Method Man, Raekwon & Ghostface Ask Fans For a Group Name

Shaolin’s finest needs your help. Last Friday (January 8), Ghostface posted a blog entry on his MySpace page asking fans to help pick a group name for him, Raekwon and Method Man, as they prepare to drop their upcoming collabo project, Wu-Massacre.

Back in November, XXLMag.com reported that the album was pushed back to 2010 from its original date of December 22. Fans had already been treated to a trio of viral trailers helmed by director Rik Cordero promoting the December date so the pushback came as a surprise.

Now, with the Wu-Massacre having a February 9 release date, the Clansmen have less than a month to come up with an official group name and they’re turning to fans for an assist. “Meth, Rae & Ghost need a name 4 the group,” read the message on Ghost’s blog. “Txt MethRaeGhost to 66937 to name the band! If they chose UR name U can be in the liner notes.”

Look for an announcement on the group name in the coming weeks and the album to be released through Def Jam next month. —Anslem Samuel

    2. 3rd I
    Halim you had a good one with “3 Pillars”, but I don’t think it should get that deep; maybe it should. Other than that, My one and two are the best I’ve seen here.
    *the “3rd I” stands for Ironman, Iron Lung and Iron Chef.*

    160
    The 160
