RZA shepherded members of the Wu-Tang Clan for a new LP titled Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues. RZA executive produced the album that’s “crafted by” his beat-making associate DJ Mathematics. The album comes out October 13th. The album’s first single “People Say” features the Wu’s Method Man, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck and Masta Killa alongside Method Man’s frequent collaborator Redman trading verses over a soul sampled-beat courtesy of Mathematics.
RZA explaining its genesis says: “There was a young brother that was our deejay. He was working construction. I hired him to draw the Wu-Tang logo. His name was Allah Mathematics. And he always was in the shadows doing the knowledge..He learned how to make beats and produce and after a while—when I became a composer I became further and further away from the sound of Wu-Tang I mean I don’t use the ASR-10 anymore…Mathematics stayed right there with it. So he was really given the task and he took the task upon himself to go and start having the members re-energize their verses to the classic Wu-Tang sound. After he got it to a certain degree, he was like, “I’m going to come over and show you where we’re at.” He showed me and I was like, “Yo, The Saga Continues.”
