(Mixtape) - Wu-Block - Episode Zero

Ghostface Killah & Sheek Louch took it back to the street...



The first Wu-Block was a banging album. Wu-Tang and D-Block mixed together on one record was the brainchild of Ghostface Killah and Sheek Louch, they came together to build a street album for the fans of both Camps. When it dropped back in 2012 a lot of hype had been built up with the street singles and appearances by Ghost and Sheek discussing the record and its conception...

"This is a unique street album combination, like carnation milk with oatmeal and a dash of cinnamon. We got killing on lock. It’s like assassination day – nothing but darts being thrown. It’s like Batman and Robin shit. It’s real street shit for the fans. They’ve been thirstin’ for this.” - Ghostface


Last year Wu-Block 2014 was announced with artwork and a track list being released online. This has since been confirmed as false but a new "Hidden Gems" project has been slated to be released some time this year. I made this tape back before the first album dropped. Many of the street singles were crazy at the time but did not make the final album. They have been collected on this tape along with some of the earlier collaborations between Wu-Tang & D-Block members that were the roots to how Wu-Block came about. A couple of remixes and some rare shit have been thrown in the mix alongside interviews with Ghost and Sheek talking about the album's conception, themes and what it means to them. Shit - I know this is pretty late but fuck it, I never had this blog back then so I'm sharing this tape with ya now. If ya don't like it leave it alone. Otherwise here it is my prequel to "Wu-Block 2012". Give it a spin and look out for Wu-Block Hidden Gems coming soon.
