GZA Will Lecture at Harvard, Release New Album in 2012
GZA is giving a guest lecture at Harvard.
Yes, you read that sentence correctly.
On December 1st, the Wu-Tang Clan co-founder will deliver a lecture concerning about his music career and lyrical craft - or better put, "his Clan, his craft, and his creativity." The lecture will be hosted by Harvard's Black Men's Forum and will be followed by a Q&A. The event is open to the public.
According to a statement by the artist, he will visit the Broad Institute and the MIT Media Lab to meet with many of the institutes' scientists and thinkers to seek inspiration for his forthcoming album, which is to be released in 2012 through Babygrande Records.
For Wu-Tang fans, the news will come as a relief after the announcement GZA made earlier this year that Liquid Swords 2: The Return of the Shadowboxer, the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed 1995 album, has been postponed while he works on another as-yet-untitled album. Whenever work does continue on Liquid Swords 2, the album will mark the first time that GZA and RZA have collaborated for an entire album since 1995.
In Wu-Tang news, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah have both revealed that the group is working on a new studio album and should hit shelves around summer 2012. Next year will also see Ghostface's next album, Supreme Clientele Presents: Blue & Cream: The Wally Era, and the anticipated D-Block collaboration, Wu-Block.
2012 is aiming to be a big year for Wu-Tang.
