The Wu-Tang Clan’s “A Better Tomorrow” Provides Live Instrumentation, Classic Production and Incredible Social Awareness

One week after the release of The Wu-Tang Clan‘s 20th-anniversary album “A Better Tomorrow,” we are still left in awe of word play, attention to detail and social awareness from the famous New York-based crew.

Bringing live instrumentation to classic RZA production this album stacks up next to the classics that the crew has released over the years.  Showing that Wu-Tang is forever we hear all members express unmatched wordplay while staying relevant to current social issues and industry expectations, not that this has ever been a problem.

From the power punching track “Ruckus In B Minor” to the inspiration filled tracks “A Better Tomorrow” and “Never Let Go” this album contains a deep cut for every Wu fan out there.

Responding to the controversy surrounding the non-indictment of the police officers involved in the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, The Wu-Tang Clan released this message along with a new video for their title track.

This visual was created by Wu-Tang Clan in the hopes of inspiring change and promoting unity throughout the world.”

The mixture of live footage along with the socially engaging track repeating the famous chorus “The world won’t get no better / If we just let it be / The world won’t get no better / We got to change it, yeah, just you and me” makes for a powerful visual for all to see.
