The 8th member of Wu-Tang Clan, U-GOD dropped his fourth solo album ´"The Keynote Speaker" yesterday. After a slew of hot singles, grabbing The RZA to executive produce the project, I was definitely hyped to see what Uey would cook up this time, as I always felt he had a lot more potential than his previous solo albums have let on. "The Keynote Speaker" is not a masterpiece, but it's actually a pretty damn good album that should please Wu heads everywhere. With 19 tracks there's a few weaker songs and some corny hooks but there's more than enough of hot bangers to make up for that. Just take the new DJ Homocide produced single/video "Skyscraper" for a good example of what the project has to offer..
Released on Soul Temple Records, it seems a lot of people have had problems getting their shipments (it should be noted that I personally received my order of the Ghost / Adrian LP however) so you might want to order your copy from Fat Beats or UGHH. The CD is out now (and also features a bonus seven tracks Soul Temple sampler disc), while the 2xLP hits retail outlets on July 30.
