    Drake shook up the internet as per usual when his track "Wu-Tang Forever" leaked. The record, which you'll receive with the pre-order of Nothing Was The Same, is produced by Noah '40' Shebib and samples Wu's "It's Yourz." A lot of comments in regards to the track have been mixed with confusion as well as hate, perhaps because Wu-Tang isn't the point of discussion in the record-- it's a Drizzy song straight up, as he discusses his girls and artistry.

    The inspiration rappers have drawn from comic book characters over the years is undeniable, whether it be superheroes, villains or relatively normal protagonists who happen to find themselves in extraordinary circumstances. Some have even created comic books based on fictionalized versions of themselves, most notably the Wu-Tang Clan as a whole as well as individual members Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, RZA and GZA.

    Last September, right around the time when Drake's acclaimed album Nothing Was The Same was dropping, Wu-Tang Clan's U-God announced that he and his crew had recorded a remix of Drizzy's track "Wu-Tang Forever." A year has passed, and we still have no sign of that posse cut, so what happened?

He also shared portions of a conversation he had with Ghostface Killah.

    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.

    Raekwon is certainly among New York's rap royalty, so it only seems right that his opinion is considered in the "King Of New York" discussion. In a recent interview, the Wu rapper weighed in on Kendrick Lamar's hot topic "Control" verse, as well as his claim of being "king" of the city.

    Two things you should never count on in life are forum users and Wu-Tang affiliates, both of which were involved in a recent report that Skrillex had purchased the Wu-Tang Clan's Once Upon A Time In Shaolin for $5 Million. This of course created a scenario with two unreliable narrators, and if you've seen Gone Girl, you know that never goes well.

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of Yeezus' scriptures). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.

    Theres no way to deny it, we are currently living in a time in which streetwear reigns supreme.
