Don’t look now, but RZA has assembled the clan for a new album, Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues, which is set to be released on October 13th.
The new album is executive producer by RZA with help on production from Clan affiliate, DJ Mathematics. RZA has recently called this forthcoming album “a masterpiece.” The upcoming seventh studio album will be the first Wu Tang LP since 2014, when the group released A Better Tomorrow. The album will be the initial release to set in motion 36 Chambers ALC, which is the lifestyle company founded by RZA and Mustafa Shaikh, a partnership with Entertainment One.
The Saga Continues will have features from Clan members including Raekwon, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, and Inspectah Deck, as well as honorary member Redman. The late Sean Price will also have a guest spot on the album. Rumors say that the late Ol Dirty Bastard will have a verse on the forthcoming album as well. It is still unclear if this is true and if it is, how long these ODB vocals have been around.
This past Friday, the prominent group delivered the second single single, “Lesson Learn’d” featuring Inspectah Deck and Redman. The track followed lead single “People Say” featuring Method Man, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa and Redman. The new track fire shots at the despicable Martin Shkreli, known for buying Wu Tang’s Once Upon a Time in Shaolin album for a reported of $2 million and telling fans they would never get to hear it.
Recently, rumors surfaced regarding the legitimacy of the album in Shkreli possession. Domingo Neris, manager of U-God, discredited the project saying “It’s not an authorized Wu-Tang Clan album. It never was.”
