iNTeLL (of 2nd Generation Wu) releases new album and video with R.A. The Rugged Man
iNTeLL, son of Wu-Tang Clan’s U-God, and carrier of the legendary Hip Hop collective’s creative torch, ponders an important philosophical and theoretical question with producer DLP on his new album ‘Computers For The Hood’.
“What could a young mind in the hood do with a computer? Create art? Start a business? I’m not sure, but if I could give out computers for the hood to find out, I would,” he contemplates.
The record aims to unite old-school with new school, featuring guest spots from hip-hop legends Method Man, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, R.A. The Rugged Man, Ruste Juxx, among others.
The journey to ‘Computers For The Hood’ was a long and arduous one for iNTeLL, as he was having creative burnout, in addition to ongoing stresses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, this road has led to the best work of his career so far.
‘Computers For The Hood’ is a tight 11-track showcase of creative partner DLP’s raw old school-influenced production that still has a modern flair perfect for 2021.
The beatwork serves as the perfect canvas for iNTeLL to confidently lay down memorable bars, hooks, and stories that serve as a perfect homage to his home turf of Staten Island.
The lead single and video “Know The Gospel” featuring R.A. The Rugged Man is out now and you can give it a watch below…
