Default Timbo King - The Book of Timbuktu Wu-Int Interview



If all good things do come to those that wait, then we can expect nothing less than the very best from Timbo King’s upcoming “From Babylon to Timbuk2”. This street legend first presented himself on the “Who’s the man?” soundtrack in 1993 (alongside his producer at the time Spark 950). Later in the nineties, as the backbone and head of Royal Fam, Timbo had unreleased and highly sort after projects such as "Black Castle" and the unofficial "Yesterday, Today, Iz Tomorrow" which all stand easily next to the likes of Killarmy's "Silent Weapons", or Killah Priest's "Heavy Mental" as 5 star classics. Now the year is 2011 and Timbo fans can finally start their countdown to the release of his debut album. For nearly 20 years they had to quench their thirst with side projects such as Black Market Militia, solo mixtapes and pet projects from Royal Fam to Maccabeez to his archives and last but not least a vast list of quality features on many Wu (fam) albums.

The wait is close to be over with a planned release scheduled for July. With the cover recently being released plus some promising Youtube videos , the fans’ anticipation has been heavily increasing last weeks. Wu-International staff, all being heavy Timbo fans themselves, is VERY proud to help push the Timbuktu vibe to the next level this week by giving you our exclusive Timbo King interview in which we promise we look at all things Timbo from his very first steps in the industry with Spark 950 to his many (yet unreleased) side projects, from his family ties of the likes of Flava Flav and Popa Wu to his experiences in the Wu family, why this album took so long to materialize and much, much more . So without further ado we bring you one of the most legendary Killa Beez ever : Timothy Drayton aka Timbo King … Enjoy!!!

Wu-International: According to Cilvaringz, there is an epic remix of “Crusaids” with all UK members on it in 4th Disciples archives from the Heavy Mental recordings. Were you on that one too? If so, any memories/anecdotes of that session then?
Timbo King: Yeah, I was on that. You know how the sessions were at that time, back then they used to have three - four weeks worth of studio time. So you can go home, one person would come in: you left, somebody come in. That was one thing about the Wu-Tang: there were maybe 300 rappers, 300 MC’s man, it was like in and out … it doesn’t matter. So if you’d leave, another group would come in. So it was in and out, it was never ending, RZA probably had a ball: “Oh, shit !” , RZA probably heard so many styles, those were the illest too.
yo cilva, hook us up wit dis pliz

Im still craving for a physical copy of Black Castle, that album is too dope to not get an official release.

Wu-International: Let’s talk a bit about ” Wardance” ft The RZA? Is this a new joint or something you recorded in the past?
RZA heard it and he went bananas, he just got on it, he didn’t do no 16 bars. He just came with the hypeness, it’s crazy you gotta hear it. He even did this little Indian chant on it, shouted out all the tribes and stuff like that. That’s what I wanted The RZA to do on it: come in like the head, the High Chief and unite all the tribes. That’s what he did for that song.

Wow that sounds fucking lame, this is exactly how Cilvaringz screwed over Wu fans with 'The Weeping Tiger' when we all though Ghostface Killah, RZA AND Raekwon were all gonna be on it with him turning out to be a intro by Ghost and a RZA interjection about poison knives. Sounds like RZA doesnt have a verse at all, more like Tiger shit where hes shouting out nonsense

Guess you might say the same for Killa Sin too?
Darkim still around and has been, he has completed his EP and album and mixing and mastering them as we speak, so expect it anytime soon.

Honestly, I dont even consider Darkim to be Wu Fam. Last time he was on a Wu release that I purchased was in 1998. Just my opinion, obviously. Peace
