I certainly missed this. Apparently Shyheim got sentenced to 14 years in jail almost two years ago. That is quite some time. I remember when everybody was waiting for his release after 1999, when he got Jailed after Manchild. Damn.

Earlier this year, RZA was exploring the archives of tapes stashed at the Wu Mansion when he came across the unreleased ODB recording.
The single from the late Wu-Tang Clan legend, “Obey Me,” (remixed by Shash’U) can be heard here.
The original track, along with another remix by High Klassified (Fools Gold Records), is embedded in a limited edition Boombot REX speaker and is now available through www.Boombotix.com and Zumiez stores.
The video features ODB’s son aka Ol’ Dirty Bastard Jr. with special cameo from Shash’U (youtube.com/iamshashu). Directed & Edited by @ManuallFocus Media LLC / Cinematographer @SeanHHoran.
Although Popa Wu might’ve solved life, his shit ain’t on my iTunes. Long live Gravediggaz.
Although how they managed to not include Holocaust/Warcloud is my guess. They got so many one time affiliates listed it is unreal.
Looks like Shkreli is carrying his troll battle with Ghostface into hiphop. Album coming 2017?
Meth has called his quits on social media. Don’t expect him to post anymore. If you are wondeirng why, check out this HipHopDX post. Spoiler, it has to do with privacy.
In a quite hilarious turn of events, Martin Shkreli trolls a Twitter battle rapper. The dude dropped his name once. After that the owners of the battle site are not that privacy concerned and oust Martin Shkreli as a new member. And all tumbles down like a tumblr post where this guy challenges Shkreli for his Wu-Tang/Cilvaringz album. Not saying what he will leverage.
Check this nice Vice article with some amazing photo’s of the Wu in their heyday.
Even though Atari may be a corporate shell living on a brand set in the beginning of the 80’s, it’ll be interesting to see what RZA is going to flip flop.
I wonder. Can’t say I’m just as amped as I would be hearing this before Fishscale was released. But we will see. Hopefully he can get them all together now. Now phoning in.
Nice article about hiphop in 2015 with GZA’s view on the matter.
GZA Speaks: The Lost Art of Lyricism
Don’t we just love dreaming about those albums that never were. like all those early RZA beats that got lost in the flood. It almost seems like a divine story. Too bad the story does not have the best ending. Since the legacy is there, but not enough records to show n prove.
Looks like that second Cilvaringz album can’t catch a break. From Ghostface feuding. To nobody listening to it. If a tree falls in the wood, does anybody care?
