Wu-Tang Clan Empties All 36 Chambers For Logic. This Collabo Is Nuthin’ To F Wit (Audio)
Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let AFH fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than it’s ever been. Not only are we able to go back and listen to all of our favorites, at the click of a button, there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlists with recent music—songs that have been released within the last year or so. We update it regularly, so, if you like what you hear, subscribe to follow us on Spotify.
Although Logic’s chart-topping Bobby Tarantino mixtape series has been his focus for the last few years, his Young Sinatra joints are what gained him his following and got him signed to Def Jam in 2013. So, it makes sense that he would bring the fourth installment of the series, Young Sinatra IV (stylized as YSIV), into his major label discography. To celebrate his success, the MC/producer achieved what few solo artists in the last 25 years can claim.
This 28-year-old Maryland native has done something any Hip-Hop Head can appreciate — he got every Wu-Tang Clan member on one track titled “Wu Tang Forever.” To be precise, he got every living member of the Clan, as well as the late addition to the crew, Cappadonna, and U-God’s protege, Jackpot Scotty Wotty. The song is produced by Visionary Music Group’s 6ix and naz. Logic leads the track, before Ghostface clutches the mic with a trademark verse. Raekwon chefs up the track next, with RZA batting third. M-E-T-H-O-D Man drops a slicing verse, with the Rebel I.N.S. coming in after. Cappadonna follows, before Scotty, U-God, then Masta Killa. GZA closes out the historic moment.
The Clan rarely all hop on one track, even on their own albums. They all got together for “Triumph,” the lead single from Wu-Tang Forever in 1997, but ODB was on the intro and ad-libs. Notably, Drake named a song “Wu-Tang Forever” five years ago on Nothing Was The Same. U-God confirmed that Wu hopped on a remix. However, that track never surfaced.
In addition to new Bobby and Wu-Tang Clan, the playlist features recent music from Bun B, Run The Jewels, Mac Miller, Buddy, Missy Elliott, Anderson .Paak, Busta Rhymes, Buddy, Action Bronson, Childish Gambino, Drake, Nas, Jay Rock, Westside Gunn, Kanye West & Kid Cudi, Pusha-T, Black Thought & 9th Wonder, Dave East, Royce 5’9 (and his group PRhyme), Dr. Octagon, Phonte, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Black Milk, Eminem, Lute, Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa, Brent Faiyaz, Freddie Gibbs, CyHi The Prynce, Saba, Rapsody, Sylvan LaCue, Evidence, Big K.R.I.T., Nipsey Hussle, and a host of others.
