The members of the Wu-Tang Clan have revealed that the iconic hip-hop collective is working on a new album. The new projected will be led by Ghostface Killah, which comes to a surprise, as past projects were usually helmed by RZA in the past. The group’s last album, The Saga Continues, was released in 2017.
“He’s putting that together as we speak. 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,” says Masta Killa. Inspectah Deck then went on to say:
“He just gives it a new outlook and a fresh coat of eyes and ears. 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.”
There’s no word on a release date for this untitled project, but it is speculated to drop close to November 9th, which also happens to be Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)‘s 25th anniversary.
It’s rare to see groups still making music together after such a long span of time, so it’ll be exciting to see what the Clan gives us next. “We’re definitely gonna give you the business, ’cause that’s what Wu-Tang does. We get up there and keep the essence of hip-hop alive. We made our music just to be a voice for the voiceless, and that’s what we continue to be 25 years later!” Inspectah Deck added. I think it’s safe to say that the saying “Wu-Tang Forever” continues to reign true.
