Wu-Syndicate - Where Wuz Heaven

Who remembers this one?

Wu-Syndicate is a rap group from Virginia consisting of Joe Mafia, Napolean and Myalansky (who has named himself after the real life gangster Meyer Lansky). They were originally called Crime Syndicate but changed their name to Wu-Syndicate when they signed to Wu-Tang Records and became Wu-Tang Clan affiliates. After debuting on the compilation Wu-Tang Killa Bees: The Swarm in 1998, their self-titled debut album Wu-Syndicate was released in 1999 on both Wu-Tang Records and their own label Slot Time Records. The album was, like most releases from Wu-Tang Clan affiliates during this time, moderatly successful in sales. Soon after the release there was a dispute of an unknown origin between the group and Wu-Tang Records and the group have since changed their name to The Syndicate to rid itself of the affiliation. However, they still had an active publishing deal with RZA. Joe Mafia released his debut solo album This One in 2002 and founded his own label called 58 West Diamond Street Records. Another group album is planned once Myalansky and Napolean are finished serving unrelated jail sentences and Myalansky also plans to finish his first solo album which he began work on before being incarcerated. Napoleon is currently working on his solo album, Kingpin Wit Da Inkpen, which is set to feature The Clipse, Ghostface Killah, Nicole Wray, Jim Jones, and more, along with his Syndicate comrades...

Jordan V - Wolf Grey

"First released in 1990 the Tinker Hatfield designed Jordan V is for many the most collectable of all the Jordan series. The aggressive styling is allegedly based on the WW2 Mustang fighter plane, including the serrated ‘teeth’ decal on the front of the sole. The design includes numerous features that were aimed at improving Michael Jordan’s performance even further, such as spring loaded lace-locks and Air cushioning, as well as some brilliant aesthetic additions such as a reflective tongue and the famous clear sole unit."


They're out now so you better move fast.

Elzhi - Elmatic

"The 10-track offering—which finds the Detroit lyricist paying homage to Nas’s classic debute LP, Illmatic—was produced entirely by Will Sessions. Fellow D-Town MC Royce da 5’9” and Illmatic beatmaker Pete Rock also make appearances.
Fans can pre-order limited edition physical copies of the disc and other merchandise at"

This dropped the other week but I've been to busy to listen to it. I finally had to time to give it a once over and I can say it's got some strong tracks on it. I'm a huge fan of Nas' classic debut so to hear a new take on it is always interesting. It's still very similar to Fashawn's ode to Illmatic that came out a while back but on the whole I would say El's interpretation edges it with it's reworked instrumentals and re-imagined concepts.
