    Default WU-TANG to reunite, new album out this summer

    NOW WHY CAN'T WE GET ALL OF WU-TANG INSTEAD OF JUST GHOSTFACE???




    Wu-Tang Clan's reunion with Loud Records founder Steve Rifkind is official, as the group has announced a new album titled 8 Diagrams, which will hit stores this summer on Rifkind's SRC label, through Universal Records.

    8 Diagrams, which is named after a Kung-Fu epic, is the the first new album from Wu-Tang Clan in six years.

    The album will feature RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon the Chef, Ghostface Killah, Inspektah Deck, Masta Killa and U-God, all original members of the Wu-Tang Clan.

    The new album will also contain an unreleased performance that will show fans why deceased group member Ol' Dirty Bastard "was considered one of the illest MCs ever," before dying of a heart attack in Nov. 2004.

    “This is the perfect time for us to come back, the stars are aligned,” RZA said. “It’s like when we first started with Steve. We put out real hip-hop at a time when it was turning into pop or R&B. We brought the focus back to the music in its rawest form, without studio polish or radio hooks.”

    RZA founded the group with GZA and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard, who is memorialized on the song “Life Changes."

    The group has released several groundbreaking albums including Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (1993), Wu-Tang Forever (1997) and 2001's Iron Flag.

    According to the RZA, the new album will be a "conjunction of creative and corporate thinking by the whole group.”

    “People want something that gives them an adrenaline rush,” RZA continued. “We’re here to supply that fix. How could hip-hop be dead if Wu-Tang is forever? We’re here to revive the spirit and the economics and bring in a wave of energy that has lately dissipated.”

    The reunion with Rifkind comes as the seasoned music industry veteran is enjoying a banter year.

    Akon's SRC/Universal sophomore release Konvicted was recently certified platinum, after five weeks of being on the shelves.

    “The energy is just like it was, and it’s needed in our industry same as back then,” Rifkind said. “Over the last few years, the group has developed a whole new fan base of 20-year-olds and even younger who’ve never even seen them play.”

    OH YEA, I WOULD MUCH RATHER SEE WU-TANG PERFORM INSTEAD OF RHCP, SO THAT WOULD BE PERFECT TIMING AS FAR THE SET TIMES GO.

    8 dudes running around on stage yelling over each other into mics, is a waste of 40 dollars.

    Wu-Tang would fucking pwn. The RZA was a judge at the finals for the battle of the bands at my high school two years ago. They're all so awesome.

    I saw them at Rock The Bells in Concord... it was your typical unorganized rap show with 10 people on stage all yelling the same lyric, and a DJ that couldn't decide what track he wanted to play next. Disappointing to say the least.

    Thought seeing that again would be better than RHCP.

    i would love to see them..only problem is wouldn't it be very chaotic? I mean nothing will get played and it will just be 8 guys running around the stage stoned? I have seen some footage and heard from some people...It would be very entertaining though...

    I could really care less for the Wu... However, putting them before Rage Against The Machine is a beautiful idea. All the Rage fans would probably better appreciate the Wu before Rage. I fear for the crap these ignorant fans will put upon Air and Manu Chao.
