Apparently there is a new Wu-Tang Clan album dropping at the end of next month and for all you skeptics out there, I’ve read that RZA was heavily involved in the creation of Legendary Weapons. Also, Ghostface Killah is slated to appear on eight of the 11 tracks, which will also include features from the rest of the Wu.
According to Nah Right, RZA produced a majority of the project with some help from Brooklyn-based band the Revelations and producers such as Fizzy Womack and Noah Rubin. The latter’s work behind the boards appears here on “Only the Rugged Survive,” the first cut we’ve heard from Legendary Weapons. It’s a lounge-y, steadily grooving tune driven by some great guitar and brass work, though RZA’s drunken depiction of his extravagant dinner plate in the first 30 seconds is probably the best part.
Legendary Weapons drops June 28. Stream “Only the Rugged Survive” below and download it here.
