Well i've been hearing a lot of dates on Meth's new album. First it was Nov 3, then it got moved back Nov 10, then i heard that it has been moved to Nov 17. I dont know which one to believe, but what i can believe is the video for Judgment day is PHAT! it even got Rza in the video. in the new XXL, it has a page advertisment for Killarmy's new album, the Swarm, Meth's and Rza's new album. Rza's album is coming out NOv 24, if it doesnt get pushed back. i dont remember what show it was but on MTV last night they showed a clip of RZA being interviewed adn he was wearing his Bobby Digital outfit.
Check out MTV's review show of Belly. It shows a lot of clips adn interviews w' Meth, Nas, and DMX. In the movie Meth is an assasin. the movie came out like last week. Also the soundtrack came out last tuesday, it has that Grand Finale song by DMX, Nas, Meth, and a little of Ja. The soundtrack has Mya's Moving on remix F' Rae and Nore. plus a song by the Wu.
THATS ALL FOR NOW!
Got some newz on the wu. I just finished watching taht Rock and Jock shit and Meth was on the playa team. it was him, Redman, E. Serman, Kevin Garnett, and Camron. Meth did good, i guess.

The joint is coming out 2 weeks after Meth's Nov. 24, the same day as Redmans new joint. Also got some news that Meth is gonna be in that movie Belly with DMX and Nas. Them three is also gonna be in the soundtrack doing a song together and on Meth's new joint.

Now I’m not sure if theres more songs or who in the wu is F’ in this ablum. you can buy
the single at CD Now. I dont know when the video or single will be out though.
I saw the article on RZA in the new Rolling Stone magazine. This is what he said:
On Meth "Meth's higher than ever! He had the potential to be a pop star, but his new album is most underground and gritty work yet. "His lyrical wittines has definately improved. There's a jam called 'Perfect World' that's gonna set a whole new trend in hiphop."
On Ghost "Lyrically, Ghost's new album will strike your ear the way Rakim's first album did. As far as lyric content, Ghost has no competition right now: These are some of the best rhymes I've heard in eight years.... He's gonna put his mask back on and strangle those motherfuckers....His lyrics are intimidating to other MCs; you wouldnt want to say a lyric after he finishes his rhyme."
On INS "Deck's the most underrated rapper from Wu-Tang, but thats all about to change. Deck's album 'Uncontrolled Substances' is the BOMB.... He goes into such detail-like he's got a 35 mm camera filming his whole life."
Himself "The Cure encompasses all the Wu elements, as well as bigger collaborations with Isaac Hayes and Rage against the Machine. Where Bobby Digital is still in the hiphop world, my album is more melodic, more broad."
On U God "U-God's album has a good vibe - it's all PARTY. Wu-Tang is something you listen to, but U-God is making something you can dance to."
On Rae "You know Rae, he's all for the thugs and street....He recruited some new people, like DJ Premier, Pete Rock, American Cream Team, and Harlem Hoodz."
On ODB "The working title for ODB's album is "God Made Dirt and Dirt Dont Hurt."... It's the craziest shit... But you see a conscious side of ODB you havent seen before."
On GZA "He's doin a solo album, as well as a film about underground MCs. He has the same anger in his heart as he had on "Wu-Tang Forever", but he didnt get a chance to do a lot of songs on that album because he's more into chess and smoking weed."
On the WU "The next Wu-Tang group album is coming in the year 2000. We got a lot of the songs. I'm planning to call it 'The Eight Diagram'...And we got a lot to say about the millenium. You aint gonna have to hear any more music after this shit."
