Mef, Ghost, and Rae reunite to bring what I hope is a comme il faut of why the Wu-Tang Clan virtually dominated a part of hip hop's history which began more than 15 years ago with the Wu-Massacre album dropping March 30th.
Here's a teaser video that CULTURE KINGS ARTIST COLLECTIVE member 131 PROJECTS put together for Ahol Sniffs Glue and his upcoming solo show titled '7.625 FL OZ' at the Butter Gallery in Wynwood.

I reposted this mix I did about 5 years ago... I thought it was fitting for tonight's JAY-Z Show.
I did this mix almost 5 years ago and never had a chance to put it out. Its about 42 tracks including 17 of my remixes, originals, and b-sides. Got to send a big ups to John Cash for letting me use his equipment and engineering the remixes with me. Be on the look out for the final version which includes a propper intro and 13 new tracks and remixes. Enjoy!

During World War I sinking a enemy battleship was a 3-step process. First, locate your target's position and plot its course. Second, determine the battleship's speed and confirm the direction in which it's heading. Last, launch torpedo not directly at the ship, but where you think it’s going to be by the time the torpedo reaches the ship.
Armed with this insight, British Artist and naval officer Norman Wilkinson pioneered the Dazzle Camouflage movement (known as Razzle Dazzle in the United States). Norman used bright, loud colours and contrasting diagonal stripes to make it incredibly difficult to gauge a ship’s size and direction.
As sonar and radar technology improved, the once effective dazzle camouflage was rendered obsolete. By WWII the dazzle camouflage was an afterthought. Thankfully contemporary artists like Jeff Koons have kept the style alive with outrageous boats like this:
