This installment of The Five Count featured an exclusive interview with rapper Lamont “U-God” Hawkins. U-God is best known as a founding member of the hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan. He’s also released numerous solo albums, including Golden Arms Redemption and his latest release, Venom. During the show he discussed his new album, his thoughts on “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli buying Wu-Tang Clan’s album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, and his new book “RAW: My Journey into the Wu-Tang.” Wu-Tang forever!
During the rest of the show we discussed why people who aren’t Irish celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, created our new Wu-Tang names, mourned the loss of recently bankrupted Toys “R” Us, and gave away tickets to see Lorde & Run the Jewels at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on Mar. 23. The Five Count forever!
