WU TANG CLAN – RUCKUS IN B MINOR

The upcoming Wu Tang Clan reunion album ‘A Better Tomorrow’ now has a release date [December 2], artwork [above] and two singles in the form of ‘Ron O’Neal‘ and new track ‘Ruckus In B Minor’.  Premiered last night on Hot 97, Wu fans will raise a smile as the track begins and ends with vocals from…

WU TANG CLAN – RON O’NEAL

Last night, the Wu assembled in full on The Daily Show and gave us the first glimpse into their upcoming album, ‘A Better Tomorrow’, in the form of a live performance of ‘Ron O’Neal’.  Straight after the show, RZA uploaded shared a CDQ version of the track, and as far as Province is concerned there is good…

RAEKWON – STOP TRIPPING

  At first, Raekwon’s #TBT series seems like an annoyingly obvious punt at social media marketing.  It still is, but how nice is it to associate Thursdays with a Wu-Tang legend and a classic Soul instrumental instead of a social media feed full of irritating, sepia-toned photos of that time someone you know had fun a little while…

RAEKWON – THE LIVING ROOM

REDLIGHT X RAEKWON – GET MONEY

UK producer Redlight took over 2013 with the infectious ‘Get Out My Head’, and now hooks up with Wu Tang immortal Raekwon for ‘Get Money’.  The track takes from the Wu’s classic ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ and removes Rae from his comfort zone with a minimal, altogether more ‘modern’ beat.  Let’s hope this isn’t the last of Redlight’s…

U-GOD – THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER

The latest Wu Tang solo album comes from founding member U-God.  His fourth album is a fairly classic sounding collection, which is where it succeeds.  Attempts at modernity like ‘Stars’, however, only serve to make the album feel more dated.  There are some real highlights though, including title track ‘Keynote speaker’, ‘Fame’, and Method Man’s…
