GP Wu

Sup people? Been very busy the last weeks and also in future will not look that better. This leaves not the time I’d like to rip new stuff and write the respective articles to them so that’s the reason why this board dried out lately! Well, will try to push my homes Mirro & Onur to bring sum from their cratez in here and personally will also try to find some time to contribute more again in here…
Meanwhile I dug in my old rips and found two records I didn’t show so far – hope ya’ll enjoy ‘em!

GP WU is the crew for today. For those that ain’t familiar with those catz here are the basics:
GP WU stands for “Gladiator Posse Wu” what of course refers to their link to the mighty Wu Tang Clan family. The posse consists of Pop da Brown Hornet, Rubbabandz, Down Low Recka & Juna Luva and they’re comin outta Staten Island, NY. They had their peak in the biz in the mid/late 90s when they were dropping most of their stuff (individually or in this group) but they also still active nowadays (check their myspace for that where they promote the latest Rubbabandz LP). So the first of the two wax I’m showin is from 1997, a promo released on MCA records. The titles on it are “hit me with that shit” and “party people”. Forget about the 2nd track already as it ain’t good at all but the main title is the banger!

The other record I got from them was released in the same year, on the same label and also as a promo only. Again you got the track “party people” on it and on the flip you find the best track (IMO) they ever dropped – “chamber danger”! man, I just love it how the beat is constructed; startin’ easy n low, then the vocals and after that the bass-construction that builds up until that phat bassline comes in and bangs ya ears!
Awesome!

Besides these twelves they released a bunch of other ones and in 1998 finally dropped their full length “don’t go against the grain” on MCA which I really recommend to y’all!

best Wu-related crew, imo. It's a sham that Pop The Brown Hornet's album was relatively weak compared to this or his earlier 12"es.
