After quite the hiatus, The Koalition’s Throwback Thursday feature returns just in time to mark the new collaboration album by The Wu-Tang Clan and D-Block (a.k.a The L.O.X) which dropped this week.

The album is mainly comprised of the duo of Ghostface Killah and Sheek Louch. However, other members of Wu-Tang and D-Block such as Jadakiss, Raekwon, Styles P., Method Man and GZA all make appearances throughout the album.

This week we’ll look back at two tracks: “Protect Ya Neck” by The Wu-Tang Clan and also “Money, Power & Respect” by D-Block (known as “The L.O.X” back then).

“Protect Ya Neck” was a single from Wu-Tang’s debut album “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)” which was released in 1993. It’s one of their first and also better known songs which has been featured in video games such as “True Crime: New York City” and “Skate 2″.

 

Money, Power & Respect” was the 2nd single released for the album of the same title which was released in 1998 on Puffy’s Bad Boy Records label. The album went onto be a critical and commercial success. This song had also been featured on Def Jam’s “Music Inspired by Scarface” album for obvious reasons, if you’re a fan of the film. Lil’ Kim and DMX also featured on the track.

If you like these two tracks then I suggest you check out the respective albums.
