Wu-Tang's Method Man, Ghostface Killah, and Raekwon convene to chop it up during a brief session, a one-off. Despite the half-hour length, there are a number of producers on board, including RZA, Allah Mathematics, Ty Fyffe, Digem, Emile, and Scram Jones. Jones’ beat for the closing “It’s That Wu Sh*t,” which samples Fantasy Three's 1983 electro single “It’s Your Rock,” is the only track to not carry that dusty, nostalgic soul crunch. Otherwise, the trio’s collaborators take their cues from the RZA playbook, giving the set a uniform sound. Meth, Ghost, and Rae are not in top form, but they do tear into everything and are not outdone by any of the several guest verses. This is not an indispensable part of the Wu legacy, but it's a consistent, duly rugged, and satisfying one nonetheless.
