I think wrong to even place the type of stuff out now in the same sentence with the type of music of the Wu's caliber, there's no comparison no matter how much people claim the new sound that's out now.
It's like actual skill in the music doesn't matter, a large corporation would throw the art of hip hop out the window in a second if they found out they could make money off some wack artist.
It's seems as long as you have some kind of gimmick such as a weak, catchy chorus like Chingy you can get by. So I personally don't let what the mainstream masses dictate what's "in" to judge the Wu's current position. If any hip hop artist sounds good to my ears then thats all that matters at the end of the day.
If there were more people in the current mainstream that I think have surpassed what the Wu is capable of artistically, then I think that would be a reason to think of them as old. But I don't see that right now, it's a buch of songs that are like fast food, they come out, you digest them quick, forget about em and move on to the next one.
Wu songs I'm still playing like they came out yesterday.
