Method Man, Raekwon, Cappadonna & Masta Killa Join Joe Young On A Stellar Remix (Audio)
Last month, rapper Joe Young released a grimy, Dame Grease-produced banger, titled “Crack Babies.” Young was one of the select few, not named Luke Cage, to coax Method Man out to blaze a verse. After releasing his album The Meth Lab last year, the Staten Island MC had been very quiet in 2016.

Some may have wondered how Young, who was born in Manhattan, but spent much of his youth in Germany, was able to achieve the feat, but the reality is Young’s connection with Wu-Tang Clan runs deep. Young was inspired to rap after hearing Cappadonna’s solo material. After signing a deal with Sony BMG, Young released an album in 2005 that contained features from both Cappadonna and Inspectah Deck, and it is reported that it was Ghostface Killah who gave the MC born Tyrone Clay, his Rap name.

Fast-forward more than a decade, and it is clear that Young has kept his relationships with the Wu family well intact. On an alternate version of “Crack Babies,” which has flown under the radar since early November, Young recruited Raekwon, Masta Killa and Cappadonna, once again, to join him and Meth on the Grease track. The result is a full blown Killer Bee affair.
Given some of the controversy that has plagued the Clan over the last couple of years, these types of tracks featuring multiple members may become increasingly rare.
