Raekwon @ Direct Drive Record Pool Listening Lounge "Shaolin Vs. Wu Tang" [Video & Photos]

On February 21, 2011 I attended the Direct Drive Record Pool Listening Lounge featuring Ice Water/Capitol Records Recording Artist Raekwon and J Records/Sony Marsha Ambrosius. This was Raekwon's second time participating with the Record Pool.The event was taken place as a listening party for both  artist that are coming out with albums in March. Raekwon album entitled "Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang" will be released on March 8th. 

At the event Raekwon stated that he named the ablum after the movie "Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang" and that he called it that because of what his group Wu-Tang Clan goes through on a daily basis as a hip hop group. He said that "this is the science behind the title".  

Raekwon also said that the album has "strong  content" and that this album is for hip hop lovers. He dropped some tracks from his older Wu-Tang albums including a couple of my favorite "Ice Cream" and C.R.E.A.M. He also perfomed some tracks off of his new album "Shaolin vs Wu Tang". 

Raekwon said that he "really worked hard on the album and that "he wanted to take the people back to that sound". I love the track  "Rock n Roll" featuring Jim Jones, Ghostface, and Kobe this track is definitely going to be a club banger. Check out pictures and the entire listening session video of Raekwon at the Direct Drive Record Pool Listening session "Shaolin Vs Wu Tang".

Foxy Brown will be dropping a double cd album "Black Roses" in August or early September. This will be the first and only female rapper to drop a double album in history. The first disc will be hard core hip hop and the second disc will be dancehall rock.

New Music: Lano "One Word"

Okay, so I love this new single by Lano. I first heard it when he dropped me the single on twitter. I listened to it and immediately feel in love with it. I can't wait for the video to drop. Here is what Lano says about his new single "One Word" and ladies you will definitely love it."

"I been waitin for like 2-3 months to drop this. Its the first track I did when I hooked back up wit my homie King Midas. Its crazy cuz it came together in less than 3 hours, I was done the writing before he had even finished the, but it worked and we're proud of if and now im presenting it to you."

"Regardless of if it was earlier or later than expected, its still good music and I couldn't hold it back any longer. And on an even better note, the video treatment is already done, which means the official video should be here in the coming weeks, somewhere closer to the release of "Bond Series Take One". The treatment itself is crazy, reminiscent of a favorite movie of mine, very "James Bond-ish", real clean, real G. Be on the lookout for it all, but in the meantime, enjoy classic music."
