    Default Watchmen Had a Dope Wu Album Within 2 cds of Filler

    I hadn't spent too much time with this double cd but decided to give it a proper listen and this is what I came away with....

    Most of the album seemed like pure filler or just garbage, but among all that bullshit I found 11 tracks and 2 skits that if this had been the album I think I would have held this group in higher regard.

    My tracklist

    1.New Student (Intro)
    2. Assassins feat Cappadonna

    3.Touch of Death
    4.It is Not Too Late
    5.Apocalypse feat Blue Raspberry

    6.It's a Shame
    7.Glorious Fist
    8.Mantis Style (skit)
    9.Everything feat Timbo King

    10.Blood Brothers

    11.Welcome to the Zu feat Zu Keeper
    12.3rd Eye

    13.Knowledge


    It makes you wonder if this was on purpose, like they wanted to make a wu sounding album but politics prevented them from fully doing so. So they just hid it among the bullshit...or maybe I'm just giving them too much credit?

    I never bothered to learn their names. I know one of them was called Black Mask who I heard has passed away but that's about it. They were signed to Wu-Tang Management, nothing to do with Chambermusik.

    members are/were called BlackMask, The Cipher, PRO, 7th 7ign, and Prox

    BlackMask (RIP) and 7ht 7ign have some solo stuff out that I'm aware of (youtube that ish)

    some good tracks on the album, some mainstream songs too that didn't succeed as much

    I remember thinking the same thing (mostly garbage with a few bangers). I also remember I did a wu mashup mix back in the day and I used that same into...thinking those fuckers copied my shit
