There is now an official release date for the collaborative project between Staten Island’s Wu-Tang Clan and Yonker’s D-Block. Wu-Block will be in stores October 9th, vie eOne Records, if all goes to plan.
Ghostface Killah’s leads the Wu faction of the collab, and likened the project to good food, of course. “This is a unique street album combination like carnation milk with oatmeal. And a dash of cinammon,” said Ghost Deini in a press release. “We got killing on lock. It’s like assassination day – nothing but darts being thrown. It’s like Batman and Robin sh-t. It’s real street sh-t for the fans. They’ve been thirstin’ for this.”
The Wu-Block delegate, Sheek Louch, added, “Other people trying to sell albums together. Those are radio albums. This sh-t is for the street.”
Wu-Block also recently announced a national tour (dates below) to support the release. The album’s lead single is “Union Square” while a new record called “Stick ’em Up,” featuring Sheek Louch, Ghostface Killah and Jadakiss, will be dropping shortly.
