Cappadonna, Raekwon, Ghostface, and GZA lace the new cut “Necklace” off A Better Tomorrow, still slated for a December 2nd release. A true head nodder as the grimy delivery matches a complimenting production I’m imagining blares through a dark rap basement setting.
UPDATE: “Ron O’Neil” is now in CDQ form here. Plus, official video below.
A historic hip hop moment happened tonight… on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart of all places. All 9 living members of Wu-Tang (counting quasi-member Cappadonna, GZA, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, Raekwon & RZA — that’s right) reunited for the first time all together. They spoke with the great Stewart and then proceeded to premiere a new record off their upcoming reunion album, A Better Tomorrow, dropping this November called “Ron O’Neil”. They also performed “Triumph”. I’m sure your giddy at this point and surfing these Instagram clips below. Stay tuned for an update of official video when it drops.

The title alone has so much potential. Nardwuar’s latest guest is the legendary Wu-Tang Clan as he spoke with RZA, Ghostface Killah, U-God, Cappadonna, Masta Killa and Raekwon in Vancouver this past weekend. The always entertaining Nardwuar has much to say to these gents, and given everyone’s history in the game and of course the influence of Wu-Tang itself, this interview could dig deep in various directions. And it did. Enjoy! It’s 24 minutes, about double Nardwuar’s usual interviews.
