RZA's concept reshaping the album, literally

The Wu, perhaps a little hungry to stay ahead of the hype in any way possible, continues on the quest for the marketer’s new edge on the music industry. With all the buzz about the one-album-only concept surrounding their upcoming release of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, it’s not surprising A Better Tomorrow, their twentieth anniversary album, would […]

And the circle is complete, young padawan

Sometimes shit just has weird timing. Yesterday we posted the amazing How High’s the Water Mama tribute mixtape of De La Soul’s 3 Feet High and Rising debut album, and the day before we posted Rebels Without A Pause: The Induction Celebration of Public Enemy into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame documentary.

Revisit your Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth

The Wu- Tang Clan’s the Genius — aka GZA — is reissuing the essential Liquid Swords album in a deluxe double box set. Between Wu’s legendary debut Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) and the followup Forever, RZA helmed the first wave of Wu Tang solo albums, each a verifiable classic in its own right. But most […]

The Pursuit of Vengeance lifted to an immaculate art form...

Is there anybody — and I mean anybody — on this God’s green Earth that better manifests a Pursuit of Vengeance flick better than the great Quentin Tarantino? Unleashing a slave seeking revenge, and freedom, on a bunch of plantation owners seems like such a Tarantino no-brainer that in hindsight it’s shocking he hasn’t done […]
