds and create their own beat. The interactive platform aims to mimic the process of an order at Chipotle as users can keep it simple or throw together a variety of sounds.

Method Man is continuing to sink his teeth into the world of acting.
HBO recently premiered a new trailer for The Deuce, a drama about the prostitution and porn industries in New York during the late-70's and early-80's, which sees the veteran rapper assume the role of Rodney. "Scary world out here, baby," he utters to another female character. The Deuce, from the creative team that brought us The Wire, premieres on September 10th.
