George Clinton talks about his friendship with ODB and argues Wu is the closest thing to Parliament/Funkadelic

The Wu/ODB convo starts just after the 28:00 mark. Kinda sad they interrupt George’s ODB anecdote to ask about whether they were using drugs. On-air talent in hip-hop media is generally pretty terrible with their choice in questions.

.@Rza Snaps With An Eight-Minute Plus Freestyle on @FunkFlex on @Hot97

Snapping off the top of the head with so many different styles…midway through he switches to kicking the writtens off the phone, but most people wouldn’t notice until they switch camera angles about five minutes in. Ha.

“If Time Is Money” and “Hood Go Bang” From New @WuTangClan Album Get @MethodMan-starring split video

Lots of Wu cameos in this split video featuring two songs from new Wu album “The Saga Continues“, but only Method Man on the bars.  This should show non-believers why he’s one of the most underrated MCs of all time, despite 24 years of consistently quality bars.  Cop the album here if you haven’t already.

.@MethodMan Gives A Pretty Fun Interview with @CThaGod @DJEnvy and @AngelaYee on “The Breakfast Club”

This is a pretty good exchange. Meth also shows off his vocab with words like “colloquialism” and “eviscerate,” in addition to explaining how crossword puzzles enhance his songwriting. He also speaks about his HBO show “The Deuce,” which airs every Sunday night at 9pm EST.

.@MethodMan and @BlackThought Build and Destroy with a Godlike Seven-Minute Freestyle Cipher on @RealSway In The Morning

So many quotables…just click play, I won’t even try to paraphrase the greatness.

24 years of excellence in the culture and Meth is still humble (“I shouldn’t have even rhymed after Thought with that last verse”).

Side note: Big Horse from Nas’ Bravehearts crew intros the freestyle.

.@RealMastaKilla releases a banger featuring @SeanPrice (RIP) and produced by @9thWonder

Masta Killa references a standout line from his verse from Wu classic “Triumph” as he enters the track here (“The High Chief Jamel-Ah-Rief take the stage”).  Super crazy that Sean P says something about being fresh in his casket on his verse. RIP Sean P forever. 9th Wonder bodies the boards. Loyalty Is Royalty drops Friday, September 29, 2017 and can be pre-ordered (or, if you read this on Friday, ordered) here.
