This is entirely for real. After stopping production on the Chinese Democracy-esque work in the making, Liquid Swords 2: The Return of the Shadowboxer, GZA recently announced that he will now release an audio-visual product that would be “in a league of it’s own” entitled Dark Matter.
“I recently met with quantum physicists who deepened my interest in the cosmos and gave me further inspiration for this next album” GZA said in a press statement. “I want to take my listeners on a journey through deep space and deconstruct the idea of science fiction.” No word yet on any further album details, so stay tuned for more.
This follows after GZA/The Genius’ lecture in Harvard in December, with a visit to an MIT Lab. Now he also has plans for lecturing at MIT, NYU, and Cornell.
