Wu-Tang Clan Tap Redman for the Banging ‘People Say’ Ahead of New Album [LISTEN]
RZA is readying a new compilation album titled Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues, and to whet folks' pallets he dropped the new cut "People Say," featuring Redman, considered the official eleventh member of the Shaolin collective.
In the new song, like a lot of Wu's, one can pretty much close their eyes and pick out something quotable, since each member remains highly skilled. Take Inspectah Deck, for example, who continues to deliver mind blowing lines, which he's been doing since day one.
"My team hard, making them lean hard / You'll see more riders lined up than you'll see at a theme park," he spits.
And later in his verse:
"Like this, like an IG pic / Before the Seahawks 24 Lord, I been on that beast sh-- / P----y you whack, something like a cheap trick / Mike in the Billie Jean video, I got the streets lit," Deck rhymes.
Of course, the other Wu members spaz out too, and Red also strings together a slew of impressive bars.
The new record will be released on RZA and Mustafa Shaikh's company 36 Chambers ALC and will be produced entirely by DJ Mathematics. RZA is also executive producing the project, which will feature every Wu Tang member except GZA and U-God.
"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," RZA wrote. "With The Saga Continues, he's created a master piece. We at 36 Chambers ALC are honored to work with Mathematics and Wu-Tang Clan to put out a great piece of art."
The album will be out Oct. 13. Check out the new "People Say" song below.
