Legendary producer RZA has announced via his Twitter page (@RZAWU) that he will be producing Liquid Swords 2, sequel to GZA’s classic album.
“IT’S TRUE: ‘LIQUID SWORDS 2’ PRODUCED BY THE ABBOT RZA COMING FALL 2010. WHO’S READY FOR THE WU? BONG BONG,” wrote RZA, whose body of work producing for the Wu from 1993 to 1997 is considered among the best in Hip Hop history. Among the albums produced in that time period was GZA’s Liquid Swords, which is heralded to this day as one of Rap’s finest albums.
The announcement comes after the recent critical and commercial successes of other Wu-Tang sequels: Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…II and Method Man and Redman’s Blackout! 2. The Wu brand has come back strong as of late, with well-received releases in Chamber Music and Wu-Massacre, as well as others.
There is currently no set release date for Liquid Swords 2.
