Coming Soon...






No real post today, as I have to mentally prepare myself for what's to come next week.  "What would that be?", you may ask out loud like a crazy person.  Well, read on to find out.


Next week marks the release of the soundtrack to The RZA's directorial debut The Man With The Iron Fists, an album that you two knew I was going to want to write about anyway.  To celebrate the occasion, I plan on running Wu-Tang Clan-related write-ups for seven days straight, starting Sunday and ending on Saturday, because that's how a traditional week starts and stops in the United States.  I haven't devoted much blog space to the Clan in quite a while (go ahead, check the publication dates of the more recent Wu posts; it's just in your imagination where they seem to own this blog), so I plan on running some reviews for projects that I have gotten requests for over the years (because, yes, a lot of the readers actually do like the Wu-Tang Clan).

Now I'm not stupid; I realize that a lot of you would probably throw yourselves headfirst off of a four-story building before you'll read a week's worth of Wu-Tang Clan-related reviews on a free hip hop blog.  Instead of forcing you all to just get over it already and stop being so goddamn dramatic about everything, I actually plan on appeasing you, as well.  In addition to seven Wu posts in a row, I also plan on running seven alternate write-ups on those same days.  So if you absolutely can't stand the Wu, you have seven other chances to bitch at me regarding my choices and my opinions and my hair or something.  If you do love the Clan, then you get fourteen new posts within the span of a week, which is the closest I'll be getting to a "stunt month" for quite a while.

Afterwards, I plan on taking a rest, which I'm sure you'll understand.  I don't plan on resting for long, but I will need a recharge.

Now, the albums I plan on writing about have already been selected, so although you may leave suggestions in the comments below, I have no plans on listening to any of them at this time.  Just put your trust in me, and everything will be okay.  And besides, you'll get more free content that I keep providing for some reason, so everyone wins.

  2. New Wu-Tang material is always appreciated. I hope The Swarm is included in this lineup -- I wanna hear what you have to say about Cobra Clutch. I love that song. Sigh.

  6. "a lot of the readers actually do like the Wu-Tang Clan" - a lot of the 2 readers... how does that work out statistically? Also, wow. Now that is commitment - both to the clan and the two readers. Try not to burn out too hard. I look forward to the upcoming week and will hope to read most reviews, assuming I allow myself to be distracted from studying for upcoming exams.

  14. Looking forward to it...

    And I do believe that Wolfie's comment above is the first time anyone's used the "taking it to the Max" chestnut on your blog. How your readers resisted for this long, I've got no idea.

    FYI someone in the comments from the Killer Mike album mentioned his R.A.P. collaboration with EL-P. I downloaded that sucker and within 45 minutes I bought it on iTunes. I had kind of burned-out my rap ears and was listening to old '60s-70s Sabbath/Led Zep/Cream/Leaf Hound. Killer Mike brought me back with a vengeance.

    1. Agreed. I'm kind of surprised it took you guys over five years to finally use that.

  18. No, seriously, I'm not accepting any requests for this particular promotion. Prior to Sunday, you will only know one of the fourteen albums I will be writing about (the aforementioned soundtrack). Once again, just trust me.

  23. Can't wait to hear what you think about the Killa Sin track.


    I think at the moment he's one of the best rappers out there. And I'm not joking.

  25. Hip hop beats are used by recording artists and rappers to create a complete song. When the word beat is used with hip-hop it usually refers to that part of the song that is instrumental and does not have any vocal part. Hip hop beats is a layer of instrumental music which usually continues in a loop, for example like the drums continuously playing.
