Wu Syndicate Weighs In With Another Anti-Police Brutality Track

More rap artists are beginning to come forward and musically protest the shooting death of West African immigrant Amadou Diallo by undercover New York City police officers.

Last week, Black Star helped organize a session of various hip-hop artists to cut a track to help benefit a new foundation that focuses on the problems of police brutality (see "Common, De La Soul, Cappadonna Join Black Star For Anti-Brutality Track").

Now the Wu-Tang-affiliated Wu Syndicate has weighed in on the shooting with another song, "Bust a Slug," which features the Syndicate's Myalansky and Joe Mafia, as well as guest rappers MMO and KGB. "Bust a Slug" has also been remixed by the Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah.

Both versions of the song will be pressed onto the single, with proceeds being donated to several different anti-police brutality organizations. No word yet on when the Wu Syndicate hopes to have its benefit single out, but we'll keep you


Meanwhile, Black Star has expanded plans for its "Hip Hop for Respect" single into a full-length album, based upon the hip-hop community's overwhelming response to last weekend's sessions.
