Ghostface’s grit and tenacity unrivaled many in the 90’s. His in-your-face demeanor was beloved by everyone in hip hop. Solo projects like Ironman and Supreme Clientele thrusted him into conversations regarding New York emcees. After touring with Raekwon recently, and dropping Twelve Reasons to Die II, he’s prepping to drop Supreme Clientele Presents… Blue & Cream: The Wally Era. Currently, he’s quickly becoming a big product in the marijuana industry with his hash-oil, Wu-Goo.
GZA was a lyrical specimen. The man surgically knifed his way through tracks with his innate wordplay. His 1995 album, Liquid Swords is considered his magnum opus and one of the best releases ever in hip hop. GZA has been under the radar since his last release Pro Tools, which dropped in 2008. He’s currently prepping his first release in eight years with Dark Matter.
Another lyrical monster of The Wu, comes in the form of Raekwon. The Chef relished in whipping up lyrical masterpieces for his avid fans. His album Only Built For Cuban Linx pervaded New York streets because of its flawless storytelling. When he returned with the sequel, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Pt. II, he showed everyone that his sword wasn’t at all rusty. Last year, he released his first album in four years with F.I.L.A. He also toured with Ghostface and made several notable stops, including sets at Coachella.
