The trend of supergroups continue: But what do you call it when two already established groups join forces -- a super duper group? Either way two teams for the East have decided to clique up and hit the road in just a few short weeks.

Wu-Block is a hip hop collective that combines D-Block with ... can anybody guess? Yep. The legendary Wu-Tang Clan.

Wu-Block, a supergroup consisting of members of D-Block and Wu-Tang Clan, has announced a full U.S. tour kicking off August 1st in Poughkeepsie, New York. The group will play Philadelphia, New York, Atlanta and Las Vegas among other spots over the course of a month and a half.(Hip Hop Blog)

Although the name is Wu-Block, don't expect to see all 87 members of the Wu-Tang at a show in your city ... at least not yet. So far, only Ghostface and Sheek of The Lox have been confirmed.

Other members such as Jadakiss, Styles P, and Raekwon are expected to join in, though only Ghost and Sheek have been confirmed as participating members.(Complex)

Tell us: What rap groups would you love to see hit the road and perform together? State Property, perhaps? If you're a fan of the former Roc-A-Fella cronies, take a minute to check out this track, featuring members of the hardcore Philly crew. The song will be featured on Sigel's upcoming album, This Time, due in stores

Beanie Sigel may be headed to prison for two years this September, but he is still preparing to drop his new album This Time August 28 on Ruffhouse Records, and "The Reunion," featuring his State Property partners in rhyme Omillio Sparks, Young Chris, Peedi Crakk, and Freeway, is definitely going to be one of the LP's highlights. Over a sample of Sly and the Family Stone's "You Can Make It If You Try," Sigel and the State Prop Chain Gang pass the mic and get busy, reminiscent of their Rocafella Records days.(Complex)

Check out the track here and peep the studio footage of the State Prop fam rocking out to the new track.
