With the arrival of the multi-part Showtime Docuseries “Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men,” the seven track soundtrack– which bares the same name as the Showtime series– drops Friday, May 17th, and the first single “On That Sht Again” can be streamed right now, as reported by Pitchfork.
“On That Sht Again” is the brain-child of two Wu-Tang Alum, Ghostface Killah and RZA, and is filled with pure fanservice for the longtime supporters of the group. Ghostface Killah has been in the headlines recently for teaming up to collab with fellow hip-hop group Czarface, as mxdwn has reported on.
Listen to “On That Sht Again” below, and look out for the other six tracks, this Friday.
The single features a chill beat with heavy percussion that compliments the whisper style chorus and the brash spoken-word-style verses. RZA had this to say to Pitchfork in regards to the docuseries and accompanying soundtrack “‘Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men’ is the definitive docuseries that explores and reveals our careers spanning over 25 years, the accompanying soundtrack is a great dose of some of those Men back on those Mics again.”
The song is a glorious three minutes and twenty seconds full of praise for the Wu-Tang Clan and their career that has spanned over two decades. The Wu-Tang Clan recently made headlines when they announced that they will be going on a worldwide tour in honor of the groups 25th anniversary, as previously reported by Mxdwn. The tour began May, 10th in London and will end August, 2nd in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the X Games music festival with other A-list acts, such as Diplo, as previously reported by Mxdwn.
The other six tracks of the soundtrack are “Seen a Lot of Things,” by Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Harley, “Project Kids (Skit),” by Nas, “Do the Same as my Brother Do,” by RZA, “Yo, Is You Cheo (Skit),” by Cheo Hodari Coker, “Of Mics and Men,” by RZA, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna, and “One Rhyme (Skit),” by GZA and Masta Killa.
Support “Wu-Tang: Of Mics and Men” by watching on Showtime and buying the soundtrack this Friday. The first episode of “Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men” dropped on Friday, May 10th and will subsequently air on Fridays until the series completion.
