    Nasty Immigrants came out Summer 96' so 12 O' Clock was probably going to release his album sometime in 97' ....

    I'm sure it got shelved because at that time the Puffy/Shiny Suit era was starting and hardcore hip hop of the 90's was starting to go away.....

    So thats prob why Def Jam shelved it.....

    Still, its pretty amazing that an obscure Wu killa Bee like 12 got a Def Jam deal lol.....

    It's not that amazing really. He is ODB's younger brother, and Def Jam did initially want to sign ODB.

    I see why they shelved this.
    Only a few years ago Hip Hop purists may have felt superior listening to hard core while their less enlightened companions snacked on commercial rap. As Shaolin research began to point out the overwhelming benefits of raw production, true hip hop enthusiasts started turning back to traditional styles. Wu-Tang in particular, has been shown to myriad beneficial effects, from warding off ignorance and poverty to reducing the risk of incarceration and death.

    I already hit both 4th and 12 on twitter and asked for a full version.

    Side note I got 4th to confirm, on twitter, Nice 2 B Important by Cappadonna is produced by Tru Masta. So maybe he will help us out again?

    12 o'clock's twitter page depresses me. then again, so does every other "coulda been" mcs twitters.

    the skit sounds nice, but I'm not about to beg for table scraps. if it hasn't been released yet, then there's probably a good reason for it. and if 12 o'clock is that lazy or doesn't give a shit anymore about his own project, then whatever. it's not worth looking into if you have to pull teeth just for a song

    as a matter of fact, wu tang affiliates haven't been relevant since the '90s, so fuck it. killah priest is the only one smart enough to make moves and do it right

    I dont think 12 knows the high quality of his own music as this sound is what people craved for back then and still now

    Could of pushed major units if dropped it in the late 90's but can still push a few thousand units if he was going to release this today which is better then nothing

    Tbh cant see this coming out but worth pursuing

    Default 12 o'clock album?

    I thought the album was supposed to be out by now? Maybe I missed a post.
