Wu Tang and D-Block. What could go wrong?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wu-Block (Audio CD)
This is a strange album. Being two of my favorite groups, I kinda knew it wouldn't be classic. That's what history tells us. Just because two things are great exclusively doesn't mean they will be super great together.
It wasn't executed properly. It was an album of D-block and Wu members, NOT a D-block and Wu-Tang album if you catch the idea. It affirmed what we already know. 1. Both groups members are still MASTERS at this rap thing And 2. Sheek Louch is a beast.
That said, IT STILL IS A GOOD ALBUM!!! Both crews are professionals at what they do. No groups have consistently been as good as these dudes. They just know how to rap well, flows, cadence, pauses. Their second rate rap would be considered classic material to most of today's artists.
It has a bunch of not enuffs/not anys tho.
Not enough GZA: His complex style could have been used more properly
Not enough Styles P: (As in Quality) Like someone already said, these are not his best verses. He has set his bar SO Incredibly HIGH, it must be difficult to maintain.
Not enough Jadakiss: Wu got like 300 members. Jada needed to be on this more.
Not any RZA: his unique production would have thrown this project into a higher orbital.
And of course, ODB is missing.
Method sounds great for the short appearance he has. I mean bring the pain good.
Sheek just continues to hit 400 ft home runs in empty stadiums. His verses are flawless.
Ghostface is equally good. I didn't appreciate him back in the 90s but he is def All-Pro.

Good shit cuz it does have it flaws but it bangs lyrically and beatwise and takes me back to the 90's when shit was gritty.
