U-God & DJ Green Lantern Release Full Bring Back God II Mixtape (Audio)
UPDATE: U-God and DJ Green Lantern have released Bring Back God II, available for full stream and free download. Additionally, the Wu-Tang Clan MC revealed his fifth solo album, Venom, will release March 6 through Babygrande Records.
Additionally, the Wu-Tang Clan member has announced a series of concerts for the mixtape, album, and book dates, for upcoming memoir, Raw: My Journey Into The Wu-Tang:
ORIGINAL DECEMBER 4, 2017 STORY: U-God does not appear on this year’s Wu-Tang Clan album. The Staten Island, New York representative sued RZA and his group for more than a million dollars one year ago for unpaid royalties. However, he and Method Man were all in it together during an appearance (in support of SWV) at last month’s Soul Train Awards.
Now, U-God is working with one of Hip-Hop’s most beloved mixtape creators, DJ Green Lantern. The Rochester, New Yorker who has worked with 50 Cent, Nas, and Tupac’s catalog is now recharging U-God’s career. On February 2, 2018, the DJ/producer teams with Golden Arms and Dat Piff for Bring Back God II. To set things off, he remixed one of the Wu-Tang MC’s more popular recent tracks, “Fire.” The song also features its original 2015 vocals from Meth’ and Scotty Wotty. Previously, Green created an EDM remix to Wu classic “C.R.E.A.M.”
The original “Fire” appeared on 2015’s The Keynote Speaker. The MC is working on Venom. Last year he dropped the single of the same name seemingly addressing his relationship with the Clan. According to AllHipHop, the “Killa Hill Ni**az” MC is also preparing Picador Books memoir, Raw: My Journey Into The Wu-Tang for next year. In late 2008, the first installment of the Bring Back God series was released with DJ Y-Not (aka Twilite Tone).
This year, Green Lantern worked on Royce 5’9’s Bar Exam 4 and the Griselda Records roster of Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, and Benny.
