A Better Tomorrow is the sixth studio album by American hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan. The album was released on December 2, 2014, by Warner Bros. The album was supported by the singles "Keep Watch", "Ron O'Neal" and "Ruckus in B Minor". The album debuted at number 29 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 24,386 copies in its first week of release.

Produced by 4th Disciple. Album Wu-Tang Forever. A Better Tomorrow Lyrics. A Better Tomorrow cointains a sample of The Love Theme From Romeo and Juliet (A Time for Us) by Peter Nero. A Better Tomorrow" Track Info.

Текст песни: Wake u. ake up Wake u. ake up, get a hold of your life, go get your cake up The motto in the streets is you eat, or you get ate up Straight up, you tired of waiting, go get your weight up My peoples tired of waiting for reparations to pay us Screaming Jesus can save us, I, I get the Bentley if I save up But that’s just another trick to enslave us Push the minimum wages Put, put our fathers up in them cages Then watch out when mother struggled to raise us But, but my ambition won’t let me live in this poor condition.

Sampling New Track, 'Ruckus in B Minor'. A Better Tomorrow arrives seven years after the last proper Wu album, 2007’s 8 Diagrams, which awkwardly attempted to push the iconic rap group’s sound forward with experimental arrangements and unexpected collaborations. In contrast, A Better Tomorrow is very much a back-to-basics entry in the mighty Wu catalog, brimming with soul blasts, kung-fu dialogue and elder-statesmen sloganeering that would sound tired if it wasn’t coming from such trusted sources

The Wu-Tang Clan’s seminal debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) turned 20 last fall, commemorated in a litany of glowing reminiscences and a lengthy intercontinental festival tour. There was a clean-cut finality to the proceedings, a sense that the group was sending off a movement that had finally run its course. Tense negotiations and a reconciliation followed, but A Better Tomorrow arrives this week illuminating the early apprehensions. The production here is more of a piece with the muscular soundtrack work of RZA’s 2012 directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists than anything bearing the Wu-Tang name, barring the heavily orchestrated bits of 2007’s 8 Diagrams that inspired Raekwon’s last mutiny attempt. But A Better Tomorrow’s thick and moody soundscapes run off-puttingly perpendicular to the group’s cerebral storytelling.

It’s a nightmare getting the Wu-Tang Clan together, so much so that there’s a film about it. 2007 documentary Rock The Bells followed promoter Chang Weisberg’s attempt to persuade all 10 members to perform at his festival of the same name. Nigga, you can sit on the stage, just give me one minute, man, yells an exasperated RZA down the phone to an awol Ol’ Dirty Bastard (four months before his death). A Better Tomorrow’, the New York rap collective’s sixth album and first since 2007’s ‘8 Diagrams’ (discounting the recent one-copy-only ‘Once Upon A Time In Shaolin’, from which we’ve only heard a 51-second sample, featuring Cher of all people), arrives over three years after it was initially talked up by Raekwon.

Wu-Tang Clan are currently working on their upcoming album A Better Tomorrow, due for release in July 2013, the press release read. Yet July 2013 came and went and so did the end of the year. Sadly, the 20th anniversary of the group was only observed by the tour, with no news of a release date for the new album. One year later, in April 2014, Raekwon announced that he had gone on strike from the Wu-Tang Clan, and was not interested in participating on A Better Tomorrow, due to the sound of the production. This shit is not right

No rawness or energy, this is like a high school reunion where all the cool badass kids went on to become boring and tame shells of their former selves. This album is as sterile as its cover. Best Track: Necklace Worst Track: Miracle.
