This week Wu-Tang Clan offers up Legendary Weapons, complete with tracks like “Laced Cheeba” , “225 Rounds” and the title track “Legendary Weapons” .
Years in the making, Jay Rock arrives with Follow Me Home. The rapper on the steady rise has been a presence for a few years now, as evidenced by his track “All My Life” with Lil Wayne and will.i.am, which dropped close to three years ago and even delivered a West Coast Mix later on. The Wu and Jay Rock share release date space with Black Rob’s Duck Down debut, Game Tested, Streets Approved. A handful of tracks from the release have leaked, including “Sand to the Beach” and the recent “Get Involved.” In addition, Illus’ For Adam and Jazz Spastiks with Junclassic’s Mode 7 also drop this week.
