RZA Updates On New Wu-Tang Clan Album, Eyes 2012 Release

The RZArector says that there are discussions about the LP, but that it's "never an easy task" to get everyone together.

RZA recently gave an interview where he spoke on the relationship between Wu-Tang Clan's fans and the group, but he also provided a little insight regarding the squad's next album. The RZArector said that there are discussions taking place about moving forward with the album, with hopes to drop the LP by 2012.

“Me and Ghostface talk about it a lot,” he said. “The other members are talking about it. We’ll see what life brings — let’s put it that way.

“To have an official Wu-Tang Clan album with everybody coming together, it’s never an easy task," he continued. "It’s like an independent film or something, a lot of pieces that have to be put together. But I’m always up for that challenge, so I think it’ll happen again — someday.”

Ghostface Killah previously revealed that the Wu-Tang Clan album would release in May 2012, while Raekwon said that they were already at work in the studio.

    THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME, COLLECTIVELY AND INDEPENDENTLY. The group has more fire than anybody out there, Lost Children of Babylon, White Lotus, LEK, Cilvaringz, Killah Priest and others. Don't ever say they don't have it. Wu-Tang is for the babies, the babies have grown up in knowledge and have children of their own now we must teach as we have learned in order to keep the I Self Am Lord and Master principle. Peace to the god Guru. One love.

    WU-TANG is the best i have all their cd's but only two that stapled them in hip-hop is 36 chambers and Wu-tang forever they are hip hop without a doubt probably the greatest along with outkast between those two groups period!!!!

    • CLM83

      Beneath The Surface was Def. Underated. Didn't like The Day After. Iron Flag was an Upset. I liked The W Supreme Clientele, One, produced by Ju Ju, classic! O.B.4.C.L.2 BEST album of '09

  • WU TANG FOREVER

    The greatest group of all time are gonna bless us with another classic 36 chambers of death kid!

"wayne got one of the biggest houses in miami" son what the fuck that got to do with you?? you know wayne's music is wack when his fans start braggin about a the size of a house that they'll never see. i don't give a fuck what kind of house ghostface lives in but i know everytime he drops an album the shit is guaranteed dope. you listenin for the wrong reasons kid

    • dentaldamboy

      ODB was a crackhead. The Clan don't be moving units. They all live with their mommas still. Wayne got one of the biggest houses in Miami.

    • BigmoneyB

      Spit in your own face then hang yourself right after that please.

    • dentaldamboy

      Bro, how you talking about Woo-Tang as if all of their members are not grandpas. These dudes is mad old. They flow like a bunch of white boys rapping. YMCMB is the future. If ODB was still around, he'd sign with Birdman.

    • Beena89

      Haha kill yourself please

  • The Conformist

    Looking forward to this but honestly, I'd prefer seeing Liquid Swords II or the Crystal Meth before another Clan album.

  • Up North

    I think a WTC album out by May is a long stretch. Especially if you trying to rally nine cats together. You add in the fact that RZA is the busiest man in Hip Hop right now and that makes the stretch even longer. I hope it gets done. We need it.

  • marksman

    honestly as much as i love wu tang I dont wanna hear rza behind the board.. i want beats by madlib,mf doom,amp,9th wonder,black milk,exile,and snowgoons

    • @hex

      amp is part of the soul council with 9th wonder

    • sofakingbold

      Fuck outta here! RZA is a musical genius. None of those niggas got the talent that rza does. Not by far. It's not a clan album without him. Raekwon thinks not, but look at his bullshit catalog. His first, and only great lp was really a collabo with ghost. Rza on the boards.I don't care what these new jacks say about obfcl2. That record is nowhere close to as good as his first one.

    • LIQUID SWORDS

      son them producers aint even got the wu tang sound

    • Brian

      And all those producers, which lace straight dope in they own right (specially 9th) got they style from RZA. AKA: Sped up vocal loops, off time bars, snare sounds, etc. So your arguement pretty much punches itself in the dick son.

    • dj nemesis

      fuck that they need a clams casino beat in there somewhere...nigga is bananas

    • Jeff

      Rza not producing a wu tang album. Michael Jordan playing baseball. Politicians speaking the truth. Cars that don't drive. Planes that don't fly

    • Hex

      I don't think he's trolling but that IS a RANDOM ass assortment of producers for a Wu-Tang album, and this is coming from someone whose favorite producer on most days is Black Milk. In fact, the only one I could see working on your list is DOOM, especially after seeing how well "9 Milli Bros." fared. Honestly, something like the last album would be perfect. RZA on most of it with like one or two tracks from Easy Mo Bee and/or DJ Scratch, or anyone else in that same vein who could bring that same Wu sound fans are used to to the table with a twist. RZA catches mad flack for the last album but as far as I'm concerned those beats were gold and it's arguably the best album-length production we've seen from him since Wu-Tang Forever. I don't know exactly who "Amp" is but I really don't know how I'd feel about Exile, Snowgoons, 9th Wonder, and Madlib on a Clan album, and I'm a fan of each.

    RZA is not interested in a another Wu album, plain and simple. He's found where the paper is at in films and movies to be focused on crafting another classic...

  • Anonymous

    Haha! Ghost, Rae & Meth are full of shit.They keep lying about the album when it's clear that they haven't even gotten together to work on it.

    • Anonymous

      Wu been having RZA beats for years. Can you say that Rae, Ghost & Meth did "Our Dreams" in the studio with RZA?

      YOU THE DUMBASS, THE ARTICLE STATES RZA SAID HE AND GHOST TALK ABOUT IT ALL THE TIME.

    • !!!

      How are they lazy? Do you know how projects Wu Tang is behind and how much shit has their stamp on it over the last 20 years? You combine WTC and Nas' catalog together and you've got a significant portion of Hip Hop's best work. Now had you say procrastinate, that would've been a different story...

    • HHP

      I knew they weren't working on it...Certain rappers like Wu and Nas are lazy when it comes to their albums.... Method Man said he was working on his solo like 2 or 3 years ago but I bet he hasn't even started it yet....lol Lying ass, lazy ass dudes.
