    Nothing new, Ghostface Killah and Sheek Louch work well together, but Wu Block lacks concreteness and quality, which had accustomed us Ghostface Killah.

    When I heard Stick'em before the album dropped I was excited. Was a rugged sound and seemed to be a perfect blend of styles. But this album doesn't live up to that in its entirety. All the Wu make an appearance on atleast one song but JadaKiss only comes on one or two leaving out the LOX collab/flashback. All in all was a bit disappointed but still the kind of hip hop I like to see stillWhen I heard Stick'em before the album dropped I was excited.

    If seeker of the hip-hop's next wave need not apply, those with an appetite for rugged, screwfaced late-90's New York rap should find this keeps them scowling like it's 1999. [Mar 2913, p.111]

    Sheek and Ghost may lead the army to battle on every track, but the rotating cast and general camaraderie makes Wu-Block feel like the no bullshit Wu-Tang sort of album segments of the fanbase have been clamoring for since 8 Diagrams.

    The 2012 debut is a pretty accurate throwback to the sound of golden age East Coast rap, complete with soul samples and boom-bap beats.
