Got it played.

Hmmn.

It's... gonna need another listen. I do like it but it feels a bit meandering; it never really kicks off. There are lots of collaborations and I know that a ton of effort has been put into making all of the samples and stuff. But I can't name a single track where I thought "yeah, now that's good". Off the cuff, it feels like De La has spent a little too much time on factoring in the other artists than just making good tunes.

But, hey, that's just one play. There is enough there to make me want to spin it agin and I will. I'm hoping that I can pay a bit more attention to the lyrics and start getting into it.

Probably my two favourite Wu-Tang songs.

Anybody seen Hip-Hop Evolution on Netflix? It's a three part series tracing, well, the evolution of hip-hop. Lots of great archive footage and an impressive group of interviewees. Well worth a watch, particularly after The Get Down.

That was fun once, and once only.

Tell you what, though, since RTJ3 came out, I've listened to almost nothing but their three albums, plus Killer Mike's R.A.P. Music, and El-P's Cancer for Cure. Can't get enough.

Are you still in Scotland? There's a Glasgow date on the 26th at the O2 ABC that's not on the poster for some reason.

Nah man Eastern Europe, would've thought about jumping a bus to the Austria date if it hadn't been part of a wider festival.

That Roundhouse show would be incredible, but I'm already seeing Ghost in Birmingham that night. :(

Shame there are so few dates, and it looks like they're doing the festival circuit for the summer, so not much chance of a second proper European leg.
