Super Wu: RZA - "Supaman" + Raekwon x Ghostface - "Batman & Robin"
Wonder Wu powers activate! The Wu-Tang Clan is clearly back in full swarm and today in particular seems like an all Wu everythang kinda day. In true fashion, Staten Island’s finest are at it again: RZA, Ghostface and Raekwon have had an eventful week summoning the inter-dimensional forces that bond the masterful collective, resulting in two separate releases from the supergroup today. The dry-spell is officially over and Wu disciples have a whole lot to rejoice over.
The first release comes in the form of a collaboration between RZA and Christian Rich dropping “Supaman,” a gritty throwback, featuring a sample Black Star fans will happily identify with. The track is equal parts savage and refined, giving us a peek at what Bobby Digital’s been up to since his directorial film debut.
Then on other side of the superhero-rapper multiverse, True Master dropped “Batman and Robin,” a track featuring Wu-Tang’s own dynamic duo; Ghostface and Raekwon. Featured on True’s compilation album Craftsmen, the track feels like a relic of the days of Wu’s past, boasting true-school sampling and hard kicks & snares. All during the same weekend when certain members of a certain clan expressed they were going to remix a certain track that was an alleged tribute to the great conglomerate of MCs(Looking at you Drizzy.) Needless to say, it feels good to know that the kings of Staten Island haven’t yet and apparently will not let up. Peep the super Wu below.
