Inspectah Deck Prepping Instrumental Album [With XXcLusive Video]

On the heels of dropping his fourth LP, Manifesto, Inspectah Deck is readying the release of his first instrumental album. XXLMag.com recently sat down with The Rebel INS to speak on his production work and his new, as-yet-untitled disc.

The Wu-Tang MC has been making beats for over 15 years, first learning how to piece tracks together from group mastermind Rza, and crew affiliates DJ Mathematics and True Master. “I been doing production since about the first album, but I wasn’t really serious with it, I was just more or less experimentin’, watchin’ Rza do what he does,” he said. [Watch below]

Deck eventually got placements on just about every Wu-Tang release from his fellow clansmen except the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard, including songs for Ghostface’s Supreme Clientele, Method Man’s Tical and Rza’s Bobby Digital in Stereo, along with his own solo albums.

Now, ID is prepping a collection of new beats for aspiring rappers to test their skills on. “I’ll have something for you within two or three months,” he revealed. [Watch below]

The Manifesto, which features appearances by Raekwon, Cormega, Billy Danze of M.O.P., among others, is in stores now. —Elan Mancini with reporting by Anslem Samuel

    I knew Deck was messing with the beats, this should be an interesting listen.

    And the cupboards are bare here @ XXL. No Bol for 2 days?

        Or becuase Lil Wayne is in jail, he can’t find no one else to hate on. I wanna hear this instrumental album, seems like it’ll be some good sounds on it.

    deck has been on the boards for a minute. he self produced the majority of his first album uncontrolled substance. just for the record, i thought manifesto was painfully wack.

    l think Manifesto is the best Wu album in the last few years!

    @ Amonraa, to each his own, but nothing on it really caught me, i thought after hearing deck’s verse on black mozart he might have made a album worth listening to, but i was wrong.

      Like you said to each his own, l like the album it is way better than wu massacre in my opinion cuz l don like artist doig the same music in 2010 like they did back in 1998.

    i understand what you’re saying, it’s hard for an artist to mature and grow while still keeping the “if it’s not broke don’t fix it” mentality. in the case of deck’s album, it doesn’t seem to mesh together as if it was just a bunch of random recordings thrown together, and i feel the same way about the wu massacre album as well.
