Method Man, Ghostface & Raekwon Collabo LP Postponed

The Wu-Massacre has been put on hold. Despite several haunting viral videos promoting the forthcoming Method Man, Ghostface and Raekwon collaborative album for a December 22 release, a rep for the group has confirmed with that the disc has been pushed back to the top of 2010.

The Wu-Tang album isn’t the only Def Jam release that fans will have to wait to hear. Redman’s seventh solo disc, Reggie Noble 9 ½ has also been rescheduled for early ’10.

All four rappers have released LPs in 2009. Ghostface dropped his R&B tinged project Ghostdini the Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City back in September, Red and Meth reunited for the sequel to 1999’s Blackout! last May and Rae finally delivered his long delayed Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…Pt. II album two months ago.

As of press time there are no concrete release dates for either the untitled Wu project or 9 ½. —Elan Mancini

    Of course it has it had little promotion and no music to go I can bet that they haven’t recorded an albums worth of material together…I’m sure they got joints but not stuff they’d but on an album

  • donknottz

    Man Def Jam is always doin Reggie Noble Dirty they have no respect for him I swear everytime his album is pushed back and neva pushed. Def Jam is wack. Reggie go Independent. Top MC of the last two decades. Veteran Status

    • Wu Clanman

      Straight up! That Red gone Wild album was pushed back for like 4 1/2 years. Red basically helped build the label back in the day. No respect for a great mc.

  • latino heat

    fuck! i knew this was gonna happen.

    Redman albums always get pushed back.

    and like AZ40 said, there has been no promo or music from that Wu album. i wouldn’t be surprised if we never see that Wu album due to label politics.

  • BB12

    That was the only things i wanted for christmas the wu album and redman album(and a ipod and tv but thats another story lol) man imma be mad as hell if that meth,rae,ghost album never gets released but funkdoc’s cocback song? straight fire

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    Honestly it’s close to closing the doors on rap’s fiscal year anyway. It would be a waste of time & $ to try and drop now. Wait & see if more $ will be offered & make more songs.

  • mr sin

    no surprise there really, i mean the album was only announced the other week. probably better anyway as they have more time to come up with some good shit

  • ms_spittuh

    WHY IN THE FUCK IS REDMAN ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS GETTING PUSHED THE FUCK BACK? i have no more respect for Def Jam.Since Russell and that white nigga left shits been fucked up every since…what tha hell…..why not sign that chicken noodle soup bitch and throw soulja boy on the new Wu cd while your at it…fuckin dipshits…

  • Tony Grands

    Redman did an interview with HipHopDX, & when they asked about Def Jam, he talked in circles & back peddled, but if you’re a fan like I am, you know he was saying the same love that was there with Cohen is gone.

    He also put out the distress signal to Shady Records. Y’all should peep it…

    • Jamal7Mile

      Yep, I read that drop a few days ago. He showed real class when he didn’t say FUCK DEF JAM.

      NONE of the major labels seem to have their shit together right now. Redman’s gotta be careful with his next move(s) because he is too great an artist to be a tax write-off for anyone.

  • Fireforreal

    I’m still waiting for the Nas and Damian marley album first then the Meth,Gost and Rae. But you know with hip hop they put this shit out there when they maybe have only two songs recorded then have you waiting 2 years for the album. That’s if it does eventually come out. I wouldn’t be suprised if that wu joint comes out as a bullshit mixtape instead. What ever happened to Redman doing muddy waters 2 and only printing up 50,000 for the die hard fans and choosing beats he passed on from 96 ? now that would be hot.

    • ms_spittuh

      Redman is working on Muddy Waters 2. That will be his last album for Def Jam. After that he is a free agent to promote his Gilla House shit :)

    Of course! A Wu-Tang album wouldn’t be a Wu-Tang album without being postponed at least once or twice! And their music isn’t of good enough calibre to be playing with their fans like that. I got tired of them back in 97. I was waiting too long for their albums and got tired of waiting!
