Wu-Tang vs. Dubstep

Well it was bound to happen. After the release of the Dubstep LA Mix featuring MC's wide and far from like  Snoop, Xxibit, Eve, Ras Kass, Murs, Dynamite MC  etc, a full length hip-hop/ dubstep Lp was bound to happen. I'm not surprised that it's Wu-tang to do it first, as quite a few core members seem to be entrenched in the LA scene, and dubstep as we know, is pretty massive out there. This is set to drop Nov. 10th and has a pretty solid line-up of dubstep producers that remixed the Wu. Just like the Dubstep LA mix, some tunes felt disjointed to me, and other sounds pretty hot. To quote the product descript at Amazon:" with stomach-pounding, bass-thumping guttural beats, and gully, gritty and grimy lyrics ". HAHAHA. Wow. Sorry, just though that shit was funny when I read it. No disrepect to anyone involved, but that's some big chest thumping right there. When all is said and done it's very Wu sounding all the way thru, and doesn't feel like much of a compromise on anyones part, and I suppose that is a difference from the slightly more commercial sounding Dubstep LA Mix, where some tunes felt a little forced.  Anyways, here's the track list, head over to Amazon and check it for yourself... and weigh in with a comment below... do you think that Dubstep and hip-hop are a match made in heaven, or is this all a flash-in-the-pan fad?

6. Biochemical Equation (Datsik & Excision Remix) - this was the same beat on I Got That Dy Lan on the Dubstep LA Mix w/Alexander Spit...
