The Wu-Tang Clan made an appearance at last year’s Desert Daze, where they were joined by Khruangbin. The group’s members Ghostface Killah and RZA teamed up on the song “On That Sht Again,” which brought a mix of Portishead with its cinematic strings and piano, on top of Ghostface’s hardcore delivery.
The Strokes released their first album in seven years The New Abnormal, which was accompanied by singles for “At The Door,” “Bad Decisions” and “Ode To The Mets.” DJ Paul and Juicy J of Three 6 Mafia, recently sued $uicideboy$ over uncleared samples fom 35 different songs, some of which, had similar titles.
