Synopsis

Amazon.com
Wu-Chronicles compiles 14 tracks of previously released Wu-tinged madness, along with a pair of new tracks. Most of these feature Wu family members as guests on tracks from the Notorious B.I.G. ("The What," featuring Method Man), Mobb Deep ("Right Back at You," featuring Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Big Noyd), and Tha Alkaholiks ("Hip Hop Drunkies," featuring Ol' Dirty Bastard). There are also killer cuts by Wu stalwarts such as Genius/GZA, Raekwon, RZA, and Inspectah Deck. Though some hardcore fans may deem this release redundant because most of these tracks have seen the light of wax before, they will still want to own it for the convenience factor, the ultra-cool artwork, and those two new offerings: "Latunza Hit," by the Wu-Syndicate, is an infectious downtempo track infused with a solid bass groove and misty-mountaintop atmosphere, while "'96 Recreation (Demo)" features longtime Wu cohort Cappadonna along with RZA and Ol' Dirty Bastard, all three dropping heavy verses over an eerie, rumbling beat. --Spencer Abbott

"Well, all the songs are onpoint thats why i gave 5 starts but i have and own every single song here... My favorites ? Genious "cold world" and mobb deep's "right back at you" the best two tracks there but the rest is tight as well! Worth your money ? yes, if you haven't heard early wu and want to get schooled buy it but if your hooked on that ludacris trash along with ja rule,nelly,gay z,fabulos,bowow...Then, don't even bother ! This is strictly for long time fans or who ever feel true hip hop... Don't foget where it came from, son !!!"
