Fans have been patiently waiting for the release of a new album from the Wu-Tang Clan ever since the NYC group last dropped off A Better Tomorrow back in 2014, and thankfully we’re finally close to having our wishes come true. Last month, RZA announced that the legendary rap crew would joining forces once again for a new album called Wu Tang: The Saga Continues, which will be dropping October 13th and be curated by longtime collaborator Mathematics, who presumably helped shape the tracklist with the project’s executive producer RZA.
"For years, Math has had the idea of putting together a body of music using modern and legendary equipment such as ASR10 with vocal performances by Wu-Tang Clan members and other prominent MCs. With The Saga Continues he’s created a masterpiece. We at 36 Chambers ALC are honored to work with Mathematics and Wu-Tang Clan to put out a great piece of art.” RZA said with the album announcement.
Available for pre-order now on iTunes, those of you who to take advantage of the early purchase will receive two new songs for free as an instant download, the previously heard leak “People Say” with Redman, and now this new song “Lesson Learn’d” featuring Inspectah Deck & Redman.
Produced by Mathematics, take a listen to the classic, NYC-sounding rap song and let us know what you think in the comments (below). Who laid down the best verse?
In other related news, a few of the Wu-Tang Clan members are taking their talents on the road this Fall for a nationwide tour presumably in support of the album, which you can peep tour dates for right here if interested. It’s mostly Raekwon, Method Man, and Ghostface Killed who are doing most of the touring, but that’s dope enough to make fans want to go.
