C.R.E.A.M. is not the best Wu-Tang Clan song. Can we agree on this? The best is Protect Ya Neck, which is part of a Wu-Tang Clan downloadable song pack some of you can rap to today.
Protect Ya Neck is one of four songs from members of the famous East Coast hip-hop crew being added — for pay — to this fall's rap karaoke game Def Jam Rapstar. (Read our review and hear me rap to the game, if you dare.) C.R.E.A.M. is already available on the disc
The pack consists of Ghostface Killah's Cherchez LaGhost, Method Man and Redman's How High, Raekwon's Ice Cream and the whole Wu-Tang Clan's Protect Ya Neck. The four-song bundle costs 560 Microsoft points or $7. Songs are sold separately for 160 points or $2. The 360 version of the Wu-Tang pack is available now. The pack will be coming to the PlayStation 3 for download as well by Thanksgiving, according to a spokesperson for the game. The Wii version of Rapstar does not support downloadable content.
The Def Jam folks are also selling two new freestyle beats for the game, but downloadable through the Xbox 360. There is one each from producers 9th Wonder and DJ Premier.
