Video: Cappadonna – “Pull Your Life Together”

YouTube Preview Image

Wu-Tang Clan’s 10th Official member Cappadonna renaissance continues. Last year he got down with his Wu-Tang comrades on RZA’s “The Man With The Iron Fists” OST on the Wu-Tang Clan reunion track “Six Directions Of Boxing” and with his appearance on the Wu-Tang Clan & D-Block project “Wu-Block”. Above is “Pull Your Life Together” off his upcoming album forthcoming double-CD, ‘Eyrth, Wynd & Fyre,’ which will be released on 2-26-2013 on RBC Records.

I really like that Cappadonna mentions that he doesn’t tip at the strip club while feeling empathy for a stripper.

40. Ghetto Brothers – Power Fuerza

Ghetto Brothers Vest back

Ghetto Brothers’ Power Fuerza is a record created in 1971 by a South Bronx gang that turned into a band. This storied record was reissued this year. You know the Hip Hop story that turns the Warriors into Wild Style?

Something like that.

I think that BARACK OBAMA should have these dudes reform for his inauguration to promote Peace, Love ,Unity and Having Fun.

MP3: ODB, Buddah Monk & 12 O’Clock 1995 Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito Freestyle

MP3: Ol Dirty Bastard, Buddha Monk, 12 OClock – Freestyle (DJ Stretch Armstrong) 95.

The rap internet is remembering Wu-Tang’s Ol Dirty Bastard today who died on November 13th, 2004. Above is a freestyle from ODB, Buddha Monk, and 12 O’clock from the Stretch Armstrong Show in 1995 that I found though mediafire and googling. If this is from your site leave a comment and I will put the proper link. ODB doesn’t actually rap until about 6:45 minutes in but it is raw and worth it.

MP3: GZA’s Lecture at Harvard (via the Crypt)

As reported last week, the Gza met with M.I.T  Scientists and lectured the Black Men’s Forum at Harvard to gain inspiration for his upcoming album. You are probably as curious as I…How did it go? According to the Gza’s publicist:

GZA talked about childhood influences like nursery rhymes, The Last Poets, kung fu movies, particularly Bruce Lee. He also discussed a broad range of inspirations: “the unique complex design of a spiderweb”; sports, though he’s not a fan, led him to write “Queen’s Gambit” in which he uses the names of many football teams; television forensics shows opened the door to “Exploitation of a MIstake.” To the delight of the audience, GZA cited rhymes from the aforementioned songs as well as a couple others.

Wu-Tang Clan’s GZA also calls himself the Genius. No one ever questions that. Put Liquid Swords on around me, and I will break down a zillion insights one can get from that album.

Well, the Genius is preparing to visit Cambridge, Mass to drop jewels and build with some of the brightest minds on the planet earth while gearing up for a new album in 2012.
