Think Differently Music: Wu-Tang Meets the Indie Culture - 10/18/05

from pitchforkmedia:

Wu-Tang to Collaborate With Indie Hip-Hop Elite
Rob Kleckner reports:

Babygrande Records has formed a joint venture with Dreddy Kruger's Think Differently Music Group. No one knows exactly what this means, what with that shadowy Wu-Tang Clan involved, but we do know that it means a whole bunch of Clan activity coming our way-- and that can't be bad news.

So far, three projects are lined up, the first of which will be Think Differently Music: Wu-Tang Meets the Indie Culture. Babygrande's official site describes this as "an unprecedented pairing of Wu-Tang artists, producers, and affiliates with some of independent hip-hop's East and West Coast elite. RZA, MF Doom, GZA, Rass Kass, Aesop Rock, Masta Killa, Del the Funky Homosapien, Sean Price, J Live, Tragedy Khadafi, C-Rayz Walz, RA the Rugged Man, Littles, Cannibal Ox, Sunz of Man, Royal Fam, and many more artists, producers, and even award winning filmmaker Jim Jarmusch have come together for what will be a historic moment in hip-hop."

This'll be in stores on October 18, and the first single, "Biochemical Equation" featuring the RZA and MF Doom, will make its premiere on iTunes in August. Further projects will include solo albums from Wu-Tang affiliates Bronze Nazazreth and La the Darkman/Embassy Entertainment.

Of these pairings Dreddy Kruger says, "I learned how to make albums...the whole process of putting a record together from the RZA and Schott Free. It feels good to finally have my own situation to bring my conceptual thinking to hip-hop and I look forward to working with Babygrande to make it happen."

Sounds interesting. Could be phenomenal or really, really bad. Anyone hear anything from this yet?

Hmmm... If only El-P and RZA could make an album together...

Any new Wu music is a good thing.

Interesting, this should be good. I'm not much of a fan of the Wu, but listen to a lot of indie hip hop. Maybe this will get acts like Cannibal Ox some more exposure and a few new fans.

Anyone else picked this thing up? This cd is sick. I've been playing it non-stop for a while now.
