Wu-Tang Clan ft. RZA - Only The Rugged Survive
While looking for a book at Barnes & Noble (yeah, gangsters like to read), I came across a chess tournament in full effect. The matches were full of various types, ranging from Russian nationals to thirteen-year old Asian Bobby Fischers. I instantly reached into my backpack and pulled out my iPod and turned it straight to Enter the Wu-Tang. Little did I know then that the almighty Wu Tang Clan would be releasing a new album in the form of Wu Tang Legendary Weapons, the follow up to 2009’s Wu Tang Chamber Music. Produced by Noah Rubin, who crafts a beat that’s minimal in all the right places, lead single Only The Rugged Survive is exactly what you’d expect from the Wu; a head-nodding track with nonstop rapping duties handled by RZA in its entirety (no, I don’t know what he’s talking about sometimes either, but he sounds dope). So the next time you’re wandering around your local book store, look out for the kids in the back playing chess, you never know, you might find some Staten Islanders there, and look out for Legendary Weapons, dropping June 28.
