rzaFor those of you who are into hip hop, chances are you might have heard of the somewhat legendary hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan. Now the group has a lot of members, many of whom have embarked on solo careers whether it be as a solo artist or as a producer, and probably one of the more famous members is RZA.

In case you’re wondering who is he or why he looks familiar, it is because he has starred in several movies in the past, such as G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Now it looks like he will be attempting to launch a new music album, and interestingly enough this music album, according to Billboard, will be produced and inspired by songs from Atari video games such as Pong, Space Invaders, and so on.

This is actually the second time that RZA and Atari have teamed up, although it will be interesting to see how RZA will be able to take those classic 8-bit video game sounds and turn them into songs, but then again hip-hop has been known to sample across a variety of genres so it will probably work.

According to the artist, “I’m so excited to work on these iconic games to deliver what I believe will be one of my best albums. I am going to invite some of my friends to join me and it will be Game On with the first beat!” Details and a release date have yet to be confirmed but they will be shared later on.
