Anxious Wu-Tang and LOX fans can breathe in exhale as Ghostface Killah has confirmed plans of a Wu-Block compilation album still being in the works.
Aiming for an early 2012 release, Ghost provided a minor update on the much talked about LP.
“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)
In February, Sheek Louch said they already had nearly eight tracks recorded.
“We was on tour, me and Ghostface, speaking of that, get ready for that Wu-Block album,” Sheek promised in an interview with hip-hop reporter Big Chewy. “Nah, it’s [a definite]. Wu-Block, Wu-Block. 100 percent. We like eight songs in right now as we speak.” (NE Video)
Last November, Jadakiss shared his reaction to Sheek’s Wu-Block notion.
“Yeah, yeah, I seen Sheek talking about that on Twitter. I haven’t seen him lately because he’s running around promoting his new album. But I’ll definitely be a part of that. Louch is my brother, Ghost[face Killah] is family, so it’s all love. All they have to do is tell me what time the session is gonna be and I’ll be there to make it happen.” (VIBE)
Sheek alerted fans to the possibility of a joint album in mid-November.
“SHEEK/GHOST FACE. Presents WU/BLOCK the album comming TOP of the year…GET READY!!!,” Sheek tweeted November 19th. (Sheek Louch’s Twitter)
