Editorial Reviews

A watershed release in the history of the underground hip-hop movement, Think Differently Music: Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture reflects the convergence of Wu-Tang and the indie hip-hop culture. As ambitious in scope as it is creatively visionary, the album consists of Wu-Tang stylistic sensibility and production paired with some of the finest (as well as commercially viable) underground East and West Coast hip-hop lyricists. Babygrande. 2005.

For the most part he does a very good job, keeping it interesting, and providing a great backdrop for the many different MCs featured here.

I heard a couple tracks off of this album when listening to Pandora and decided to pick it up.

Now to the review: 'Wu Tang Meets Indie Cultre' is a compilation album put together by Dreddy Kruger, an affliate of the Wu Tang Clan and a part time rapper (you might remember his fairly bad verse on 'Graveyard Chamber' from the Gravediggaz' debut album). The concept was bringing Wu Tang affiliated rappers/producers and the best of the hip hop underground together for some crazy collaberations that you can't help but think were made to happen (whoever got GZA & Ras Kass together on the same track, let alone 2, deserves a medal). It's also interesting to read about how each song came to be, which is inclded in the booklet. The result is a unique blend of the signiture Wu Tang feel and the top voices of todays indie rap scene, in an album that anyone who likes the guest list should check out.

This, the newest of many more Wu albums to come, is definitely something different and something that should be added to your Wu-Tang collection. I know that everyone who gets it will be pleased. Bronze Nazareth, the Michigan-born Wu producer, is definitely the "soul" of this album, producing 9 of the 19 songs. His soulful vibe and grimey beats is something that has been missing in Hip Hop. I know that he's going to make a huge impact in the game. La's making a comeback after a few years off radar, can't wait for his album. Of course the vets do their thang, as usual. There are some other newer voices that added to this classic compilation. It's been a while since a credible mass collab was successful. Don't pass this up!!!

Dreddy Kruger Presents Think Differently Music: Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture is an interesting album that blends the talents of Wu-Tang producers and artists with some of the biggest names in independent hip-hop. Just the unique lineup alone made me want to pick this one up. The results vary, but for the most part the album is pretty good. There are about 14 songs (19 if you include skits and interludes), and I have to say that out of 14, 9 are good. There are some very interesting collaborations like GZA & Rass Kass (Lyrical Swords), RZA & MF Doom (Biochemical Equation), and Aesop Rock & Del The Funkee Homosapien (Preservation). Production is handled by RZA, Bronze Nazareth, Allah Mathematics, Preservation, DJ Noize, and Fred One. The album also includes a bonus disc. The bonus disc includes remixes, exclusives, and interviews from a few of the associated artists. It's worth checking out.

The only issue I have with this album is that some of the production is forgettable. I'm not calling it bad, but there are some tracks that you'll forget as soon as they stop playing like "Black Dawn". Aside from a few forgettable tracks, the rest of the album is pretty good.

Wu-Tang Meets Indie Culture is definitely tight. With names like Aesop Rock, GZA, Del The Funkee Homosapien, Ras Kass, RZA, C-Rayz Walz, J-Live, MF Doom, and Vordul Mega, I feel like there was some out of this stratosphere type of potential that was fielded here but it didn't quite mesh like I was hoping it would. But don't let that change your mind about picking this up, it's definitely dope. If you're looking for mainstream alternatives, this should definitely do the trick. Highly reccomended.

Standout Tracks: Listen, Give It Up, O.D.B. Tribute (My Favorite), Still Grimey, Lyrical Swords, Think Differently, Fragments, and Preservation

Dreddy Kruger should be applauded for coming up with the concept for this compilation album, while most hip hop heads dream about certain rappers working together and imagining what type of music would be made, Dreddy comes out of nowhere and drops this piece of quality on us.

Being a diehard Wu-Tang and underground fan this album caught me completley by surprise, I bought this on amazon and when I got it I put it straight into my system, went directly for the first track Lyrical Swords and was greeted by one of my favourate mc's Gza and Rass Kass,definatley was a good indication of things to come.

I must explain that Dreddy Kruger is a Wu affiliated rapper who has been with the Wu since the early ninties and has appeared on various albums such as Gza's Liquid Swords. His views on the state of the current trend of mainstream hip hop parallel my own in that it has become a sorry cliched mess which has quickly become stale leaving many hip hoppers disillutioned with the industry, realising this Dreddy decided to use his connections and put together an album featuring the Wu and other underground artists.

Production on this album is of a high quality, mostly coming from new Wu affiliate Bronze Nazereth who also raps and he is definatley a talent to watch in the future. Other productions are by Rza, Mathmatics and Preservation.

This album is a banger and needs to be checked out by Wu and Underground heads alike, some of the collabarations will surprise you and you will come to thank Dreddy for being able to pull this off.
