METHOD MAN, GHOST FACE KILLA & REAKWON the CHEF at long last released their FIRST STUDIO album as a CREW...WU Ma**ACRE, if the cover art and the snippets ive heard are anything to go by, its a GEM....




as soon as i get my hands on this, il be sure to give youl a shout  ;)


here is a review i liked, turns out RUBEN SOLARES a blogger i follow wasnt impressed, all the same, im still checking for it  8):

"Don't call it a comeback: the Wu never really went away. Regardless of demand, members of the legendary rap outfit have been consitently releasing music since their cla**ic debut in 1993. Ever since last year, when Raekwon released the much celebrated follow up to his cla**ic Only Built for Cuban Linx (the cleverly titled Only Built for Cuban Linx II) it signaled a sort of rebirth for the group, and subsequent releases by individual Wu-tang members would seem to suggest that we are in the midst of some sort of a 'Wu renaissance'. Makes sense then that the three 'lead' members of the group, Raekwon, Ghostface, and Method Man are striking while the iron is hot by repackaging themselves as a super-group called Wu Ma**acre.

With Meth, Ghostface, and Raekwon doing an album together, expectations are understandably high. Wu ma**acre unfotunatley falls a bit short, mainly due to some of the production. The album seems rushed, and even with it's short length, plauged with filler. The other issue is that it seems obvious that the wu knows the formula for success and sticks to it so arduosly here. One of the many instances of them going back to well is the album opener "Criminology pt. 2.5" in which the sample a different break from the same Black Ivory song as the original. It's a strong opener but nothing amazing. "Our Dreams" which features Alicia Keys along with its echoing guitar wahs and wind chimes just sounds hollow and sentimental. It slyly recalls Ghost's cla**ic "All that I got is You" and seems to exist just so they can check "Jackson 5" off their list of tropes to trot out once more.

Wu ma**acre even includes a couple skits that it could have done without. "Ya mom's' in which Method Man and Raekwon play the dozens, follows Meth vs. Chef pat 2 (yet another sequel). Tracy Morgan, (or is it Chico Divine?) implores to a woman to start turning tricks for money on "How to Pay Rent." It might be worth a few listens if the skit were actually funny"...

1. DJ MUGGS & BAMBU - Los Angeles - Phillippines

is this a mixtape?

pardon the late reply....in case you hadnt recieved any information since asking the question...the answer is really YES & NO...

to be more precise, one would have to understand what DJ MUGGS & SOUL a**a**INS represent in LA and what BAMBU as an emcee represents in the community therein. to clarify, BAMBU dropped his album "PAPER CUTS" in 2010 (this was supposed to be his FINAL album before hanging up the mic)...not too long after that, the album, produced by his DJ, DJ PHATRICK landed in MUGGS' lap and he (MUGGS) dug it deep. they then linked up and worked on what would be BAM's crowning acheivement before retirement, to WORK WITH MUGGS ofcourse, but not just work with him but get to adorne beats made famous by super emcees.

so the album is really a mixtape since it uses beats we all know (safe for one, specifically banged out for BAM) but it is an album in the sence that it doesnt preceed anything, it fittingly marks the end of a talented spitter's career.

however i must add that since speaking to BAM, he has indicated that he will be back on the MIC DEVICE after two years of hiatus to drop another album, something he will call "TWO RIFLES PER FAMILY"

hope i was able to answer your question  ;)
