Wu-Tang Forever: The Clan Signals ‘A Better Tomorrow’ with New Album
Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nuthing ta f___ wit. Now, 20 years after the Staten Island set’s formation, all nine members (sans late rapper ODB) crashed The Daily Show for a comeback of historic proportions.
Ghostface Killah, RZA, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon, Cappadonna, Method Man, U-God, GZA, and Jamel Arief (a.k.a. Masta Killa) formed a reunited front to promote their new album A Better Tomorrow, and debut its lead single, “Ron O’Neal.” The disc will be their first LP in seven years, excluding The Wu – Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, a $5 million relic featuring 31 unreleased songs.
RZA, whose credits include screenwriting, directing, and acting, told Jon Stewart that Tomorrow aims to “inspire a better tomorrow for the world,” while Raekwon addressed why it took so long to bring everyone back together.
“I consider this a sport,” he said. “I think it’s important that as an athlete of music, to make sure that you’ve got your business together, to make sure that you feel happy. Whatever you want to do, you’ve just got to feel good about it, and know that at the end of the day, you’ve got your I’s dotted and your T’s crossed in business.”
Now that they’re officially back to work, check out Wu-Tang’s Daily Show performance, and look out for A Better Tomorrow’s drop later this year.
