Those who have a copy of Inspectah Deck's track He's A Rebel better hold on to it because it's not going to be on the album. The track got removed by the label from his upcoming album The Movement due to sample clearance issues.
Inspectah Deck also expressed his feelings towards Ol' Dirty Bastard's signing with the ROC: I'll say it again - on the ground level, outside looking in, that would be treason; mutiny even. But from a grown mans standpoint, my man been out the game just as long as me, three to four years, he's doing a grown man thing. He hooked up with some cats thats willing to meet his needs and willing to give him what he needs right now. Its more power to him. I'm gonna support whatever he do. If it is true he down with the ROC then, hey, Dirty going to do what he gotta do over there. And he's still going to be Dirt Dog McGirt, he's still going be Wu-Tang for life. I guarantee you.
Masta Killa's album will feature RZA (on several cuts), plus all the rest of Wu-Tang (altough U-God is still absent from the album). It will have production by RZA, Mathematics, True Master and others. His single, Digi Warfare/No Said Date will drop on June 17th. It got pushed from May 20th. It will come out through the label Nature Sounds. There will be another single out by Masta Killa this year before the albums drops, which will be late this year or early next year.
The album will contain a song by Masta Killa which features Method Man and Killah Priest recorded in 1995 and produced by RZA. Ghostface Killah and Raekwon are scheduled to hop on an old RZA and Masta Killa track called Grits. This was actually going to be on RZA's The Cure but now Masta Killa is on it and maybe they are even going to cut RZA off because he's already all over the LP. ODB will most likely be added to the track Old Man which features RZA too. Silverbacks and Queen are both produced by True Master.
Cilvaringz recently recorded a track with RZA and Masta Killa. In Love And War is probably going to be the title of this track.
Mathematic's album features RZA, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon, U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, Eyeslow, Buddah, Streetlife, Killa Sin, LA The Darkman, Prodigal Sunn and more. He'll drop his single Respect Mine/Just Can't Wait on May 20th. His album will be called Love, Hell Or Right (Da Come Up) and it should be out August 12th on High Times Records.
Timbo King is still working on his album named Fort Knox. He recently dropped his first single on High Times Records/Nature Sounds: Armored Truck ft. Masta Killa/Thug Corporate.
