RZA To Collaborate With Atari For Album Composed With 8-Bit Sound and Songs
RZA, one of the founding members of the legendary rap group Wu-Tang Clan, is teaming up with Atari to make a new album that uses sounds inspired by classic 8-bit games.
In a press release with Billboard about the upcoming album, RZA stated, “I’m so excited to work on these iconic games to deliver what I believe will be one of my best albums. I am going to invite some of my friends to join me and it will be Game On with the first beat!”
It will be interesting to see how the man who produced albums like Liquid Swords transitions into a project that seems to be so much different than the music that he is known for.
RZA is no stranger to working with Atari, as he provided voice work for their 2006 title Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure.
Lets just hope that the album ends up better than some of RZA's more recent endeavours, Man With The Iron Fists, and unfortunately, Man With Iron Fists 2, because those movies were kind of awful.
