Today marks the 20th anniversary of Wu-Tang Clan’s classic debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). If the group never drops another album again, they will be considered one of the greatest collection of MCs in hip-hop history.
But, of course, fans won’t let that ride. It’s been six years since their last release, 8 Diagrams. With the group’s reunion tour building hype, them dropping the single “Family Reunion” earlier this year and having their name buzzing with the newbies off the possible Drake single, now seems as good a time as ever to get things in motion.
Once everyone gets one board, fans will get what they have been waiting for, RZA recently said in an interview with GrantLand. Things are going in the right direction after the crew bonded on tour. “I got optimism off the summer tour we did in Europe,” said The Abbot speaking on the valuable time recently spent with the crew. “It was so healthy. We got a lot of time on the bus to talk, to argue, to laugh, to hug, to see fans loving us. And to see the potential of what we can do. To see the potential of the legacy of what we did. We got a lot of work done [recording in Europe]. I feel like we have enough material on the album.”
Despite having the songs on deck, RZA said all but three members are all in. “I just need Raekwon to come on board fully I need some more energy from Ghost and GZA,” he added. “If they give that energy, I will give us a great last album. If they don’t give us the energy, I gotta figure out a plan B.”
