This year marks the WU-TANG CLAN's 25th Anniversary. Adding on to one of the great legacies in hip hop history, U-GOD prepares to release his new solo album, Venom, on 3-30-2018 via of Babygrande Records.
"Bit Da Dust" features U-God at his lyrical best, with the gritty, classic Wu-Tang sound and it further reminds us why the legacy of the Clan continues to live on and why the legendary group remains so influential. "Bit Da Dust" is U-God's reflection on the current climate of hip-hop where artists are becoming disposable and lack longevity. "The image portrayed on the cover artwork is no one in particular. It is merely a play on the song which clearly gives good advice. If you don't play by the rules you get stuck for your jewels" U-God stated.
In addition to his new solo-album, U-God recently released a new memoir/book entitled Raw: My Journey Into The Wu Tang on 3-6-2018 and is currently on his first solo U.S. tour in five years (the remaining RAW/Venom Tour-Dates are listed below) in support of both his new album and book.
