There”s a good chance the long-overdue and final album from Wu-Tang Clan will see the light of day this year. The legendary rap collective just dropped “Keep Watch,” the first single off its new album “A Better Tomorrow.” Listen below.
The soulful song pairs GZA, Method Man, Cappadonna and Inspectah Deck”s spitfire verses with a chorus from Brooklyn-based singer Nathaniel. Longtime Wu-Tang producer DJ Mathematics provides a classic 90s beat.
Last November, RZA said the new album was about six weeks away from completion and that “everybody did their verses except Raekwon.” This week, Raekwon tweeted “Keep dreaming,” which could be a reference to the new song and his lack of participation. With or without him, “A Better Tomorrow” is now available for pre-order – and though no release date has been announced – its arrival seems imminent.
