RZA won't discuss any matters regarding when fans might expect a new release from the group, but the producer was more than happy to share some of the details of his forthcoming international album, W.A.R.: The World According To RZA, which will feature European stars such as IAM, Supacrew, Dido, Petter, and Xavier Naidoo.
On the set of the video shoot for GZA's latest single Knock Knock on Tuesday night (October 15), RZA told that he was mixing the forthcoming set.
"I got an international album that's already recorded. We're mixing right now. It's called W.A.R. We break down the word 'war'--it's called The World According To RZA--and what
I did with this particular album is I travelled throughout the European countries, 'cause Europe, many countries have grass hip-hop, you know what I mean, because they're living the
same struggle we're living in one form or another. So when I out there got some of the most prominent artists, gave them some fat beats, and they kicked some banging joints on it. So, for the first time you could hear hip-hop in many languages, like Turkey--who thought that somebody would ever rap in Turkish and be on beat?"
RZA also shared one of his more memorable experiences while travelling abroad. "I went to Beijing. I seen kids with jumpers and do-rags, all Chinese, a thousand, club full, like this, bong, like this, smoking cigarettes like it was a blunt. I came in, they bugged out. They threw the song on, they knew every word to the lyrics, but they don't speak our language."
No release date has been set yet for W.A.R.: The World According To RZA.
