Inspectah Deck Is Terminating Wack MCs Who Are Trying To Change The Game (Video)
Inspectah Deck is gearing up for his second release of 2019. The Wu-Tang Clan co-founder has had a busy year, even beyond music. Deck’s story was prominently featured in Sacha Jenkins’ documentary, Wu-Tang: Of Mics & Men. Joey Bada$$ is playing the Rebel INS in the upcoming Wu-Tang: An American Saga, with the trailer made available to the public at the top of this month. These developments all followed the latest album from Deck’s CZARFACE collective (with 7L & Esoteric). February’s Czarface Meets Ghostface linked the trio with INS’ Shaolin brother, Tony Starks.
Now, Inspectah Deck is focused on Chamber #9, his first solo album since 2010. Heads get the first glimpse of the album care of “Game Don’t Change.” Rock Davis directs the Terminator 2-inspired mini-movie that sees Deck as a Sci-Fi hero. At the end of his r*fle appears to be a boom mic, not a barrel. INS rebels against a culture of mediocre MCs that leaves the wackness laid out on the asphalt. Not unlike “Luke Cage,” Deck fights his cause within the five boroughs as a backdrop. With his special T2-like sunglasses, the Wu-Tang O.G. inspects the data he receives on weak MCs before he pulls back.
“Game Don’t Change” features a Soul backdrop including a vocal sample, courtesy of Boo Bundy. While Kanye West, Just Blaze, The Heatmakerz, and others re-popularized the sound in the 2000s, RZA was among the pioneers of the style, as heard more than 25 years ago on Wu-Tang Clan’s “Tearz.”
Chamber #9 releases tomorrow, July 12. It features contributions from Cappadonna and Streetlife, among others.
