    Default do u think the wu have sold themselves out

    i know this may sound controversial but i reckon from after the w album the wu have not been the same exception masta killa, i mean stuff they din have to release like nail varnish and shit its ridculous, i feel this is how the wu went hay wire if they just concentrated on their music and nuthin else they would still be the best in the game
    and its like the stuff they release nowadys is like they dont put any effort into it and just release an album for a money making scheme what ya'll think

    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

    Just to add to what Wade has said, (and I may be speculating) some of them had to move label and in the process they went from wanting to be on small labels where they sell less records but get bigger cuts to being on bigger labels where they get smaller cuts in the hope of selling more. Some offcourse went the small label route with the intention of using their reputations to notch up sales.

    But in all honesty I think Ghost and Meth perhaps compromised (but not necessarily sold out) their music whereas Rea, Deck and co pritty made the made albums on past reputations so i don't know about selling out. I would however agree with anyone who said they were lazy though

    you can link all of wu-tangs problems to arrogence and bad business decisions.

    But they have enough producers and behind the scene staff to take care of all of them. Its just that they are choosing not to do so. Meths not the only one, imagine Deck, Rae or Ghost releasing consistently instead of half assed albums that are so long past it they are just corny.
