RZA Hints At Wu-Tang Clan Dropping A Final Album On The 20th Anniversary Of "Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)"

RZA speaks on the upcoming 20th anniversary of "Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)," a new album from the iconic group, and more.

With the 20th anniversary of Wu-Tang Clan’s iconic debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) roughly a year away, the Staten Island crew’s resident beatsmith RZA is hoping that the group can release one last hoorah in the form of a studio album in time for the 2013 anniversary.

RZA spoke on the possibility of a new Wu-Tang album during an appearance on Sway In The Morning after being asked if there would be another joint album from the group.

“Well, what I can say about that Sway is next year, November 2013 – I’m going back from 1993 to 2013, that’s our 20-year anniversary,” RZA revealed. “So I told the brothers we should definitely come together and maybe do something to close the book. So we’ve been building about it. If life permits and the energy is proper maybe next year on the same date or the same time we put out 36 Chambers we’ll put out a final chapter of recorded music.”

Prior to speaking on the 20th anniversary of Wu-Tang’s debut album, RZA spoke on The Five Year Plan which was behind the creation of his latest project, the upcoming film The Man With The Iron Fists.

“First thing is envision, to have vision and foresight of where you wanna go. If you don’t know where you wanna go how you gonna have a destination of how you gonna get there so always plan ahead,” the rapper explained. “This is kind of esoteric, but the mind is the governing factor. You can look at the stars and you already can see a star that’s light years away. Your mind sees it and to get there it’s gonna take that time so I like to put things in the universe first in my mind and then I put my willpower to it and I carry myself through it.”

The Man With The Iron Fists, which RZA both wrote and directed, will be released in theaters on November 2.

    After Iron Flag(had some joints but expected more) And 8 Diagrams(lackluster effort) WuTang can't just drop one more album and retire. Channel some of that WuTangForever vibe. Cmon y'all. Quit acting like you ain't got fans that fuck with y'all...

    i dont know if these guys got the energy or the right company that will let this put this out. if they put a album they take the risk of making an album that not well received that messing up their legend status. plus this generation is not into a traditonal sound any more. either wu makes something similar to the cats that are out now or forget it.

      sorry i dont agree 36 chambers remains one of their best albums they already legendary , i still hope they release a tight ass album. but they shouldnt adjust to cats nowadays at all. i hope they can create that cold ny sound mixed with wutang kung fu samples style.

      20 year in the rap game is forever. they did what they said they would do they didnt hop in and hop out. they got kids they took care of they famlies and they were able to support themselves all this years. they did better than a lot of people that been in the game.

  • onelove

    they better put 100% into it not like this half ass shit they been puttin out for the past decade.

  • nano

    i wish they remaster cuban linx

  • Robbin Tanks 4 Ammo

    If that will be the final chapter I hope that they build it inhouse, no guest spots...or maybe Nas Esco. But damn if its a final, atleast make it a double

  • Anonymous

    dope hopefully some unreleased ODB verses make it a full wu album

  • IDK

    I really hope they can come through with this project. However, thanks to all of these release dates being pushed back by a lot of rappers nowadays, how their latest album 8 Diagrams turned out (along with the 6-year gap between it and Iron Flag), how experimental and polished RZA is with his productions, and how members like GZA and Method Man have yet to release another solo album after announcing one a long time ago, I'm feeling a little skeptical for this album to come through and how it'll turn out. Let's hope this album doesn't turn for the ugly.

    More chances to see a new and final Wu-Tang Clan album by 9(10) men rather than Detox by one man: Dr. Dre. Find the mistake!

    They need to remastered Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)

  • Beez

    You can't pigeon-hole the RZA who the fluck are YOU?

  • Wu Tang Forever

    Would be dope to have one final wu tang album the game needs it!

  • Anonymous

    It would be nice to have one last WU album. But ONLY if RZA goes back to his dirty, dusty , raw sound.

  • BiLL$

    Rza is the shit. THE WU-TANG CLAN WILL RISE AGAIN.

  • nickrazor2000

    Wow it is a bittersweet pain to hear this. I feel old as hell. I was a wu-tang superfan (or a stan as they say now) in my teenage years during the 90's. Listening to Enter the wu-tang and all the 1st solos brings me back to some of my happiest memories growing up. I hope they do this last album. They owe this to fans like me who have stuck with them all these 20 years. SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!
