The children of some of the members of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan have released their first full length album. The first thing that should probably be said is that you can’t catch lightning in a bottle twice. The Wu-Tang created something historical back in the early 90’s and it is all but impossible to recreate that. Even their own offspring can’t produce that kind of energy that their parents did back in the early 90’s. That being said, these new youngsters are promising though. The rhymes aren’t anywhere near the original Wu-Tang, but I do like that they try to rap like the old school cadence as opposed to the new school method. The beats on here are pretty decent as well. I think they definitely tried to select some soulful production to really bring out the best in them. It doesn’t always work, but they definitely have potential. They also do some reworkings of classic Wu-Tang songs. “Guess Who” is a rework of “Cher Chez La Ghost” and “7.O.D.” is a rework of “C.R.E.A.M.” Both of these are probably the best tracks on the album. Who knows how far this group will go? I hope for great things, but time will tell.

OVERALL RATING: 3 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
