Song Review: Wu-Tang Clan - 225 Rounds



Tastes and trends change, but the Clan marches on.  Though they stopped being relevant to mainstream listeners and black audiences years ago, The Wu continues to release new music to the few but faithful.  I count myself in that exclusive fraternity, and will always give new offerings from the Shaolin crew a chance.  Though their heyday can never be repeated, they are still capable of delivering heat.  “225 Rounds,” from the upcoming compilation Legendary Weapons (Named after the classic Shaw Brothers flick) is a brand new banger that teams a rather odd collective of members and affiliates for a round of head cutting.
