Music Video Review: Raekwon-Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang

The release date for Raekwon’s Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang is almost upon us (Click here to read my review of the album).  The title song has been circulating for some time now.  In the Wu’s heyday, one might have expected a somewhat polished video for it to be put into heavy rotation on Rap City.  In today’s world of viral marketing, smaller scale productions premiere on the web instead of on television.  It is through these means that the video for “Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang” makes its debut.  This unceremonious unveiling is actually very much in keeping with the video itself.
