I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure I gave this brother one of his first blog posts back in March 2o12 and followed it up with two more that year. I’m very proud to see Isaiah Rashad signed to Kendrick Lamar’s TDE imprint and still keeping his work true to self, which was something I liked about his music from jump.
You know I’m excited. I don’t know if you all remember the loosey “November Rain” that Bronson dropped a while back, but apparently Bronson and producer Party Supplies decided they wanted to drop Blue Chips 2 on the first day it rained in November and here it is on November 1st. Nothing like new Bronson on payday.
After what seems like forever, the Punch Line King is back with DJ Drama for the first of Banks’ All Or Nothing series. Looks like people are trying to get those dope mixtapes out before 2013 comes to a close.
I knew the Wu had changed up when Raekwon was featuring on Justin Beiber songs, but this takes the cake. Wu-Tang has recently been confirmed to have a collaboration in the works with one of the rappers who personifies the kind of rappers RZA was railing against on the intro skit to the epic Wu-Tang Forever.

Inspectah Deck took to Twitter to disagree with the original song, which Wu-Tang is expected to remix:
After listening to the @Drake song, I agree with u… It is in no form a tribute to WU and SHOULD NOT wear the title Wutang Forever!
