Cappadonna speaks on outsourcing some production for the Wu-Tang reunion album.
Cappadonna has been a close affiliate of Wu-Tang since early on, and while he's never been officially inducted to the clan, he's apparently close enough that (like many of the other members lately) he'd like to have a bigger role in the decision making.
The NY rapper claims that the new album is already half done, and while RZA has served as producer on the recorded tracks, Cap would like to outsource some of the beatwork."I feel like we need some more production, though," he said inÂ an interview with VladTV. "I wanna reach out to some of my brothas, man. We don't got nothing on there fromÂ Swizz [Beatz]. I think RZA should only do half of that album and the rest should be like Swizz Beatz,Â Primo, even get one fromÂ Puffy, man, c'mon."
Cap also spoke on keeping sounds exciting and eclectic in reaction to the Southern rap takeover. "Anything we want to hear new," he said. "We're going to have to push as a conglomerate to make that stick and make it a stronghold in Hip Hop right now or else there ain't gonna be no other sound but that South sound."Â
