Wu-Tang Clan sign with Warner Bros. Records, 'A Better Tomorrow' due Dec. 2
Warner Bros. Records announced Friday that it has signed a recording contract with Wu-Tang Clan. The rap group—composed of RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna — plans to put out its sixth album, A Better Tomorrow, on Dec. 2 to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
Wu-Tang Clan gained prominence in the early 90s as part of the New York City hip-hop scene. The group’s members famously used the notoriety generated by Wu-Tang’s debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), to launch successful solo careers on a number of labels. On Warner Bros., the group will look to build on the 40 million records it has sold worldwide.
Wu-Tang will first release A Better Tomorrow on Nov. 14 via a special-edition portable Bluetooth speaker, Mashable reports. Boombot REX will produce 3,000 of the speakers, which will retail for $79.99. One of the eight songs on the album will be exclusively released on the Bluetooth speaker.
