RZA has found yet another way to make his music interesting. The Wu-Tang leader is partnering up with Atari to produce an album made up entirely of video game sounds.

We may have found the reason why RZA practically told Ghostface “you do it” when it comes to producing the next Wu-Tang album. He’s going to have both of his hands tied making a new solo album with video game-inspired sounds.


“I’m so excited to work on these iconic games to deliver what I believe will be one of my best albums,” RZA said in a statement sent to Billboard. “I am going to invite some of my friends to join me and it will be Game On with the first beat!”

This will be the second RZA has works with the iconic company. He did voice-over work for them back in 2006 on the graffiti-centered video game Mark Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure.

“We are thrilled to partner with RZA, one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time,” said Atari CEO Fred Chesnais to Billboard. “RZA is a multi-talented artist and soundtrack virtuoso and we cannot wait to hear the new tracks he creates based on Atari’s iconic video game sounds and music.”

RZA will not be working alone. He is teaming with Atari’s in-house producers Chesnais and Stephen Belafonte. More details will be revealed on a later date.
