The final album from New York hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan is reported to be released in July 2013, under the name A Better Tomorrow. This follows the claims of a concluding chapter to the Wu-Tang saga from assorted members. Little else is known at this time.
The stories about this album are all over the place. Every member says something different about whether or not it's even happening.

which tells me it'll suck since they don't seem to even know what they wanna do
Digging: Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92
Last couple haven't been great, but hopefully they'll go out big
Digging: Barrow - Though I'm Alone
wu-tang albums from the past 3 or 4 years have been pre good so i think this will be good
Digging: Night Sins - To London Or The Lake
Ill remain optimistic
yeah i feel like if they put their all into this it could be amazing. can't wait to see these G's this summer.
Digging: The Books - Lost And Safe
WU-TANG WU-TANG WU-TANG
Raekwon and Ghostface are still pretty good.
GZA should be able to get his shit together for this, but it's questionable.
Method Man and RZA have totally fallen off. Inspectah Deck and U-God were always weak links, and I'm sure they'll continue that trend.
Two moderately strong pieces, a question mark, and four serious handicaps. I would be amazed if this turns out to be any good.
Digging: Kauan - Pirut
Inspectah Deck has so many classic verses on 36 Chambers, I'd hardly say he's a weak link
geasoftime listen to czarface
ins is not a weak link
Deck is amazing on 36 chambers seriously. Even on the second album.
Digging: Thank You Scientist - Maps of Non-Existent Places
No, no, no. I didn't mean on 36 Chambers. I was replying to oltna's comment about their solo output. I don't think that anyone stood out as a weak link on 36 Chambers, that's why it's 36 Chambers - it's the most consistent and organic group hiphop album ever.
I hadn't heard about Czarface, though. Checking it now.
Meth has always been weak solo but when he makes a guest appearance he steals the show.
Meth wasn't always weak solo. Tical is real decent. Wu-Tang's first round of albums delivered, as a group and solo. They've been struggling to recapture the spirit of the golden days ever since. Except for Ghostface, GZA, and Raekwon. But, honestly, GZA really never came close to putting out something like Liquid Swords again. Ghostface and Raekwon both matched their solo debuts later in their careers.
dude Deck rules, solo and otherwise
probably my 4th or 5th favorite member, but on their group stuff he might be in the top 3
Digging: Grave Miasma - Odori Sepulcrorum
GZA, Raekwon, Ghostface, Masta Killa, ODB, Method Man, RZA, Inspectah Deck, U-God imo
I forgot about Masta Killa earlier. His first two albums were really good.
idk I think Uncontrolled Substance is better than anything Masta Killa has released (and it's better than most of the stuff Method Man and ODB put out)
Uncontrolled is definitely a solid (read: 3.5) album, but it's his only decent album. Masta Killa had two really decent albums though - No Said Date (4.25) and Made in Brooklyn (3.5). Tical is a 4. But, Inspectah Deck might trump ODB and RZA. Return to the 36 Chambers is a light 3.5 for me and RZA's best solo work was the Ghost Dog ST which isn't very impressive anyways.
I'm going to listen to Czarface and Uncontrolled Substance tomorrow or the next day though, just to make sure that I didn't overlook him in some way. I haven't listened to any of these albums other than Cuban Linx and Liquid Swords in a few years, so my memory might not be as sharp as it should be.
No Said Date really didn't do it for you?
these guys need to let it go and leave their legacy together in peace
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
fuck off, wu-tang are more relevant than ever these days. and their careers haven't been this consistently great in years.
they're as dead as odb rip
I'm gonna go make some popcorn. You guys want any popcorn?
andcas is a registered film buff and Wu-Tang expert
since you wanted to go there the man with the iron fists was garbage
Which Thatguyfromtheglasses reviewer did you get that opinion from?
andcas, buff my films please
andcas stop, quickly!
Digging: GIVE ME A HAND WITH THIS MACHINE GUN TO IGNITE IT IN YOUR AS - MILITARYGERALD COMMANDS ME TO DO SO I MUST
you actually liked that movie didn't you?
jokes on me I guess since I paid to see it
Haven't seen it
its a dec movie lol
andcas is fuking stupid
quit lying to yourself
terrible movie agreed w/blandcas still love wu though
Digging: Alexander Spit - Dillinger
as do I and all I hinted at is the new album will most likely be a mess
everyone for some reason is acting like I wished death on their family
pls stfu dam u fukin suc hard
brick and treb are hardly "everyone" lol
you know what I meant
i consist of half this sites userbase
everyone commenting here at the moment
classic editcas, and of course I know what you mean man, but you should know better, I mean this is the only hip-hop that treb thinks exists, and brick, well if he knew you and potsy were cool now he'd probably kill himself.
andcas has never even heard a pharrell album
that's a cold fact
he should stick to making beats where he belongs
no going to make a racist joke still fresh off a ban
what did you get banned for this time?
this was my first ban bud fuck you haha, i'm not really sure tbh, although I do have a few ideas.
well in that case hopefully you can make it your last aye
indeed contrary to my "tasteless" username I rarely delve into any "bannable" activity, it wasn't until lately that my posts got a bit belligerent due to my personal life being sub-par. I took a lot of my anger out on hillaryclit then i got banned, so there must have been a correlation.
I liked Man With The Iron Fists quite a bit. It was cheesy as hell and parts of it were bad but it was a light, fun movie IMO.
RZA's solo stuff is underrated though, and I think a lot of people overlook 6 Feet Deep. The Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack was pretty awesome, and his Bobby Digital stuff scores points because it's just supposed to be fun goofy hip-hop and succeeds. That stuff was never intended to be classic wu. Digi Snacks was pretty bad, but RZA's guest spots are almost always welcome additions to whatever track he's on. I find his delivery to be the most striking of the clan besides ODB's.
Raekwon is not good.
method man is by far the best all of the rest sound the same
lol troll harder
Inspektah Deck rules you fucknut.
Will go hard regardless.
Digging: HORSE the band - Desperate Living
Ghostface rules all of them. Hopefully this will be epic.
They are coming to my city this summer when I'm out of the country. I'm so mad.
Digging: Gorguts - Colored Sands
Gza is still my favorite.. if anything (in regards to his solo career), his production is just lacking. He desperately needs his cousin RZA in order to stay relevant.
Digging: Lamb of God - As the Palaces Burn
