PR: Wu-Block Is Here! Wu-Tang Clan and D-Block Join Forces for New Album

(New York) -- Two of hip-hop’s most storied groups, Wu-Tang Clan and D-Block, will collaborate on a new album to be released through eOne Music. "Wu-Block," the new street album, will be released on October 9th, 2012 and features Ghostface Killah, Sheek Louch, Method Man, Raekwon The Chef, GZA, Jadakiss, Masta Killah, and Styles P.
Ghostface says, "This is a unique street album combination like carnation milk with oatmeal. And a dash of cinammon. We got killing on lock. It's like assisination day - nothing but darts being thrown. It's like Batman and Robin shit. It's real street sh*t for the fans. They've been thirstin' for this."
Sheek adds, "Other people trying to sell albums together. Those are radio albums. This shit is for the street."
"Wu-Block" mixes the rap style, lyrics, beats, imagery and ideology of the 9 member Wu-Tang clan with the flow, underground star power, hard hitting bars, street story telling and bass rattling sounds of D-Block.
The first official single off the 12-track album, "Union Square," features Ghostface Killah and Sheek Louch. Available on iTunes, the drum heavy single is named after the landmark New York City intersection . Listen to "Union Square" here - http://soundcloud.com/eone-music/wu-block-union-square-sheek . The next single, "Stick 'em Up," featuring Sheek Louch, Ghostface Killah and Jadakiss, will be serviced to radio shortly.
"This is a huge chapter in the story of New York Hip Hop," explains eOne president Alan Grunblatt. "To have two of rap’s biggest groups combining talents means groundbreaking music that fans can enjoy."
Additionally, Wu-Block will tour across America, headlining dates and performing at select Rock The Bells shows.
Welcome to the new week everyone. This past weekend marked a first for me - my first Comic-Con. It was a moderately sized one in Trumbull, CT, going by the name ComiCONN, but there was no shortage of people in costume and cool things to see. I'm currently going through all the pictures I took and will have the best of the best up this week. One photo gallery that's already up is from Friday night's Steep Grade show in CT. There was no stage at the space at which they were performing, so many of these pics are very up close and personal. This week's update also features an interview with Lord Micah of the funk band Big Ol' Dirty Bucket, a party inspired Vid Pick from J.Mandela, and, of course, a fresh edition of Pop Shots with your daily minimum requirement of snark.
If you dig any of these features please feel free to forward this email to a friend. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, and enjoy!
Pop Shots - Seeing Things
Welcome to your weekly dose of pop world musings. Covering all things pop culture, this week Pop Shots is hitting you with thoughts on everything from Taylor Swift seeing red, to Bryan Adams exposing himself, to Green Day’s view from the top, and since it’s Pop Shots you know everything is seasoned with a little bit of attitude.
Lord Micah Brings The Funk w/ Big Ol' Dirty Bucket
Funk music has long been a staple of hip-hop. Some of hip-hop’s greatest songs have been the result of emcees rhyming over classic funk samples. The relationship between funk and hip-hop, however, is not completely one sided. Some funk bands have begun incorporating emcees into their musical mix. Boston based Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket is one such band, as two years ago they invited emcee Lord Micah to join the now ten piece group.
On the heels of Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket’s recently released self-titled debut album, I caught up with Lord Micah, who goes by Big Daddy Disco in the group, to find out about funk’s generation crossing abilities, what Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket is like live, and which member of the P-Funk All Stars once joined them on stage. Lord Micah also discussed why he prefers being in a band to being a solo artist, and why doing it all yourself can sometimes be a recipe for disaster.
