As we reported last month, RZA is one of the many producers behind Kanye West and Jay-Z’s forthcoming joint album, Watch The Throne. His appearance on the two hip-hop heavyweights’ record comes after he produced “Dark Fantasy” on Yeezy’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The beat sounded like that good ole gritty Wu-Tang shit, something Ye recognized when asking for a beat for Watch The Throne. According to Rolling Stone, he apparently hit up the RZA last December and told him: “‘Send some more of that Wu shit!'” The Wu producer heeded the call and sent over what we’ll all hear on the “grimy ‘New Day.'”
