Mathematics

Mathematics has been ridin’ with the Wu since their inception, and although the crew’s loyal deejay may not be credited as a core member, there’s no denying his affiliation with the crew, or his production skills. With several albums to his credit, Mathematics is gearing up for his latest release, The Answer, and in doing so, crafts this banger featuring his Wu brothers Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Method Man and Raekwon for “4 Horsemen.” Now press play and bang head repeatedly.

 

 

I got a crack spot, a G5 I’ve never flown/ I got a shark, a dog with a solid gold bone… – Ghostface Killah

raekwon ghostface

In the run-up to the release of his new Piece Maker 3 (50 MCs Reunion) album on June 9, DJ Tony Touch is liberating plenty of gems from the vault, including this footage of Busta Rhymes and Ol’ Dirty Bastard freestyling back in ’93. The latest unreleased goodie is this Wu-Tang cut, “Unorthodox,” featuring Raekwon, JD Era, Ghostface Killah and RZA. This will live on Tony’s aforementioned LP.

RewindWednesdays

Last Thursday, April 25 2013 marked the 18th anniversary of Mobb Deep‘s sophomore album The Infamous, arguably one of Hip-Hop’s most prized possessions. That said, the Takin’ Mines massive thought a track by track review of their Loud debut would be quite fitting for today’s edition of Rewind Wednesdays. Joining us on our review are Robbie from Unkut, and Doug Cohen of Flud Watches.. hit the jump.

 

The Infamous was a soundtrack for a new era of anti-social, hardcore Hip-Hop, driven by Havoc’s accomplished sampling techniques, tight drum programming and bleak moods, and the heartless microphone techniques of Prodigy at his most ruthless. Outstanding assists from Q-Tip, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Nas made it clear that this was “the realness” personified, in terms of cutting edge street music for 1995. -Robbie, Unkut

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
