Capone N Noreaga Capone   Street News (Unreleased)

New unreleased joint out of the SPK stash. Since the news of the CNN split & with both Capone & N.O.R.E. venturing into their solo careers even more, we felt it was only right to let this Pone solo joint go. It was produced by SPK in the early 2000′s.

Today I caught up with Method Man and Masta Killa. Members of the Wu-Tang Clan are in London for two shows (Sat. 11th & 12th at The Forum)

After a quick art lesson, I speak to Masta Killa and Method Man about the first time they came to London. Meth explains how he expected to meet the Queen.

We speak on Steve Rifkind and whether the Wu set him up when they placed a “phantom intern” in his office.

Meth and Killa also break down the 7th Chamber skit for me (parts of it I’ve never quite understood).

The duo explain who Jackpott Scott Watt is and his influence with members of the Wu.

Finally Method Man speaks on his brand new solo album “Crystal Meth”. He explains that the album is going back to the “darker element of Meth with a twist on it and that he has a new technique of writing that noone has touched on.
