RZA is teaming up with Atari to make an album full of songs inspired by Atari video game music, as Billboard reports. It’s the second time the Wu-Tang Clan member has worked with the company after he provided the voice-over for a character in Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure in 2006. “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. “I am going to invite some of my friends to join me and it will be Game On with the first beat!”
Atari CEO Fred Chesnais added: “We are thrilled to partner with RZA, one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time. 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 is also currently working on Banks & Steelz, his upcoming collaboration with Interpol’s Paul Banks.
