    better yet...... WHAT HAPPENED TO TRUE MASTER???????????????
    such an amazing producer, and during a time in hiphop where the market is flooded and producers are more popular and more in demand than ever.... and he's nowhere to be found????? the producers are stars themselves now. he could've gotten rich over the past 5 - 7 yrs.

    i wanna know what happened to him, whats his situation w/ WU, and why he never blew up and became a really sought-after producer.
    he's worked w/ very few artists outside of wu. WHY?????????

    and think about it....... he did a bunch of KILLER, KILLER tracks on:
    "T2: judgement day"
    "the pillage"
    "sunz of man - last shall be first"
    "uncontrolled substance"

    .... and then drops off the face of the earth?!?!?!?! SOMETHING HAPPENED. THAT is an amazing track record. he laced meth, cappa, and INS w/ a ton of bangers for those cd's, and they stop fucking w/ him as they continue to make music??? i'll never understand that.
    and as for meth, i dont care what def jam said or waved in front of me, i'll never be able to comprehend how he can let them talk him into using diddy for "tical 0", and NOT use true master at all. i mean, 2 + 2 will always = 4, but that "tical 0" shit will NEVER add up!!!!! meth sold his soul for a few more sales (listen to his interviews about tical 0).

    other than that, true master has popped up here/there w/ only 1 track... mainly thanks to rza ("fast cars", "take sword 2", "yall been warned".....)

    ...and of course, same thing goes for 4th disciple.
    WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! how can they have these amazing, legendary producers just sitting there, and opt to use these BS, commercially popular, known in the industry, used by every single so-called MC out there, producers???????

    ^^ co-sign, True Master is one of my favorite producers actually.. all the way back from his work with GangStarr foundation and "Brooklyn Zoo", "Fish" up to Masta Killa's album. It was real good to hear him on "Pro Tools" in '08 with the probably illest joint on the whole LP.. he also appeared on the first "Afro Samurai" with lyrics too but he definitely needs to drop something or go out and work with some talented cats.



    daily updates: news, articles, reviews, the best compilations on the net. that true skool street hop!

    r.i.p. Johan D, Kaddu, Ricke a.k.a. "Slick Rick" and the rest of the fallen soldiers - you'll never be forgotten!

    Wu members walk away from their Wu-Tang Productions contracts

    Wu-Tang Productions ceases being an entity and the members all scramble for their own production

    all Wu labels (Wu-Tang Records, Razor Sharp Records imprint on Sony, 36 Records imprint on Loud) fold

    True & 4th are left to fend for themselves when keyboard beats are huge

    after the Supreme Clientele inspired Blueprint hits, sample's back in vogue but people are gunning for cheap imitations like Heatmakerz over the real deal

    plus 4th being back out in Ohio put him out the loop even more

    damn it; i was seriously looking forward to this

    that beat he did for black rob was amazing too; you always know what you're getting with true master, dusty drums, big bass, hot buttered soul...is he too busy schooling people about the windsors?

    translated: True wanted to be paid, Babygrande thought otherwise, True walked...

    if the shit is recorded hopefully M80 or someone affiliated with a label will scoop it up to release it
