The Wu-Syndicate come back with another new project called Omerta. This one is definitely filled with mafioso, street style raps for fans to revel in. Overall, this one sounds pretty good. The bars are decent. They have some good features from Jay Royale, Estee Nack, Ray Luger, and more. The beats are pretty good as well. I don’t think there’s anything really out of this world on here, but it’s still pretty solid overall. It’s definitely a good album for fans of Wu-Tang affiliates. Wu-Syndicate has done a good job of showcasing their style and keeping the brand going. This is a decent album for fans.
This is a quick collection of 6 unreleased songs from the Wu-Syndicate. It actually showcases their talents pretty well throughout. The bars are decent. I wouldn’t say they are anything to write home about, but they hold their own on the mic. It’s definitely more of a sound or a vibe than anything else. You definitely get that whole street mafioso vibe to their bars. The beats on here are a mixed bag. You get some radio joints and some street joints so it’s a good balance of sounds. All in all, this is a good showcase of some of their work.
Myalansky of the Wu Syndicate drops a new solo album and it feels like he is going at everybody on here. The rhymes are pretty standard as you go from song to song. It’s about what you would expect. The beats on here are pretty decent. He’s compiled a decent collection of beats to rhyme over. There’s a lot of anger as he goes at Noreaga, The Clipse, and others on here. On “Fatality” he goes after Noreaga and seemingly everyone involved with the podcast Drink Champs. On the song “The Incentive,” he goes at The Clipse and their manager for being fake drug lords. There’s a lot of accusations and anger on these tracks and who knows what is true. It’s not a bad album, it’s just that there is a lot of angst on here and it could possibly be for no good reason. But that is for the artists to decide.
Half of the Wu Syndicate Myalansky comes through with a new project that is very reminiscent of how an album should actually sound. He definitely has a classic feel to it and it plays through pretty well overall. His bars are decently crafterd throughout and he has a pretty solid flow. There aren’t a whole lot of features as you will only hear from Joe Mafia, Chief The God, Jern and a few others. The production on here is pretty slamming. They are some hard beats that sometimes incorporate some familiar old samples that gives the project that classic kind of feel. All in all, this was a good effort from Myalansky. If he keeps putting stuff out like this, he is definitely on the right track.
Wu-Syndicate is back with a really dope new project. This one is definitely chock full of great rhymes and slamming beats. The production side of this project is probably more of the stand out component. It really starts off strong with some absolutely head-nodding beats. They definitely sound like some raw and gritty beats that are reminiscent of the 90s golden era. Couple these with some mafia-laced rhymes and you have yourself a pretty good project. Highlights include “Old Crew” with it’s fantastic beat and reminiscent subject matter and also the track “Godfather” for saluting the best movie of all time. All in all, a definite strong release from the Wu-Syndicate. They really did a good job with this one.
The Wu-Tang affiliates Wu-Syndicate drop a quick 6 track project in which they apparently had to get some heat off their chests. This project is a bit of a mixed bag. The first track “Syndicate” and the last track “Streets Feel This” are pretty dope. They have great flows on these and pretty decent bars. Hard street bars complement the hard drums on both of these tracks. Now, the rest of the project is complete garbage. Hearing them rhyme over Young MA’s “Ooouuu” track in the form of “TruUuue” is just terrible. It sounds really bad to hear these vets trying desperately to appeal to a younger crowd by grabbing newer tracks and trying to stay relevant. On “Terrence Thornton” they absolutely sound like the hottest dumpster fire around. First of all, why the hell are they going at Pusha T trying to start a beef? Pusha T’s worst record sounds better than any Wu-Syndicate song on their best day. Are they trying to take shots at legend to get hot and get their name in the streets more? It is an age old tactic to start a beef just to get relevant and that is exactly what this seems like. To keep it all the way real, there aren’t too many who remember Wu-Syndicate anymore. That is a fact. Ask people today if they remember. The answer will more than likely be no. Plus the track is littered with auto-tune which sounds god-awful. Again, sounds like they are trying to sell out and appeal to a newer generation of listeners. This is not the way to do it at all. Seriously, lay off the fabricated beefs and trying to sound fresh with new sounds. Do what you do and stay in your lane. Just based on the Pusha T disses on here, I would probably skip this project. It just isn’t worth it.
The Wu-Syndicate give us a compilation of some of their loose tracks. On paper, it doesn’t sound like it would be too much to get excited for, but upon first listen, it’s not too bad. The rhymes are pretty decent throughout. You can definitely tell that Joe Mafia, Napoleon, and Myalansky are focused when spitting bars. I wouldn’t say they have the best flow out there, but there is a precision and attention to detail which can be heard and appreciated. The beats on here are pretty average overall. Those thinking that they are going to sound like classic Wu-Tang beats on here, you are mistaken. Don’t come here looking for that. This is the type of album that is a good one or two time listen through. Any fans of flows will appreciate this one. And the highlight to look for on this project is the song “Sinaloa” which describes El Chapo and his empire. A really dope song all around. Peep this project out when you get a chance.
Here is a really old school Wu affiliate that we haven’t heard from in forever. Of course we will always remember their classic “Where Was Heaven” as going down in history as one of the most realistic songs ever. As time has gone on though, it seems that this crew has lost its step quite a bit if this new project is any indication. The rhymes on this project are pretty weak. You will often find yourself getting bored or having your thoughts drift as the rhymes drone on. The beats shine in a few places but not very many. Some songs even sound like a rough demo cuts. The highlights (if they can be called that) are “Bastards” which we have already heard the beat used by Jay-Z and Beyonce’s on their album. The other highlight would be “Naked Gun” which we have already heard the beat on Reef The Lost Cauze’s Majestic album. Not really a whole lot to salvage on this project. I would probably skip over this one.
