RZA & Ghostface Killah Continue The Wu-Tang Saga With Help From The Roots (Video)
Just hours after releasing The Saga Continues, Wu-Tang Clan was on network television promoting an album that stands as one of their best in several years. While Method Man is a key lyrical component on the LP with his DJ, Mathematics at the helm, it was the Wu Abbott, The RZA, Ghostface Killah, and Cappadonna who represented on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Performing one of the album’s more relationship-savvy cuts, “My Only One,” Tony Starks donned the fur for fall, as he raps about his wiz. RZA takes the next verse, driving the song into a less tender direction. He raps about the lies and deception in relationships, even when things are great. Cappa’ closes things out with a verse, and his signature rich and gravely voice. Questlove and The Roots beef up a take on Mathematics’ track with crisp, pounding drums. Math’ scratches.
Steve Latorre is the singer who drives the hook. In the ’90s MCA/Geffen days, The Roots were label-mates with GZA, Killah Priest, and Sunz Of Man. At Def Jam in the mid-2000s, they shared infrastructure with Ghost’ and Meth’. In 2012, theses outfits rocked some Wu classics together on Fallon. Currently, Black Thought and Method Man are starring on HBO series The Deuce. Both spoke to Ambrosia For Heads about their roles, and new music, respectively, last week—following a show-stopping tandem Sway In The Morning freestyle.
