Wu-Massacre

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Performers: Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon; Status: In Season

Cleverly splitting the difference between a full Wu-Tang Clan offering and an affiliated solo release, Wu-Massacre boils the group down to three of its most fearsome lyricists. Method Man’s acid sarcasm grounds Ghostface Killah’s tightly wound exclamations, which in turn nicely balance Raekwon’s flinty realism, and the trio’s rhymes are well served throughout by big, soulful beats. Who knew it would be this easy to solve the lack of focus that has plagued so much of the assembled Clan’s later output? B+
