REWIND: The Truth About The Wu-Tang Clan’s Return
November 2013 will mark twenty years since the release of Wu-Tang Clan‘s debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). While the chatter of a reunion is humming louder than a swarm of killer bees, Cappadonna recently cut through the rumors with a few words on the subject.
“I already spoke to the RZA,” Cappadonna told Radio.com. “We’ve been texting each other. We’re definitely concentrating on more positivity and teachings and trying to put that back into the original recipe for this next Wu-Tang album.”
Cappadonna, who is best known for his breakout verse on Wu-Tang’s hit single “Ice Cream,” said he’s preparing for another Wu-Tang session.
“The recording has begun,” he said. “I’m on tour and I will be doing more recording for the Wu album in the next week or so.”
The “tenth member” also offered some insight into the Wu recording process, which hasn’t changed in over twenty years.
“It’s all be ing done in the secret Wu-Tang Bat chamber,” Capoadonna joked. “RZA has all the tracks lined up. There are recordings taking place in New York, L.A. and perhaps at the Wu mansion in New Jersey.”
While he has yet to hear the music, he said the RZA is still in control.
“A lot of the tracks are lined up and already there,” he said. “We all have to get a date and go there and submit verses. At that time, he [RZA] may give you a topic or you might hear something going on already. That’s how he designs the songs.”
While Cappadonna is readying his Wu-Tang verses, he’s also promoting his seventh studio album Eyrth, Wynd & Fyre that dropped in February.
