Update: And before the day is over, we get the tagless version of “Wu Block,” the first track off Wu-Tang and D-Block’s planned Wu-Block record. The finished version includes a track-ending verse from Raekwon, who was missing on the previous leak. Listen below.
We have heard a lot about Wu-Tang Clan and D-Block’s planned joint album, Wu-Block, but we hadn’t really actually heard anything from the record. And, honestly, we had a hard time believing it would actually come to fruition considering how many hip-hop super group projects have never actually happened. But the two New York rap crews silenced the doubters today by dropping “Wu Block,” a track that is proves the album is happening and gives us faith that it will be pretty damn good.
It’s dominated by the guys of D-Block as Sheek Louch opens the track and Styles P and Jadakiss tag-team the last verse. But the Wu has sent two of their strongest soldiers (or Shaolin Monks) in Ghostface Killah, who makes a King Kong-like appearance, and the RZA, who provides the appropriately grimy beat. If this doesn’t get you excited for Wu-Block, then you should at least be happy to hear Ghost spitting over a RZA production again.
You can stream the track below. A tagless version is coming soon.
