I think it’s no secret that Wu-Tang Clan are known more for their status as almost mythological icons than they are for their music these days. With the debacle that was ‘Pharma Bro’ Martin Shkreli not helping their cause any more. To put it frankly, their last few projects just haven’t been all that good. But, I’m happy to report that The Saga Continues is one of their best albums in recent memory and it was really that great feeling of finding something again that I didn’t even know I missed – especially when it comes to Method Man. This was all thanks in large part to the fantastic work of their longtime DJ, Mathematics. He really brought back that classic Wu-Tang feel and sound that RZA, admittedly, just hasn’t been in touch with in a long time. The other members of the group must have felt the same way too because they all sound extremely energized and deliver some serious verses. The album could have done with a few less tracks however and things begin to drag a bit towards the end (I still hate hearing RZA on the mic), but damn if the good doesn’t far outweigh the bad here.
“If y’all can hear me, I guarantee you the feds listening
So I be spittin’ in barcode
Nothin’ left in the tap, dog, and after the last call, the bar close
This my Cohiba, cigar blow
Even Tony Stark knows the tension is thick as Wallabee Clark soles”
