Thun said it best… it’s now more like Wu-Weekly, but never Wu-Weakly.
Some of my favorite reggae remixes and both happen to feature Method Man. Also a great Wu-Tang reagge remix project by Chris Macro can be found HERE in case you missed it a few years ago. RZA remix on “Scalp Dem”, that gritty Wu sound from 1994.

Traffic continues to give hip-hoppers a reason to still buy CDs. Last month they dropped the remastered version of Al Tariq's God Connection and now on 9/14 they'll be reissuing a deluxe box set for Mecca & The Sound Brother. Traffic stays winning. –Philaflava
When Substantial was recording his debut album, â€¦To This Union a Sun Was Born, he was driven by adversity. The Maryland native was struggling to balance school with a budding music career, was homeless at times and still reeling from having buried more than ten friends and family members.
â€œI met Substantial through PackFM and Mecca during the final throes of the NYC underground sceneâ€™s heyday,â€ says QN5 founder and artist Tonedeff. â€œThey were all in a group together called Dominion and I had seen them. Immediately, I was blown away by his wordplay and delivery.â€ Tonedeff, Substantial, PackFM and Session would go on to form the group Extended Famm and release the critically acclaimed 2002 album Happy F*ck You Songs.
LMNO – This EP Reminds Me Of ’93 (2004)
This is a somewhat obscure ep from 1999. Not sure how many of the tracks are exclusives but it’s a nice lineup. It was co-produced by Cas and Omne, who had his hands in a number of other mid/late 90’s philly releases. I really dig the 2nd cut ‘the meanin’ and ‘so rich’ by Ryan Banks. I have no idea if Ryan Banks did anything else, the track has grown on me. Also of interest are the 2 tracks by P.H.A., aka ‘Power Hittin’ Artist’. I became aware of him when Al at Crates Of Ag posted his 1st two singles. For those who slept, you can check them here –
Alkuttraz I hope you’re reading man, this is some later material I hope is new to you. Here’s a link for this cd –

9. (4:12) last emperor, kamachi & dj jay-ski – nile nutrition
The weak link in the chain is number nine, but at least it’s last. Altogether this is a head nodding compilation that’s not well known but entirely worth having. Buy the cd if you can find it, I picked mine up for 3 bucks. Enjoy!
Here we have a rare cd single from Pretty Tone Capone of Mobstyle(Azie, Whimp Whop, Gangsta Luke) released in 1992. The two titled tracks are Case Dismissed and Kidnapped. There’s a hidden track at the end, Gangster Shit Pt.2. Enjoy!
