Last year, Raekwon roared back into relevance with Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... Pt. II, an instant-classic piece of tangled, bloody-minded throwback rap and the best long-player in years from the extended Wu-Tang Clan family. And it looks like Rae's Wu-Tang comrade GZA may be attempting a similar trick right now, crafting a sequel to his eternally ice-cold 1995 masterwork Liquid Swords.
Wu-Tang figurehead RZA posted the news on his Twitter yesterday, also claiming that he'd produce the album: "IT'S TRUE: "LIQUID SWORDS 2" PRODUCED BY THE ABBOT RZA COMING FALL 2010. WHO'S READY FOR THE WU? BONG BONG". GZA's rep confirms that he's working on the album.
If this works out, hopefully we'll see even more sequels to that first wave of Wu-Tang solo albums. God knows an Ironman 2 from Ghostface Killah would be pretty amazing, even if it'd be too late for a movie tie-in. (Too bad we've already had underwhelming sequels to Method Man's Tical.)
