Method Man, Ghostface and Raekwon - Wu-Massacre 3/30/10









01. "Criminology Pt. 2.5"
02. "Meth Vs. Chef II"
03. "Ya Moms (Skit)"
04. "Smooth Sailing (RMX)" (Ft. Solomon Childs & StreetLife)
05. "Our Dreams"
06. "Gunshowers" (Ft. Inspectah Deck & Sun God)
07. "Dangerous"
08. "Pimpin' Chip"
09. "How To Pay Rent (Skit)"
10. "Miranda"
11. "Youngstown Heist" (Ft. Trife, Sheek Louch & Bully)
12. "It's That Wu Shit"


Leaked today. Album is short as hell (less than 30 minutes minus the skits) but it's got some quality music. Gunshowers is easily the best track on there. The beat is ridiculous. Other good tracks are Youngstown Heist, Miranda, Its That Wu Shit, and Dangerous. The whole project was rushed and it certainly feels that way but its worth a download at least.

Where did you find the "Limited Edition" covers?

Yeah, where can I buy those? I want #2 for sure. The regular cover is badass as well.

I think the limited covers will just be scattered in with the rest of them on release day.

Hopefully my Best Buy has all three "Limited Edition" covers in stock on Tuesday.

Went to Best Buy today and picked up all three of the variant covers. Surprisingly, they didn't have any of the regular covers. The inside cover of the booklet is actually the regular cover, so I imagine that if you do find the regular cover it will have one of the variants on the inside.

Nice to hear, I'll stop by BB tonight. So far I'm liking it despite it sounding like a rushed job, like none of them were ever in the same studio, and like they just slapped some random song titles on at the end of the day (really!? THAT'S what you decided to call "Meth vs Chef II"?!). It's a buy for me simply because it sounds like Meth at least partially re-captures some of the magic that made me swing so hard from his nuts 15 years ago (damn, it's been a long time).

Is the retail version longer than the leak as I heard that they cut some parts of the songs out. I would hope that it is longer than 35 minutes.

It's only 29:58 TOTAL, with the 2 skits.

A little stingy with the mics. I'd give it 3 and a half. It does feel rushed and, if they'd have made it like the classic Wu albums from the late 90's (guests all over, more Rza production...), could've been a triumphant return to form, but as is still has some great, albeit sporadic, material.

Most of the songs are at least good. Criminology 2.5 is a great variation of the original Criminology (but where's Rae?). Ghost returns to his storytelling form on "Pimpin Chipp". Streetlife's verse on "Smooth Sailing" is great and Ghost's crew does a good job going back and forth on "Youngstown Heist" but that highlights my biggest problem with the album -there just aren't enough tracks with Meth, Rae, and Ghost together. There are a couple (the great Miranda...), but too many solo tracks/skits in between.

The comic art scheme is pretty sweet, though.
