Reason has been hard at work on his new album, Azania. Although it has not been released yet, the album is shaping up to be one to look out for. First, there was the title track featuring South African treasure, Sibongile Khumalo and produced by American producer-DJ, Swizz Beatz.
This week, Reason put out a follow-up to that track. It’s called "Wu Tang" and it features none other than Frank Casino. The song, surprisingly, doesn’t have any overt relation to one of the greatest hip-hop groups of all time.
Sure, Reason mentions Shaolin and other associations but most people were expecting the beat to sample Wu or something like that. That’s not to say Reason’s song doesn’t bang, because it does.
The sentiment of the song is that he endeavours to sit at the table of success with the same people that he’s starving with his whole squad. This obviously means the people he knows personally but it sounds like he extends it to his real followers and aims to inspire the next generation.
Reason tweeted: “I've chosen to avoid getting twitter influencers and posts. Cause I believed #Wutang was fire. Meaning it should trend naturally. Please prove me right so the next kid without "Twitter influencers" can believe in the music they do!! (sic)”
