Took me a while to get into it – I’m pretty selective about animation. But I was definitely feeling it by the half way mark onwards. Big statement – great first visual clip for OBFCL2 – out Sept 8th.

Wow after 8 months of running this site, we bring you our first WORLD EXCLUSIVE. Last night I was out having a drink with DJ Fricktion (Def Jam UK) and GZA from the Wu-Tang Clan, after the 2nd London show this week. We were talking about anything and everything to do with hip-hop and the Ice-T / Soulja Boy debacle came up, as did the incident in Dec 2007 at Coko in London when a young fan took the mic and screamed “f–k 50 Cent” which the media gave the Genius credit for.
Although there wasn’t tonnes of bad blood, 50 did retort, and now GZA is picking up the hatchet. The Wu-Tang’s head henchman asked if I remembered the Jadakiss diss to 50 (which one??), I said ‘yes’ and he said ‘it’s like that… times ten… I’m going to annihilate 50, he can’t f–k with me lyrically’. I asked if it was the kind of record that would end 50′s career, and he said 50′s career is dead anyway, stating that the recent 100k soundscan for G-Unit’s ‘Terminate on Sight’ album would be a good for amount for a GZA album, but is garbage for one of 50′s. It doesn’t take long is GZA’s company to realise that he chooses his words wisely, and he’s not playing on this one.
So guys, I tried to get an advance of the record, which he said would drop tomorrow, but he said he’d already committed the exclusive to Pitch Fork Media, so shout to them.
This story will be updated in due course. Let’s hope the Liquid Swordsman’s latest cut is as clean and deadly as his previous work, because if it is, it spells trouble for Fif and the team. Keep it locked..!
