RZA is adding another bullet point to his lengthy resume with a new partnership with Atari, Billboard can exclusively report. The Wu-Tang Clan rapper/producer, actor and video game fanatic will be recording an album chock-full of original tracks inspired by the sounds of Atari game music.
“I’m so excited to work on these iconic games to deliver what I believe will be one of my best albums,” RZA said in a statement sent to Billboard. “I am going to invite some of my friends to join me and it will be Game On with the first beat!”
The partnership marks RZA and Atari's second collaboration after the Brooklyn multi-hyphenate (born Robert Diggs) helmed the voice-over for Atari's 2006 title Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure.
