    I had always just assumed his name was some odd reference to the Moroccan version of tic tac toe (that's kind of like chess for idiots), or spaghetti o's (which is food for idiots).
    Either way, it...

    I was pleasantly surprised by everyone's verse on this. Except U-God! Which is surprising cuz I feel like he's been the most consistent dude in the clan since he dropped 'Dopium'. Then when we get a...

    I don't have a degree or anything. I'm just a cook. And I don't make much, but I'm ok with that. I like my life.
    I used to work at a place where our steaks were $75-100. Once they had sat around...

    Meth may just be my favorite mc of all time. Not for his lyrical content because he rarely has anything to say, but his technique is next level. Especially on recent stuff, his flow is second to...

    Why bother asking dude questions about the book. He stated in the thread he couldn't even get through the whole thing.

    As a musician from the Chicago/Wisconsin area, my life has been filled with playing with old jazz cats who almost made it. They may have crazy credentials. They may be on multiple classic jazz...

    I think U-God is crazy underrated, but a huge part of that is consistency. All his albums have been inconsistent, some really great tracks, and some really whack ones.
    The first half or so of...

    I dig the album version more as well. That's one of my favorite beats on the record. This sounds less coherent, and more like a mixtape joint.

    36 Chambers is so dope, because it's a great appetizer for the clan. You get the gist of every dude. They would go on to elaborate on their styles on the solo records through Forever, but 36 will...

    This whole conception of comparing this to the baroque and the renaissance makes sense at first glance.
    It's like the king, commissioning a musical piece back in the good old days.
    Except, back...

    I actually dig ABT. It was something different. It holds together as a decent concept album. Plus, it's the first Wu record where dudes are rhyming about the same topic on most of the joints.
    I...

    I went with Meth, but MK really surprised me on this record. He really came through.
    I'd say Cappa also surprised me. I wasn't crazy about his rhymes themselves, but dude brought energy and grime...

    I think a lot Wu fans are worse than classic rock fans. They don't want anything new. They don't want to see artists grow and change. Hip hop will die if folks keep thinking 90's shit is the end all...

    Why does everyone seem to think that Ron O'Neal is an original RZA composition, and not just a sample based track he had a live band replay?

    As someone who makes some of my living from doing paintings, I actually really dig this idea in theory. My biggest beef is it's being sold as a Wu record, when really it's a Cilva record, featuring...

    I'm sure tons of people will be lining up to pay $30-$50 to listen to a an album that runs 128 minutes on head phones in a gallery. Brilliant idea.

    For all we know, this is something ghost threw down while on tour, having not slept much for days on end.
    Yeah, his voice sounds worse than usual, but I doubt this was something he put much work...

    Both albums are good. Neither is a classic. Cuban Linx is a classic. Neither of these are on that level.
    Both are good, and big steps in the right direction, but to call them classics is just...

    The great thing about the video is that each members scene captures their style well.

    M, not big on your music, but have BIG respect for your work in the industry. It needs more folks like you. Nothing but respect man.

    If RZA gave a shit about what type of sound people wanted, he NEVER would have developed that Wu sound in the first place. When 36 Chambers dropped, people didn't look at it as the classic it's...

    So, is "Mr. Ashley" a "Boy George" type thing?
    If you put the same amount of time in your work that you did replying to people who didn't like your work, you'd be better off.
