Wu-Tang Clan Will Release New Album On Black Friday

At the beginning of the year Wu-Tang Clan made headlines all over the United States when they announced that only one copy of their album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin would be released, the Clan has now announced a new strategy for the release of their new album, A Better Tomorrow.

Yesterday, RZA revealed that the album would be released around Black Friday or November 28, and that a limited edition Boombotix portable speaker would be released with five album tracks and three bonus tracks. He also added that only 3,000 would be made.

“I had the idea pop up into my head, for a while, about music being kind of disconnected to us. Of being so digitized and accessible, but yet not tangible,” said RZA as he described his motivation for the idea of the speaker.

“But this thing here, a tangible item, like your old Walkman or your old cassette, or your old record, that’s what this is bringing back,” he added.

What is your opinion on the idea of the speaker? Do you think it will be successful or a fail?

Kanye West: Best Album of the 21st Century, or Nah?

As heard in the past, Kanye West refers to himself as a creative genius. According to GQ magazine, West’s album; My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy -released in 2010- was named the best album of the 21st century. In the article, this is rationalized by the impact that the project has had; it also explains how powerful all of West’s projects have been.

“It could’ve been any one of the seven albums West released this century,” GQ says. “A portrait of a man seizing the spotlight, drowning in it, and then somehow finding a way to turn that harrowing experience into art. Anybody who wants to be famous or make music for a living—or do both at the same time—should be forced to listen to MBDTF first. The rest of us are free to enjoy it for the bloody, hard-won, titanic achievement that it is.”

In 2010, the album was reviewed by HipHopDX’s Editor-In-Chief at the time, Jake Paine; where it earned a 4.5 out of a 5.

“From nine-minute douchebag manifestos, to enlisting an A-list Grammy ensemble to piece-mealing his album out to the masses every Friday. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy defies logic and it ignores convention. Whether it’s acknowledging his mistakes, measuring his might, or fantasizing of wifing Kristina Rose, Kanye West finds a way to relate to all. He’s not forcing his hand, just reminding us that the biggest star we appointed in the last five years can still recognize our own fantasies, insecurities and desire for colorful music from his spaceship,” Paine wrote.

What is your opinion? Do you believe that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy deserves the tittle of best album?
