Friday's "Fitted of the Week"

Rolled out recently from urban hat/clothing makers Elm is a new line of 59Fiftys. The first model is the Homerun Fitted, which comes in Braves, Dodgers, Giants, and Yankees colors, featuring the Elm "E." The other model produced was the Dead Rabbits (shown below), which comes with "The Dead Rabbits" written in script with the dead rabbits logo underneath. My favorite piece of the whole line is the fire-engine red with only the rabbits as the logo. It's morbidly fly, like the space shuttle Challenger. Go to the site and check them all.

Friday's "Fitted of the Week"

We will resume reviewing albums (and shows) soon.

This week, we have a sharp looking style from Boston's own Bodega. Maybe you've heard of this store from your hipster friends. The store is getting popular enough that it is getting its name into the public's earshot, recently having had a huge sale on sneaks. Rolling out their limited addition fitteds, Bodega has two new designs, available in 100 piece runs for each colorway. My preference is for the navy blue with the white pinstripes. shown below, but they are out of 7 1/2s. Dag.

Ayo the Wu is comin through!

So this could be the second or third resurgence of one of hip-hop's sharpest sets. People really began counting them out after the tension surrounding 8 Diagrams and its lukewarm reception.

It has to be said that the RZA must have some thick skin considering that a few months ago Ghostface and Raekwon were calling him out for his questionable production choices on the latest Wu-Tang and now he is back producing the bulk of Rae's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II and held the boards for the latest leak from Blackout 2, "4 Minutes to Lockdown" featuring Rae & Ghost. At the end of the day, these boys are family.

'Nuff talk. Shut up and rap.

New Wu

This joint is set to be on Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, dropping (according to Rae) on August 11, 2009. The song features Method Man and Ghostface Killah. The RZA and the GZA, along with some other Clan members and various associated acts, have guest spots in the video.

4 Minutes to Lockdown

Featuring Ghostface and Raekwon. Off of Red and Mef's Blackout! 2. Confirmed for May 19.

Other Wu-Tang Projects in the works:

U-God - Dopium (Rumored Summer 2009)
Ghostface with DOOM - Swift and Changeable (Shelved for the time being due to financial troubles)
Method Man - The Crystal Method (No announced date of release)
Redman - Unnamed album (Winter 2009)

Also, GZA, RZA and Raekwon are set to be performing at Rock the Bells this summer. Tickets on sale tomorrow. Get Legs will be there in full effect.
