Now I'm a tell you what Em told me homey, "Just lose it!"
The parental discretion's advised, this is grown folk music
Now blend in with me as I proceed to break it down
It's always off the chain man when I'm around
I play the block bumpin, it was all for the dough

Only thing missing is  a fucking banger like Ice Cream. That track was such heat and for me this was the only downer. The large tracklist can't be complained about really cause most would've moaned if there were 13 tracks. Need to give it more spins.

Im not comparing the 2 tracks but listening i got the feeling that New Wu is kinda like the 2009 version of Ice Cream. Great Beat, Great hook from Meth, 3 good verses

Just over 71 minutes I believe which is the same length as the first pretty much and yes it is 22 tracks. 

There certainly isn't any tracks that are horrible but hip-hop albums are too long in general. The thing this album does right though is that the length of the tracks is on average between 3-4 minutes. If I was to remove some tracks it would probably be the Dre tracks which just seem tacked on, Dre's sound is too clean and doesn't work when most of the tracks have a sort of rough/soulful/dark sound. I'd probably also lose the Jadakiss joint and maybe Surgical Gloves and Kiss The Ring which would make the album about 55 minutes long.

Album is a modern day classic as is. And taking off "Broken Safety" and "Kiss The Ring"? Are you out of your mind, those are 2 of the hottest tracks on the album. Only thing I agree w/ here is "Surgical Gloves" (song is bangin', but doesn't fit the vibe. The Dre tracks sound like Dre, but they do fit in w/ the album). Either way, I'm more than happy w/ the way this album turned out (except I was really anticipating "Rockstars & Smokin' Barrells").

"Walk With Me" and "The Badlands" feat. Ghostface are the European bonus tracks (both are blazin'). Still waitin' for my Amazon UK order >:(

I'm not really a Jadakiss fan so that's probably why I'd take Broken Safety off. Kiss The Ring I'm not sure about, not really feeling the sample and feel that Ason Jones would be a much better closer for the album.

The Dre tracks just don't work for me beatwise though, Catalina starts with a sample from The Killer with the classic theme and I'm wondering what's coming next and it's just the same old Dre *clap* *piano* *clap*. Don't like the chorus either.

About Me is a bit better with that ahwoo vocal repeating in the background, the drums again don't work for me.

Really though the album is great and I have no serious issues with any of the tracks. Definitely one of the best albums of recent years.
