Posse cuts are an interesting sub-genre of hip-hop expression. While the usual dynamic for rap songs is a single rapper and a single producer with maybe one or two “featured” artists, the posse cut integrates varying styles and techniques but must remain fluid and coherent. The individual rappers tailor their own styles over the same beat which often produces intriguing dichotomies between artists. Indeed, some of the most memorable and influential rap songs can be considered posse cuts: “The Symphony,” “Scenario,” “Buddy,” and “Flava In Ya Ear (Remix),” to only name a few.

One common theme throughout NBA All-Star Weekend is that there are more stars in the crowd than there are on the court. In fact, we're guessing the ratio of celebrities to players is about 50-to-1. And two of the dudes who made an appearance in New Orleans this week were none other than Ghostface Killah and Raekwon, who were nice enough to sit and talk with Complex before putting their taste buds through sheer agony (more on that in like five seconds).
First they talked about how they stay so close over the years, and how they do things at ASW. If you happen to be there it sounds like they're cool with taking pics.
From there they pivoted to talking about how they were set to pair up for a live episode of Hot Ones soon after this interview. Showcasing the two most common pregame approaches to the increasingly spicy wings, Ghostface expressed some worry, and even said, "As long as it's not hot." Good luck with that.
Meanwhile, Raekwon seemed completely unfazed. Though, as we've seen, everybody's got a plan 'til that sauce punches them in the mouth.
Guess we'll have to see how those contrasting attitudes fare when they're put to the test.
Keep your eye out for Hot Ones featuring Ghostface and Raekwon when it drops.

Martin Shkreli is trying to sell tickets to a lecture next week by billing the event as a listening event.
On Wednesday, Martin Shkreli, the infamous pharmaceutical exec who purchased the Wu-Tang album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for more than $2 million last year, took to social media to promote an event next week dubbed “An Evening With Martin Shkreli,” which will find him lecturing at NYC’s Webster Hall about politics, investing & healthcare. But what many people are finding interesting is that Martin also described the lecture as a listening event. So could he be planning on playing the album for those in attendance? It appears that way.
According to the listing on Eventbrite, Shkreli was scheduled to play “unreleased music” from his Wu-Tang collection & more. However, shortly after the announcement, Shkreli took to Facebook to announce the event had been canceled due to some threats.
“It's sad that a couple of threats can cancel a 500 person event people wanted to go to..”
Shkreli has already played snippets from the album back in November following Trump's victory, so the idea of him wanting to play the full thing shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Let's just hope it doesn't happen in the manner in which he wishes.
We’ll keep you posted if any more on this story develops.
