GZA Announces New Album, Postpones "Liquid Swords 2"

While "Liquid Swords 2" will be delayed, Wu-Tang Clan's GZA says he's hitting the studio for a new album with both an audio and visual element.

Wu-Tang Clan’s GZA has announced he is working on a new album. While he has yet to announce a title for his sixth full-length album, GZA stated via Twitter that the project would have a visual and audio element and be “in a league of its own.”

Ready to get into the lab to record this next album.8:56 PM Jan 22nd via Echofon

In April of 2010, GZA announced he would release a sequel to his critically acclaimed 1995 album, Liquid Swords. He set a tentative release date of fall 2010 for Liquid Swords 2, which he added would feature production by Wu-Tang’s RZA. In a Twitter post shortly after his initial announcement, GZA clarified that the upcoming project will not be Liquid Swords 2—although he apparently does intend to eventually release it.

This project will have a visual and audio element. In a league of it's own. Taking it up a notch before we get Liquid Swords 2 in motion.9:02 PM Jan 22nd via Echofon

While RZA’s production duties are currently taking a backseat to his directorial movie debut, The Man With the Iron Fist, GZA and the remaining Wu-Tang Clan members recently helped wrap up their 26-date, nationwide “Rebirth” tour.

NOT Liquid Swords 2. Not yet.9:25 PM Jan 22nd via Echofon via Echofon

    i hope GZA can keep up with the chef on this new album

    Cant wait for both, GZA is my favorite Wu Tang member, Liquid Swords was THE BEST ALBUM EVER. Excited to see the Genius is goin to put something out, and surprised he's putting out a sequel to liquid swords still.

    As long as the album is thorough,I don't mind. UNEMPLOYMENT SUCKS! I had to depend on a cheesy unemployment check after I got laid off and it sucked, BIGTIME! Now I’m pullin down $18,000 a week, just mailing out postcards. Wanna see?

  • The Ice Cold Phenom

    If the new album isn't Liquid Swords II then I don't want it!

  • Rick

    good, hopefully they kill that project. Come up with a new title man. Ive been a WU head since '92. But his sequel shit has got to stop!!

  • EddieMurrrphy

    i want to see and album with gza, masta and deck.

  • GLOCKWORK

    I'm not worried, Raekwon delayed Linx II forever and that turned out classic. GZA always makes good shit so I'm down for another album.

  • hellrazor

      If you liked that joint, check out the track it's sampled from - David Porter's I'm Afraid the Masquerade Is Over. Biggie's Who Shot Ya? and Cool J's Ill Bomb also rip that track.

    I wish He would have made a LS2 sooner!! Ghost is the only member of Wu who keeps the people satisfied! Rae has been coming back a little more now, its way over due for something new fron GZA and Meth!

    • EddieMurrrphy

      meth's last album was solid but it came out in like 06 we approachin five years now since a solo. i'd like to hear somethin new from him. 421 was a sick album i liked it way more than tical 0 the prequel. blackout! 2 i have to disagree with. besides that sick as track havoc produced there wasnt shit on that album. that pete rock joint was easily the worst beat i have ever heard from him.. a-yo a-yo a-yoo. just weak man.

    • r.pgh

      i disagree about Meth. His last album was solid, so was Blackout 2.

  • Donovan Kelleher

    i didnt know rza was makin that movie. damn. and hopefully liquid swords 2 will be like raekwons ob4cl 2

    The Genius always brings heat, looking forward to both albums, even though I would love to get my hands on Liquid Swords 2 first.
