Wu-Tang Clan In Studio For New Album With Ghostface Running The Show
(AllHipHop News) The Wu-Tang Clan is recording a new album, making the upcoming album the band's sixth official studio project.
According to Masta Killa, Wu-Tang's usual musical mastermind RZA will be "supervising" the project, while Ghostface Killah "is at the wheel" of the fresh material.
"He's (Ghostface Killah) putting that together as we speak," Masta Killa said. "There will be another Wu-Tang Clan album. We're working on that right now, and hopefully it's ready right with the 25th anniversary."
"He (Ghostface) just gives it a new outlook and a fresh coat of eyes and ears," Inspectah Deck adds. "Ghost has taken it upon himself to say, 'I want to get the beats, I want to hear some things that's happening here,' so we're trusting him the same we trusted RZA in the beginning. Why not, man? Ghost has been successful in his solo endeavors. It's a change of pace. Hopefully we get another banger, another Wu classic out of this project as well, in the 25th anniversary."
The group celebrated the 25th anniversary of their debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) by performing the LP in its entirety onstage. The hip-hop legends are playing at the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit today (May 28).
"It's been awhile since we've done (the whole album live), since the early 2000s, maybe," Inspectah Deck told Billboard. "It's 25 years, man, and we stood the test of time and we're still proving ourselves - and people still appreciate you like that, which is dope. So it's gonna be fun.
"We made our music just to be a voice for the voiceless, and that's what we continue to be 25 years later, so when we get up there, don't expect a lot of Cristal (champagne) popping. When you come to our show, you want some food for thought, and we've got our aprons on."
Other Wu-Tang members GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, U-God and Cappadonna are also expected to take part in the 25th anniversary of 36 Chambers, which was officially released in November, 1993.
