As you’re undoubtedly already aware, the wait for GZA‘s follow-up to 1995’s Liquid Swords, the aptly titled Liquid Swords 2: The Return of the Shadowboxer, has gotten ridiculously bad. As you’re also probably aware of, when we here at CoS lead any news story with such background info, the news is never pretty. This time, though, it’s not all bad: while The Genius is shelving the sequel for now, he’s still hard at work on another new album (via HipHopDX.com).
In a series of tweets, GZA revealed that the as-yet-untitled sixth LP would feature both audio and visual elements to and would be in “a league of its own”. Potentially adding more delays to the album, fellow Wu-Tang Clan member RZA, who GZA tapped as producer for Liquid Swords 2, is off in Shanghai making his directorial debut with Man With The Iron Fist, starring Russell Crowe. Well, it’s still got a long ways until it’s even bordering actual Chinese Democracy levels of absurdity
As always, stay tuned for more updates as they’re announced.
