Almost ten years ago, Wu-Tang architect RZA began working with System Of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjian on a project they stamped Achozen. And while scheduling, according to a Rolling Stone interview, was the debilitating factor in getting their record to the world, yesterday, the perfect culmination of energies (and business dealings) led to the release of an album that nobody knew was coming, and even less knew they actually wanted to hear.
But, like seemingly anything that comes from Bobby Digital and his many, many associates these days, the album was exclusively released and is only consumable via embedded audio on a Boombotix portable speaker, making this a RZA record you’re somehow even less likely to hear. At a whopping $120, the Wu wizard has managed to dang some musical meat in front of the masses once again, hoping that he’ll get someone to bite. And so, if you’re really keen on hearing what RZA & Odadjian’s sound like on tape, you can hit the link below to grab your octagonal music box. But honestly, you should probably just hold off for the leak. Here’s hoping that RZA starts making it a little easier for us to funk with him. Listen to one of the album’s cuts below for a taste of what you’ll almost absolutely be missing.
