Another week has gone by, what a nice week too. Then I remembered that G.O.O.D Friday was coming and then I was like, “yay, maybe this will be the week these song collections get redeemed.” I should have not had such high hopes. I won’t even won’t go into my full speech because it’s the weekend and why send out negative energy. Go enjoy your weekend, have some fun, forget the sadness in the world and dance! If you like the song enjoy it, but I feel like I’m one of the few people out there in the blogosphere who is not taken by these songs. Also, why do I keep writing about these songs? Well, why not?
Here is the latest leak off of KRS One and True Master’s project Meta-Historical set to drop on Aug.31st. After listening to this you will see why very few emcees have ever challenged KRS One.

There’s a reason why Metallica has never full recovered after the documentary Some Kind of Monster showed the band at their most childishly neurotic as they underwent group therapy. In this age of Twitter-access, we think we want to know everything about our stars. But if we really knew the truth, it’s often a turn-off.
So what to think about the preview for Wu-Tang Revealed, this official doc shot mostly by GZA over the years, that seems to imply that the Wu have spent much of the past decade standing around arguing in the kitchen of their very nice houses.

RZA will play the title character, a blacksmith who forges weapons for the inhabitants of a village in feudal China. They are forced to defend themselves, and before you know it, everybody is kung fu fighting.
Roth will produce with Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman. RZA will also produce the soundtrack. The film shoots in September in Hong Kong at a budget under $20 million.
With all the sequels to classic hip-hop albums being released and planned lately, this one actually doesn’t come as much of a shock. That doesn’t mean that I didn’t nearly spew water all over my monitor when I read that Liquid Swords 2 will be “produced by The Abbot.” Can he possibly mean the whole album? Even Rae only got 3 tracks for OBFCL2. If he means what I hope he does, there’s no reason why GZA’s next album shouldn’t be able to top what Rae accomplished last September. According to RZA himself, LS2 drops this fall.
