RBMA with Wu [VIDEO]

A few years back, 2012, a couple of the guys from the Clan sat down with RBMA to talk Wu. The talk lasted for about an hour, and gives some interesting insights. A must watch, or read for the fan. So if you have the time, grab a seat, and turn back time.

Breaking news: CL2 in March ‘ 09

Please, don’t let my sarcastic title put you off. I mean all well and I want CL2 as much as the next man. But Rae, I don’t believe you, you need more people!

Raekwon hasn’t released a studio album in five years, but the prospect of a follow up to his 1995 classic, Only Built for Cuban Linx, still generates a buzz in most Hip Hop circles. That anticipation was raised when Rae signed with Aftermath Entertainment in 2006, but the union has still failed to produce any new material from “The Chef.”

I can’t help but wonder who will be doing the other half of the album. Mainly filled by Ghost originaly.

The Down Low On Black & White

Black & WhiteAfter last sunday’s rundown of Black & White video’s I came across this post breaking down the movie. It gives a very interesting retrospective on what the movie tried to accomplish and what it actually did. Trying to capture the white HipHop audience.

On April 5th, 2000, a new movie reached theaters and it created quite the controversy. The Palm Pictures film was called “Black and White” and it was a collaborative effort between Wu Tang Clan exec Oli “Power” Grant and writer/director James Toback (both pictured below). The movie was an experimental piece in which each performer/actor had a specific amount of information and key plot points that they were supposed to get across in each scene but other than that they were allowed to freestyle their own dialogue. It made for quite an interesting final product considering that many of the key players had never acted before and/or weren’t trained thespians of any kind.

This was something that I missed in the James Toback video diary. Certainly clears up alot of awkward moments the movie had and the acting overall.

As a bonus here is the ACT mixtape that has been floating around. The only collection of ACT songs available.

Raekwon: ‘Kanye And Jay-Z Have Lost Touch’

RaekwonThe Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon thinks Kanye West and Jay-Z aren’t giving back. “A lot of street people don’t put stock in them anymore because they aren’t doing enough to excite anyone,” he tells us. He suggests both superstars should “come back to the hood and drop $100,000.” And why doesn’t he do that? “I don’t have money on that level,” says Chef. “And I don’t know where to drop it.” What’s more, the Staten Island rapper doesn’t dig the NYC hip-hop scene now because “everyone is ignorant and arrogant. When you’re around that crap, you become part of it.
