Wu-Tang Clan to Release New Album, ‘Legendary Weapons’
Good news for fans of Wu-Tang Clan compilation albums: Koch Records has masterminded yet another ‘Wu-Tang & Friends’-style record to follow their 2009 project ‘Chamber Music.’
Executive-produced by RZA, ‘Legendary Weapons’ is yet another quasi-return for the legendary Staten Island crew, featuring the majority of the Clan members, sans GZA. There’s also a slew of Koch Records-level rappers rhyming over production by RZA and Brooklyn band the Revelations, who also provided the live instrumentation for ‘Chamber Music.’
The first single is the punchy, RZA-featured ‘Only the Rugged Survive.’ Though Ghostface, RZA and Cappadonna are the only Wu members who appear on multiple tracks, ‘Legendary Weapons’ also boasts appearances by Wu-brethren Killa Sin, Trife Diesel and Bronze Nazareth, aided by indie rap heroes Sean Price, Roc Marciano, AZ, M.O.P., Termanology and Queens up-and-comer Action Bronson.
Wu-Tang is currently mid-way through the European leg of their extensive the Rebirth tour, which concludes in Perth, Australia on Aug. 7.
