most recent tease came in February, when Def Jam released Avenging
Eagles by Allah Mathematics, which featured the tracks “Mef vs. Chef 2”
and “Miranda” from the new Ghost-Chef-Meth collab. Finally, the
trio's full-length effort, Wu-Massacre (Def Jam), hit the racks today. Was the 10-month wait worth
The Judgment: Wu Massacre wastes little time getting to the meat of a rough and rugged hip-hop chronicle of drugs, guns, pimps, hos and horn sections. Iconic rhyme smiths Ghost, Raekwon and Meth deliver one lusty, crime-riddled vignette after the other, leading off with the explosive opening track “Criminology 2.5.” The third follow-up to the 2004 Wu classic “Criminology” and Raekwon's 2009 solo track “Criminology 2,” the 2.5 version delivers stirring, sample-happy East Coast verve highlighted by Ghost's tightly wound intensity, Rae's rugged baritone and Meth's gritty sarcasm.
