This song is nuts. The Hip Hop pioneers and innovators De La Soul continue their unstoppable career with this next classic “GET AWAY” featuring The Spirit of the Wu. Wu Tang Clan doesn’t literally perform on the track, but what they did was use samples of RZA and co. talking over an intro from Wu Tang Forever, so snippets of the Wu saying things like “this is Hip Hop right here, this is lyrics”, are seamlessly woven between De La’s lyrics. As De La pronounces “And like the Wu, we bring it to you in the purest form,” and “I just do this, I don’t have to.” Understood. And much appreciated!
“I’ve always loved the ‘Intro’ on Disc Two of Wu-Tang Forever – this erie sample with no beat, that they only talked over,” De La Soul’s Posdnuos said.”I stumbled on the original sample while crate digging one day, took it straight to the lab and added drums. The feel is definitely gritty, hard and sounds like a Wu record, so out of inspirational respect, we included featuring ‘The Spirit of the Wu’ in the song title.”
De La Soul’s “Your Welcome” drops in the Fall, but not before Wu Tang’s next album “A Better Tomorrow” drops in the Summer!
