    I'm not into this album yet... its decent, got a couple tracks I liked right away, but I need to give the album some time to grow on me before I pass judgement...

    Still nothing compares to 36 chambers raw style and all the sweet kung fu clips...

    Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang

    RZA is on Rock The Bells this year. I'm hoping to see him next month.
    The Streets Is Talking: News & Notes From the Underground

    Raekwon the Chef is out promoting Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, but there are a couple of other LPs he's looking toward in the future. There's a Rae, Method Man and Ghostface Killah album being talked about, as well as that full Wu-Tang Clan LP called Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang. If you remember, Rae first spoke of that album to Miss Info a few years ago during the promotion of the ill fated 8 Diagrams LP. Rae hinted that Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang would be some type of payback toward the RZA.

    Rae explained that there is currently no unrest within the Wu, so Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang will instead pay homage to the Clan's beginning.

    "Before I was a member of Wu, I was an MC on the street that just loved hip-hop," the Chef said. "When you think of Shaolin [Staten Island], you think of the home of the brave. Before anything and everything, this is where you was from. You inherited your style as a kid coming up. Shaolin is still considered the streets to us. So it's like me challenging my old way of life. This album was designed to let the master know your students are now masters too. We wanted to take it back to challenging the master on a couple of techniques we feel we got from the street side of things.

    "We always said Wu-Tang members are a group but still able to hold their own," he added. "When you're able to hold your own, you're still considered that dude from Shaolin that's nice. It's just an alter-ego thing challenging the sharpest sword we ever had with our old tactics that allowed us to get that far as a Clan. [It'll] be alter egos challenging each other, really allowing RZA to fall back on the production and allowing us to give him a flashback memory to the things we know we need from the abbot [RZA]. We want him to be involved [with the album as an MC], but the concept was for him not to be involved production-wise."

    Rae compared Wu to a martial-arts film.

    "It's like when you look at your illest karate flick," he said. "Sometimes the abbot be whooping on you so much, he's teaching you to get iller. Next thing you know, you whoop on the abbot. Now he already know: 'I gotta give you the crown now.' It's all love, and it's movies. Our life is a karate flick. If you look at a karate flick, it's the same kinda format in our life."

    More buzz from Method

    There's a very short clip if you follow the link.
    Jul 23 2009 1:21 PM EDT
    Method Man Wants To Hook Up With Ghostface, Raekwon For Joint LP
    'I want some feedback from the fans to see how they would take that,' Meth says of partial Wu-Tang Clan album.
    By Jayson Rodriguez

    Raekwon is readying his solo album, and Ghostface Killah will be wrapping up his next project soon, so does this mean that Shaolin's finest will be reuniting in the foreseeable future for an official Wu-Tang Clan LP?

    Not exactly.

    But if it's up to Method Man, some of the sharpest dart throwers in the Clan will get together for a group project. Reiterating Raekwon's remarks to Mixtape Daily on Tuesday, Meth said he, the Chef and Ghostface might join forces for a collaborative effort.

    "It's in discussion right now," Method Man told MTV News. "I don't want to say it's written in stone, but it's in discussion. I want some feedback from the fans to see how they would take that. RZA produced tracks, some other outside producers, of course, and we gonna have Wu-Tang members on the album, but it'll be a Rae, Ghost and Meth album."

    Method Man said getting a new deal for the entire collective would take more time compared to locking something down for arguably the three most charismatic members of the crew. At this point in Method Man's career, he's focused on making music more in a collective manner than on his own, even if it's not a full family project.

    "This is the most comfortable I've been in my whole career," Meth said. "Because I don't have all those obligations that I've had before. You know, doing the Wu-Tang, then the Wu-Tang solo projects, then my project, then me and Redman. Right now, I can do it at my own leisure. Honestly, I don't want to make an album by myself, but it's something that's required, and the fans want that, so I'm gonna do that.

    "But the same way with my shows, I like doing shows with brothers instead of just doing them by myself," Method Man continued. "I like to have a crowd around. And have that input to make the project better."
    And more from Rock the Bells:

    Wu-Tang Clan/ Slaughterhouse Beef Quashed At Rock The Bells
    Nas, Damian Marley headline a peaceful day at Jones Beach.
    By Shaheem Reid

    WANTAGH, New York — It was musical, it was nostalgic, but most important, it was not violent. Guerilla Union held their annual Rock the Bells show Sunday at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater as part of the yearly tour. Going into the show, there had been heavy tension involving two of the acts, the Wu-Tang Clan and Slaughterhouse.

    Slaughterhouse's Joe Budden had been involved in a back-and-forth with Method Man and Inspectah Deck for weeks. Although Deck and Meth were not officially on the Rock the Bells bill, it was no surprise when both appeared at Jones Beach to support RZA and Raekwon, who were slated to perform.

    The Clan brought the ruckus, not the ignorance. They rocked the theater with a catalog of hits and didn't waste time dissing Slaughterhouse. At the end of the performance, Meth told the crowd no one in the rap game could touch him or his brothers.

    "Can't nobody touch the legacy," Meth boasted. "Our track record speaks louder than any of them mutha----as."

    Between the end of Wu's set and the beginning of Slaughterhouse's, Method Man and Joe Budden were seen walking together in the parking lot. The two took their time quashing the beef.

    When Slaughterhouse, which also includes Royce da 5'9", Joell Ortiz and Crooked I, took the stage, they publicly announced the end of the short-term feud.

    "It will never be a beef with Wu-Tang clan," Royce said. He then revealed the convo between Meth and Budden, saying the situation was "squashed."

    But Rock the Bells wasn't just about them. Other performers included Big Boi, Common, Black Star, the Roots, Buckshot and headliners Nas and Damien "Jr. Gong" Marley.

    Nas started his set with classics like "N.Y. State of Mind," then shared the stage with Jr. Gong. Nas kicked familiar verses (his rhymes off "The Message" and reggae-inspired hip-hop tracks like Shyne's "Bad Boyz"), and Jr. Gong came back doing his reggae chats over some of Nas' beats, including "Represent."

    The rapper also brought out AZ for "Phone Tap" and "Life's a *****." Then he let D-Block have their own mini-set, highlighted by "Good Times," "Wild Out," "Who's Real" and Jadakiss' duet with Nas, "What If."
    Is the Wu coming back together like Voltron? Hell, I'm changing the title of this thread from "The end of The Wu Tang Clan!!!!" to "Wu Forever!"

    good title change.....i really dont think wu tang will ever fully die... these nine guys were so instrumental in pushing hip hop music into the center stage of american music... Rap music is one of the very few art forms that is strictly american, we own it, and nobody can do it better, ive heard rap from all over, and none have compaed with the way americans do it(with the notable exception of slick rick the ruler, who hales from merry ol' england and is still the best **** story teller breathing). but back to the WU, people have been wanting raekwon and ghost face to do an album for years....every interview you read of those two the interviewer asked the same question, when are you and ghost doing and album or when are you and rae doing an album, i have yet to read or hear an interview where that topic wasnt brought up. but the whole problem was record labels, and all that political jargon...sp adding meth to the mix putting rza on the tracks makes it a semi wu tang album....and your talking about the three best from wu tang hands down. cant wait to hear this one.

    The Wu-Tang Clan Is Experiencing a Hilarious TV Renaissance

    Posted at 10:15 AM
    By TV Guide

    TV is f---in’ with the Wu-Tang Clan.

    The New York City rap collective has been showing up on TV in unexpected places recently. More specifically, the group’s iconic W logo has been a sight gag on two different shows in the past two weeks. First it showed up as a tattoo on Nora Dunn’s (Carrie Coon) arm on an episode of The Leftovers last month, and then it showed up again in Tuesday’s season finale of The Mick on a headband worn by Jimmy (Scott MacArthur).

    Wu-Tang was a bigger deal on The Leftovers. In the episode, Nora shows Erika (Regina King) a tattoo she got of the logo for “the Wu-Tang Band,” as she calls it, to cover up a previous tattoo she had gotten of her departed children’s names. She explains that immediately after she got the tattoo of the names, she realized it would be too emotionally painful to have them there, so she had the tattoo artist cover it up with the first thing she saw on the wall of the shop. The design she chose happened to be the Wu-Tang Clan logo (at first she thought it was a phoenix). The out-of-left-field randomness of it makes for a hilarious reveal.

    Wu-Tang is a presence throughout the episode. Nora and Erika jump on a trampoline while the Clan’s song “Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off)” plays. The writers credited on the episode are Tha Lonely Donkey Kong and Specialist Contagious, who are show creators Tom Perrotta and Damon Lindelof with their names run through a Wu-Tang name generator.

    The W shows up again in the season finale of The Mick when Mickey’s (Kaitlin Olson) boyfriend Jimmy is approached to become a police informant. Jimmy makes a lot ridiculous demands before he’ll tell the police what they want to know, and one of his demands is a Wu-Tang headband.

    Kaitlin Olson tells TVGuide.com she’s honored to be in the company of The Leftovers in this trend, and she’s “probably going to insist that Jimmy get a Wu-Tang tattoo in Season 2, just because I want to continue this trend.”

    These examples come a few months after Wu-Tang member Method Man appeared as himself on Luke Cage. More peripherally, Method Man is a ubiquitous actor, showing up everywhere from Blue Bloods to the upcoming HBO series The Deuce, and Wu-Tang leader RZA directed an episode of Iron Fist.

    This Wu-Tang swarm comes at a low ebb for the group musically. They haven’t commercially released an album since 2014, and their conceptual art project Once Upon a Time in Shaolin has been marred by its excessive exclusivity and association with pharma entrepreneur/internet troll Martin Shkreli. Raekwon released a solo album last month, but none of the nine members’ solo work has made a splash of late.

    So perhaps this little trend is a sign that they should all focus their efforts on television. The success of projects like Straight Outta Compton and The New Edition Story probably indicates that people would watch a Wu-Tang origin story miniseries. There may not be room for a gritty urban kung-fu series so soon after Luke Cage and Iron Fist, but maybe a stylish one where the members of the Wu-Tang Clan play leaders of warring gangs could be done. Or maybe a fantastical kung-fu series in the vein of RZA’s movie The Man with the Iron Fists.

    On the other hand, perhaps it’s a sign that they should reconvene and make a really dope Wu-Tang album.

    Oct. 13 - that'll be an auspicious day for all sorts of things.

    Wu-Tang Clan Returns With New Song 'People Say,' Announces 'The Saga Continues' Album
    8/25/2017 by Nerisha Penrose


    Jonathan Weiner
    Wu-Tang Clan

    The clan is back. After recently resurrecting their Wu Wear clothing line, Wu-Tang Clan dropped off a surprise track titled "People Say" featuring a guest verse from their longtime affiliate Redman. To sweeten the pot, they also officially announced the release date of their seventh studio album Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues, due Oct. 13 via RZA and Entertainment One's lifestyle company 36 Chambers Alc.

    Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues is the group's first album since 2014's A Better Tomorrow. The upcoming album will be produced by Mathematics and executive produced by RZA. The collective's double album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin was set to be released back in 2015, but was sold to Martin Shrekli, who continued to taunt the group after purchasing it for $2 million by previewing multiple tracks off the unreleased album.

    Wu-Tang gave fans the first taste of their new album with "People Say," which opens with a kung-fu movie sample before Method Man's gravelly voice rides the piano-laden melody. "Ain't no vacay, the props become a problem when it's hot, mayday mayday/ But no charge, I'm nutty with the bars that's a payday," he raps. "So bruh, this ain't even a bar, this is AA/Back up in the trunk with the AK." Redman later appears and lends his energetic flow to the smooth track with lines like, "I show you the ropes, I'm narrating Al Haymon/I told Lighty, if I hate him, I'ma violate him."

    Listen to "People Say" below.

    On the new track, which features Redman, Inspectah Deck mentions “pharma-bro” Martin Shkreli, who famously purchased the only copy of Wu-Tang’s Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $2 million: “My price hikin’ like the pills Martin Shkreli sell.”

    Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues is now available for pre-order, which provides buyers with an instant download of “Lesson Learn’d.”

    Wudang "male" ranking

    武当“型男”排名
    收藏
     作者:大昊  发布时间:2016-06-12  阅读数:1870  评论数:0
    在Wu-tang clan发行专辑Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) 二十周年前夕,一场大动作正在酝酿。Wu-Tang品牌刚推出了一批纪念36 Chambers 20周年服饰,而且据说还有更多武当装备要到货,包括与DC的合作。(武当粉已经没法坐定了把!)回首过往 ,Wu-tang大家族及其分支在二十年的岁月里改变了整个音乐流派,也改变了Hip Hop的穿着风格。他们的范儿就像他们的音乐一样硬核,也正如同他们的音乐,每个团队中的成员都在这上面有 自己独特鲜明的天赋。



    团体内的竞争促使每个成员在歌中增加猛料,也让他们费心打理着装扮——Polo衫, Wallabees(袋鼠鞋)—— 看看整个东海岸,我们就知道它们引领了街头服饰(streetwear)的潮流。在此我们要鞠躬感谢武当。 话虽这么说,一些成员必须比其他人更加有型!仅仅局限于此列表九个原始创始成员,我们根据他们的穿衣风格给 他们排了下座。

    9. Masta Killa



    严肃的说,哥们。有没有人见过MASTA KILLA的头发?这位老兄一直带着Doo Rag。他的品味可能在Wu-tang中是最后的。但如果他开始摇摆丝绿色佩斯利长袍,他排位可能会向上攀升点。

    8. Inspectah Deck



    如果这是一个家乡自豪感的榜单,INS或许会排到第一。即使像你的城市致敬确实值得我们的掌声,但他的范儿 确实有上升的空间,但我们希望他不要弄丢他那条武当链子。

    7. U-God



    胡子帮出没。如果你需要灵感的话看看U-God。他一直保持着他的小胡子。另外,U-God穿起Wu Wear像一位专家。他也许永远上不了T台,但当“that banging ****”的广告出现在Wu-Tang’s Shaolin的店面时总会使孩子们想到Wu Wear又要出新款了。

    6. GZA



    在Wu-tang成立之前,GZA已说唱圈活跃了。他也是武当派成员中穿衣风格最轻松的。他穿衣从来不离帽衫,运动 夹克。他的范儿可以完美搭配一个舒适的沙发。他去哈佛大学开讲座与喜欢下棋可以给他加分——因为聪明永远是 时尚。
