The Art of War Theater: 5 Deadly Venoms

blame it on JES7 January 12, 2013

The third installment of 2dopeboyz’s The Art of War Theater features yet another Kung Fu classic: 1978’s 5 Deadly Venoms. Produced by none other than the legendary Shaw Brothers. The beginning of the film introduces the “five deadly pupils”: the fast moving Centipede, the speed and agility of the Snake, the deadly grasp of the Scorpion, the agile Lizard and mentally strong and intelligent Toad. This same film also heavily influenced The Abbot, which can be heard in various Wu related projects, including Masta Killa‘s No Said Date, as well as being the influence behind the short-lived, all female, Wu-affiliated group Deadly Venoms as well as the classic mixtape, 5 Deadly Venoms of Brooklyn (featuring Tony Touch, DJ Premier, PF Cuttin’, Mister Cee & Evil Dee) which I’ve uploaded for your listening pleasure. Peace to Tony Toca for sending me a personal dubbed copy with original insert / artwork. Enjoy!

Tracklisting can be found here.
