“It’s fair enough from what I’ve seen,” Badmon told Angie. “I like what they do. I like how they do it. The only thing about TV is that it’s not a clip. There is no reading. You just have to trust. You have to perform at your best and hope they pick the right take.
Last October, Wu-Tang: an American saga has been confirmed to be a 10-episode series to air on Hulu. Joey tells Angie he’s not sure when it will air.

In May, Sacha Jenkins directed and co-produced (with the Clan) the quartet Microphones and men documentary on the history of the Wu-Tang Clan. It included interviews and previously unseen archive footage. After its Sundance debut, the series is available on Showtime. The team followed up with a seven-track project, including four new songs from multiple members.
MC / producer Inspectah Deck is currently working on her first solo album for almost a decade. The MC invited producers to sample using the TrackLib database to submit songs. The next LP will draw exclusively from those submissions on the service endorsed by Prince Paul, Erick Sermon, Statik Selektah and others. Producer T-Minus allegedly used the sample database to legally authorize a sample of J. Cole’s “Middle Child”. He came out for the last time Manifesto in 2010. Earlier this year, he and his CZARFACE team (7L & Esoteric) teamed up with the Wu brothers Ghostface Killah on CZARFACE meets Ghostface.
Ghostface Killah and CZARFACE released their joint album. Listen now.
Beast Coast consists of Pro Era, Flatbush Zombies, and The Underachievers.
