If What You Say Is True (feat. Streetlife)
Label: eOne Music
The Saga Continues isn’t a proper Wu-Tang Clan album, but a Wu-Tang concept piece helmed by producer and longtime affiliate Mathematics. However, all of the surviving nine appears, and the sound sticks to the crunchy soul loops that once animated Wu-Tang classics like “C.R.E.A.M.” Highlights include Inspectah Deck and Redman’s “Lesson Learn’d,” and Method Man’s “Time is Money”; while RZA jumps on his preacher’s box and identifies societal issues in the black community on “Why Why Why.” This is definitely grown man’s rap, and listeners will recognize the windy flows and prideful bluster typical of old-school East Coast hip-hop.
