GZA, Raekwon, Cappadonna and RZA join forces on impromptu Wu reunion 'Face The Problemzz'

Whilst that 20th anniversary album takes shape, here’s something to tide Shaolin acolytes over.

‘Face The Problemzz’ is nominally a Mathematics cut, but gazing at the personnel – GZA, Raekwon and Cappadonna, with RZA on the instrumental  – it’s hard not to take the track as an informal Wu joint. GZA talks metaphysics and foreign war; Raekwon, as Raekwon is wont to do, sketches police chases and shady deals; and Cappadonna, for some reason, tries out a strange Georgia twang. RZA’s beat, meanwhile, boasts a hook (“We must replace what we took out of the ground”) that sounds like a Ramblers Association guideline.

‘Face The Problemmz’ is taken from Mathematics’ forthcoming The Answer LP, due on April 16. [via Complex]
