Wu-Tang Killa Beez: The Sting
our score: 2.5 out of 5.0
The RZA returns,
producing another album showcasing various Wu-Tang projects. Some
fit the traditional Wu mold, others don't. Some show promising
talent, others don't. Wu-Tang Clan members are strewn about the
album to add clout to The Sting. Even ODB appears on a
track, which is more that can be said for the Wu-Tang's latest,
artists include Black Nights ("Bar Mitzvah," "Rollin',"
"Woodchuck"), North Star, and most notably, Lord Superb
("Spend Money," "Take Up Space"). Lord Superb
sounds like a younger, refined ODB. The two tracks he appears
on are classic Wu material. Other seasoned Wu-Tang productions
include Killarmy and Shyheim. RZA appears as Bobby Digital, and
the Limited Edition CD also includes a 2nd CD, an EP of Bobby
Digital tracks (including the celebrated "La Rhumba").
the splashing of Wu-Tang Clan members and RZA, Wu-Tang Killa
Beez: The Sting is less then stellar. Tracks like "Out
Think Me Now" and "Hatin' Don't Pay" have too much
of a West Coast, player/gangster feel to fit the Wu-Tang mold,
and simply won't please Wu-Tang fans. The better tracks on The
Sting aren't quite good enough to help the whole album, but
there is enough content to make it an average Wu-Tang production.
