Wu-Tang Clan’s U-God Is Releasing a Memoir Next Year
For all you anxious Wu-Tang Clan fans awaiting The Saga Continues, U-God has something else in store come 2018. No, it's not previously unreleased music that was purchased for $2 million, but it is the next best thing—a book.
U-God has just announced his memoir, RAW: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang Clan, is set to hit bookstores early next year, with a scheduled debut in March. "It’s time to write down not only my legacy, but the story of nine dirt-bomb street thugs who took our everyday life—scrappin’ and hustlin’ and tryin’ to survive in the urban jungle of New York City—and turned that into something bigger than what we could possibly imagine," says Golden Arms of the book. "Something that took us out of the projects for good, which was the only thing we all wanted in the first place.”
According to Pitchfork, RAW: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang Clan will chronicle U-God's life from his childhood to the Wu's "Protect Ya Neck" and their following success.
Last year there, were reports the Clan was having difficulties after U-God sued RZA for royalty discrepancies. In court, he alleged he'd written well over 150 tracks during the crew's career, but did not receive any royalties for the past six years.
At the end of 2016, U-God dropped "Venom," a single serving as the title track for his forthcoming album, due out before the year's end. “We goin’ through hell, we tryna get it right,” he spits about the Clan. Buy "Venom" on iTunes and stayed tuned for more information on RAW: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang Clan.
