RZA Says Wu Tang Clan Is Teaming Up With Boombotix
RZA a.k.a Bobby Digital has some unique plans in store for Wu-Tang Clan's upcoming 20th anniversary album A Better Tomorrow. After receiving a reported $5 million for their previous project, RZA has linked up with music lifestyle product-maker Boombotix to create limited-edition special version of their new LP on a portable platform.
Each of the 3000 Wu-edition Boombat Rexs made will play music files from any Bluetooth device and will don the groups infamous “W’ logo. The Boombat will be embedded with eight songs from the album, including two unavailable-on-album instrumentals, and an exclusive song, "Big Horn B," in advance to the LP expected Black Friday release. The product will be sold solely on Zumiez.com.
The rapper told Billboard he sees the new partnership as a way to jump-start a moribund music market and hopefully offset the damage done by bootleggers and illegal downloaders by combining a unique music delivery system with technology for 21st century consumers. The new album is said to be a reflection of where the the group feels it is now musically after 20 years in the business.
