Hip hop and basketball usually go hand-in-hand. The hip hop industry has many comparisons to the NBA. Last summer, two of the NBA’s biggest stars, Chris Bosh and LeBron James, joined Dwyane Wade at the Miami Heat. Their goal to win a championship came up short, but they are a force.
Similarly, many heavyweight rappers have been teaming up for collaborative albums. However, one thing has yet to happen, but is in the works, rap crews coming together. Two of hip hop’s most-respected crews are the Wu-Tang Clan and The L.O.X.
Earlier this year, members from both crews announced the two crews were working on an album. Later, the title of the album was revealed to be Wu-Block. Two members of The L.O.X., Styles P and Sheek Louch, recently discussed the album with XXL. Sheek Louch said the album is primarily a collaboration between he and Ghostface, but their entire crews will be invovled.
Sheek Louch confirmed appeares from Styles P and Jadakiss. Styles P said it was wonderful to be working with someone who he drew inspiration from, as he was recording his early rhymes. Excited for the chance to work with Ghostface Killah, Styles P said he is not a member of Wu-Tang, but he loves the opportunity to work with several of their members. Styles P said he is honored anytime he gets to work with Ghostface and Raekwon.
