The LOX's Sheek Louch has answered the fans' calling for a Wu-Block release date by revealing the joint project will finally hit store shelves this summer.
Although an exact date is still to be determined, Sheek said L-O-X/Wu heads could expect him to keep putting out new music as summer approaches.
"What's good my twitter fam..I'm letting out some NEW (WU/BLOCK) sheek/gfk FIRE today called (BARRY).! Get ready album dropping this summer !," he tweeted March 14th.
"@MsieXtrAdOiT ha lol...thanks fam...yeah wait to you hear this (WU/BLOCK) album this summer..I think its what's been missing...!" (Sheek Louch's Twitter)
Outside of their new "Barry" and "Trading Places" records, Sheek recently dropped his Ghostface Killah-assisted "Hands Up."
New WU block! Ghostface Killah from the mighty Wu Tang Clan and Sheek Louch of D Block have linked up for another collabo, this time entitled "Hands Up". We already told you about the Wu-Block, forthcoming joint Wu Tang and D Block LP that Killah and Louch will be heading up, of course alongside other members of their collectives. A few tracks from the two have surfaced and this is the latest, so if this is anything to go by, we're in for a well needed dose of real hip hop. (Soul Culture UK)
Last fall, The LOX's Styles P spoke on contributing to the joint LP.
"It's wonderful," Styles added. "As a MC, it's like 'I'm f*cking working with this n*gga? This n*gga is somebody I listened to in my headphones while I was making my music, and recited his verses. This is a fellow MC. Even if you ain't with somebody in your crew, as a MC, you share the love of words, the love of word play and the art of MCing. It's always a pleasure to work with a Ghostface or Raekwon. Those are two people I played. Those are people that I can say as a music head, those are two people I go to when I need to hear something." (XXL Mag)
In July, Ghostface hinted at an early 2012 release date.
"Right now I'm doing this Wu-Block project," Ghost told DJ Semtex in an interview. "[It's] me and D-Block. Me, Raekwon, [Cappadona] with Jadakiss, Sheek Louch and Styles P. We going to put that together. February, we'll be on the streets. We're gonna start releasing some songs. Probably in May, a Wu-Tang album should be on the streets in May and then in August, I'ma do Blue & Cream: The Wally Era. That's the follow-up to Supreme Clientele." (DJ Semtex)
