“Wu-Tang Clan is excited to join the Warner family of esteemed artists,” they said in a statement. “After 20 years in the business with different label outlets, we are delighted to be amongst a team of industry professionals who understand our unique artistry and will help spread it to the masses unadulterated. RZA and his brother Divine CEO of Wu-Tang felt synergy with executive/producer Rob Cavallo and Cameron Strang, and decided Warner Bros. would be a suitable home for their brand and band, and a great place to carry on the Wu-Tang saga. In the words of Ghostface, when it comes to being signed to Warner Bros., ‘we’re getting Bugs Bunny money.'”

Wu-Tang Clan released their first album ‘Enter The Wu-Tang’ in 1993 but it was the next record ‘Wu-Tang Forever’ in 1997 that established them worldwide and reached no. 1 on the US album chart.

‘A Better Tomorrow’ will be the first new music from Wu-Tang Clan since ‘8 Diagrams’ in 2007.

“Wu-Tang Clan is responsible for creating a deep discography of iconic rap music, spawning incredibly successful careers for each of the group’s individual members, and launching Wu-Tang into a full-fledged brand beyond their music,” Cameron Strang, Warner Brothers Records CEO told Billboard. “Two decades on, they remain a major force in hip hop. I speak for everyone on our team when I say how thrilled we are to be the new home for one of hip hop’s most influential groups. This is an exciting day in the history of Warner Bros. Records, and we can’t wait to contribute to the next phase of their careers.”

Wu-Tang Clan formed in Staten Island, New York in 1993. RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa were all original members of the group with the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard (ODB) who died on November 13, 2004.

Cappadonna was the unofficial tenth member of the band but made a full-time addition to the line-up after the death of ODB.
