Following the success of their recently released Showtime documentary series and the new episode dropping this May 17, East Coast hip-hop titans Wu-Tang Clan recently announced that a new EP from the group would be arriving on the same day. Named after the show, the new project is titled Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics & Men, and will release exactly 25 years after the group’s infamous debut LP, Enter the Wu-Tang. Now the group has shared the first single off the EP, a track by Ghostface Killah and RZA titled “Off That Sh*t Again.”
Maintaining the iconic New York hip-hop sound, Ghostface and RZA lay down hot-laced bars over a battering boom-bap beat, which incorporates classic snares alongside a catchy piano accompaniment. RZA, of course, holds down the production side of things, with the two of them laying down their verses just like the group’s early days. It seems the crew hasn’t shuttered from their OG sound.
You can listen to “On That Sh*t Again” below. The new Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics & Men EP drops May 17.
