RAEKWON AND GHOSTFACE KILLAH!
Forget whatcha heard because the Wu-Tang Clan is coming back with a vengence in 2009 while carrying a very sharp shaolin sword! After hearing the official leakage of Raekwon's "Cuban Linx 2" joint, and a few tracks from Ghostface's upcoming album "Ghostalini:Wizard of Poetry" it's hard to deny that the Wu is back. That Cuban Linx 2 album is beautiful hip-hop music that reminds fans of the Golden Era of the 1990s. With all of the hype surrounding this release, I wasn't sure if they could pull it off or not, but they did. The production is tight, lyrics are on point and most of the Clan members made cameo appearances throughout. What else could we ask for? If you haven't actually purchased a rap album in over a decade these new Rae and Ghost albums may be worthy enough for you to dig in your change purse again.
If you missed it, check out Ghostface's first single "Baby" featuring Raheem:
Ghostface Killah's second single is called "Stapelton Sex" that is full of raunchy flavor in the spirit of those early Too Short and 2 Live Crew tracks from back in the day. The leakage is within your grasp...
