Its WuWednseday!

Last week marked the 11th anniversary of No Said Date, the debut solo album from Masta Killa, one of the least visible members of the almighty Wu-Tang Clan and the last of its original nine members to release a solo project. No Said Date is a solid, slept-on Wu banger that allows the Brooklyn, NYC lyrical swordsman to get his much-earned time to shine on a full-length project for the first time, and the eight remaining Clan members (including the late, great Ol' Dirty Bastard!) lend their support, as do affiliates Killah Priest, Prodigal Sunn and Streetlife. The bulk of the production is handled by RZA, Mathematics and True Master, so you already know the traditional Wu sound and flavor is in full effect here. The RZA-produced "Old Man" features the ODB's hilarious verbal antics and an innovative beat that samples the Sanford & Son theme; part of another popular TV show theme, Cheers, is also used on the outro to "Last Drink". MK shares the mic with Wu brothers Raekwon and Ghostface Killah on "D.T.D." and also with Inspectah Deck and GZA on "Silverbacks"; perhaps the most qualifying posse cuts on the album. There are also two excellent hip hop love songs on here: the True Master-laced "Queen", and "Love Spell", produced by Supa Dave West (known for his work with De La Soul, Talib Kweli, Planet Asia and more). The enclosed bonus DVD contains rare interviews and concert footage. A very welcome addition to the extensive Wu-Tang music library, No Said Date is not one to be missed if you love hip hop. Happy Wu Wednesday y'all....
