Would it be too bold to say that Shabazz and Dj Extremidiz have a serious contender for Wu-International’s “Album of the Year” with their collabo ‘Hood Scripturez’? Maybe (not) but one thing is for sure: we had to be extremely patient to hear this album as we first heard of this project 5 years ago.
They say "All good things come to those that wait", Shabazz and DJ Extremidiz finally dropped "Hood Scripturez" digitally on the 4th of November via Metal Barz records with the physical release planned for sometime this December.
Last week’s review already said it: it is a very strong collection of no less than 29 tracks, filled with thought provoking lyrics and great beats. While others seek their inspiration in a wild variety of producers and a very crowdy guest list, these two brought it back to the essence: one man behind the mic and another behind the boards. Let’s hope we will see more of this in the near future in our beloved (W)universe as the end result here was impressive.
Now that the album is finally out we thought it would be the perfect moment for an interview with Shabazz The Disciple. Not alone did we want to find out how this collabo came to be, why it took so long to come out and how the recording went. We also tried to get to know something more about his notoriously, unreleased back catalogue (which is apparently 7 albums deep). And it goes without saying we had to ask him about all the Gravediggaz-reunion rumours that been circling around now for a while as well as his Wu-Tang and Sunz of Man's affiliation. It' been a while fans saw Shabazz with the RZA together on a song, what about his Thug Angelz project with Hell Razah? Well grab a comfort seat, switch off the lights, throw in a Gravediggaz tape, CD, or Mp3 and flip through the chapters of this Wu-International exclusive Shabazz interview ... Enjoy!!
