As far as im concerned a new wu album without Ol DB in it just wont cut it. he completes the balance that wu once had which was hard and a touch of humor courtesy of Dirty. Man the last few Wu albums really bored cuz of the lack of personality and chemistry in them. For example it is the little things that old dirty did that made track illl like in the beginning of Triumph and the chorus for duel of the iron mic. Even if you replaced him with Cappadonna who id rather have than Streetlife their still wont be that missing personality that made the first wu album incredible. id really hate to admit it but i really believe their era if completely gone. Just look at evey album after forever minus Supreme Clientele. They where poorly produced and sounded so out of place. i guess the word is generic. all i do these days is listen to their old work cuz its timeless and remember when it was about the Wu!! peace love and right ya'll.
