i don't want a ghost produced album. keep rza on board. do what you guys did for your first 3 group albums. just show up for your studio session. don't be emailing verses. lock yourselves in the studio until it's complete. if everyone is together in the same spot, their is cohesiveness. yes rza will be making the final decisions, but with 8 other people there, rza can get feedback and come to a decision.
If they just all got into the studio together like they used to, and made decisions as a group, the shit would be fire.....cause they would all be there brainstorming and shit.
If you got Ghost and Rae comin to the studio at 1, then Meth not comin till like 5, then Deck comin at 9pm, but oh wait, GZA is emailing his verses in, there is no cohesion and the shit sounds whack.....
When you askin RZA to be the point man, producer, sequencer, etc and cut and paste verses together without any other input the shit gonna sound all haphazard.
Get niggas into the studio, have them lay down each verse they got and battle to be on the track and compete like they used to. If your shit is garbage (ahem, GZA) then your ass ain't gettin on the track.
