NEW MUSIC TUESDAY: Alicia Keys, Wu-Block, Freeway & Rage Against the Machine


| November 27, 2012 - 7:02 pm

Three years since releasing her synth-heavy The Element of Freedom album, Alicia Keys returns with the more stripped down Girl on Fire, featuring production from Dr. Dre and her hubby Swizz Beatz. Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah unites with the LOX’s Sheek Louch for a self-titled joint album under the nickname Wu-Block that was several years in the making. They don’t do it alone. Expect several cameos from their pals including Erykah Badu. Rage Against the Machine go back to where it all started, re-releasing their eponymous debut in a loaded box of goodies that mark the rap-rock band’s 20th anniversary and bring back several mosh-pit memories. Freeway returns with his fourth, Diamond In the Ruff. Check it all out below in VIBE’s weekly episode of New Music Tuesday. (Dang, we love this day of the week!)
