Shaolin Vs. Wu Tang

Raekwon Feat. Ghostface Killah, Kobe & Jim Jones – “Rock N Roll”

By | 8 Comments

<a href=""> With the next leak off Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang, Raekwon gives the listening public a "hit of Mick Jagger." References to Willie Nelson, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Led Zeppelin, and other purveyors of that rock-and-roll abound as the Chef, Ghostface Killah and Jim Jones ride DJ Khalil's rattling synths and snapping drums with ease. While this is a fundamentally strong track, a few questions spring to mind. Why does Ghostface go off on a football-related tangent, dropping references to Tom Brady and LaDainian Tomlinson? What the hell is a hit of Mick Jagger? (I'm not sure I want to know.) If you had to guess which guest rapper would appear on the last two Wu-Tang releases, would anyone pick Jim Jones? These are the things that keep me up at night. Jimmy tells us that "I got that sour, so I stay Rolling Stone'd" in his verse. After this latest infusion of rock-inflected Wu madness, hopefully your high will last until Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang hits the streets on March 8th. Raekwon Feat. Ghostface Killah, Kobe & Jim Jones – "Rock N Roll" (Prod. by DJ Khalil) H/T: <a href="">Fact Mag</a> Below, Take an early look at the video for the album's title track, directed by Konee Rok and set to drop next week.

Eminem & Royce Da 5’9″ – “Echo”

By | 12 Comments

<a href="">Words by C. Paicely Seriously, when’s the last time you heard Em collab with another rapper with any question lingering as to who dominated the track? Throughout his career, Em has made a habit of effortlessly embarrassing other rappers on their own songs. Even D-12 records felt more like Eminem & Friends. Shady’s only recorded pound-for-pound equal has been Royce. Bad Meets Evil is a bonafied classic, and fans/Stans have waited impatiently for the two to do more work together. Then Royce and Marshall had a falling out and making up, while we all watched, waited and waited some more. Then we got that lyrical mind-f**k “Session One,” but it felt more like a Slaughterhouse track featuring Shady. With the leak of <a href="">“Living Proof”</a> a week ago and now “Echo,” a jizz-worthy re-partnership seems primed for 2011.


Emilio Rojas Feat. Mike Bigga – “FTW”

<a href="h"> My boo is mad that I'm buzzin', she's scared that I'm movin' on/A stubborn mothaf#cka, I stuck with her just to prove her wrong... I think it was Maurice Garland who tweeted this awhile back: isn't it odd how "FTW" (for the win) and "WTF" (what the f#ck) use the same letters to describe completely different emotions? This ain't got nothing to do with nothing, I just thought that I should mention. <a href="">Respect to Weezy</a>.
