  7. We want the 36 Chambers sound. Enough with the soft ass Chorus. We want the raw and gritty, not the shinny and pretty

  11. An Open Letter to The Rza, from a true Wu-tang Fan

    Dear Rza aka Ruler-Zig-Zag-Zig-Allah aka Bobby Digital aka The Abbot aka Rza-rector,

    It is with nothing but the utmost respect and appreciation that I am writing to you in the first place. The world has heard the Clan's two singles "Keep Watch" and Ron O'Neal" and I must point out that surely you may have observed that the response has been lacklustre and somewhat lukewarm, if even that. In a nutshell, after a hiatus without a Clan album, we the fans deserve far better than you are currently giving us. What happened to "breaking through,like the Wu,unexpectedly"? The first three albums were out of the box and in a niche of their own, they did not pander to mainstream rap and trends at that time. They set they're own trends and lanes, this is what set apart Wu-tang from any other form of music out. And now you want to give us songs with an R&b singer on the hook, very cheesy and simply out of place hooks at that.
    I was first introduced to rap by my elder brother who always played his music really loud straight home from school. The year was 1995 and I was 10 years old. I clearly remember the first time I heard Wu-tang though. I was playing football outside in the courtyard when I heard this strange hypnotic melody wafting through the air. The piano loop was simple but amazing, I had never and have not ever again heard something like that whenn it comes to first time musical experiences. The tinkle of the piano, the hard drums and the steady plodding bass made me forget all about soccer and I ran inside to ask my brother what the hell he was playing. The song was none other than "Duel of the Iron Mic" by Gza. To this day that memory is forever ingrained in my brain, the lyrics are etched against a wall in my mind. I fell in love with hip-hop that day and have not looked back since.
    Fast forward to 2014, since 8 Diagrams we've heard Chamber Music (which was fantastic) and Legendary Weapons. They both had live sample based instrumentation and in my opinion Chamber Music came off waaay better. You have chosen to call the new album A Better Tomorrow, when I heard this the song with the same title off of Wu-tang Forever immediately came to mind. That track remains a classic gem, I've often wondered why it wasn't released as a single with its own video. I heard Ron O'Neal and cringed upon hearing singing about cheddar and whatnot. There is infinite potential in each of us and with nine guys in the best rap group of all time you guys can do better than Why are Jay Z fans happy? Because from time to time he still makes music for the fans regardless of his artistic direction at that particular given point in time. The same goes for other rap acts. The truth of the matter here is that when it comes to Clan albums,Wu-tang fans have been shortchanged since Iron Flag came out. Experimentation is all well and good, live instrumentation is the way of the future. but Rza you have to make your fans happy. Do not forget about us. If this is to be Wu-tang Clan's final curtain call MAKE YOUR FANS PROUD to rock that W and wave it in the air to prove that Wu-tang really is forever! Give the Wu-elemnts a chance to have some production input into the final album, make it an all inclusive project, there are so many great rapper and producers who were inspired by your production, let them have a chance to pay tribute for the final album.
    That way, there really WILL be a better tomorrow, not just for rap, not just for music, but for the whole world. Especially the children.

    Wu-tang Forever
    A true fan till the end
