Over the years, the Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) has become one of the most popular means of artists connecting with their fans. This week, Wu-Tang's Method Man hopped on the trend to promote his upcoming releases.
Redman took to Twitter last night to announce the August release of Muddy Waters 2: The Preload EP, a teaser project to be followed by the release of the highly-anticipated Muddy Waters 2 in the fall. Red has apparently been working on the sequel intermittently for the past four years.
Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the Wu-Tang Clan's rap opus Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, and Grantland had an in-depth interview with RZA who said he's been trying to orchestrate the Wu's next project, but some members have not been cooperating or putting in the work.
Macklemore is not going away any time soon. The rapper has been a mainstay on the charts since his breakthrough single "Thrift Shop," and with that success, he's had both positive and negative attention form critics and fellow rappers.
DJ Tony Touch has already come through with a few singles off his upcoming album, The Piece Maker 3: Return of the 50 MCs and he continues to give fans a taste of what to expect on it, with the tracklist.
Fans at the mtvU Woodie awards were impressed by a stage move Macklemore broke out the show, which found him performing an act similar to crowd surfing, but instead walking across the audience as they held him by his feet.
Recently, Raekwon spoke about his past beef with Joe Budden,
when Budden called out Method Man for being high on an “All-Time Rappers” list,
and Meth and other members of Wu-Tang took exception with how the
Slaughterhouse rapper went about it.
