The LOX’s Styles P and Sheek Louch have provided updates on their forthcoming D-Block meets Wu-Tang Clan collaboration LP, Wu-Block.
Although the LP will feature all parties, Sheek the prominent emcees featured on the project will be him and Ghostface Killah.
“Me and Ghost doing this Wu-Block album,” Sheek said in an interview. “It’s focused on me and Ghost but we got everybody on that muthaf*cka. Styles, Jada; we got everybody from RZA, to Rae to Meth, to my team.” (XXL Mag)
Styles also took time to elaborate on what hip-hop heads can anticipate.
“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)
Last July, Ghostface Killah 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)
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)
