RZA has heaped praise on André 3000’s debut album New Blue Sun.
The album, which is entirely instrumental and made up of the OutKast legend playing the flute, has struck a chord with the Wu-Tang Clan founder and inspired him to pursue a similar path.
Speaking to TMZ, RZA said: “That album is on repeat in my house. Me and my wife, we just sit down and it keeps us very zen in the crib. It had me washing dishes! It’s a good vibe.”
He added: “André, congratulations. I’m actually gonna do another instrumental album myself. Hip Hop is going to show you that there’s no limits to what we do.”
When asked if his new project will “save” Hip Hop, The Abbot replied: “Hip Hop don’t need saving, Hip Hop is just growing. Hip Hop is like New York City — another skyscraper, baby.”
