    Inspectah Deck Wants The Wu-Tang Clan To Be More Cohesive

    When it comes to the Wu-Tang Clan, Inspectah Deck has always played something of a second banana role, which is fine by him so long as the Wu are operating as a unit -- which isn't always the case.  In a recent interview with VladTV, Deck explained his financial reliance on the Wu-Tang Clan and expressed frustration at the way they are being managed as well as his desire for more communication and transparency when it comes to making business decisions.

    10 Best Hip-Hop Crews Of All Time
    Jun 24, 2015 at 10:48am
    The hip hop crew is an essential part of success. Whether big or small, every rapper has an entourage. Sometimes it's full of rappers, and other times it's just his buddies from back in the day, nonetheless, weak links in a crew can water down the crew as a whole-- something we took into consideration when crafting this list. You have the multimedia approach that Odd Future takes, and also the full-on lyrical assault that Wu-Tang Clan makes. Both are great crews, but who would comprise a list of the best rap crews of all time?

    Austin's 10th annual Fun Fun Fun Fest will be going down November 6-8 this year, and today, we get a peek at the jam-packed lineup. As has been the case in years past, the shows are divided between three stages, all of which host different genres. There's the black stage for metal and punk, the orange for indie and rock, and the blue stage for hip hop and electronic. This year, the hip hop lineup looks pretty promising.

    Yesterday, the power duo of Wu-Tang veteran Ghostface Killah and retro-soul maestro Adrian Younge shared the fiery "Return of the Savage," the first track we'd heard from their upcoming sequel to 2013's Twelve Reasons To Die. Today, they come back with the tracklist for the July 10th release.

    Raekwon & Ghostface Killah Are Going On An "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx" 20th Anniversary Tour
    May 12, 2015 at 12:36pm
    Raekwon and Ghostface brought in the 15th(ish) anniversary of Raekwon's classic debut, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, with the stellar second installment (OB4CL2), and they have similarly big plans for the 20th anniversary. The duo will be teaming up for a 32-date summer tour, where we assume they will perform large portions of the album, if not just performing the full LP in its entirety. Things kick off July 7th in Philly, moving throughout the states (but unfortunately, not Canada) befor closing things off August 18th in L.A.

    May 8, 2015 at 08:00pm
    Drake's Nothing Was The Same was chuck full of Wu-Tang references, from getting Timbaland to interpolate the iconic "C.R.E.A.M." hook, to shouting out ODB, and yes, even Cappadonna. However, the biggest homage to the crew was Wu-Tang Forever, a song which was rumored to be remixed with several members of the Clan, but for some reason, never came to fruition. In a recent interview with Vulture, Drake finally cleared things up.

    It’s tough to get 100 percent behind the Wu-Tang Clan these days. No one can deny their influence and run of classic records in the 90s, but drama, stylistic confusion, and album delays have plagued the crew for the past half-decade.

    Classic Rotation: Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version"

    Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version turns 20 today. Rap music’s most eccentric figure isn’t here to celebrate the occasion, but he did leave behind a phenomenal LP during his time here on earth. Produced in large part by the RZA, Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version elaborates on the rugged and raw Wu-Tang style they displayed on their famous LP Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).

    The story behind Wu-Tang Clan's Once Upon A Time In Shaolin gets weirder and weirder each day. By this point, you probably know that only one copy of the album has been made, and while it will be available for sale, no one has scooped it up yet (though a rumor that Skrillex purchased the album for $5 Million did circulate briefly).

    Hype Williams may have only directed four videos in 2014, but that doesn't mean we can't all remember a time when every dope hip-hop video seemed to have Hype's fingerprints on it. Countless legendary MCs collaborated with Hype Williams, including the likes of Jay Z, Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Busta Rhymes and A Tribe Called Quest, and also R&B stars like Blackstreet, Aaliyah, Usher and Mary J. Blige. He is definitely the most prolific video director in the hip-hop world.

    The rap game is all about your aesthetic. What you do, how you do it, how you look and how you market yourself are all a massive factor in a successful career. Some rappers take their aesthetic to the next level, creating something completely unique out of their brand. When they accomplish that, they can receive a cult-like following because it becomes much bigger than just the music; it becomes the culture.

    GZA will be 50 next year, and while the MC might spend more time working on his chess game than writing rhymes, he certainly paid his dues while releasing tons of classic material. GZA is the only Wu-Tang Clan member to have released an album before 36 Chambers dropped. Always ahead of the curve, he doesn't get the nickname 'The Genius' for nothing. He spits straight knowledge on his beats, and never succumbs to the ignorance we see in modern rap (or even occasionally in ODB's rhymes!).

    Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is a certified classic, depending who you're talking to, it could be viewed as the greatest Wu-Tang solo project (though it's almost cheating considering Ghostface is on nearly every track). It also gained the rare honor of a legitimately great sequel, with 2009's OB4CL2, but as the 20th anniversary approaches this year, Rae has one more surprise for fans of the project.

    No truer words have ever been uttered than the ones Method Man said of Ol' Dirty Bastard on their legendary 36 Chambers album. ODB is truly one of a kind, with absolutely no father to his style. With a name as crazy as his flow, Ol' Dirty Bastard took the world by storm during his 10 year hip-hop takeover.

    It's been a while since we've gotten an update on The Wu-Tang Clan's purportedly one-of-a-kind album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, but now that the buzz from December's A Better Tomorrow has died down, it looks like the crew have rethought the strategy by which they'll release the new project.

    This week on Charts Don't Lie we see the Christmas spirit in effect, as Mariah Carey's 1994 album Merry Christmas soars back up the charts. We're also seeing a relatively quick decent for the MMG boss Rick Ross, and a relatively low debut for his counterpart Omarion. Wu-Tang Clan arrive on the charts with A Better Tomorrow receiving around 25k streams and sales, although they get one-upped by Ms. Mary J. Blige who did 57k with her album The London Sessions.

    Ghostface Killah goes by many names: Ghostdini, Iron Man, Tony Starks, Pretty Tone and any slang-derivative of 'em is pretty much fair game. Despite the identity crisis, Ghost has always been reliable for putting out quality music. The Staten Island MC, whose real name is Dennis Coles, is well-known for his witty slang and impeccable story-telling, all of which has weathered two decades of prolific output.

    Last week, the two biggest albums to be released in the hip-hop/R&B sphere came from NYC-based '90s heavyweights. First off, Mary J. Blige dropped her invigorating, British-themed project The London Sessions, and then The Wu-Tang Clan finally freed their first album since 2007's 8 Diagrams, A Better Tomorrow, and now we have the first week sales for both.

    It's been seven years since the Wu-Tang Clan released their last proper album, 8 Diagrams, but of course, that doesn’t mean the members of rap’s greatest clan have been prepping for an early retirement. Not by a long shot.  Since 8 Diagrams, there have been a number of efforts from Clan members, most notably records by Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and Method Man. While the three collaborated on 2010’s Wu-Massacre, they have also been involved in a variety of other projects.
