Ghostface Killah and Sheek Louch: Wu-Block
The long-awaited collab album between Ghostface Killah of Wu-Tang Clan and Sheek Louch of D-Block is almost here! After a number of leaked songs, the duo have finally put out a primary single, entitled "Union Square", which also happens to be the NYC home base of SeatGeek. Coincidence? We think not. The duo will hit the road later this summer for a number of collab concerts across the country.
Hailing from Staten Island, Ghostface Killah was one of the original members of the influential hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan. The Wu-Tang clan consisted of RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Ol' Dirty Bastard, and was named the #1 Greatest Hip-Hop group of all time by About.com. As a solo artist, Ghostface Killah has released 9 albums of his own (most recently Apollo Kidsin 2010), with a tenth scheduled for release in 2013. He has also achieved individual acclaim, ranking in MTV's list of Greatest MCs of All-Time and being called by Q Magazine "rap's finest storyteller."
D-Block Records is the overarching label under which Sheek Louch, Styles P., and Jadakiss became popular as The LOX. The Yonkers trio released a multitude of hits and created the Ruff Ryders label as well. As a solo act, Sheek Louch has released 5 albums of his own. His most successful release was 2003's Walk Witt Me which peaked at number 9 on the US charts.
Also on the tour will be Brooklyn rapper Saigon, known for his album The Greatest Story Never Told (2011) and a number of recurring appearances on the HBO show Entourage.
