The seventh official Wu-Tang Clan album shows a return to form after the controversies of 2014 nearly imploded the crew.
Pharmaceutical villain Shkreli successfully bought the only copy of the exclusive double album ‘Once Upon A Time In Shaolin’ which was curated by Wu producer Cilvaringz for $2 million. This caused anger amongst fans and members alike after it came to light Shkreli was super hiking the price of cancer medication and being a general muppet.
The project which is completely produced by group affiliate Mathematics (Who designed the Wu-Tang Logo in 1992) and executive produced by RZA. It sees only six of the eight remaining members of the group, with line up of guest features from Chris Rivers (Big Pun’s son), the late Sean Price, a healthy dose of Wu affiliates Redman and Killah Priest along with several others.
With differences settled and a common enemy of a conniving pharma-bro, the classic boom bap sound interlinked with Kung Fu flick inspired interludes is the soundtrack to Wu Tang regrouping and settling into the grown man rap space.
