    I ain't to Mos and Talib in Houston. It was madness. I was so pissed I missed on Ghost and Rae, Wu-Tangcorp is really lacking in updates. They're supposed to influx my inbox with concert dates!

  • Anonymous

    who gives a fuck? get off the NOSTALGIA dick-- Mos is going thru the motions and Talib is straight ass.

  • Ray Carter

    Which are additional dates? The double locals include dates that were cancelled. I have tickets for the Filmore show and got news it was postponed till November 4th. September 17th at the Filmore? WTWW??

  • Suggamatic

    Fuck, c'mon guys. Toronto is a place too.

    The Mos had CHILD SUPPORT (lots of it) to pay tour. Talib is fucking horrible, still, and Mos-- or whatever his goddamn new Islam name is-- is only doing it for the $$$. Better to paypal him $5 each if ya'll really give a shit, because he doesn't.

  • ShowTime NY

    Great news man, I probably can't make it to Rock the Bells but both shows are coming to my neck of the woods and I'll try to hit both of them.

    • Assassin221

      That Wu/Mobb show was ill. Wasn't very packed in Indy but they kept it live and it was easy to get up front. They didn't really do the whole album thing like I thought they would though. Blackstar postponed so I'll catch them in November.

    probably these oldtimers need money

    • Listen Up

      Some of you clowns just need to stop. I don't think it's a big secret that musicians tour to make money. And believe it or not, you fucking cornballs some people actually still listen to the "classics" and like to hear them live. If you don't think the music is timeless, then you must think skinny jeans are cool. Have you ever been to a jazzfest or a classic rock concert? What songs and albums do you think those artists play? Keep the real alive and remind us of where it all started at and why we love this hip hop shit.

    • Man Tan

      "Black Star" was timeless? I count the time as 30 something minutes and only about HALF that truly hot. "Black On Both Sides" far better, and far better than anything Talib ever managed, or ever will. You want to trumpet this oldies shit, why not do it for jazz, funk, soul and blues too, asswipe?

    • trooper

      @Anonymous....I think you are missing Tim's point. For you to say because they are "old" therefore they must need the money is crazy talk. Of course they need the money but all artists tour to get money. Old & New thats the point. Mobb Deep & Ghostface and Raekwon are rich. They are not broke being around a long time as they have.

    • Anonymous

      @ tim so im right they need money. so what is your message? you aint got to tell me that they are mc's

    • Tim

      Dude. These guys are richer than you. Fact. Second. Yes they need money, everyone knows musicians make money from touring nowadays. Old "timers"... Lol they touring with their classic albums as a set because the shit they made was TIMELESS. And these aren't rappers. These are MC's. They need a crowd to spit to and move and rock. Pretending you can hold it down from a booth can feel so fulfilling for some time only.
