As HHK previously reported, two of the biggest brands in Hip-Hop history have collaborated on a joint project that had fans in anticipation one year before its release. Wu-Tang Clan and D-Block (Wu Block) was released on 27th November 2012, and was a joint venture between the two groups, arguably two of the most recognised and talented groups we’ve ever witnessed in Hip-Hop history. Fans of the U.K will be delighted to hear that Wu Block will be performing in London on Tuesday 12th January 2013, and “The Garage” in London will be host to Ghostface and Sheek Louch who will be representing their individual groups. Tickets can be purchased from the link above, where I’ve also listed the official event flyer. You can listen to Wu Block – Stick Up Kids on the youtube player below.
In one of the biggest Hip-Hop concerts expected this year, Mean Fiddler present Wu Legends featuting Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and GZA live in Manchcester on Saturday 14th July. The HMV Ritz will be host to the four Hip-Hop legends, who will be playing old AND new music, and return to Manchester after a sell-out event last year at The Academy. All signs are pointing towards another sell-out show, so please grab your tickets while they’re still available from the link above. Also fans are invited to the official after party at Antwerp Mansion with a live performance from Raekwon (Click HERE) for info. You can view the official flyer for the Wu Legends here.
About Doomstarks from Wikipedia.
Swift & Changeable was the name given to an unfinished collaboration album between MF DOOM and Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah which was announced in 2006 as a 2007 release. The project was described by Devin Horwitz of the Nature Sounds label as “about 75% done,” and produced by MF DOOM with one track by the late J Dilla.
Ghostface Killah & MF Doom appeared together (via digital enhancement) on a 2007 cover of Mass Appeal, which billed them as “GhostDOOM”. In a video interview MF Doom he referred to the project as “DoomStarks”. In a July 2009 interview, Ghostface Killah confirmed work on the album but later downplayed any hope of the album being made in an interview with Billboard Magazine.
One record they won’t hear for a while is his long-rumored collaboration with MF Doom. “Not as of right now,” he reports. “I’m about to go on the road again and I gotta finish up (the sequel to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…) with Raekwon, so maybe when everything gets cleared out of the way, but we’ll find a space.”
The one song attributed to the project, “Angelz”, was released on MF Doom’s 2009 album Born Like This. Recently Nature Sounds released a new song in 2011 called “Victory Laps (Madvillainz Remix)” featuring both rappers and produced by the production duo. The original will be released later on in the month of July.
I never thought I’d see a Wu-Tang Clan and Dipset collaboration, but we have a brand new single from Raekwon ft Jim Jones and Ghostface called “Rock N Roll”. The track is taken from Raekwon’s forthcoming album Shaolin vs Wu Tang which will be released on March 8th 2011. Raekwon is also touring the U.K in March to promote the album at five venues listed below. Hip-Hop Kings will be posting more information on the forthcoming Shaolin vs Wu Tang album as it becomes available. You can listen to Raekwon ft Jim Jones and Ghostface – Rock N Roll on the audio player below.

A new Ghostface and Method Man feature has revealed a story during their early days (early 1990′s) when the duo were touring with the Wu-Tang Clan. A prank pulled on Method Man himself could have taken a turn for the worse, but Tical responded and upset various members of the Wu. You can watch both Ghostface and Method Man speak of the incident on the player below.
Hip-Hop Kings previously announced a new album from Redman x Method Man x Ghostface which was currently untitled. The video promo for the album was a series one of three, and was inspired by the David Fincher movie Seven. The second edition has now been released which has an equally disturbing scene, this time highlighting Sparks (Ghostface) as the man involved. You can watch the trailer for Method Man x Ghostface x Raekwon – The Wu Massacre on the player below.
I couldn’t have predicted this one. Method Man, Redman and Ghostface have announced the news that a collaborative album which is currently untitled and will be released on December 22nd. Distribution is so far unconfirmed, along with production and guest appearances. The new album has a promotional video (part 1 of 3) which is influenced by the movie Seven which was directed by Rik Cordero. News came at a bigger surprise as Ghostface has just released his latest album “Ghostdini : The Wizard of Emerald Ctiy”, and Redman announced news about a new solo album “Reggie Noble 9 1/2″ You can watch the Method Man x Redman x Ghostface – New album video trailer on the player below.
