The Popstream Ain't Nuthing ta F' Wit
This has been kind of a Wu-Tang month for me. Not only did I finally get around to seeing the film that gave their classic debut its name (it being one of those odd but great kung fu movies where the training sequences are the best part of it), but I got ahold of Enter the 37th Chamber, an album by Brooklyn funk band The El Michels Affair that replicates (and kind of mutates) classic RZA productions from various famous Wu-Tang group and solo records. Throw in the recent debut of "New Wu", the first single from the long-awaited Raekwon's Only Built for Cuban Linx II (which has a release date of August 11th, thus putting the vaporware-album onus back on Dre's Detox), and it's kind of difficult not to get at least moderately geeked out. So here's a few clips to keep that going.
