The news release also the following quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
The Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA talked to Billboard about A Better Tomorrow — which was released on Dec. 2 — earlier this year.
“It’s a record to me that merges the way music was made in the classic essence… [with] what’s going down the digital way. All the entire 10 Clan members are on it.” The album follows a character who “realizes that it’s best sometimes to walk away from the past and all the bad times and maybe work on making his life better, and making a better tomorrow.”
