In early 2012, GZA announced a new solo album entitled Dark Matter that would be the first in a series of albums that the Wu-Tang rapper will release over the next few years, and put together in a way to get a wide audience hooked on science. At the time GZA revealed the album, he said that it would be released in fall of 2012. Since the initial announcement of the album, there has been very little talk of it, until now as he gives a brief update.
During a recent interview with The Fader, GZA spoke on his forthcoming Dark Matter album, and says he his constantly writing for the project.
I’m working on an album, Dark Matter it’s called. I’m just constantly writing.
As the Wu rapper continued, he spoke on the album’s concept:
It’s inspired by the universe; planets, elements, and everything that’s around us. I’m putting those facts together, and making a story out of it.
