A Wu-Tang Summer

I had a little time to kill so I put together a Wu-Tang summer catalog. Throw these burners on at the BBQ.

1. The Sun (White Label 12"): Ghostface feat. Raekwon, Slick Rick & RZA
2. Love Is The Message (Yin & The Yang): Cappadonna feat. Raekwon
3. The Afterparty (Tical: The Prequel): Methon Man feat. Ghostface
4. Save Me Dear (The Pretty Toney Album): Ghostface
5. Rock Steady (Tony Touch: The Piecemaker 2): Raekwon feat. U-God & Method Man
6. Nutmeg (Supreme Clientele): Ghostface feat. RZA
7. Heart To Heart (Immobilarity): Raekwon
8. Child's Play (Supreme Clientele): Ghostface
9. Whatever (No Said Date): Masta Killa feat. Streetlife & Prodigal Sun
10. '97 Mentality (Wu-Tang Killa Bees: The Swarm): Cappadonna feat. Ghostface
11. Criminology (Only Built For Cuban Linx): Raekwon feat. Ghostface
12. Can It Be All So Simple (Enter The 36 Chambers): Wu-Tang Clan

I didn't intentionally include so many tracks with Ghostface but all he does is find superb tracks to jump into...Stapleton Project's finest.

This 1 Remix

O.k. I didn't think Amerie's "1 Thing" could be topped but Siik's sublime remix of this already incredible cut stamps a whole new vibe on it. It takes the frenetic energy of the original and completely strips it down to a more soulful groove. I'm lovin' this one.
