A few days ago Raekwon released his first single of his new up coming album Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang. The self titled song revisits the old Kung Fu samples that Rza used throughout his career as the producer for Wu-Tang. Overall this track is really good and personally if every track on his album is like this then he will have no problem selling any records but as we have seen with his counter part Ghostface Killah can have a solid album and not even sell. Nevertheless. Raekwon always puts out pretty good content and with his new album dropping in March it will definitely be purchased. Oh, be on the lookout for Supreme Clientele 2.

First off I must say that Im extremely disappointed that Apollo Kids did very poorly in sales and even worse in promotion. I believe this is primarily Def Jam’s fault. LA Reid simply doesn’t care about rap music plain and simple. He has great artists and he simply does not promote them and on top of it that makes me even more mad is that majority of times no promotion equals no sales. Many artist from Def Jam are speaking out and want to be heard, more recently Big Sean spoke on the lack of effort from LA Reid. Also Nas is thinking about leaving Def Jam because they wont put out his Lost Tapes 2 album. Does that make any sense? Nas is arguably one of the best rappers and the record label wont put his work out? SMH. Sorry for rambling on but Ghostface Killah hit the internet with a new video promoting Apollo Kids and surprising many people with a sequel to one of the greatest rap albums of all time. Supreme Clientele. Excited is an understatement for my emotions about this new album knowing GFK he will most definitelykill it. However, a few questions arise, if Ghost drops this new album will it have the same fate as Apollo Kids? If so will it tarnish the “Supreme” name? Lastly, I think best option would be if GFK leaves Def Jam or just release it under his record label Stark Enterprises.

Ghostface Killah Apollo Kids
I must say I was pretty excited about this album. I was courious to see how Tony would bounce back from his sub par last album ghostdini. Apollo Kids is much different though even by the name you can already know it’s going to be some classic GFK. I must say something that I am pretty disappointed in was the insert to the cd there was not much artwork and the normal credits of all the tracks. Another thing I would of liked to see was more features of Wu Tang Clan. The members are getting old and they need to put out material. I also would of like to see RZA produce a track but the new addition of Frank Dukes on three tracks was also good to see. Some of my favourite tracks include Purified Thoughts, 2Getha Baby, Ghetto and Street Bullies. Actually thinking back majority of the album has great material. GFK never has an album that has bad beats and he has a gift to tell stories in the his lyrics that flow extremely well with the beat. Overall Im pleased with the album and i give it 4.5/5.
