On the heels of dropping his fourth LP, Manifesto, Inspectah Deck is readying the release of his first instrumental album. 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.

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]
