With a Wu-Tang Greatest Hits album, as well as the Clan’s recent reunion concert, accompanying DVD and live CD, bringing the Wu back into hip-hop’s short attention span, the time is right for Raekwon to release his next dose of potent mind spray. He’s currently cooking up his next solo project, which he promises will give his famished die-hard fans the 1995 vintage meal they have been craving for the past decade. Details on the album’s features and angles are being kept quiet for now, but one thing is for sure: Raekwon seems more focused than ever these days, dedicated to proving to the youth that this veteran’s day of redemption is truly near. Read the interview here.
According to Ecko.com, Wu-tang Clan affiliates Hell Razah and long time Wu producer 4th Disciple have recorded a new album together entitled ‘Sunz of Man Present: Hell Razah & 4th Disciple – Freedom of Speech.’ The new album is exclusively produced by the 4th Disciple. Hell Razah is a founding member of the group Sunz of Man and has appeared on various Wu-tang Clan albums, including projects from Method Man and The Genius/GZA. 4th Disciple has produced tracks for the majority of Wu-tang Clan members including Ghostface and Raekwon. No release date has been set for ‘Freedom of Speech.’
