Hip-Hop fans should be excited for this new Wu-Block album after hearing “Stick ‘Em.” Ghostface and Sheek spoke to FUSE about how the album came together after a suggestion from Sheek in a dressing room, and how every single member of the Wu will be on. Even Cappadonna and Masta Killah! The album will represent that gritty NY street rap that’s been missing in the game for a minute.
They also both give it up to newcomers like J. Cole and Action Bronson, saying they are fans of them, in terms of the new generation of rappers on the rise.
The Ruff Ryders, WHAT!?! THE RUFF RYDERS! The legendary DJ Mister Cee held his weekly “Best Of Tuesdays” series on Hot 97 earlier today and shocked us when he did an tribute set for the Ruff Ryders. Surprisingly, instead of having dark man X as the main focus in this set, the entire crew got love throughout the entire 60-minute Throwback At Noon mix as the finisher gave us a walk down memory lane playing all our favorite Ruff Ryders hits and some original versions of rare songs.
DMX recently spoke with the Breakfast Club last week about his desire to do another real Ruff Ryders album with the original cast. After listening to this mix from Mister Cee, we would really like to see that re-union album happen ASAP!
