Start your week off right with a heaping portion of Wu-Tang Flan! Now I want there to be a whole universe of Wu-Tang food. Cappadonna ham, Method Man M&Ms, Red Zelvet Angel Food Cake (RZA Cake!), Ghostpepper Chili, Raekwon Kim Chi, and GZA Gumbo and more need to be purchased. Let’s make this happen.
Wu-Tang’s next album will be sold in an extremely small run. Total number of copies? One. That’s right. Forbes released a piece detailing the purpose & aims, which can be found here. Apparently, the album will never be released in digital format and will only be available to be heard at festivals, galleries, museums and showcases, as if a traveling painting. I cannot over-emphasize how much I like this idea (with Bob Lefsetz) backing me up. The buzz created just from the Forbes article is enough that it’s worth the action. This will be one of the most sought-after works in the world. I’ll pay $30 to go listen to it after giving up my cell phone & listening in sponsored Beats headphones or something, so will everyone else. Or, I’ll just listen at Coachella or Electric Zoo. Is there a Wu-Tang Booth somewhere at Miami Music Week? We’ll find out.

RZA & the late Paul Walker were a bit closer than I’d previously assumed. With the untimely & tragic death of Paul Walker, RZA took some time out to pay tribute to a friend. A demo featuring Will Wells for a brief but fulfilling friendship. It must be weird to become famous, realize you’re surrounded by fake people, then connect with someone who is bewildered by the same things. Check it out, and don’t speak ill of the dead.
