The members of Wu-Tang have been releasing solo projects for years. While Method Man, Ghostface and Raekwon have been in the media discussing their next solo efforts, GZA is also hard at work on his as well.
In an interview with FADER, the New York rap legend talked about his next album, entitled Dark Matter.
“I’m working on an album. Dark Matter. …Constantly writing,” GZA explained. “It’s inspired by the universe. Planets, elements, everything that’s around us. I’m putting those facts together, and making a story out of it.”
The LP is due this fall. Last year, he said the concept for the project has been in his head for years.
“I’ve written about the universe and stars and galaxy and incorporate different things into my music. Dark Matter is coming out, it’s a journey into the cosmos. It’s an idea I had for years, and I just decided last year that I wanted to do this,” he said. “I was interested in science at a very early age, but not to the point where I wanted to go to school and study and be a physicist. Just learning things about the stars and planets, the workings of the atoms and molecules and elements and knowing that we are part of this whole universal structure and it’s all fascinating. It’s something to write about.”
A list of guests, producers, etc. were unknown at press time.
