I know I’m not alone in being disappointed by the leaks from Wu-Tang Clan’s comeback album, A Better Tomorrow, so far. That all changed when I hit play on the latest preview track, “Necklace,” which actually sounds like something the Wu would want to record together. What I mean is that there’s no overtly live production or terrible hook, just straight up bars from a collection of the crew’s MCs. As a huge Ghostface Killah fan, I’m partial to his verse—the line about girls licking his necklace is equally disgusting/typical/nostalgic—but everyone who spits holds it down here.
You can hear “Necklace” below and pre-order A Better Tomorrow here. It drops Dec. 2.
